Timmayfest 2014

What is Timmayfest?
Timmayfest is a BMW/Mercedes Benz/Exotics car meet put together by true enthusiasts. It is not a car "show" (though we do hand our some trophies) and there is no entrance fee. It is just a gathering of people who share a passion for high performance driving machines. Timmayfest really started out as a small BMW/Mercedes car meet of people who only knew each other by talking over online car forums such as M5board.com, Ohiobimmers.com, and MBworld.com. We decided it was finally time to get together and meet the people behind the computer screen. We chose to hold it in Columbus, Ohio since it was a central location to those involved. I volunteered to organize it along with help from a few other local guys. Jokingly, we named it "Timmayfest" after my screen name that I use on the before mentioned forums, Timmay77, which against my better judgement, it has remained. The word spread that there was going to be a car meet in Ohio through other online forums, thus growing. We managed to put together 130 cars the first year (2010), over 200 the second year (2011), growing to 250+ in 2012 and 2013. We had cars attending from as far away as Rancho Cucamonga, CA, 2 years in a row!

This year we be raising money to donate to Cancer research/treatment. We are currently requesting info from Saint Jude's Children's Hospital to be our charity for the year. I will update when we finalize things.


Event schedule:

Thursday, June 5th - Arrival Dinner - 7pm Dinner will be held at Dave and Buster's in the Polaris Mall. We have reserved a private banquet room. The restaurant is located on the North-East side of the Mall.

Dave and Buster's
1554 Polaris Parkway, Suite 206
Columbus, OH 43240
Phone 614-310-6800

Friday, June 6th - Dyno Day - IPS Motorsports - 9am - 2pm - We will again be holding a Dyno Day at IPS Motorsports, 2 pulls for $50. If you would like to have your car dyno'd, PLEASE call IPS and preregister. They will dyno as many cars as they can in the time given. Don't forget about the trophies for highest HP numbers!

IPS Motorsports
8333 Green Meadows Dr. N. Suite C
Lewis Center, OH 43035
740-657-3278

Friday, June 6th - Drag Night - Marion County International Raceway - 4pm - 11pm - We have privately rented MCIR for our use, mostly thanks to a member of the M5board who picked up the ENTIRE RENTAL FEE on his own. He is an avid drag racer who loves the sport. I can't thank him enough, it has taken a huge weight off of my shoulders. Due to his generousity, 100% of this year's entrance fee will go into the pot for the charity! We are only asking for a $20 donation to run your car down the track as many times as you want. From past year's experience, you can run as many times as your car can take. 20, 30, 40 times. Have fun!!

We will also be traveling to MCIR, caravan style, leaving from the Hilton hotel at 3pm.

Marional County International Raceway
2303 Richwood-Larue Road
La Rue, OH 43332-9293

Saturday, June 7th - Timmayfest 2014 - Quaker Steak and Lube Polaris - 10am - 3pm - We are meeting at the same venue as the last 4 years, Quaker Steak and Lube in Polaris. It is a very convenient location with plenty of hotels, restaurants, and the Polaris Mall right across the street. We will of have a DJ spinning some tunes and plenty of vendors with items on display. We will be selling Timmayfest T-shirts, police escort tickets (info below)and raffle tickets to raise money for the charity. The raffle will be for items donated by our sponsors starting at 3pm, along with the awards ceremony for the traveling trophies. (info below)

Quaker Steak and Lube
8500 Lyra Drive
Columbus, OH 43240

We decided to have a little fun and pass out some "traveling trophies" for the following categories.

Gents favorite
Ladies favorite
Worst luck
Best 1/4 mile slicks
Best 1/4 mile street
Farthest traveled
Highest HP 8 cyl and up
Highest HP 6 cyl and down

The way it works if you win: You are awarded the trophy and your name is engraved onto a plate that is with each trophy. You are obligated to either mail me the trophy or come back to Timmayfest the next year to try and win it again. I think everyone had fun with it.


Saturday, June 7th - Police escort to dinner - - Please arrive by 5:00pm - We are hiring a police escort again this year to travel to the restaurant. Tickets to participate are $10. They can be purchased at Timmayfest or at the entrance to the IPS parking lot prior to lining up for the escort. This is one of my favorite parts of the weekend every year. They COMPLETELY shut down all of the highways and surface roads for us! Last year we had over 100 cars in the escort and it was over 1 mile long! We will meet at IPS Motorsports (8333 Green Meadows Dr. N. Suite C, Lewis Center, OH 43035) at 5:15pm for a driver's meeting and to be lined up by our police escort, leaving promptly at 5:30pm, dinner is scheduled for 7pm at Cantina Laredo, 8791 Lyra Dr, Columbus, OH 43240 (614) 781-1139

Escort meeting/starting location:
IPS Motorsports
8333 Green Meadows Dr. N. Suite C
Lewis Center, Ohio 43035

Dinner location:
Cantina Loredo
8791 Lyra Dr.
Columbus, Ohio 43240
(614)781-1139

Here is a note from an officer concerning a police escort:

"A full blown escort by 2 cruisers and 2 bikes is serious business. We can't have guys jumping line and acting like idiots. You will never know when a bike is flying up at 120mph to get the next on ramp blocked. If you jump line, it could cause serious injury to that officer. If you can't follow the rules during this 15 mile escort, you will be asked to not attend dinner, and you WILL be ticketed. So please, everyone act responsibly and let's have a blast!"

If you wish to not participate in the escort and just meet us at the restaurant, that is fine too. Dinner reservations are set at 7pm.

ATTENTION:

I want to let everyone know a few things.

First, when parking at the Hilton, if you park in the fire lane for ANYTHING except checking in and checking out, you will be towed without warning. We had some issues the last 2 years. They have been very lenient with us, but they will not be any longer, which leads me to my next warning....

PLEASE do not do burn outs, donuts, or litter in the Hilton parking lot. The Hilton is the perfect hotel for this event. I do not want them to ban us from holding our event there.

Thank you.

That's a cool way to raise money for charity!

Here is what I think of when I hear the name:



Also just read through the whole post I can't believe you have a police escort. I'll bet that's cool wish it were closer to me!
