Post by qwik510 » 13 Mar 2014 05:42

Hello Everybody,

SPEC510 is coming. Mark your calendars and make your plans.


The dates for this year are May 16 - 17 - 18

John Morton (BRE Datsun 510 Champion Driver) is going to be the Grand Marshal for the Jefferson 500. We are so glad to have him at the track this year. Hopefully, he his schedule will allow him time to come and hang out with us for a while.(I am working on this now)

To those that are new to us this year, The East Coast Datsun 510 meet,
(known as SPEC510 -Summit Point East Coast 510),
we meet every spring at Summit Point Motor Sports Park in West Virginia.
Our event is held during the Jefferson 500 Vintage Car Races.

We camp out at the track and watch the races, display our cars and share in the camaraderie of our common love for these great cars. Wether you bring your 510 or not, you will have a great time. Come join us, it is the Best 510 event east of the Mississippi. All Datsun Cars and owners and Datsun lovers are welcome.

For those that don't want to camp out but still want to join us, there are hotels/motels in nearby
Charles Town, WV and Winchester, VA.

Summit Point is located about 75 miles northwest of Washington, DC.

Is anyone from the Charlotte area going this year? I don't think I am going to make it, but I wonder is anyone could courier a set of hubcaps back for me.

Sorry Brad that you won't be joining us.

We will miss you and the sweet dime.

Shipping hubcaps won't be expensive.
Enjoy The Ride!

Is there anything we should do beforehand?

I've got the car as ready as it's going to be and have tents and sleeping bags...

A bit of rain gear, bottle opener, empty gatorade bottle because if in the middle of the night it's raining and you need to process your own H2O well lets just sat you won't want to step outside your tent :D .

Also a bit of warning for all you first timers. If the roads are wet be extra extra careful because the roads in the Town of Summit Point, are slick like a 5th wheel. It seems when they paved those roads they used a new type of asphalt that has ground up old tires in it, this is what a poliece officer told . I guess it's supposed to grip well in the dry but in the wet a 30 mph turn cam put you in a ditch.
