Tour: North Loop Tour to Somewhere V2

Join us for the North Loop to Somewhere V2 tour on Sunday, July 10th 

Registration opens June 18th, closes July 1st.

Come join the 2022 North Loop Tour to Somewhere V2 - added after first one filled up quickly - highlighting several interesting roads “up north” in addition to some classic rural northwest Washington scenery. 

We start at the Safeway on Olympic Place in Arlington on Sunday, July 10th and stop in Concrete for lunch at the Lonestar Restaurant and Waterin' Hole. After more loops (can you count them all?) we finish at Evelyn's Tavern in Clear Lake. During the day, you'll have a chance to experience some roads twice (dead-end turnarounds), practice speed drills at the morning rest stop (single-facility - thus small groups), enjoy a bountiful lunch, go around in more circles and finish up at Evelyn's - the classic roadhouse along Rt 9 in Clear Lake. 

Even with great scenery the focus of this tour is on the driving experience and small-group camaraderie - so the tour is limited in size and scope. With the tour being held in July this year, we hope to avoid some of the weather challenges we’ve had in the past (including two rare tour cancellations).

Note that this tour is limited to 40 cars – four groups of ten cars. Because we loop back on many roads, being a good neighbor is an important consideration so limiting the number of “Porsche Impressions” during any single 40-minute period is an important part of the North Loop tour management. For this reason, we will not expand the number of groups/cars regardless of the waiting list or the number of leads/and sweeps who volunteer. If you lived along these rural routes, we’re certain you’d understand.
