Driving Down to Carrabelle March 24 - Who is up for a Drive?

4 August 2000
Atlanta, Georgia USA

I am re-posting this into the Atlanta sub forum because after I returned last year, everyone commented on how they wish they knew about it.

Well here it is. March 24. Come on down to a great little town called Carrabelle Florida about 40 miles south of Tallahassee.

WannaGOFAST.com is proud to present our first event of 2012 at the Carrabelle-Thompson airport in Carrabelle, FL. The Carrabelle Speed Festival is well.....all about SPEED! Test your vehicle and driving skills on an open runway. We will be doing standing HALF MILE races all day long!! The best part is that we are allowing head to head competition instead of solo runs like other airstrip events. The theme will be classic grudge match style racing from a roll or a dig! Hit speeds you only dreamed about on a ¼ mile track in a fun and safe environment!

Come join us for what is sure to be an exciting day of speed and entertainment! We will have a live DJ spinning tracks all day long and food provided from the Pit Stop Grill!

Hey Alex,
Just checking the miles for me. I run to Jennings for my bike races towing a trailor is about 5 hours. We would be talking another 2hours to the strip from there.. I think I'm not gonna make it..
I will be working on my car this weekend to prepare for this.

Anyone wanting to come hang out and watch me monkey around with the NSX is more than welcome (if they want to make the drive, that is :biggrin:).
I'm looking forward to this weekend! :biggrin::biggrin::biggrin:

Two more days... I didn't get the work done that I wanted to, but I will be prepping the car tomorrow. :cool:
Not many things I get jealous about but this is one! I LOVE speed! :biggrin:

Have fun and take lots of pictures
So since the event got postponed... :cool:

Who's up for a mountain drive and then a cookout at Liz's cabin in Blue Ridge tomorrow? :biggrin:
we should have a good window of no rain and clear skies tomorrow morning for the drive,
forecast shows pm thunderstorms, which should be fine while we're cooking out

any idea of where we're going to drive??

and a possible good start time for everyone?
I was thinking go from Blue Ridge to Dahlonga up to Blood Mtn back over to BR

but y'all coming up from ATL might find a fun way to get up here!

Im good for 10am or after.....it will take you about 90 minutes from downtown ATL
I just saw the front of Alex's awesome ride for the first time since the rainy day in North Carolina :eek:


They are bringing it to the mountains of Georgia!

Who's coming to support the NSX Top Speed King of Georgia?

I lived full time in Clayton and have driven on Heavens Landing's airstrip in everything from from my NSX to a forklift :biggrin: It's in a great location for a early drive before or a late drive after. If you have any questions about staying up there shoot me a message or call me.
