Huge mountain cruise July 10th!!!



High Tach Motorsports (www.hightach.com) is celebrating its 5th year as an organization, and 4th annual mountain cruise. At first it was a call upon racing and car enthusiasts, but now its grown into an annual meeting of corner carving enthusiasts to look at cars, talk about cars, and of course drive their cars though the beautiful and demanding Smokey Mountains for a very rewarding day off.

Highlighting this year's cruise is aerial footage & photography from a helicopter for the vast majority of the caravan through the Blue Ridge Parkway. Adding to the footage will be stratigically placed camera mounts (pictured below) on participating cars and also other volunteers placed further down the road for fly-bys. During the event we will scope around to look at all the cars, talk to the drivers and so-forth. The finished full-length video will be $15, but of course a 4-5min internet video will be hosted on hightach.com for all to see :)


(ok so when is this happening)
When:
July 10th, meet @ 9am, depart at 10:20am sharp!
Where:

Western North Carolina
Cherokee Fun Park parking lot at entrance of Cherokee Indian Reservation
enter this address for personalized directions:
1693 Tsali Manor Dr.
Cherokee, NC
The parking lot is HUGE, you'd have to suffer from severe tunnel vision to not see

As stated we will depart from the meeting spot @ 10:20am, and head north 1m to the Blue Ridge Parkway for the official cruise. The city will escort us out so we will be able to remain in order. From there you will be surrounded by 100's of sportscars while enjoying the beautiful Blue Ridge Parkway, and of course check out the helicopter that will take your mugshot. :cool:

After ~2hrs of crusing the parkway, we will end the official cruise at a picnic area shortly after the parkway intersects Hwy 276 that hosts 100+ grills which you can pull your car up to and grill some hotdogs and hamburgers. We love to drink as much as you do, but please don't bring any alcoholic beverages to the cruise.

What we like to call the "unofficial" cruise is after that. People will then pick and choose their "wingmen" and maps will be givin out to participants that notes key roads in the area. Roads of interests from the picnic area are 151, 276, and 215. Play at your own risk (o and make sure your brakes are bled :rolleyes: ).

Well that's it!! Hope you can make it, this year is sure to be a trip to rememeber

I'm in..........I'm right in this area (hour East in Asheville NC) so if anybody needs a place to crash on Friday night they are more than welcome. Also planning on going to Bristol Tenn on Sunday for Nopi Race wars if anybody is planning on hanging around. 276, 215 etc are GREAT roads to drive but if you are coming don't forget the Dragon's Tail in Deal's Gap which is very close to where this is all taking place (US129 with 318 curves in 11 miles). Anyway, I was going to Bristol for both days but I think I'll go up for Saturday night to Bristol now and come to this on Saturday morning.
