DC, MD, VA, DE, PA McLaren Club

I am considering starting a McLaren Car Club. Sterling has told me that they would be happy to host events and help with joint track days, drives or whatever. I would like to build this off the national club that has been started if that makes sense. Is there interest out there?

There is already a US Owners Club started. As you can see from the link below, I'm one of the guys working on it. We would love to get more members in your area and would also love to have some local leadership in the part of the country you mentioned in your thread title.

Sounds good to me. Would be pretty cool to do some F1 viewing events at the dealership, backroad drives, etc. There seems to be quite a few cars in the area.. there were four at Katie's C&C on Saturday and later that day I went for a drive and passed an orange 720 as soon as I got on the road. Keep us in the loop!

I bet we can get 20 or so people interested pretty easily. Should be fun.

I had a good call with the club founders last week. I would encourage you to sign up on the club site, I believe it is free for now. I will keep working on it when I can but as soon as the weather allows we can organize a meet and drive or something.

Spring is hopefully just around the corner in the DMV area, if this past weekend was any inclination. There is a small threat of snow this upcoming weekend, but thought I might revitalize this thread and see who's around/interested in getting their cars together.

While I don't have a McLaren, I am pretty handy with a camera and would love to document the fun! I'm in DC, and you can check out my work on my flickr page in the sig. Finally wrote this licensing exam a week ago, and have been itching to get back behind the lens.

there's an italian car show happening this Saturday (May 12) out at Nottoway Park from 11-4pm. I'm sure they wouldn't mind a couple of english interlopers. Hope to see some of you out there!
