Anyone interested in participating in this event should log into the registration system at http://reg.tdifest.com and edit your registration to add this event. Remember to add it for each person in your party who wants to do the group drive, even if he/she is only a passenger.
It took me a moment to figure it out.
Log in to the fest site (link is above).
Click on "My Registrations" in the menu column on the left.
Click on the pencil icon under the heading "tools".
Scroll down to the activities price list located between the user name and the vehicle details to add the Mountain drive to your bucket list.

Wife said there is no way she would go up that mountain with me.I left her and my son at the 11,000 foot level of Pike's Peak back in 1982 ..... I drove on up (14,114 feet) in my first VW Diesel (1980 Rabbit) ........ it sure needed a turbo.

EDIT: Ironically, 140 years ago today (8/18/1873) was the first ascent of Mt. Whitney (14,505 ft).............
