2012 or maybe a later year

Unread post by MajMotorsports » Fri Jul 22, 2011 9:02 am

I know yall just finish 2011 Rally yesterday.


Just throwing this idea out there. What about doing a Rally that connects with the chesapeake bay bridge-tunnel? Its a pretty cool ride that is about 15-20 miles long has a couple of places to stop and checkout. Its cost $12/15 to be on it.

I could see something were we cruise along the coast line. Take the bridges and ferries across channels like from Knotts Island in NC or down around outer banks. The only thing with that it would have to be during the off seasons or we will be paying big money for hotels.

Maybe throw in RIR(Richmond International Raceway) then back to the coast and then Darlington again and back too the coast and then Daytona something like that :giggle:

there is supposed to be a highway that follows the West Coast, supposely an amazing ride, i think its called Highway 1 or California Route 1

US 50 is supposely another good ride, its starts in Ocean City Maryland and ends in West Sacremento Cali

Or maybe a deep south tour? Tennessee (Bristol), Georgia (Road Atlanta, Roebling Road), Alabama (Talladega), Florida (Sebring, Homestead, Daytona, Palm Beach International Raceway (PBIR)) plus coast line, the Keyes etc. Good mix of mountain, highway, and beaches.

Could to a Mississippi river run, on or off of it. Somewhere north, maybe detour through Nashville, end it in New Orleans. Rally the River 2012, LOL

I like the idea of another southern Rally, cause we just don't have anything like this round here!! I'm sure my co-driver could help with a hook up to the Michelin prooving grounds & test track in Laurens, SC. Then there is Road Atlanta for a great road course track also. The Rally on teh River is a cool idea also.

I just have one little request. I would love to see a bit of road course action in there somewhere. Other than that, I don't care where it is. Of course I would like to see it on this side of the Mississippi, but I understand being fair to everyone when it comes to distance traveled. It is hard to beat some good mountain roads in the WV/PA/Tennessee areas though. I know after last week, one of the most talked about roads was Rt. 9 with all of the switch backs. Seemed many enjoyed that.

I like Hopps and 888's ideas, With the runs south to Florida. I like Dale's idea of Northern PA and NY. I only wish for one thing.....not in the midst of the heat of summer :) I was personally thinking about putting together more of a short cruise, as opposed to a rally on the OBX. We would just have to be careful as to how many cars we had due to limitations with the ferries. Definitely an off season run.

I'd love to get a rally going for Colorado to maybe Las Vegas. Lots of cool stuff to see along the way (Pike's Peak, Blackhawk, Vail, Colorado National Monument, Moab, Arches national park, Garden of the Gods, Stanley Hotel, the Airforce Academy, Bandimere Speedway, etc)

Something in the Midwest would be cool, since I haven't driven west of the Mississippi, and have only flown past it once. Gotta start saving up for it now, wherever it is.

A 9/11 ride? DC/NY and PA to all the memorials would be nice. The NY part would be a nightmare most likely.

not a bad idea, but I personally not a fan of driving in NYC. No matter where you go - NYC, DC, PA - most likely everyplace will be mobbed that day/weekend

Also there is another group doing a 9/11 run, i saw the event posted on the TeamShelby Forums, but i cant find it at this moment

Anywhere near NYC is out and NJ or other congested area's like Philly, Boston, or DC. We all like driving but NO ONE likes traffic Jams.
