Re-run of Historic 1957 New England Rally

May have to be moved to events, but Porsche ran a number of 356's in this rally between 1954-1957.

Save October 11 – 14, 2018 For The Great American Mountain Rally Revival
In the fall of 2017 my friend and sometimes Rally Navigator Steve McKelvie posted on his blog a story about the 1954-1957 Great American Mountain Rally that was run through New England.

This story peaked my curiosity, and being from New England thought it would be a cool idea to try and retrace the original route from the one of the series running.

The original rally ran for almost 1100 miles from NYC up to the Canadian border and back down along the Hudson Valley to Poughkeepsie NY.

At this point in time we have created a 3 day rally of approximately 800 miles which will traverse most of the original route. Over the next few months we will be performing a reconnoiter of the route utilizing the original documents and in car navigation.

Come October 11-14-2018 The Great American Mountain Rally Revival will be run.
For more details on the original running and the revival please see Steve’s blog below:
