THE GREAT PUMPKIN RALLY -- 27 October 2012
We had two Mazdas enter our rally late last month; one of them took First Overall!
The fifth event in our championship series will begin at Fiat of McKinney, and end at the Festival of Pumpkins in Paris, Texas. This will be a fun drive in the country, with some light-hearted competition along the way. This road rally event, run at legal speeds in your own car, will not get you lost, but will show you some pretty roads in North Texas counties that you may not have known about. Just bring yourself, a partner to drive or navigate, a full tank of gas, and a pencil.
You are invited to partake of the festivities and fun at the end in Paris.
Online registration at MotorsportReg.com is required, because you will be mailed the rally rules a few days before the event.
