Drive 4 Corners

by Adam Tharp

 

Come one, come all, to the largest annual mountain BMW gathering in the Rocky Mountain Region! The intent is to create an event that cultivates a community of BMW owners in the Rocky Mountain region and beyond; a place for enthusiasts to gain a sense of community that celebrates our cars just as much as it celebrates those who own them.

If you’re looking for a way to beat the heat in Arizona, this summer, and need an excuse for a weekend getaway then look no further.  BMW CCA members and non-members are welcome, and come from all over the Southwest. We are planning to arrange a caravan, for those that will be driving up from Arizona.  Details on the caravan will be forwarded to those that register and RSVP below.
