The Smokies group was started “by accident” by a few Porsche GT3 owners who simply wanted to go for a mountain drive. The drive got bigger and bigger, turned into a weekend and we are now in our sixth year. The group has grown to over 440 GT owners from all over the US and some from Canada. There will be over 125 Porsche GT’s at this year’s event in Hiawassee, coming from as far as Seattle.
Our group is informal, a family, and brings together like-minded individuals, many of whom have become lifelong friends through the events. As part of the 2019 event, we will do a track day at Road Atlanta, Mountain Drives in GA / TN / NC and will rent Heaven’s landing airstrip where we take CF patients and underprivileged kids for the ride of their life down an open runway in a Porsche GT!
Over the past few years, our group has raised over $500,000 for charity and we expect to double that amount to a total of close to $1,000,000 in 2019.
