Personal Invite to G8/GTO Owners iNternational Event to Base G8 Owners!

I pop over into this thread periodically and read about some really neat things being done with Base G8s out there, and I keep hoping to see this stuff in person at G.O.N.E. (G8/GTO Owners iNternational Event). This will be the event's third year, and we have had only 2 Base G8s represented the first two years. They have been very nice rides, but I'd love to see more Base G8s join them. We had a number of Base G8 show and race tropies that got thrown away because the trophies were custom, and there were no cars there to win them. That is a shame!

Please consider this a personal invitation to all of you Base G8 owners out there! We want to see your cars at this event too! It doesn't matter if your car is bone stock, lightly modified, or heavily modified. We have race and show classes to cover the range. Please join us this year, and show what you've got!

Go to www.g8gone.com for event info and a link to the registration site.

There are alot of Base G8 owners who aren't so far away though, and those are the folks that I'm appealing to. One of the two Base G8s the last 2 years came all the way from Louisiana, and he plans to be back again this year, so it's definitely worth the trip.

Next year will likely be in TX to coincide with the inaugural V8 Supercar Series race in the US (if they would ever get around to announcing a date), so it may be a longer drive for you.

Sounds like a nice journey. My round trip last year was nearly 15,000 clicks. Granted I didn't take the most direct route, but still.. it was well worth the drive! This year I'm estimating it at a little over 17,000 clicks.

One of the ways I justify making such a long trip is so I can get out and see all the beautiful places around the US. There are so many great landmarks, National Parks, etc. Make the G8 meet just one stop along the way.
