DC Fiats, one of the most active regional Fiat clubs in the country, will be holding their annual Catoctin Run ...and Pig Roast on Sunday, June 9th.

The drive starts at the Cozy Inn in Thurmont, MD with cars departing at 9:00 AM. We'll be driving through the scenic Catoctin Mountains to our halfway stop in Brunswick, MD. From there, we'll be following the C&O Canal north through Harper's Ferry and we'll eventually end up at Club President Todd Rosenthal's home in Hagerstown, MD for a Pig Roast and pot-luck lunch. DC Fiats will be providing the pig and members are asked to bring a side or dessert to share with the group. Drinks are bring your own.

If you've never driven our Catoctin Run, you're in for a real treat. One of our club members has developed and perfected a great drive over the years that takes us on some awesome roads that are sure to bring a smile to your face.

Even if you can't make the drive, feel free to join us for lunch.

If you haven't been to a DC Fiats event yet, this is an excellent opportunity to connect with fellow Fiat owners (both new and vintage) in the Washington, DC metropolitan area. More details on the drive, lunch and club can be found at the DC Fiats web site: www.dcfiats.org/events (http://www.dcfiats.org/events). If attending, please RSVP using the email on the web site.

I had an opportunity to pre-drive this run yesterday. If you like driving, you're going to love it. If you like shifting, you may love it even more.

I suggest attendees do a little extra upper body, arm and clutch foot excerises before Sunday. And trust me, you'll be ready for the feast after the drive.

It's not too late to RSVP if you haven't already. www.dcfiats.org/events (http://www.dcfiats.org/events)

Looking forward to seeing you there!

Thanks for the pictures, but there is no picture of the pig itself. Hopefully someone has some.

Hahaha...Chris and his pssssh, psssssh noise :D I know, I know...I'm just jealous :)

23:45 to 23:51 is a good example comparing the stock Sport exhaust to an RRM exhaust (on a beautiful Rame I might add) to the stock Abarth exhaust. Same with 28:34 to 28:43.

I missed one turn and you couldn't cut it out?! :dunce: The tricky part was finding someplace wide-enough for the Abarths to make a U-ey so we could get back on course.

Nice video! Though it looks a little faster than the posted limits which we were absolutely following the entire day.

I also have to commend everyone on the nice, even spacing as evidenced in the video. Sometimes we'll have worried drivers riding up the bumper of the car in front; freaks me out every time there's a turn or stop ahead.

I hope everyone had an enjoyable time.
