This is a show to celebrate the life of a very avid motorsports and BMW enthusiast in the Rochester that tragically passed away in the summer of 2013. 

We are pleased to announce our new partnership with Finger Lakes Region SCCA, now that our efforts are combined we can bring you the biggest, most notable show to date.

Gates open at noon at The Little Speed Shop

There will be food
There will be prizes
There will be trophies

Best part? We are only asking for a voluntary donation to the Joel Ajavon Memorial Scholarship Fund. All proceeds from the show go to this charity scholarship fund.
