Come celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the Introduction of the Porsche 914 September 12-15, 2019 in Banner Elk, NC.

REGISTRATION CLOSED

What better way to celebrate than with over 100 fellow 914 enthusiasts for a weekend of driving, showing and socializing! So finish up that project, dust off the garage queen, trailer that race car or hop in your daily driver and head to the mountains of Western North Carolina for a weekend you will not soon forget.

The fun begins Thursday afternoon with event check-in. Watch and be amazed as fellow teeners arrive and the parking area fills up with a kaleidoscope of colors.

Friday begins early with the “main event” - a drive on the area's fantastic mountain roads. With planned rest and lunch stops along the way, the daylong drive is a 914 lover's utopia.

After the drive, attendees have Friday evening free to do as they wish. Many will gather to eat dinner and then later hang out and socialize. Informal swap meets generally pop up about this time so bring parts or cash.

Saturday begins with a People's Choice Car Show followed by a “free” afternoon. During the afternoon, the event promoters will be busy preparing for the evening's Awards Banquet where upwards of $10k worth of “goodies” are given out thanks to our generous sponsors.

Sunday begins with the sound of 914s rambling out of the parking lot as the event ends and attendees head home.

Throughout the weekend there will be scheduled “clinics” demonstrating how to perform a variety of maintenance and upgrade projects. Also, a 914 Tech Quiz is generally given towards the end of the Car Show.

My wife received the update from the FB page and hasn’t stopped talking about it. We had a great time last year!!

for such an event as the 50th we should be able to round up 200 914s to attend. Many of us will not be around for the 75th. Every east coast 914 guy should make an effort to attend this historic event.

Looking forward to another great event and this time celebrating the 50th anniversary of the 914!

No need to limit it to east coast teeners. We have quite a few folks who travel from west of the Mississippi to attend. beerchug.gif

3.) The 916 for 150 smilie_pokal.gif
4.) All three for 200 cars attending first.gif

200 914s is the goal for the 50th
Banner Elk is a great place, and the road course is the best.

Though I think it would be awesome to see 200 914s in one spot, a more realistic goal for this event is 100+ 914s bye1.gif

You and Clay were great tour guides last year. I might take a more northern route but if I decide to go thru Texas I’ll plan to hook up with you guys. The exploding trans was not bad as I was in front of you, it might have been a mess behind you when the fluid dumped on your exhaust. Looking forward to seeing you guys again

It looks like our paths will cross in Little Rock AR on the way to Banner Elk? Whoever goes through there last can pick up the pieces of whoever is running in front of them. happy11.gif
