Event Coverage: Bimmercruise 2012 & BMWCC Autoslalom - Aug. 26 @Mosport DDT

Bimmercruise 2012 took place this year at Mosport's Driver Development Track in conjunction with the BMW Club of Canada's monthly auto-slalom event. Combined this was the largest and most exciting BMW event in the Toronto area.  Bimmercruise started back in 2000 when a group of close friends came up with the idea to start a BMW only car show geared towards BMW enthusiast and it's grown every year since then. 

As a participant in the Auto-slalom event, I didn't have a lot of time for pictures. I did however get some shots while on the track marshalling. With an open course, not many pylons were hit, I was able to bring my camera with me and snap some photos as the cars went by. Take a look at a few and don't forget to visit the photo gallery at the end.

The Stance Factory crew was out in full force with several customer cars including 3 S54 swapped cars and 1 S62 swapped 540i Touring. The crew cleaned up with a total of 11 trophies and great recognition for all their hard work and late nights.

A huge thank you to the organizers and crew is deserved, this was easily one of the best-organized and most enjoyable Bimmercruise or even car show that I've had the pleasure of attending in a long while. Randy did a an amazing job organizing a great show for us Bimmer enthusiast that was not only free to attend but a high quality event full of great cars, trophies and things to do. Also a big thank you to all of the volunteers, the track sessions wouldn't have ran smoothly with you and these guys and girls worked hard to keep the day running.
