Event description

Description

This first-of-its-kind event will benefit MPG Member Miles Branman who was grievously injured by a drunk driver.

For the first time, MPG’s annual driving event will include a significant charity component. All proceeds from the event, now subtitled “Miles 4 Miles,” will go to auto journalist and MPG member Miles Branman, who was seriously injured in an accident caused by a drunk driver. Since the accident, Branman’s injuries have prevented him from working at his craft while resulting in extensive medical expenses far beyond his insurance coverage.

The day-long driving event will be held on Tuesday, September 17, at Calamigos Ranch in Malibu. It will include the opportunity to drive and evaluate new 2019 and 2020 model-year vehicles on the beautiful and challenging roads surrounding the ranch.

The participation fee is $50, and MPG members can reserve their spot with an early-bird discount prior to the event. Each test and evaluation mile driven by an MPG member participant will increase the proceeds going to Branman, thanks to the per-mile contributions of participating vehicle manufacturers. Associated activities during the event will provide additional contributions to our injured colleague.

In addition to the “Miles 4 Miles” driving portion of the event, we’re planning a silent auction featuring donated automotive-related swag, books, and memorabilia. A special “Supercar Drive” will enable a select few who donate to the cause to drive and evaluate a very special high-end vehicle for a specific period of time during the course of the Drive Day event. An event T-shirt will also be on sale, with all proceeds going to the Branmans. Additional details will be announced at a later date.

The event will include a sponsored breakfast and sponsored lunch for all MPG member participants. Use of the Calamigos Ranch facility is generously provided by Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, while Autotrader/Kelley Blue Book will sponsor the breakfast and Autoweb (one of Miles’ freelance outlets) is contributing to the day’s lunch.

This event is open to all current MPG members, however only Journalist and Analyst members may drive. All other active members, photographers and guests may ride along and join us for lunch.
