I’ve known the owners of Rogue Engineering well before the company came into existence. Mark and Ben are both extremely generous individuals so it came as no shock to me when I heard they were hosting an event to benefit charity. All of the proceeds from this year’s charity fundraiser went to support the Diabetes Research Institute (DRI).
As expected, Rogue had an impressive turn out for this year’s gathering. The event was not limited to BMW badged automobiles as there were a couple of Nissan GTRs, a Lamborghini Gallardo, C7 Corvette, and quite a few other cars that lacked a Bavarian accent.
Matt Russell of BMW of North America surprised us by stopping by with an Austin Yellow F82 M4. I never got a chance to sit behind the wheel of one at NYIAS, so I didn’t hesitate when I was offered a seat this time. Unfortunately I couldn’t drive it, but I’m sold. Just take a look at the name of the website… BMW owner for life. Looks like another trip to Germany is in my future once these receive an LCI/ZCP. I’m guessing Santorini Blue again, but Signal Green is also a possibility…
As always I ran into a lot of old friends and made a few new ones. I can’t wait for the next one!
