Event description

Description

WAPA Washington Automotive Press Association is pleased to announce our 2018 Rally in the Virginia countryside! As in the past, attendees will be able to experience a behind-the-wheel test of a large number of new vehicles from many automotive manufacturers. Representatives from the manufacturers will be on hand, so this is a great opportunity to network with them and other members.

For 2018 the WAPA Rally will be held on Thursday, October 11th at Summit Point Motorsports Park from 8 am to 4 pm. While there will be no track events, a selection of driving routes on local country roads will be provided. Photo and Instagram ops, rolling roads, pleasant company, and great vehicles - what could be a better way to spend a day?

Registration will be open for WAPA Members, Industry Representatives and approved members of the automotive press. For 2018, non-automotive media guests will be reviewed on an individual basis.

Thank you to all our Rally sponsors!
