The 2019 Opel Nationals will be held Saturday, October 19th in conjunction with the Fall AutoFair at the famed Charlotte Motor Speedway.
A lot of pre planning has been going on behind the scenes as we want to make sure this will be one of the best Opel National Events you could attend!
The hotel has been set up with 25 rooms blocked off for the Opel Club. The hotel is the Hilton Garden Inn in Concord, North Carolina. The hotel is less than a mile from the event at the Speedway. Cost per night is $139, which is a reduced rate from $179. $40 savings. You can either call the hotel directly at (704) 979-2900 or go to the Opel Club reservation link: https://hiltongardeninn.hilton…/index.jhtml?WT.mc_id=POG If you call, be sure you tell them that you want to reserve a room for the Opel Car Club. Rooms have been set aside for October 18th and 19th with check out on Sunday, the 20th. The hotel has a fantastic breakfast that is $9.95 for all you can eat.
The last day you can get the reduced rate at the hotel is September 18th. After that, the rooms will be released back to the general public at their normal rates.
The parking lot is very large with plenty of parking for trailers. I was told that we really needed a larger parking lot to accommodate trailers as the other hotel parking lot was really too small. I agreed.
There will be an auction on Saturday evening with proceeds after expenses going to The Make-A-Wish Foundation.
We are also planning on a small band to play Saturday evening. These guys are really good and you will enjoy their music.
I’m still working with the AutoFair people on where we will be located inside the speedway. I’m thinking we will be placed in a prime location for maximum exposure.
