The Hangar Hotel will be Boxster-central this year. We also
have group rates at The Fredericksburg Inn. See our Lodging page for more
information about these, and other lodging options including the many local B&B and Guesthouse
The following is the tentative schedule of events for 2018. We will post updates to this
page as the information is available.
Schedule of Events
Friday, September 7
1:00 pm - ???
Friday Gimmick Rally Early Drive - Follow a set of cryptic clues to complete a course closest to the tourmiesters mileage. Only sign up if 1) You really want to drive this, and 2) you are actually going to arrive on Friday to be able to complete this. If you get lost, we will send out scouts after we close the bar at registration to look for you. You can begin picking up course clue sheets at the registration desk on Friday, at 1:00 pm. We must have at least 6 cars register in order to have this event. For those who have done one of these you know how much fun they are. For those that haven't, you are missing a truly enjoyable event.
1:00 pm - 6:00 pm
Pre-Drive the Saturday Main Route - On Friday afternoon we are offering the ability to Pre-Drive any Saturday driving course - however this drive will not have an official drive leader. Rather, participants will be provided the route map and directions. The "regular route" is appx a 5 hour tour, not including stops (~220 miles, meals on your own), and the Scenic drive is appx 100 miles. Designed for those who want additional seat time, want to do the regular route twice, or those who want to do the scenic tour on Saturday (or just chill out in Fredericksburg)
Further details will be forwarded to those who select this event. Maps can be picked up at the Hangar Hotel at 1:00, and you are free to leave from there once all waivers are signed.
1:00 pm - 6:00 pm
Winery Tour - $30/pp - We will contract a tour bus to take attendees to several wineries. The cost here is just for the tour bus. There may (probably will be) extra fees at the wineries for tastings and those are to be paid to the winery directly. Those who have joined in the past have had a great time and really enjoy this event. The tour buses will leave the Hangar Hotel promptly at 1:00 pm on Friday Sept 7, and will arrive back at around 6:00 pm.
6:00 p.m. - 9:00 p.m.
Registration at the Officers' Club in the Hangar Hotel. You DO NOT have to be there at exactly 6:00 pm. Come in, relax and when the line slows down pop in to register. Refreshments will be available at the
club bar, and the workers behind the tables get thirsty (wink, wink). Dinner is on your own at any of the wonderful restaurants in Fredericksburg.

This drive is suggested for those drivers who have lots of seat time in their Porsches, and truly enjoy carving the twisties.
