[DML] Fall Tour VIII



Fall Tour VIII,  Thanks to All.

My sincere thank to all who came out and participated in Fall Tour 
VIII!
I would have a long list of names just to thank all the people who 
helped out and made this event a success so I will just thank all who 
participated because that is ultimately what makes a DeLorean Event a 
great DeLorean Event!

Getting on and off of Long Island is not easy or inexpensive but we 
had people from 6 or more states and more than a Dozen DeLoreans 
participate in this event.
Many new faces along with Fall Tour regulars and yes Gary and Janice 
who never missed any of the 8 Fall Tours!

I think that all would agree that the best part of the Tour was the 
Riverhead Raceway.
Whether it was your first time to a live stock car race or you are a 
weekly fan of the sport, the figure 8 racing is unlike any racing you 
have ever seen live. This was followed by the Miller Lite Champion 
ship demolition derby and  finally a school bus demolition derby. 

  

I have wanted to do a DeLorean event at the Riverhead Raceway for 
many years now (tried once before but I could not get everyone 
together). Unfortunately the Riverhead Raceway for a variety of 
reasons ( location, short season, and a few other  things) really 
does not lend it itself to the traditional Fall Tour Format that I 
have tried to use in the past.  I think I can safly say for all those 
who attended, I think they are probably glad that we still managed to 
have a DeLorean event that included this historic and unique racing 
or should I say spectacular automotive spectacle. I will probably not 
do another Fall Tour at the Riverhead Raceway but as a summer fun run 
or part of another DeLorean event I think that as long as the track 
stays open we may see an annual DeLorean Riverhead Raceway event in 
the future. With the right hotel this could become a more popular 
event than the fall tour and maybe as big as the DMA spring social?  

Here is a link to some amateur video footage from a previous 
Riverhead Raceway figure 8 race (also know as the Crazy 8 in years 
past). It is not even close to depicting what this is like live but 
take a look and talk to anyone who was there last night and ask them 
how cool this is.

With a little Luck we will have a Fall Tour 9 and 10 but let me 
recover from this one first. If we make it to a 10th Fall tour and 
Gary and Janice make all 10 Tours I will by them both Dinner. It will 
be at a fancy French Restaurant Zee White Castle or Jock in a 
Boxxx :)  

Don't Forget the LBI Christmas parade Sat Dec 6???? In South New 
Jersey (Gary Gore has been getting more and more  DeLoreans together 
ever year and it has also become one of the largest annual DeLorean 
events in the area) I am looking forward to that. I don't want to 
miss. 
For me the LBI parade is Close enough to Atlantic City that it just 
seems wrong not to go to both!
Note: Casino accommodations are at their lowest cost in the 1st 2 
weeks of December so you can usually find a casino room deal on a 
Friday night at less than 30% of what you would pay in the summer. 

Thank all  you again!

Mike & Lori
