The European Rally – Time, Speed, Distance Demo Day

July 24, 2021 @ 11:00 am 2:00 pm

General Admission

For many people, motor sports racing consists solely of track or off-road competition in which highly trained drivers take the wheel behind high-priced machines, and take high risks for even higher stakes. In most scenarios, speed is king, and the winner in the first person across the line…period. However, this isn’t always the case, and there is a very important part of motor racing that focuses exclusively on precision, and in which math, and the help of a good co-pilot could mean the difference between victory and defeat. 

Join us for our next Demo Day “The European Rally – Time, Speed, Distance” as we take a closer look at the phenomena of the European Rally and examine the factors that make it one of the most challenging and cerebral competitions in racing today.

  • 1938 Jaguar 3.5 Litre SS 100
  • 1954 Austin-Healey 110-4 BN1
