What our drivers say


“Not only does Andy lay out the routes he personally drives the new routes before releasing them to participants. I don’t think you will find a more passionate person about driving in the Smokies or track events.

This is my sixth year participating in driving with groups in the Smokies. Andy has laid out the routes for every event I’ve had the pleasure to experience. I’ve also been fortunate to be in Andy’s group on every trip. Big thumbs up to Andy!”

“Colby and I had a blast and we talked (bragged) about it for days to friends and family. The drive and experience was amazing and you did a fantastic job hosting the event and everyone made us feel very welcome into the group.

Getting the opportunity to exercise the RS5 on a guided road trip was the perfect opportunity for us to get to know the car. I’ve never owned a beast quite like it and haven’t felt comfortable really testing it on our local roads. I may sprint from here-to-there on occasion, but the other drivers out here make me nervous. You can expect us to join again. We’re looking forward to hopefully seeing some of the same guys and meeting new people on the next trip.”

“Your trips have it all; great camaraderie, wonderful accommodations, and of course the daily drives. Your intimate knowledge of the area shows in the many beautiful and exciting routes you have selected. It was so much fun following you on these thrilling mountain roads.”

“I think a wide variety of people would enjoy this. Not only do you get a great driving experience, you’ve got great scenery, we stay in great places, we got great camaraderie. It’s for almost everybody in all walks of life, anybody who enjoys cars, anybody who wants to drive. Anybody who wants to improve their skills. And I think driving on the roads is different than driving on a circuit. To me you appeal to almost anybody who enjoys cars, who enjoys driving, and likes being out in the mountains there.”

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I come alone, or bring a partner?

Absolutely!  Typically, our events are made up of 1/4 couples and 3/4 singles. And by couples we mean spouse, partner, friend or child (over 16 years of age please).

What would I be paying for?

It’s a good question! The following is included in your registration fee:

  • A high-performance driving specialist at the helm.
  • Professional, performance driving tips.
  • Extensively researched route planning: we know The Smoky Mountains like the back of our hands! And, all our routes are pre-planned to the mile – from surveying the road quality to assessing congestion and scoping scenery for photographic opportunities.
  • Professional photography.
  • Discounted accommodations (to be paid directly to the lodge)
  • Meals: 3 breakfast, 2 lunches and 3 dinners (including Thursday welcome dinner). All drinks.
  • Enthusiasm, passion and knowledge: spearheaded by self-driving specialist, Andy has participated in high-performance driving for over a decade and covered nearly 20,000 miles of driving in The Great Smoky Mountains, alone.
  • Branded shirt.
  • Camaraderie: Our events are as much about a specialized driving experience as they are the people. And, the friendships developed are often lasting so share your passion with like-minded sports car enthusiasts.
  • One on one, in-car coaching is available at an additional cost at checkout. Spaces are limited, on a first come first served basis.
What does typical rally itinerary look like?

Check in at the host lodge is on Thursday’s at 4:00pm and check out is on Sunday at 10:00am. There are optional drives on Thursday before check-in and again on Sunday after check out. Inquire before your scheduled rally for details.

Our drives are on Fridays and Saturdays. We plan to be on the road no later than 9:30am each day; the sooner the better. We will arrive back to the host lodge by 5:30pm. We have planned fuel stops, lunch and photo opportunities. So you’re looking at about five to six hours actual driving time. Any more than that, we’d be on our knees and thirsty for a cold one! There are included happy hours and group dinners on Thursday, Friday and Saturday.

Before our first drive, Andy briefly shares car control techniques and rules of the road. All our drives are lead/follow with Andy in the lead. Walkie talkies are provided to each car.

We give you the option for in-car coaching, from seasoned instructors, on either Thursday afternoon or Sunday morning (based on availability and at an additional cost). This option is presented at checkout.
