Tour starts at 1:00 PM.

Highlights of the meet:

The tour/drive will around Durham region's winding back country roads and one helluva corkscrew which will test the limits of your driving skill and your car's handling.

The first stop will be at Markus Glarner Motors where you will meet in person Markus himself and get a chance to talk to him, ask him questions and maybe he will show a few '02 maintenance stuff. Take pictures of his race cars and other BMW race cars, like an ex PTG e36 M3 race car, a schnitzer '02 and csl, M1 procars, a factory 3.5 csl race car, etc...

BTW he sells at a reasonable price new and used parts for '02's e21, CS, etc..

The next stop will be at BMW of Canada HQ in Whitby for a group shot maybe see some new BMW's and a Mini Cooper S race car which I saw at the back a few days ago.

Then we will proceed to Heydenshore Park also in Whitby for the picnic and BBQ, you are welcome to bring you own food and soft drinks, we will provide food too, burgers, hot dogs, soda pop. Then maybe more group pics.

If you are coming please let us know and as much as possible get there at before the start of the tour as you do not want to miss going to Markus' shop.
