The 2019 British V8 meet will be hosted in Wytheville Va. at the La Quinta Inn near I-71 and I-81. Our group visited this venue for the Rendezvous 2017 on way to the Lewisburg WV. Meet. The dates scheduled are June 2-5th Sunday, with exit on Thursday AM, June 6th. That is 4 nights at the Hotel with a charge of $85+ INCLUDING Tax and fees per night . Breakfast is also included. This property is a very nice Hotel including a total remodel to be completed in very near future. We will post Hotel Registration details when the Event Registration details are finalized. Our members who attended the Rendezvous 2017 had a great experience in Wytheville. We plan for Registration to open in January 2019 so MARK Your Calendars! Various activities are planned plus we hope to have some conversion vendors on site.
Our Team are volunteers who take time out of their life to prepare activities for this event. Please let us know of any suggestions or ideas you think may enhance the groups experience.
More info to follow as the details are finalized.

I thought Townsend was close. This will be the closest V8 Meet ever for me.(22 years). I am only a 90 minute blast up I-81 away.

Some of the longest past drives (for me) one way:

2001 Sebring, FL 793 miles

2002 Grand Rapids, MI 663 miles

2008 Port Washington, WI 776 miles

2012 Palestine, TX 935 miles

2013 Omaha, NE 1021 miles

2014 Colorado Springs, CO 1405 miles

Looking forward to seeing all of you next June. The distance from Fayetteville,Tn. is 353 miles. Not too bad a drive. We plan to arrive on Sat. and begin preparations. The Hotel honors the low rate a few days either side of the meet. Come early and we can do a Warm-Up there! We plan to have the Registration form up around Jan. 2019. The TEAM is working to insure a great meet. The Mountains are close by with many twisty roads plus other activities to keep all us entertained. Hopefully there will be a few vendors there also.
