GLCC and the Viper Club will be co-hosting this excursion. Many for details to come but if you are considering attending this fun event it is wise to make hotel/B&B reservations now as accomodations fill up quickly (plus winter rates are available now).
  • We will caravan down on Monday September 24th and caravan back Wednesday afternoon September 26th.  Around 5pm on Monday all classic cars are invited to a car show and to drive the original road course. This is quite a thrill!  Also on Tuesday evening the registered race participants drive the original course with the only rule being no passing. This was VERY cool to witness.
  • We will have our own schedule of activities including site seeing, organized dinners, etc.  You can spend 1 or all days.  Also you can drive civilian if you’d prefer.
  • The Hotel is Bayshore Resort.  The owner provided private parking for us and access to water/hose to wash cars.  To view the hotel and make reservations click here.
  • And Bob White has scouted each of the B&Bs.  Last year a few people staying at B&Bs.  Here’s the summary:

 Much more to come but want to get this on your radar and to provide information about lodging.
