Glenwood Springs, Colorado - June 3-5, 2016
64th Annual Rallye Glenwood Springs
The MG Car Club - Rocky Mountain Centre invites you to join us for the 64nd Annual Rallye Glenwood Springs, the oldest continually-held time-speed-distance rally in the United States, on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, June 3, 4, & 5, 2016. This years event is a week earlier to allow participants to also attend the MG2016 event in Louisville, KY June 13-17, 2016.

The Rallye Glenwood Springs weekend is a marvelous opportunity, not just for MG owners, but for sports car enthusiasts of every mark (British, American, German, Italian, Japanese) to come together for sunny days, cool nights, and unique events. The fun begins on Friday with the scenic road tour from the Denver suburb of Lakewood, touring through canyons and over mountain passes in the heart of the Rocky Mountains to the scenic resort town of Glenwood Springs. Again this year is a youth tour so that your kids will have their own tie-breaker questions to answer. Saturday's main event is a time-speed-distance rally to challenge both novice and experienced rallyists. 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, Funkana, 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 63 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. And 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.
