What We Did


    Socializing with whoever shows up on Friday. This is slated to be very casual. We'll checkout the night life of Nashville until you're ready to end the evening. We had two main groups. One group went downtown to checkout the HardRock Cafe and another group went to dinner closer to the motel. Then we hung around and talked about MR2's


    About 15 people met at the local Shoney's for breakfast at 8:00 am. We then gathered in the Kroger parking lot across the street to check each others cars out. There were about 25 MR2s that showed up. We left for the Rally at about 11:30 am. There was a short drivers meeting. We took a 3 hour drive through the backroads of TN & KY ending up at the Corvette Museum in Bowling Green, KY. After the museum we went to Hops Microbrewery for dinner. We all went back to the motel and hung out and (surprise!) talked about MR2's. Some of the group struck out on their own to explore Nashville.


    Those who cared to partake or watch caravaned to the local SCCA autocross at Twin Fountains Track. This is an extremely fun track and mixes the best aspects of autocrossing with open track racing. The track is wide, smooth and full of turns. There are also stands for the spectators, concession stands and real bathrooms!

        After two gourgeous days of weather in Nashville, Sunday morning started out gloomy and threatened to rain. At about 11:00 am it fufilled it's promise and began to rain. The SCCA club held the drivers meeting in the rain and the first driving session was held (in true F1 fashion) in the rain. This provided lots of entertainment for the fans in the stands. There were many MR2s participating and for awhile a white MR2 MKI NA held FTD (fastest time of day).
