Gatty 4.0 is Presented by

I finally have the information about the Gatty 2011 Car & Truck Show.

This event will be June 12, 2011 at the Smokey Stadium in Sevierville, TN.

The stadium is located 100 yards north of I-40, off of Exit #407, in Sevier County, Tennessee.

Show categories were already posted in another thread.

Remember, the registration fee for the show helps pay for the trophies and goody bags. If you do not plan to enter the show, there's a small registration fee ($5 before May/ $10 after) for the weekend's events to cover goody bags (with a door prize raffle ticket).

During the show, we will have Autocross sponsored by Bill Howell and Musclerides. Bill has all of the cones and equipment as well as a track layout. BTW, he would “love to challenge anyone here to a little friendly competition” with his OLD 72 (with a modern HEMI) in the autocross.

Show times are 7:00 am to 4:00 pm. Car show voting will end at 2:00 but autocross will continue until 4:00. Awards will be presented at a group dinner that evening.

Some important information about the Autocross:
  • This will NOT be an SCCA event.
  • Insurance is required and is included in the price.
  • Safety is NUMBER 1!
  • There will be waivers signed (Insurance requirement).
  • If anyone gets stupid, they're done. No do-overs!
  • 16 is the minimum age for ride-alongs.
  • Drivers and riders must have Snell rated helmets. They can not be motorcycle rated and must have a 2000 or newer rating.
  • Seatbelts are required for drivers and riders. Factory equipment is fine.
  • This event will be run similar to most autocross events.
  • Participants will be in groups (probably 4).
  • Everyone participating will have to help run the event. While one group runs another group will work the cones....on and on.
  • We can do whatever we like (Chicago boxes, slalom, etc).
  • Bill has timing lights that allow up to 7 cars on course. Of course, two are plenty.Bill said he does 75 cars at events every year and they still get 6-8 runs, safely. Bring plenty of gas.
  • Members with experience are more than welcome to help out with track set-up, etc. Ride along instruction always helps, especially with newbies.
  • We will need help in tech early in the morning.
  • Tech items - brief inspection - battery secure, no floor mats or anything else loose in the interior, good brake pedal, seatbelts, helmets.........
  • We need 45-50 cars in order to pay for this event. Insurance is expensive.

  • Car Show only- $20
