I'll be moving to Charlotte soon and want to see the Austin F1 grand prix on Nov 2nd. This is the general route i've come up with.
In particular i want to see New Orleans and Birmingham's Barber Motorsports Park and also hoping to find a fun twisty road through the Smoky Mountains. I also put Mobile, AL in there because I was told that would probably be nicer than a more direct route to New Orleans. I'm not dead set on Dallas but it sounds like it would something nice to see. I'm planning to spend 6 days on the road total, so about 6+ hrs per day on the road. I wouldn't mind to change that to 8 hrs a day if that means going through more scenic roads and nice towns/places/landmarks. I wonder if there are any nice coastal roads i'm missing that could be relatively easily incorporated into this route, should I go through Mobile between Birmingham and New Orleans?
I'm fairly new to the US and any other advice is welcomed.
