Enjoy meeting other members and experience some incredible driving in groups around the Smokey Mountains.
This get-together (GTG) is for drivers of all skill levels and driving interests.
Route leaders will be taking individual groups on daily routes that vary from a relaxing drive in the mountains, to those that might make some passengers (and even DRIVERS) hold on tight.

Mine is as exciting as my first one.

On THAT note - I'd promised that I'd not push this car like I did the Graphite. BUT, leading Thorn and his son thru the Dragon on Sunday Morning sure blew that promise.......
