    I just received notice that the 2009 site will be announced Monday on the Website, I think that means the front page.

    Stay tuned.

    2009 Rally is in....

    going to focus primarily on the GS crowd. It's being held 13km outside Kabul, Afghanistan. This is the only site available with a beer tent permit area.

    Actually, I think it would be nearly impossible to get a beer permit in Afghanistan unless we have the rally at a US military base.

    I'm betting on a Georgia/Alabama/Tennessee area. For some reason I'm feeling strongly about Georgia, but I've been wrong before...

    BMW Announces Plant Expansion

    Spartanburg, S.C. (3/10/2008) ÔÇö BMW today announced it will invest an additional $750 million in its Upstate South Carolina factory to add 1.5 million square feet and 500 new jobs on site to produce three models and to increase production capacity to 240,000 units by 2012.

    The investment is the largest ever announced for the Spartanburg County factory, increasing investments of the BMW Group in its South Carolina operations to $4.2 billion.

    The three-year construction project includes a new 1.2 million square foot Assembly facility north of the existing factory to accommodate the next generation BMW X3 Sports Activity Vehicle. In addition, the Paint Shop will expand by about 80 percent or 300,000 square feet. The existing Body Shops will be renovated.

    The additional investment will prepare the factory to increase production from 160,000 units to 240,000 units. The expansion of the Spartanburg plant also means a bigger purchase and export volume in and from the NAFTA region, which will contribute considerably to the companyÔÇÖs natural hedging position.

    After the expansion, the Spartanburg plant will manufacture the BMW X3, X5 Sports Activity Vehicle and X6 Sports Activity Coupe and their respective variants for world markets. ÔÇ£Centralizing our know-how for BMW X models in Spartanburg will enable us to work more efficiently, thus supporting our long-range corporate strategy. In addition, it was a logical step for the BMW Group as a global player to increase production capacity in its largest market,ÔÇØ said BMW Board Member Frank-Peter Arndt.

    A highlight will be the production of a diesel X5 Sports Activity Vehicle for the United States market starting later this year.
    My bet is near Spartanburg.
