Once again, Sports and Classic cars from all over the region will take to the winding roads of Wisconsin's Kettle Moraine on Saturday October 5, 2013 for the 3rd Annual Kettle Call Road Rally. Driver/Navigator teams will partipate in this loose time-speed-distance format course through some of the greatest driving roads in the Midwest, while taking in the spectacular fall colors of the area. The route begins in the village of Elkhart Lake, WI- home of the world famous Road America-on the very street where European-style road racing first came to America. The course winds through the glaciated hills surrounding the resort village, returning the teams to Elkhart Lake for a complimentary reception at the checkered flag. The event is held rain or shine.
Teams should plan on meeting Saturday at Burdie's Nest at 2:00pm. Park anywhere (legally!) on adjacent streets. A mandatory drivers meeting will occur at 2:30, and the first car will leave the start at 3:00. The course is roughly 90-120 minutes long, putting the last car back at Burdie's Nest by 5:30 pm...where we will have a wine and beer reception, and participants may patronize any of the great restaurants within walking distance of the site.
Don't have a navigator? Feel free to tour along with the other competitors and enjoy the roads in leisure. Either way, this is a low-stress, fun event...and a great chance to meet fellow motoring enthusiasts!
Priority booking is extended to all cars pre-1974. Part of what makes the event great are the quality and variety of the vintage cars in attendance...we encourage you to bring yours out for this special day.
The fee is $60 per car, which includes 2 people for the complimentary reception afterwards.
This year's sponsor is FuelFed, the online Chicago-based motoring enthusiast group.
