At 4118 feet, Highlands NC is surrounded by national forests and wonderful mountain roads. Western NC has become increasingly popular with car enthusiasts as the place where driver, vehicle, and road can be put to the test.
The team that stages the Highlands Motoring Festival has created this "driver’s experience" to take advantage of the ideal season between the peak summer months and the October fall color season. It is a time with better lodging availability, moderate temperatures, and less congested roads.
This is primarily a driving event with tour routes designed to take advantage of the area’s twisty back roads that are less traveled. The route’s designers are fellow enthusiasts who want to share hidden secret roads. The run groups are limited in size to allow each group to stay together and enhance fellowship among enthusiasts.
Sunday’s "High Octane in the Mountains" is intended to be a low key gathering of interesting cars and their owners who will want to share their stories of a great weekend.
Mountain Motoring is brought to you by the Highlands Motoring Festival team, an all-volunteer group of classic car enthusiasts.
