I would be down $1000 three days of fun. Hotel, food, good people. Where do we do it? PNW, back roads of CO?

Sounds like Patrick (OGpaint) is taking bull by the horns here.....race/rally is geared towards the vintage speed/stock early crowd :-" I think the finish line planned is the Seattle vintage meet in July?
Pat you're gonna have to start a dedicated thread bro Wink

Stoked to see what Patrick comes up with, his ability to plan a multiday trip is world class.

Behind the scenes I am working feverishly on this, and an announcement is soon to come. Step one, getting a few commitments in stone to compete is complete. Step two, working on details is mid stream right now. I'm gonna drive the split to Seattle this week and predrive a couple of proposed routes.

Here's the basic plan for now:
-Point to Point Road Rally, around 100miles ideally
-focus on a beautiful scenic drive to a DESTINATION for a gathering
-Do not want to be too exclusionary, want everyone to have an experience...but, the front of the pack will be vintage cars that meet a basic set of rules and are "competing". Behind that will be a group of people who have vintage cars but prefer to travel in a group at a slightly more relaxed pace. In the rear, others who want to join for a vintage experience. The only request in the rear will be that your car is mechanically sound to complete the route and fits your personal definition of "vintage". NO MULHOLLAND LOOKERS!

Basic rules to compete: Too be announced
-the basic principle will be cars built with technology and style of what would have been available in the year 1960 with very few other limitations

This is sounding very interesting. Have not made much progress on the oval, but have been gathering up bits and pieces. Hmmmmm. :-k
