Mitsubishis Take On the Dragon - MTOD
Its that time to start up the official thread for MTOD '11. The 2nd Annual Mitsubishi's Take On the Dragon Meet is fast approaching. Gameplan for the weekend will surround the trip to the Tail of The Dragon US HWY 129. For those who haven't heard about this road, it is one of the biggest car enthusiast roads in the country. In an 11 mile stretch, this hwy contains 318 turns. Its every car nuts dream.

What better place to meet new friends, see old friends, enjoy the scenery all around and get out and actually enjoy the road.

There will be a thread starting March 7th, 2011 for lodging.

The only thing that is planned for this meet is the Rally over to Tail of the Dragon and spending time over there. The rest of the time can be spent in a infinite amount of ways. There are plenty of things to do in the area like:

Horseback Riding
Site Seeing downtown Gatlinburg
Eating Out downtown
Driving other roads
Chillen at the Cabin

The possibilities are endless.

What: The 2nd annual Mitsubishi's Take On the Dragon National Meet
Where: Gatlinburg, Tennessee (also Tail of the Dragon HWY 129 in Deal's Gap, NC)
When: July 20th-24th, 2011 Who: Any and all Mitsu's and/or Mitsu fanatics
Why: To have a good time!

We had over 50 people attend the 1st MTOD last year, I am hoping for over 100 this year. MTOD '11 promises to be BIGGER, BETTER, LONGER!!! The faster way to HWY 129 is open this year so no more 3 hour drive to get there. Clingmans Dome is also open this year, so there will be more to do!

Here is video of some Evo's making the run. Note; This is not a closed road and the speed limit is like 30mph. On average 9 people a year die making this run. (mostly on bikes)
