On Saturday September 16th, we will display our cars on the grounds of the beautiful and prestigious Atlanta Athletic Club. Registration will open at 8:00 a.m. and cars must be in place by 9:00 a.m. Judging will begin at 10 a.m. and the show will conclude at 2:30 p.m.

Lunch for passengers (assistant drivers) is not included in the registration fee but can be purchased for an additional $10.00. There is no entry fee for spectators or guests, but since this is a secured private facility all spectators and their guests must register either via Motorsports or by using the registration form on the Peach Page in this newsletter to gain access to the club grounds and show.
