Pre-Event for Terlingua 2018

October 7-11, 2018

(Sunday through Thursday)


Welcome to the Pre-Event for Terlingua 2018!


We have some changes to this year’s event so listen up.


The Pre-Event for T18 will run from Sunday, October 7, 2018, through Thursday morning, October 11, 2018, in Alpine, Texas.  There is no Star Gazer event this year.  Our official Terlingua photographer, John Albani, will be with us in Alpine for the entire Pre-Event!


There will be limited inside parking available for those cars being shipped to The Stable for the Pre-Event.  This is on a “First come-First served basis.”  There will be a $100.00 charge for this service which includes indoor vehicle storage at The Stable during the T18 events, as well as unloading and loading assistance with your transport company.


There will be a $125.00 Pre-Event Fee that covers the catered Breakfasts, Lunches and Wednesday Dinner, Live Music and Car Show (see red highlighted items, below).  The Sunday, Monday and Tuesday night dinners are not included in the Fee; however, a special menu (fixed price) is being arranged with the restaurants, along with seating together for our dining enjoyment.


We have arranged a special group hotel rate that is the same as last year at the Alpine Quarter Circle 7 Host Hotel of $115.00 per night plus taxes.  Please contact the Hotel directly for reservations and mention “Stable” for special room rate.  Relax with the group and enjoy after dinner libations around the Hotel’s fire-pit, Indoor Swimming Pool and Jacuzzi.  www.quartercircle7hotel.com


Please note:  Due to the large number of last minute requests in 2017 for Jon Lund tuning and dyno services, only those who are signed up for the 2018 Pre-Event will be scheduled for dyno and Lund tuning services in 2018.  This will allow sufficient time for Jon Lund to personally assess, then tune and test your vehicle.  In order to secure a tuning slot, you must contact Lund Racing at support@lundracing,com. You will need to SUBMIT a support ticket and in the subject line “TPS dyno-tune request”, then give a brief description of your vehicle.  Then pre-payment will secure a time slot.  All dyno-tuning reservations need to be secured and pre-paid by Sept. 15th.
