Big Thaw car show at UMass Lowell, Sunday March 28

Post  Admin on Thu Mar 11, 2010 9:32 pm


I am a member of the Formula SAE race car team at the University of Massachusetts Lowell. We are hosting a car show on campus as a fundraiser for the team's trip to compete in Michigan. I am the main event organizer, and I would really like to see a large Miata section at the show.

The Big Thaw Car Show at UMass Lowell is going to be held on Sunday March 28th, from 10am to 4pm (rain date Sunday, April 11th). We have up to 270 spaces available for show cars, and there will be music and food as well. The cars will be parked in every other space, allowing for plenty of room to relax, set up chairs, etc. It is being held on the corner of Pawtucket Street and Broadway Street, in the very large Riverview parking lot on UMass Lowell's South Campus. There is a zero-tolerance drug and alcohol free event, and there will be a UMass Lowell Police presence. The entry fee is $5 if you preregister, and $7 at the event; spectators are free!

As this is the first year for the car show, we are expecting a diverse group of 150-175 cars to attend the show; however, I think we can see over 200. The vehicle makes that are represented so far include modified and stock vehicles from BMW, Maserati, Volvo, Ford, GMC, Chevrolet, Pontiac, Audi, Jeep, Dodge, Oldsmobile, Aston Martin, Honda, Acura, Toyota, Lexus, Subaru, and Mazda; there will also be a local new-car dealer presence. Lime Rock Park will most likely have a booth at the event as well.
Miatas are a huge part of the weekend racing community, and I would love to see a bunch at the show. Is there a group of Miata owners in the Massachusetts/New Hampshire area that could make it to the event from your club?

Thanks, and please feel free to email me any questions that you have,
