Anyone Up for a Trip to Deal's Gap?

I got to talking with some friends here in my office and the subject of Deal's Gap came up.

For those not familiar, Deal's Gap is located on the NC/TN border. Officially, is known as Route 129. Unofficially, it is known as "The Dragon". It is an 11 mile stretch of road with 318 turns.

Historically, it is a mecca for motorcycle riders. However, recently car clubs have been migrating there as well. One friend, a mini driver , and his club went up and he said that it was a blast.

There is an open track event at VIR in June and I was thinking about taking a trip down there afterwards.

Has anyone ever been?
Is there any interest in maybe getting a group together for a foci rally?

I've never been and I think it would be great to have a mob of foci tearing through the twisties. Just be careful, there are bears in the woods (the furry kind, not police) and beware of the cliffs.

For more information on Deal's Gap, visit the following web sites:

decent lead time and a respectable turnout and i would consider a long roadtrip to meet some fellow enthusiast. Honestly though i would probably be tempted to bring my firebird and not the focus. Betteryet how bout everyone comes down to Sebring in florida, heh.
