Sunday, March 3rd, 2024  – Seventh Annual “Delta Drive” to the Grand Island Mansion (“GIM”). 

We have made a reservation for a limited group of 30 people. Please make your reservation through MotorsportReg.  There is no fee to registration, but you'll be paying after the meal. Please wear your MBZ club name tags to help the staff and us recognize you are a MBZ’r!

If you'd like to have a leisurely drive with a caravan of Mercedes-Benz to Grand Islnd Mansion, We’ll meet up at Peet’s Coffee in the “Clayton Valley Shopping Center” at the intersection of Clayton Road and Ignacio Valley Roads in Concord from 9:45 to 10:30 AM for coffee and snacks. Peet’s is located behind the Bank of America on the corner at 5458 Ygnacio Valley Road, Concord.  Sign ins, NOTE: please print out these driving instructions, sign ins are to be completed by 10:30 AM ; ladies and gentlemen… “start your engines” …  for a prompt departure at 10:30 AM and then a right turn east onto Clayton Valley Road.   That would be “RIGHT” Jack!

We then get on Marsh Creek Road passing by the historic city of Clayton and then into the wilds of the northeast side of Mt. Diablo.  Expect great views and possibly lush green grass covered hills as we wind down the road towards the Delta.  Note, there are warning signs posted regarding the possibility of “ICEY” road conditions. 

There is a lot of early California packed into this area, as John Marsh was the first “Anglo” landowner in “Alta California” (2).  We are driving thru history!   About 11 miles down Marsh Creek Road, we’ll make a left turn on to Deer Valley Road headed towards Antioch and a right turn onto Hwy 4 (9 miles) then onto the gateway to “The Delta” Hwy 160, staying to the right.  Next is “The High Bridge”, which is a “toll bridge”. 

Just past Isleton, we follow Hwy 160 over the old bridge and a right turn following Hwy 160.  Next is a left turn on to Hwy 220 just past the Ryde Hotel in Walnut Grove. This is where the driving gets little more interesting as we drive across Grand Island with farm vistas!  Take a right turn on to “Grand Island Road” heading North East. (Note, “The Grand Island Road” is a “loop” around the perimeter of the Island, cannot get lost!)
