For three days this October, a section of downtown Chattanooga, Tennessee, will be transformed into an automotive lover’s paradise. The highly-anticipated second annual Chattanooga Motorcar Festival returns Friday the 15th of October through Sunday the 17th.
Make no mistake. The event isn’t just returning for 2021 – it’s evolving before your very eyes.
This bonafide motorcar festival will include all four significant aspects – a Concours d’Elegance, a road rally, a Mecum car auction, and a race-track competition.
For example, they designed a new 2.1-mile road course that winds through the picturesque riverfront in downtown Chattanooga. To ensure the new layout struck the right balance, they brought in retired Formula 1 driver Brian Reman.
In addition to the wheel-to-wheel racing, Mecum car auction, and a bevy of other events, there will be nightly street festivities in the West Village. The great news? Everything at this event is centralized and within easy walking distance.
To give us a deeper perspective of this upcoming event, we talked with this year’s legendary Grand Marshall, Corky Coker. What follows is an edited transcript of our conversation.
