The Annual Celicatech Dragon Run will occur on April 20th and April 21st of 2012

Yup, it is the special time of year again folks. When we all get restless and thinking toward what is our favorite event. This is an event that has been going on for several years now and it is always the highlight of my year.

For the uninitiated, The Dragon (http://www.tailofthedragon.com/) is a stretch of road that lies between Tennessee and North Carolina, it is known by many names, but it is officially known as US Highway 129. It is a marvelous stretch of road known to automotive enthusiasts the entire world over.

Now, some of you might be asking, 'Why is it called the Dragon Run?' Well, let me explain.

We are car fanatics. And the reason we love cars, is that we love to drive them. So in a departure from typical meets, we plan this around driving. Driving through the Great Smokey Mountains and enjoying some beautiful sights and comradeship.

There will be plenty of time for looking at cars, enjoying the companionship and eating, however, the meat and potatoes of this event is driving.

We always expect a large turnout, and this year will be no exception. Barring any landslides, floods and other unforeseen acts of nature, we will have a good run.

One thing I would like to stress is making sure that your car is up to snuff. This is not a Sunday drive through the country. Please, make sure your tires are good, cooling systems are in shape and you have all the gears in your transmission. I will not be performing a tech inspection, so please use some common sense.




Lodging is being handled differently this year. For the last several years we have stayed in Knoxville, this year however, we will be staying in Fontana, just a stone's throw away from the Dragon.

We are getting a room rate discount, please inform them when you place your reservation that you are with the Celicatech group.

The prices are as follows:


Lodge Room with two queen beds $109.00
1 Bedroom Willow Cabin $109.00
2BR/1BA Laurel Cabin $129.00
3BR/ 2 bath Azalea Cabin $215.00


There are campsites available as well.

Contact (https://www.fontanareservations.com/)

Please book early as there are other groups slated to be there the same weekend as us.






Please join in the discussion and we will see who all is coming, where you are staying, and what you would like to see happen this year. Every year is different, and every year is a blast.


2-Way Radios are recommended, this is how we all like to keep in touch with one another and make sure we all know where we are going.


I hope to see you attend.


If you need anymore information, feel free to contact myself or post in this thread.

And please, spread the word to other enthusiasts.

I got the group rate. I talked to Mark and he had already set the group rate to $109 a night for the cabin. He only had 2 left after I booked so if you want one you better call him.

I was looking at the Fontana map and everyone who booked a willow cabin will be neighbors. The Laurels are one street over and the Azaleas are kind of scattered.

I think it would be cool to meet up at Murg's campsite Friday evening and cut loose.

We have two groups typically, their is a site seeing group (slow), and a driving group that is usually the more modified cars and skilled drivers. If you question what group you should be in, you should probably go with the slow group.

It is a run your own run. You can either go fast, or slow. We have drivers of all different skill sets. The Dragon and the Skyway are more of a driver thing that a car thing.

There are rumors out there of an ST that will hang with the Alltracs.

I have to absolutely beat the shit out of that little car to keep up with bugs. Sad part is every time he's always like "I didn't even hit lift/wastegate" depending on the car.

Im not gonna be able to finish the celica and have money for the trip. The lancer needs motor mounts and I really don't feel like doing them, so I probably can't bring it either.
That leaves the bike, it needs tires for a dragon trip, which is much less work. However I don't wanna be havin to wait on you guys at the end after each run(I cant control myself), so someone needs to let me ride with them.

So are we having a cookout friday and saturday or meeting somewhere? I know it has been talked about some but never saw a final decision. This way we can possibly get a list going of who is bringing what.

alltracNyx
03-18-2012, 08:03 PM
Well, a good portion of us are going to be meeting up and hanging out in ATL the week before, and driving up from there. We'll probably be meeting at Fontana, or some place to eat around Fontana Friday night. I think if we have a cookout, it will probably be Saturday night.

I'm not sure what we'll be bringing for a cookout, but I definitely don't want a full cooler banging around the back of the car on the GA train up to Fontana. That would be no fun. ^_^

There is a grocery store in robbinsville that you can get everything you need. We made a trip there during the day on saturday and bought all the stuff to cook that night. IMO it wasnt cheaper than eating out but I do like grilled burgers and dogs.

Man fuck IA this ain't no hellaflush pansy ass parking lot show. This is a driving meet followed by lots of alcohol and inappropriate behavior. Bring your ass to the dragon I guarantee you'll have more fun.

But to answer your question we have quit a few cars. 30 50? The first year I went was 4 years ago and there was like 70 cars.
The last few years they haven't officially invited people from other forums that
I know of so the meets were relatively small. It's better that way.

03-31-2012, 12:35 AM
That's why I have the star specs, sticky enough for me, but will last, and since I don't have two sets of rims, that's important to me. Granted... I am willing to settle for a 10K tire, just means I get fresh tires before the dragon every year. However, my star specs have maybe seen 6k this year...

Hipster Lawrence
03-31-2012, 03:36 AM
Star specs should last you more than 10k.aune 20 if you're diligent about rotating them. They are plenty sticky for me too. If I ran slicks or even r comps of probably break something.

Yeah, they still have plenty of tread of them, so I expect to get at least two years out of them.


Also, V3, they are on my "daily" driver, that mostly runs me the 3 miles round trip to/from work, and to the airport (25mi each way) sometimes, then sometimes to The Captain's place to hang out or work on cars (again, 25ish mi each way)

Lmao have you driven on them yet? You are going to shit your pants when you feel how much better they are than those BFGs.

Marshall of it were me id try and find a second set of wheels and run something like a michilen pillow sport or even a mxv4 for a daily tire. Just for ride quality. But I care about stuff like that.

My problem is that I can't find an inexpensive rim that I like in a 16, every time I see 7th gen GTS wheels, they're either way far away or overpriced.

Define "way far away" and "overpriced" what is reasonable for both?

Define "way far away" and "overpriced" what is reasonable for both?

way far away = more than hour away

overprice = more than 250, because let's face it, the person selling them obviously didn't want them, and they're used. Hell, I paid $300 for my current rims which are 17x7+40 and look damn near identical (gun metal instead of silver) and they were NEW!

I'm north of you... and yes, I did once do five miles in an hour. Pissed me off... took a simple 5 mile surface road drive into work, and it took an hour some how... even using all possible short cuts.

But I consider an hour about 60 miles of interstate since I live right off the interstate

By the by, for those staying in a cabin at Fontana Village and want to bring a pet along, there is a $150 nonrefundable fee (for 1 pet, I don't know about multiples). Just call them up and let them know. If you change your mind and leave Fido at home, let them know at check-in.

I know it's last-minute but who all from the PA/OH area are headed down on Friday and when? Any plans to link up somewhere and cut some highway monotony?

I'm leaving columbus around 2-3pm, always down to convoy.
