  • The 14th Annual Tomcatt Drive - Marietta,OH June 14-16, 2019


    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 roller-coaster 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!

        Not bad for an event that's 9 months away. We have 11 who have already registered and most of them want to be in the somewhat spirited drive gropu. We may have to to have 3 groups at this rate.

                    I will be there again this year. It is my favorite met, because the drive out and back home on the back roads of WV are as fun as the TomCatt it self.

                    P.S. I have driven an S in Hawaii, but it wasn't mine. Does that count?

                          I wanted to come to the Tomcatt this year since I missed it last year with hip surgery.
                          School doesn't get out till Friday the 14th, on the same weekend, and I'm afraid with me retiring that I won't be able to get away to drive over Friday evening with having to clear all my stuff out on that day.
                          We'll see.
                          I have family in Marietta, so a place to stay is not an issue.
                          I'll keep you informed as I know!
                          I do plan on going to the Cincinnati Tech Day this coming weekend.
                          It will be great seeing some of my favorite car guys on Earth!

                            If I get to come I want to be in the "slow" group, ha!

                              I'll see if we can find one for you, Gary. It'll be great to see you again. It's been forever.

                                Feels like 10 yrs.!
                                S2KCA was such a big part of my life at one time.
                                I think the big KY yearly event was the zenith of my time since 2010.
