Come join us on the Sixth Annual North Atlantic Audi Club's Fall Rally/Tour "Apples Galore" on Saturday, October 17th for an afternoon of driving, exploring, and camaraderie with fellow participants on a fun drive through central Massachusettes as we take in some of the fall foliage, small town centers with country stores and local fall "Attractions". The event begins at 11 AM with the first car off at 12:00 Noon. The tour / rally is approximately 60 miles and will take about 3 hours to complete.
Registration fee is $15 / car and registration is now open on Motorsportreg.com
The rally/tour begins at Alpha Cars, 649 Massachusetts Ave, Boxborough, MA 01719 and ends at a casual restaurant near Worcester, MA where you can have an early dinner if you choose along with re-hydration. And no, you do not need a special rally car; your everyday vehicle is just fine, as we use public roads and obey all traffic rules. This year we will only be driving on paved roads.
There are two Rally classes where Drivers and their navigators will follow simple rally instructions that guide them along scenic roads of the region:
- TDS (Time-Speed-Distance) class where cars are scored on time over distance between checkpoints with penalties for being either too fast (or too slow). All targeted speed limits will be at or below the posted speed limits.
- Touring Class where drivers go on the scenic tour at their own pace.
Bring the children as they can be actively involved in the event ... looking for signs, reading the directions or just plain "helping" when they remind dad that he made the wrong turn or is going the wrong speed. Rally route is on entirely paved roads. And finally, be sure to bring a camera as there will be numerous opportunities to capture some fantastic pictures.
