Default Smokies 2018 is coming!

All,
We are looking for sponsors for Smokies GT - if you are interested in sponsoring the event, please contact us at [email protected]. Lots of unique sponsorship opportunities exist.

Additionally, if you are interested in attending - Please register your interest at www.gt3revs.com. That will put you on the list to get registration updates and access to the smokies web forum and mobile app. We expect registration to go live in the next 4-5 days.

We are in the middle of finalizing the agenda for Smokies 2018. The event will once again be a step up from the previous event. Here is a rough agenda - the full detailed agenda is coming soon:
4/26 - Optional "arrive and drive" track day at AMP
4/26 - Welcome Reception and dinner at the Porsche Experience Center (we expect a very special guest that night) - Stay that evening at the Solis Porsche Hotel
4/27 - Drive to Track from PEC, Track day at AMP then Mountain Drives to Resort (Wolf Pen Gap!)
4/27 - First night party at event resort - Our favorite Bluegrass band plays in the lobby
4/28 - Mountain Drives - Tail of the Dragon, Moonshiner 28, Cherahola Skyway, etc.
4/28 - Afternoon Airstrip Event - Additionally, participants will have the opportunity to take Cystic Fibrosis Patients down the airstrip.
4/28 - Home Safe Happy Hour
4/28 - Live / Silent Auction to support the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation
4/29 - Breakfast then Mtn. Drives - Some participants depart some stay one more night.

We expect up to 80 GT cars this year and it will be an epic event for sure! Plus my GelbGrun manual GT3 will be fresh off the boat!

Hope to see you there... And a vid from last year...

Looking forward to it. Thanks again to Sean and Mayur for all that they do. If you haven't done this you need to at least once. It is a blast with great driving roads, track time, and good companionship all for a good cause.

If you are on the fence just DO IT. You can thank me later. Bring your spouse. This will be my 7th Smokies event and my wife has come to all of them and if possible she enjoys them more than I do.

We come from Wisconsin and people have come from California and Washington state so if you are far away you have no excuse

Hope to see you there fellow Rennlisters!!
