    that was fun, great job organizing this! My friend had his Ferrari signed, and I was content parking my LP behind his Aventador and hat signed.

      That's a shame. Better your Lotus than my Ferrari. Would be more fitting. Just an issue of proximity, I guess. Karl got them to let him park his Lambo behind the Aventador, and I just happened to show up at that moment and slid in next to him. We literally couldn't have been any closer, and still nearly missed my chance.

      We are very sorry to those of you who were unable to get the autograph you came for. We have suggested to Mario's team that they do a separate car signing line for the future. This is the first event we have done of this kind and one of the largest events for Mario. We tried to accommodate everyone in attendance & are truly sorry we let you down. There's a good chance that we might do this event again next year when our One Loudoun location opens, and if so, we will make sure that your cars get signed then.

    I barely got the car signed. I felt bad asking. He was saying his farewells and I had to kinda get his attention. Helped that my car was about three steps from his and I had the sharpie handy, thanks to Karl.

      Nick- We're really sorry about this. Will you please email me at [masked] so we can discuss. I know we told you would be able to get your car signed and are not sure why you weren't able to. Can you provide me with some details? We never want to disappoint you!

    For a car authograph, what is the recommended marker? Sharpie or a Paintpen?

    April 2

    • Nick R.

      Sharpie. Never paint pen it runs if u ever get it wet

  • Nick R.

    He'll actually sign cars?

    I believe this to be worth of closing the shop down for a couple hours and bringing the guys with.

    Can we bring a Porsche item for him to sign?

    • Virginia Tire & A.

      Absolutely, Craig! You can even have him sign the car itself if you'd like!

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
