EuroSunday Fresno / Area 2008

EuroSunday Fresno / Area 2008
http://www.eurosunday.net/fresno

EuroSunday© Fresno is open to the community and local car clubs. The original event was ignited by some local Sacramento Ferrari owners and has grown to include all types of European vehicles and many different locations. The event has a wide range of cars and motorcycles from the classic Morgan, MG, Ducati, Aston Martin, and Fiat all the way to the Lamborghini, Ferrari, and Ford GT. EuroSunday is geared towards the super, exotic, rare, and vintage vehicles. These events give the owners a venue to share their cars and motorcycles with those who rarely see such vehicles on the road. We welcome all enthusiasts no matter what they drive (Euro or not) to come out and participate. This is an open invitation to all who can respect the location, the attendees, the vehicles, our codes of conduct, and the law.

There is NO cost and NO rsvp needed for the event.

The event is on the 1st Sunday of each month.

Re: EuroSunday Fresno / Area 2008

Hello Everyone,

Well, the first EuroSunday Fresno is now in the books. The day started off at 6:30 a.m. with a few diehards meeting up for the breakfast club. A Triumph, Pantera, and a BMW M3 made up the early morning car caravan to Bentley’s Fresh Market after some fun conversations about EuroSunday and other car related topics.

Upon arriving at Bentley’s we were given 25 parking spots, with know one knowing what to expect. The 25 designated spots were gone in a matter of minutes, due to the wonderful turn out. The limited parking lead to some interesting parking issues as we had to park the cars in a fashion differently than the traditional EuroSunday format, but we made it work. The traditional EuroSunday format consists of having the exotic, rare, and vintage cars showcased up front. Instead we had a inter mingling of cars parking together which still turned out to be a great mix of different marquees and models.

The cars that showed were absolutely amazing. A few members of the British car club were out in their stunning E type Jags, several Aston Martin’s, Lotus Elise’s, and a beautiful collection of other British makes. The Ford GT and Vipers showed up in force to the event along with multiple Ferraris. The amazing Ferrari turn out ranged from F430’s, F360’s, and 308’s just to name a few. A group from San Jose showed up just in time for the drive in their F360, Testarossa, and 308. Several BMW’s and VW’s were in attendance and we had a great showing by the local NSX guys. A Lamborghini Murcielago snuck in later at the event along with a few Porsches and a great variety of other Euro makes. We counted about 100 cars on the days tally for the show part of the EuroSunday event.

The drive after the event had a wonderful turn out, with about 30 cars going on the drive we weaved our way back through the hills behind Fresno. The group got a little thinned out, but everyone had a great time on some good roads. The after the event lunch at Daily Grill was the largest group ever for a EuroSunday event with about 50 people present, everyone chatted and had great conversation about the cars and the days event.

With the first event in the books and with such a wonderful turn out we look forward to seeing our new friends out at the next EuroSunday, and look forward to watching the continual growth among the new EuroSunday Fresno family.

EuroSunday features a car or bike to be the car/bike of the month. This month we chose Troy and his beautiful wide body 356 Porsche.

EuroSunday Fresno Recap:

Fresno is quite frankly one of the scariest EuroSunday events I have been to so far. Now think about what I am saying for a minute. With 4 Ford GTs and close to 10 Dodge Vipers in attendance there was an abundance of horsepower. But with Whipple Supercharger being a local Fresno company, many of these freakishly fast cars were sporting 200 or even 300 extra horsepower. That means some of these cars were making close to 800 brake horsepower. While there was a plethora of events going on around California such as the Ferrari races at Infineon, the turn out for EuroSunday was still healthy with close to 75 cars.

Among these 75 cars there was a handful of diversity. Everything from the Porsche, Audi, Volkswagen, Austin Heeley, MG, Mini, Lamborghini, Lotus, Bentley, and BMW made a showing. At one point during the event a gentleman with a Orange Lamborghini Diablo showed up and I asked the guy if he was here for EuroSunday. His response was not what I expected, “who are you and what is EuroSunday?” Turns out he was stopping for coffee, but instead I got to sell this guy something even more addictive. He was hooked! It seems while Fresno is one of the smallest cities we host an event in, it generates some of the most powerful and most beautiful cars EuroSunday has.

Right on schedule the group rolled out for an 86 mile journey up through the foothills. We headed up towards Squaw Valley and hooked a left down Elmwood Rd. Now I am not sure about you, but I felt like a heard of cattle with the number of cattle guards on the road. One Lotus fell victim with his exhaust system taking a severe blow, but after some side-of-the-road manipulation he was back up and rolling. Shortly, the group rolled back into Bentley’s Fresh Market to chow down on some great food. While it may have marked the end of EuroSunday Fresno for May, I can tell you I am already looking forward to the event next month.

Cool Re: EuroSunday Fresno / Area 2008

What does this have to do with the K1200LT, nor any BMW motorcycle event?

Is this not advertising, which I thought the list did not allow but under the vendor section?

Just Saying...?

Just Bob.

No entry $$ for EuroSundays, no rsvps. Very similar to a Saturday morning at A&S. Just show up and mingle. EuroSunday is encouraging motorcycles to attend. I bring my K1200S to the one in Sacramento and see other BMW and Ducatis attending regularly.

Hi larrystiver, How is this similar to the Sat. mornings at A&S, this IS a BMW bike dealer. I have been to one of these events and it was in a Mall parking lot and you might see 6 bikes there, with hardly any BMW bikes, nor anyone interested in talking bikes since these are car events. Even the guy posting does not have a BMW bike, or any other bike for that matter, according to his profile.

Just saying.....

Just Bob.

All great points. I was one of about 8 bikes last time (most of them from A&S!) The EuroSunday event is as much for bikes as cars, but question is how to get the bikes out there and letting everyone know it's just as much for us as them? M3Dragon is more comfortable in a cage. He has a budding interest in bikes, but the fiance has said "no" to each effort he has put forward on getting serious about getting a bike. FYI...I started EuroSunday two years ago and have encouraged bikes to have a presence as much as cars...with the exception of my riding group, A&S buddies, and a few Ducati friends...we just can't get a strong sustained showing. We are doing a Marquee event for bikes in October to gain more recognition, but without strong and consistent showing...Yours is the fair and prevailing feeling/thought.
