66TH ANNUAL RALLYE GLENWOOD SPRINGS, JUNE 8-10, 2018
The MG Car Club – Rocky Mountain Centre invites you to join us for the 66th Annual Rallye Glenwood Springs, the oldest continually-held time-speed- distance rally in the United States, on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, June 8, 9, 10, 2018.
The weekend is a marvelous opportunity, not just for MG owners, but for sports car enthusiasts of every marque (British, American, German, Italian, Japanese) to come together for sunny days, cool nights, and unique events. The fun begins on Friday with the Tour to Glenwood Springs, which will take you through some beautiful scenery on the way to Glenwood Springs. Saturday’s main event is the more rigorous time-speed- distance rallye to challenge both novice and experienced rallyists, starting and finishing in Glenwood Springs, rallying through canyons and over mountain passes in the heart of the Rocky Mountains.
Again, this year is a youth tour so that your kids will have their own tie-breaker questions to answer. Spend the day winding through the beautiful mountain valleys around Glenwood Springs. The weekend culminates with a social gathering Saturday night and the Car Show, Funkhana, and Awards Presentation on Sunday.
Since its inception, the MGCC-RMC has sponsored the Rallye, which began when a hardy group of sports car owners discovered the joys of motoring in Colorado in MGs that still had drop- down tops and running boards. The Rocky Mountains of central Colorado, with some of the most breathtaking scenery in America, formed the backdrop for the Rallye Glenwood Springs through 65 previous years. Vintage and classic cars from as far away as California and Illinois have shared the twisting mountain roads with their newer counterparts for octane-related festivities. Enthusiasts have come from as far away as England to drive their sports cars through such fabled Colorado mining towns as Leadville and Aspen on their way to Glenwood Springs.
