September 6, 2008 Car Rally and Car Show is ON at Maserati of Baltimore to Benefit the USO Metro

WHO IS THE NEW SEPT. 6, 2008 ROAD RALLY AND BALTIMORE COUNTY CAR SHOW HOST–AND WHAT HAPPENED TO THE VOLUNTEERS FROM “THE CONCORSO” RALLY CREW?

September 6, 2008 it’s on at Maserati of Baltimore. Road Rally in the morning, hang out for a car show in the afternoon. Afterparty with exotic car friends in Little Italy; it’s what we do. And if you are wonder what we are going to call it now that Dave Born and Jon Kendall promotions are out of the business loop? Thank Neil Stylinski of High Road Auto Group for the great new name of our “stick with it” event… it’s our community CALL TO ACTION plan, aptly named:

Maserati of Baltimore Rally for the Troops

We’re all lined up with breakfast and lunch from Ciao Bella Restaurant, Sweet Lela’s Market Cafe, and Adore Entertaining.

We’re happy to have PSA Financial on hand from insurance broker John Lannon.

Kevin Goodman from Chapin Davis Investments will be on hand to say hello.

Patrick Moylan from Signature Flight Support is confirmed to have a kiosk for our clients to peruse.

We’ll also be announcing some upcoming event surprises working in tandem with Patrick and the USO Metro’s Shauna Van Buren AND the Children’s Guild to boot.

Even better, on the day of the rally (09/06/2008) our service team is lined up to have Caffe Dei Miracoli coffee with everyone and answer mechanic and car detail questions both before and after we hit the road. We hope to see the rise of a “Coffee Clutch” tradition come from the event, so start thinking hard about your questions now and we’ll do our collective best to answer them for you.

As for the details about how our event staffing will be handled and run, Adrienne Trout will be ready to help check people in and collect ticket money and donation to the USO Metro for us.

Randy Moss from the Car Corral will also be on hand helping us review the rally setup.

Chuck Leutner from the FCA and Children’s Guild Friends are also going to be on hand to get the word about about the USO Metro initiative (and to help us promote our local civic participation in the Children’s Guild September 28, 2008 “All Italian Car and Motorcycle” Concours D’Elegance exotic car show helping raise money for their non-profit organization in Baltimore’s Inner Harbor “Harbor East”).

September is a busy, busy month for us this year…

Keep in mind half our staff will also be at the Mount Washington Wine, Art, and Jazz festival that Sunday, Sept. 28th, too–so wherever you are in town that day stop by to say hello and check our incredibly cool cars out. Say hello to Chapin Davis there that day–we’ll be parked nearby their booth.

SO THAT’S THE STORY LINE IN A NUTSHELL, ALL TIDIED UP.

WHAT’S UP WITH THE 2008 CONCORSO IN BALTIMORE

YES–THE RALLY INITIATIVE IS STILL GOING STRONG

Despite Dave and Jon’s cancellation notices about our Concorso Rally segment on their personal website, don’t be confused! We are STILL FULLY ON at Maserati of Baltimore supporting the USO. We plan to host our MOB EXOTICS morning rally portion of the event September 6th, 2008 as the event promoters all on our own and Signature Flight Support and Chapin Davis Investments (key sponsors) are on board to help us host an impromptu CAR SHOW in the afternoon.

We’re just calling it “Maserati of Baltimore Rally for the Troops” as a courtesy to “The Concorso” group.

We’ll be rallying starting at 9am as planned on Saturday morning with all our USO Metro friends, Ferrari Maserati of Baltimore and Washington, and Lamborghini MOB EXOTICS clients. Cars can wash up in our service bays from noon until 2. That leaves us 2-6pm for a community car show event–something we simply like to do. The USO Metro is happy to be the beneficiary, too.

THE DETAILS

  1. WE ARE PREPARED FOR 80-100 CARS TO DRIVE OUR RALLY ROUTE (2 PEOPLE PER CAR IS THE REQUIRED SAFE NAVIGATING MINIMUM).
  2. MOB EXOTICS WILL ACCEPT ENTRIES ON AN ADVANCED RESERVATION LIST OR AS A FIRST COME FIRST SERVE.
  3. CAR SHOW SPACES ARE LIMITED TO 100 COMPETING VEHICLES.
  4. OFF-SITE PARKING IS ENCOURAGED FOR SPECTATORS AND LOCAL VISITORS.
  • All rally participants who receive a refund for any portion of “The Concorso: Celebrating the Art of the Automobile” are eligible to attend the rally at NO COST.

  • Guests attending the rally as new ticket holders are requested to make a $25 per car donation.

  • Car Competitors who want a chance to win BEST IN SHOW FOR THE USO will be contributing an additional $50 per entry donation.

  • The USO will be on hand to take additional donations of gifts, money, or simple spectator wishes of support back to the USO Metro lounges at our local area airports.

We appreciate your continued Lamborghini, Maserati, and Ferrari club participation in our Maserati of Baltimore fund raising initiatives. Please make all reservation checks out to the “USO METRO DC”–cash payments will be accepted the day of the event by USO Metro representatives. Updates will be posted on our blog shortly.

CONCLUDING NOTES FROM M.O.B. ABOUT THE 2008 “THE CONCORSO: CELEBRATING THE ART OF THE AUTOMOBILE”

Despite “slow ticket sales” for the other segments of the event, our RALLY TEAM has been rockin’ and is still up and running, wide open, and ready to roll! Thank you, all, for following up. Please contact Jack Davis at mobexotics@gmail.com with ANY questions… and the “official” newsworthy and quotable word from us?

Though we are really going to miss hanging out with the volunteer team folks down at Signature, BWI, and Power Plant LIVE, they have all been invited to come make a day of it with us here at 1628 York Road on September 6th, 2008.

“The CONCORSO: Celebrating the Art of The Automobile”: Mark Your Calendars and Make Your Hotel Reservations NOW to Visit Baltimore September 6-7, 2008

logo

Friends and families of Maserati of Baltimore, M.O.B. Exotics, Lamborghini Baltimore, Maserati of Washington, Ferrari of Washington, and Lamborghini Washington take note! There is a wonderful opportunity coming up this fall to play in traffic with your exotic cars, have a great time, and to raise some money for a very worthy cause–benefiting our soldiers and heroes of the United States Armed Forces through the charitable efforts of the USO Metro non-profit organization.

Saturday September 6th launching from the Maserati of Baltimore location at 1628 York Road in “Lutherville Timonium” [according to most Nav and GPS devices], we’ll be hosting a ROAD RALLY touring the northern Maryland regions and finishing with a touch of magic right back at home from Baltimore’s LITTLE ITALY. The exact course is being determined now, but drivers and co-pilots can expect to visit Maryland’s soaring heights and lush county grounds while they wind their way about the lakes and mountains, returning to the dealership landing spot to have a quick treat from downtown. Offering a fun rally style for everyone, we’ll be rewarding our most attentive teams with some terrific M.O.B. Exotics Race Fan Boutique certificates.

On that same day, later that evening Saturday, September 6, speed and travel fans can head over to the Baltimore Washington Airport Signature Flight Support Terminal area to visit the next leg of the weekend events. Aptly titled, “Wings and Wheels”, participants will get an up close and personal look at all kinds of exotic cars, planes, military vehicles, and private jets. With great assistance from BWI and Signature Flight Support, crowds are sure to be “wowed”. Patrick Moylan, the Signature host, is the gentlemen to meet at this great show!

On Sunday, September 7, 2008, the USO Metro Team will be following through again with a huge CONCORSO event hosted at the POWERPLANT LIVE, making Baltimore’s Inner Harbor an even better looking and sounding venue for car lovers to day or weekend trip for this event. With over 5,000 visitors already expected to attend, you will want to register early to be sure to get your Pit Passes and car placement for this event. As spectators ourselves for this event, we are anxious to see all the cars they have lined up to bring in from car clubs all over the Mid-Atlantic region. We are sure this will be a spectacular “brighter than fireworks” Baltimore event!

For more information about the events of the day and weekend, please visit the USO CONCORSO link by clicking HERE. They are still actively seeking volunteers and event sponsors to help raise money for the USO, so please… if you are interested in participating let them know. As a favor to the event, our staff are also looking for donation items and services for the Silent Auction portion of the event, too. If you know of a person, business, artist, or restaurant that might want to contribute, we’d love to speak with you. [All donated items, staff time, products or services costs are 100% tax deductible and vouchers will be issued through the USO Metro.]

Read on for more information about the history on the event, excerpted from concorsoforuso.com:

“The Concorso: Celebrating the Art of the Automobile” is proud to announce our fourth annual event and two days of fund raising, parties, music, and food to benefit the USO, supporting our men and women in uniform. The theme this year is Celebrating the Art of the Automobile and will explore the artistic and sculptural forms of the transportation industry…

Jonathan Kendall started [helping organize car show events] in October of 2005 as a way to raise money to help our community in the Baltimore-Washington area. The first event was attended by about (100) people, (12) cars and a beautiful automotive art display together in Annapolis. 2006 Followed a move to the famous City Dock in Annapolis, (100) people, (25) cars along with Jonathan’s beautiful photographic style of art. In 2007 the event took a huge leap to Little Italy in Baltimore where there were (75) cars and motorcycles, (250) ticket holders, (3000) spectators. This year Jonathan [and partner Dave Born] have chosen to work with the USO as the beneficiary.

Saturday, September 6th starts with a fun “Rally” driving event through the Baltimore County, Maryland countryside… [from Maserati of Baltimore].

Saturday continues with the evening event at the Signature Flight Support “Wings and Wheels” Reception to be held at their modern BWI general aviation facility. Ticket holders will enjoy wonderful assortment of international cuisines, wine and drinks. There will be a silent and live auction to benefit the charities. And the event will feature live entertainment as well as a display of automotive and aircraft art.

Sunday’s event is The Concorso and will be in downtown Baltimore at the Cordish Company’s exciting Power Plant Live located at Market Place and Water Street. Over (100) exotic cars will be on display for the general public to view. There will be a private lounge, Angel’s Rock Bar, where ticket holders will find food and drinks for the afternoon. This will be our formal car judging segment and also include live entertainment, auctions and art displays.
