Rallyemaster Says this year’s Glenwood Rallye is Geared for Older Cars

Kemal Ouwerkerk is no stranger to rallying. He got involved with the club as a kid, and officially joined the MGCC, RMC in 1983.

I grew up around the club and the cars – it becomes part of your life. Over the years, I’ve written many rallies including several Glenwoods. I’ve written the Doc Morgan, and several others when I was a member of Colorado Area Rallyists back in the 1980s and early nineties. I wrote my first Glenwood when I was 15.
For this year’s rally – we’re taking a fresh look at the Glenwood, combining some elements that we have not seen in a long time, or for many rallyists, perhaps ever. So I’ve dusted off some of the old tips and tricks from the 50’s and 60’s, things that were done a long time ago, but have not been done for many years.
Since the TD is the featured car, I’ve written with that in mind. The roads that have been selected, the entire route, really is geared to vintage cars – the speeds are slightly lower, keeping people off of high speed roads as much as possible so they can bring out their older (Pre-1967) cars.
As we’re here to celebrate the Centenary, I’m mindful of the opportunity to look back – There will be come fictional and non-fictional historic elements to the rallye this year – We’ll recap those after the rallye.
As for the roads themselves – I’ve extensively researched the route – many of the roads I selected actually existed in the 1950s, so we’ll be driving on bits of history. It would be great to see some of the older cars on the road, giving people a chance to get out and enjoy them. So dust off the Curta and the rally tables, bring out their old cars and have a nice, enjoyable day. I hope everyone has a good time!

Regalia Update

Order now to receive your swag in time for the Rallye Glenwood Springs

Hello club!

As many of you know, we have modified the process for getting regalia for the MG car club.  You can now order directly from the vendor and have the items sent to your home at any time of the year!

In addition to classic MG, Brexit and club logos, the logo for the 2023 Rallye Glenwood Springs event is now available on the website.  The vendor will fill orders every 2 weeks, so if you order regalia, you should have it on your doorstep within 3 weeks of the order and it will be ready to wear to Glenwood!!

Please order early for Glenwood!!!  To be safe, orders should be made prior to May 10 to ensure the items will be delivered prior to the event.  Most event clothing items will only be available on the website.  There will be limited items to purchase at the event, mostly these items will be celebrating the 100th year of the MG Car Company.

The website is easily accessible through the club homepage at https://mgcc.org/.  From there click on “regalia” and you be at the order site.  All available logos are displayed there.  Scroll down to see the available merchandise, sizes and colors, then select the item, size and color, and finally which logo you want.

The vendor is located near Kipling and C-470 in Littleton, CO so if you want to pick up your items instead of paying for shipping, that is an available option.

Please email Brian Dillon or Jeanne Kerr if you have questions. 

Thank you in advance for your support of this new process!
