Four W113 enthusiasts meeting at an event. Maybe a shot worthy a title page for Pagoda World

There you go, well done! See how easy it is to get a group together in your area ... find out who lives in your area.

One of the options here on the site is “Members” explore it ....

Click on Members then click on Memberlisting and when the dataBase opens click on Location this will sort the entire dataBase by location for you. All you need to do now is page down to your neck of the woods and find other members in your area. Contact some of them and plan a coffe and car day ..... it’s that easy.

After all there is nothing better among us Pagoda drivers then get together share some information and experience about our cars. Besides, as they say, it’s not only about cars, it’s mostly about people and the Frends we make. So give it a try, you can do it.

Yes, it is Mid-Ohio Madness! 

Dieter, you are so right.  I got to meet Mike Simon for the first time, and he loves just 2 hours away.  Very knowledgeable, and great guy.

and I do have a new appreciation for those "S" turns on the road tracks.  Can't imagine being in an F1 going 150 mph.

Have fun guys!

Mike:

Yes, the "Esses" are tricky. You can reach 150mph on the back stretch before you start braking for the turns and then it requires careful throttle control to go through the Esses. I dropped a bike right at the spot in the picture between you and Joe. Although I made it through it upright many times.
