Welcome a new forum - Cayman Motoring (http://caymanregister.org/forumdisplay.php?f=105)

We are happy to announce a new forum for our members to share photos and stories about driving their Caymans and having fun in non-track events. Just cruising to a new road, gathering with other owners for a meal in some new restaurant, checking out the produce stands in the countryside, going on a picnic, or you name it.

There are many ways that Cayman owners get a lot of pleasure from driving their cars and we would like to hear about it and have it shared here. So, we scraped around and found ten more of the Porsche produced collectible Cayman DVDs and will give one to each of the first ten members who post stories plus photos about their favorite drives.

Go to the Cayman Motoring (http://caymanregister.org/forumdisplay.php?f=105) forum to get started.

I think I'm going to drop the camera into the car and go find my favorite twistie section. Is there a bonus for video footage? :smile:

Small clarification guys. If you received an e-mail I may have made it sound like all you need to do is post a reply here to win a DVD set. Please see post 1 for specific instructions.

To win one of the DVD's you will have to follow the contest instructions "give one to each of the first ten members who post stories plus photos about their favorite drives." We are "paying" you to go have fun and let us enjoy your fun as well.

Saying a few words here does not enter you in the contest...

Now all you have to do to win, is show and tell us about a drive you've done in words and pictures in a new thread in the Cayman Motoring forum!

Will be looking forward to seeing you and Elizabeth this weekend - tell us all about the trip on the CR...

I need these. If I don't win how do I get them? The odds are in your favor if you get in your Cayman and go take a nice drive and post some interesting narrative and some photos. It is the first ten after all. Go-G0-G0.

My most memorable drive was to Road America this year for the LerMans Series races. We parked in the Porscheplatz and enjoyed a full nine hours of enjoying the beauty of many Porsche vehicles owned by my fellow PCA members and the Porsche GT3 Flying Lizards being prepared in the paddock and cruising onto the race track during their trials. What an event. I'll never forget that notable smell of fuel and brakes from the vehicles on the RA grid's straight-away. These cars are made to run hard.

Disclaimer: I'm taking myself out of the running for the DVD, as I have already won one here on our great site, but I did want to post this write up from a trip I took about a year ago...



I was fortunate enough to be able to drive the entire Blue Ridge Parkway this past weekend, from it's beginning point in Virginia all the way to the end in Cherokee, NC. It has been many years since I've driven the whole length, and this was truly a trip to remember.

http://caymanregister.org/picture.php?albumid=331&pictureid=3470</O:p><O:p></O:p>

My wife was participating on a team running the Blue Ridge Relay Run (12 people running 208 miles from Mt. Rogers, VA to Asheville, NC over 36 stages!) and so I took the opportunity to drive the Parkway while she was running and met the team at the finish line in Asheville.
<O:p</O:p
For those who have never been, the Parkway is an amazing and unique National Park, consisting of 469 miles of twisting roadway cut through and along the crest of the Blue Ridge Mountains in VA and NC. The speed limit is 45 mph (and speeding is a Federal offense!), but the Parkway is not about speed - it's about beauty. And besides, the occasional "romp" to 50 mph can make the driving more than a little fun!
<O:p</O:p
I started my drive first thing on Friday morning, beginning at Rockfish Gap, VA and my drive took me to many points along the way to see the sights, eat some great food, and generally enjoy the amazing weather, scenery, and driving oppportunities. (The high of 67 meant it was windows down cruising weather the whole trip, which was a great bonus after our summer heat in Raleigh.)

My Cayman splits the rocks!

I ended my first day in Little Switzerland (Mile Post 335) and stayed at a great little funky spot called the Alpine Inn. The Inn is tacked to the top of a cliff resulting in amazing views, but if you fall off the back balcony it's about 150 feet before you'll hit anything!

I have to say again the weather was spectacular and the scenery as pretty as I've ever seen it on the Parkway.
<O:p
The combination of the clean mountain air, the sound of the flat six, and the feel of the wheel through the many twists and turns is something I'll always remember.
<O:p
I highly encourage everyone to take a drive there some time. It is worth the effort!

Speedy - Since you already have one of the collector's DVDs from a previous contest, we may have to find something else to recognize a great post. This is exactly what we were hoping members would post...

In fact, it is now it's own thread in the Cayman Motoring forum for others to see and comment on...

Wow - thanks! The trip itself was a pretty darned nice gift, so no worries there! :smile:

My Cayman DVD set prize arrived today too. The DVD was produced for the 2007 model year, which is a perfect match for my car.

Thanks to Mike, PCA & the Cayman Register Team!

The fall foliage season is a great way to snatch up one of these DVDs. Hit the road, take the camera, share some pictures and some info about your favorite foliage route and you could take away a DVD set.
