Originally scheduled to run on Saturday August 4th, the DUST-OFF RALLY will be run on Sunday August 5th due to the likelihood of severe rain forecast for morning of the 4th.

Plan to arrive by about 9:30 a.m.  A drivers meeting will take place at 10:00 am with the first car off by about 10:20 a.m.  The driving event is a GTA style (Game Tour Adventure) rally designed to be a low pressure, fun driving tour.  Participants will follow a published route, answering a few questions whose answers will be found along the route.  Participating teams consist of a driver and a co-driver; navigator.  Driving distance will be approximately 73 miles.  There will be an opportunity to take a break approximately mid way along the route.

Participants will need to bring a clip board (route instructions are printed on 8-1/2 X 11 inch paper) pens or pencils and some way of keeping track of the time of day and cumulative miles driven.

The American British Reliability Run……..

Here’s a chance to take part in a driving event that will put you and your car to the test.  Blake Discher of the Detroit Triumph Sportscar Club founded America’s British Reliability Run in 2002. The idea is spreading throughout the USA and so far has raised more than $215,000 for worthy children’s charities.

……..comes to Connecticut……..

The CT Triumph Register and the CT MG Club are staging the first CT British Reliability Run, on September 14-16, 2018. The goal is to field 24 British cars/teams and raise funds for The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp. The event is not a race or a road rally, there are no checkpoints or time/speed/distance parameters. It is something of an endurance test, intended to be challenging but fun for the participants. The event will begin in CT and run through the Adirondack Park over the weekend before returning to CT. It will be a great fall drive covering around 600 miles through beautiful countryside in the company of fellow British car friends.

………..to help children and families in need.

The only competition is how much each CT Reliability Run team can raise from friends, family or colleagues for the chosen charity: The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp, founded by Paul Newman. This organization is dedicated to providing “a different kind of healing” to seriously ill children and their families throughout the northeast, free of charge.  The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp’s website is at https://www.holeinthewallgang.org/

Are you and your car up to the challenge?

You can learn more about the history of British Reliability runs by visiting the event website at http://www.ctbrr.org If you are interested in registration details or have any questions, please send an email to nwardle2@comcast.net. We hope to see you on the road!
