For the past two years, my father and I have been going to a road rally hosted by our Porsche dealer(Newtown Square, PA). While the majority of vehicles(usually ~60 come out) may be Porsche's, we have had plenty of non Porsche exotics, including: various Lambos, Ferraris, and one R8. This past year, a Carrera GT came out; made everyone look bad.

I'd personally love to see some GTR's come out, which why I'm reaching out to this forum. I have always been a GTR fan at heart, and Nissan's latest installment only makes me that much more.

The rally is held at this dealer: http://www.porscheofthemainline.com/?gclid=CPfaqdK4qqwCFQM75QodFHMY1w

It usually starts ~9:30am and the course is around 95 miles long. The area is surrounded by beautiful back roads and awesome scenery.

I'm not sure when the exact date is, but it typically starts close to the beginning of summer(i'll get the exact date when it gets closer).

I will post more info about the actual course and agenda if people seem interested.

Feel free to ask any questions.

PS- Wasn't sure where to post this, I hope this is the right section.

Wow 95miles of beautiful back roads in a GTR sounds like a dream....
Well, it's nice in a Porsche too...


I will admit, if a few GTR's come out, I will be tempted to go for a little ride(as any 19 year old would).-it will be my first GTR.

So here's a really sloppy job of me explaining things:

1. Meet at dealer with co pilot(i believe it's $40 per person- this is including breakfast and lunch at fancy restaurant). You line up on the dealer parking lot, and you are given a number, 1-60.

2. Head into showroom, and take some time to eat breakfast- sponsored by Panera Bread.

3. Head of the dealer goes over rules for newbies.

4. You have time to check out all the other vehicles in the line up.

5. Get back in cars.

6. You are given first set of directions, with miles markers.

7. Cars start to take off(each car is staggered by 1 min or so, so you cant just follow someone).

8. After you meet all 3 checkpoints, you end up at a nice restaurant for lunch.

9. Salesmen tally up points(not sure how they do it) and award prizes. First prize is worth ~$1000 in goodies.

I'm sure i'm missing things, but everything else will be explained very well the day of the rally.

Just to add a few more things:

There is a 1st, 2nd and 3rd place. Scoring is based on drive time, odometer reading, and correct answers-these are to questions found on the directions sheet. The questions have to do with scenery along the rally(ex. what does Joe's farm sell?) and various car knowledge questions. This keeps the driver and the co pilot on their toes.

A little of topic here(don't want to make more threads), but do any of you guys go to the Philly auto shows?

If so, has anyone attended the Black Tie Tailgate?

I had the misfortune of going with some buddies to the show on the day kids wen't free. I enjoyed getting crumbs thrown at me while I sat in a Z06. :(
