    I thought that as well whilst taking the pictures! Friday is just the registration day, lots of people from all over the US and Canada drive in and it was after the record breaking attempt at the longest caravan of M cars in the world from LA. This was the Palazzo hotel everyone meets up, register for the event and just relax for the day, main show is today and I'm just off there in the next few minutes.

    Cheers, Dennis!

    Hi

    Just got around to uploading them, took around 350 in total ! here's some more for you !

    Friday - Palazzo hotel. This was 3 levels underground and about 1/3 of the available space was reserved for all the MFest cars. People travel from all corners of the USA to meet up on this day and the car park was packed with cars by around 12-1pm as many more arrived and got checked into their rooms. The Palazzo offers a service for discounted rates for show attendees and putting them all on the same floor where possible - its a fantastic hotel too! The cars literally become a 'weekend long' car show or collection if you will! and theres always lots of people taking a look !

    Friday night

    After all the registration process and milling about the car park and meeting other enthusiasts, it's time to head up to the Las Vegas Speedway located to the north east city limits and about a 30 minute drive from the Palazzo - make that about 20 minutes if you drive at UK speeds ;)

    The dragstrip is here and it's time to pit car against car to put those performance mods to the test ! I only got a few pictures here..

    [​IMG]

    I parked my Dodge Charger quite far away from the BMW's and saw this pull up and the occupants wearing their MFest tshirts!;

    [​IMG]

    Now that's pure baller status! A Maybach to run around in !

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    I have some video's I took, but I'm unsure of how to compress them etc to then upload and host.

    However...

    http://youtu.be/HWA2oKiUQHU

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HWA2oKiUQHU

    EDIT - sorry, no idea on how to embed the video ..!

    Very very impressive indeed! bet that's the first time many have seen a Maybach on a dragstrip!

    On the night, a stupendously quick Nissan GTR and a 1000 whp Porsche 911 were scorching up the track. The guy who had built himself a ridiculously quick E30 Turbo was having some great runs and then seemed to have some issues and was posting slower results which was bit of a shame.. (there's more videos uploaded on youtube, just search Mfest VI or 6 )

    More to come..

    Saturday

    The main day!

    I got to the venue just after the gates opened for attendees to be allowed on site, all the sponsors etc were busy finishing setting up etc and there was already quite a few people there. Very, very warm even for 830ish am ! throughout the rest of the day, temperatures hit up at 98F ! a nice dessert wind though!

    All I can say is the standard of cars is extremely high, more cars arrived from others who hadn't made it up the day previously, including some cars that had been worked on and finished ready for the show just a couple hours previously!
