The MG Car Club - Rocky Mountain Centre invites you to join us for the 62nd Annual Rallye Glenwood Springs, the oldest continually-held time-speed-distance rally in the United States, on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, June 13, 14, & 15, 2014.

The weekend is a marvelous opportunity, not just for MG owners, but for sports car enthusiasts of every mark (British, American, German, Italian, Japanese) to come together for sunny days, cool nights, and unique events. The fun begins on Friday with a scenic road tour from the Denver suburb of Arvada, touring through canyons and over mountain passes in the heart of the Rocky Mountains to the scenic resort town of Glenwood Springs. Added this year is a concurrent tour, the Western Slope Tour. Saturday's main event is the Rallye Glenwood Springs, a time-speed-distance rally to challenge both novice and experienced rallyists. Spend the day winding through the beautiful mountain valleys around Glenwood Springs. The weekend culminates with a social gathering Saturday night and the Car Show, Funkana, and Awards Presentation on Sunday.

Since its inception, the MGCC-RMC has sponsored the 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 (see photo below). The Rocky Mountains of central Colorado, with some of the most breathtaking scenery in America, formed the backdrop for the Rallye Glenwood Springs through 61 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-related 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.
