2012 Smart Spring Nationals-Destination Daytona (Cancelled)

Planning is now underway for the 2012 Smart Spring Nationals-Destination Daytona to be held near Daytona Beach, Florida on March 1,2,3 and 4 of 2012.

We have secured a world class venue that includes in a single location a Hotel and condo's, 3 restaurants, a Bar, A huge covered pavilion for gatherings out of any poor weather, almost unlimited parking, RV parking and dry camping on site, a fuel station immediately adjacent and easy access to I-95.

In addition is a covered registration area, the potential for cash bars for any group events, the world's largest Harley Davidson dealer and easy drives to St. Augustine, The Beaches, The Space Center, the Daytona Speedway and even Orlando and the Theme Parks.

We have secured unbelievable rates for the hotels and condo's during the high demand spring season and are now making plans to include a beautiful group drive through a State Park and down the beaches, optional trips to all of the sightseeing venues, A group BBQ dinner, dancing to your favorite tunes in the pavilion and a number of other group activities still in the works.

Much is uncertain in the world of smart with dealerships closing and very little communication from smart USA or from MB but we know we like to get together with these great little cars and we believe we have a great location at a great time of year.

What could be better than Spring Break in Daytona! Watch this space for further details and registration and hotel info coming soon and in the meantime block out Mar 1-4 2012 and plan on meeting us at the Spring Nationals-Destination Daytona!!!!!!

How do you book a room without knowing where it is located???

Sounds like a good reason to go SOUTH for a bit and get away from all the snow and cold...Let me know when to start whining about how it should be closer to Minnesota.. and how far it is to drive....Whine Whine Whine.. (just practicing)

Jet, you are the biggest southerner of us all, though you have chosen to go into hiding in the great white north! But yeah, we know how to party down in Dixie!
