Saturday, May 14th marks the 4th Annual F-Type Forever Car Club’s: Tail of the Dragon – Drive and Dine weekend. This is an event you won’t want to miss. While catered to Jaguar F-Type Owners, it is open to any other makes and models that may be interested in participating.

Registration is filling up and we anticipate this to be our best attended event yet! Full map with itinerary will be provided at check in. We have some amazing roads to drive and views to see along the way. Total first day trip is expected to be over 150 miles long, including trips up and down the Tail.

****Tapoco Lodge is now sold out for this weekend***

This will be a multi-day event with Tail of the Dragon being on Saturday for the day-trippers and for those who are in town and want to explore more roads we will venture to some less traveled twists and turns on Sunday throughout North Carolina. Full maps and itinerary will be forth coming as we confirm registration head count.
