We are staying in the infield. Is the convoy passing the track? I would love to join in. Thank you
For those who are staying at the track or north of the hotel, we'll meet up around 10:00 at the intersection of GA400 and Rt 53 (the road the track is on). Address is 6625 Hwy 53 East, Dawsonville, GA 30534. There is a Shell station at the intersection. This is the same parking lot as last year.

Our bags are packed and go to FedEx for shipping to The Avalon tomorrow. My wife is as fired up about driving to Atlanta Wednesday as I am...even when I told her she had to pack her makeup for shipping.

Thanks for arranging. Count me and my dad in for 2. Rented a house (with garage for the GT) south of the track. We will join at the 10AM stop.

All,
A reminder to everyone to fill up on gas BEFORE the drive. We had a lot of confusion last year.

Posting this here too...


For anyone looking for something to do today thats maybe a half day event, I have a couple of suggestions.

For the old car nut, I highly recommend Old Car City. I went a couple months ago and I would estimate 95% of the vehicles are 1960-1975 American cars. Be prepared to walk...a lot. Very friendly GT parking lot and a nice drive out there. Stay away from rush hour. "Come enjoy the Old South environment, folk art, ghosts of beautiful classic cars, and much more! With over 34 acres and over 4000 American-made cars from the early 20th Century, these cars, trucks, vans, and even a couple school buses are placed in such a way as to be ideally suited for photos."

For the adrenaline junky, the kart track at Atlanta Motorsports Park is one of the best in the world and has some awesome elevation changes. This is not your normal K1 Speed track. It is outdoors and very exciting and challenging. They have public karting starting at 1PM each day. You can drive up GA 400 (the highway next to the hotel), but some of the back roads drive through some great GA countryside.

All,
See below for the routes tomorrow.

Outbound from hotel to Helen

I believe you can follow this on your mobile device. The trick is to replace the starting point in Google maps with your current location.

I will also have a limited number of hard copies.

9:30 leave Hotel at Avalon
10:00 Rendezvous with anyone camping at Road Atlanta (at 6625 GA-53, Dawsonville, GA 30534)
12:00 Lunch in Helen GA
2:30 Tour of Robertson Racing shop courtesy of H Smith
4:00 Back at hotel
