Event description

Description

The Tomcatt is named in memory of Tom Curda (aka Tomcatt) who passed away May 24th, 2006. Route 26 was his all-time favorite driving road. This year marks the 14th anniversary of his passing. This meet is very special to many of us as it combines two of the best thing about S2000 ownership:

Friendship: Many of the friendships made at the Tomcatt have continued throughout life's twists and turns and have transcended the actual ownership of the car. Everyone at the Tomcatt meet is a friend.

The Drive: The roads of southern Ohio are full of twisties and elevation changes; perfect for the S2000. You will drive through rural areas complete with rivers, forests, farms and covered bridges. The drive starts with the run up Ohio Rt. 555 to get you warmed up and ready for the afternoon's fun. Route 26 from Zamesville to Marietta, Ohio (previously one of Car & Driver's 10 best drives in the USA), is the main attraction. This is a spectacular rollercoaster of a road. The drive takes about 6 hours, and covers about 215 miles. There will be a lunch break and a stop for gas. If you like to challenge your car and yourself and you enjoy the sound and feel of VTEC, this is the drive for you! If you like to have fun when behind the wheel, this drive will not disappoint. Expect to drive the way the car was meant to be driven!

Great People, Great Car, Great Time!

The Tentative Itinerary:

Friday: 6:00 pm - Dinner at Austyn's. Not really a formal part of the Tomcatt but it seems to have become a tradition. We'll meet in the hotel lobby at 5:45 pm for the drive to the restaurant. Good food is even better with great company.

Saturday: 9:00 am - The Tomcatt Run. There will be at least two groups for the drive, a somewhat spirited group and a more sedate group. Select the group you'd like to be in and come along on Route 555 to lunch at Muddy Misers in historic Zanesville, OH. Relax on the patio for a bit and then get ready for the main event, the drive down Route 26. The route has been changed to make it more interesting (and less interstate) and fun to drive. You will arrive at the Hampton Inn in plenty of time to get ready for the Saturday night dinner.

Saturday 6:00 pm - Spagna's for Dinner. An amazing Italian restaurant with generous portions, a large selection of great Italian food and an amazing wine list. We'll meet in the lobby at 5:30 pm for the drive to the restaurant. Make sure you bring your appetite.
