Chattanooga MotorCar Festival Sets the Bar for Automotive Gatherings
Several months ago, we heard about the Chattanooga MotorCar Festival and all of the big plans that the DeFoor Brothers had in the works. Since we have some experience organizing car events here in Chattanooga, Tennessee, we knew they would face some obstacles, but their passion and level of investment (both time and money) would carry them through to the finish line. The end result was a spectacular display of automotive history on the streets of Chattanooga. The event featured European sports cars and road race cars to vintage Corvettes, hot rods, classics and more. Along with the many styles of cars on display, there were also many ways that participants could enjoy the event. Friday featured time trials racing on Riverfront Parkway and a Cars & Coffee event to get things started. Both days of the event featured the "High Jinks Rallye", which featured a countryside course designed from our Coker Tire Challenge routes. On Saturday, the West Village area of Chattanooga filled with historic automobiles, as the Concours d'Elegance took place. Automotive celebrities such as Wayne Carini, Tanner Foust, Bill Elliott and many more were on hand for the Chattanooga MotorCar Festival, and our very own Wade Kawasaki was invited to be an official judge of the Concours d'Elegance. The two-day event was packed with activities both day and night, and we were thrilled to be a part of it. The DeFoor Brothers put together an amazing event that will have Chattanooga car guys talking for years to come.
