Come join us on the third annual North Atlantic Audi Club's "The Pot of Gold" Tour and Fall Rally on Saturday, October 12th for an afternoon of driving, exploring, and camaraderie with fellow participants on a fun drive through central Massachusetts region as we take in some of the fall foliage, lakes and local fall "Attractions". The event begins at 10 AM with the first car off at 11:00 AM. The tour / rally is approximately 60 miles and will take about 3 hours to complete.
Take a look at our previous event / write-up for more information and local color (pun intended). Registration fee is $15 / car and registration is now open on Motorsportreg.com
The rally/tour begins at Shrewsbury Audi, 780 Boston Turnpike, Shrewsbury, MA 01545 and ends at a casual restaurant in north Worcester, MA where you can have a late lunch or 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.
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)
- 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.
