67th Annual Rallye Glenwood Springs, June 7-9, 2019 Celebrating 90 years of MG Sports Cars

March15th, 2019, Denver, Colorado – FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

The MG Car Club – Rocky Mountain Centre invites you to join us for the 67th Annual Rallye Glenwood Springs, the oldest continually-held time-speed-distance (TSD) rally in the United States, on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, June 7, 8, & 9, 2019.

The Rallye Glenwood Springs 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 a time-speed-distance rally to challenge both novice and experienced rallyists. This year’s rally starts in the Denver suburb of Littleton, rallying through canyons and over mountain passes in the heart of the Rocky Mountains to the scenic resort town of Glenwood Springs. Saturday’s main event is a tour 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. As a tribute to the first MG sports cars, Pre-WWII MGs are featured this year, and will be on display at the car show at Two Rivers Park. Spectator admission to the car show is free of charge.

Since its inception, the MGCC-RMC has sponsored this 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, have formed the backdrop for the Rallye Glenwood Springs through 66 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-fueled 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.

Registration is only $70 for all the driving events and the car show, or $25 if you choose to enter only the car show (before May 20; the social event and regalia are extra). Additional information and registration forms are available on the MG Car Club, Rocky Mountain Centre website at http://mgcc.org/. You can register for the Rallye and order regalia on-line through the website starting in April. You can contact the Registrar Pam Frakes at 303-748-9773 or the Publicity Chairman Joe Gunderson at 303-791-4902 or email at glenwoodrallye@gmail.com.
