Spring is here, and you know what that means — time to drive some off-roaders and convertibles! This year’s DROPTOPS & DIRT will take place on Tuesday, May 15th, 2018.
Once again, we will return to the rugged trails and twisty roads surrounding beautiful Calamigos Ranch in Malibu, California.
Combining competitive comparisons on challenging roads and trails in off-road vehicles as well as drives through scenic, twisty canyon roads on the road in convertibles, the day will feature lots of driving with excellent photo locations and a tasty lunch.
This event is open to all current MPG members, however only Journalist and Analyst members may drive. All other active members, photographers, and guests may ride along and join us for lunch.
Don’t miss your chance to drive the McLaren 570 S Spider pictured above, as well as the other vehicles listed below!
See you at Calamigos!
