This will be the premier East Coast MMM event for 1996, and will be held at Summit Point Vintage Raceway near Harper's Ferry, W.VA. from Thursday 26th September through Sunday 29th September. We will be staying at the Cliffside , comfortable motel with inside pool just outside the historic and picturesque Harper's Ferry, and a short drive from the Raceway. The weather should be ideal for British cars and the fall colours should be at their peak. The event will coincide with the fall Summit Point SVRA Vintage Racing weekend with practice and qualification going on Thursday and Friday, and races Saturday and Sunday. We will have our own MMM area with awnings close to the main grandstand to display our cars, have an MMM flea market and provide shade or protection from any weather (MMM cars may be securely left at the track Saturday night).
The arrangements will be similar to the 60th Birthday Bash of 1993 except an extra activity has been added. On Friday we will assemble after breakfast, caravan to Bill Scott's plantation where we will have a concours for the driven MMM cars. Then a catered lunch on the lawn (or you may bring a hamper) and we will take a 30 mile tour of the spectacular hunt country, returning to Cliffside mid to late afternoon. This means most people will register Thursday afternoon at the Cliffside , although you may check in earlier or later at your convenience.
We will have our own MMM dinner Friday evening at the Cliffside with honoured guests, awards and activities. Saturday after breakfast we will caravan to the track for the vintage races, fleas market etc. We will be able to take our cars on the track between races for one or more parade laps (no racing) Saturday and Sunday. We have access to the pits both days. Saturday night we have been invited by Bill Scott to join his famous lobster feast in the orchard at the track, where we will mingle with fellow vintage racing enthusiasts.
Sunday we will again caravan to the track, racing goes on till late afternoon, though some of you may need to pull out early. Food (lunch) is available from vendors.
A tour of Harper's Ferry will be arranged on Saturday for those more interested in the antique, art and tea shops and history of the town, which is like a Victorian Williamsburg.
