On 5/2/2010 at Gulfstream (Casino/RaceTrack) Park Hallandale, Beach Florida – next session from 11am-1pm. Go figure I didnt receive any info in the mail, nor anything from my dealer. Luckily I live right down the block. I am going to see if I can get some seat time in the new 5.
Of all the ways to find out about this .. the morning news (WSVN 10). As I am sure many of you, I have attended several of these ride and drive events in the past- they are usually pretty fun. Looks like they have a few competitors on hand to drive as well – Lexus GS, Mercedes E, etc.
