This rally will be open to Mercedes club members, their families, and friends.
It is not necessary to drive a Mercedes in the rally and each participating car must have at least a driver and a navigator.
Speed will NOT be a factor in this rally, in fact driving too fast will have a negative effect as the answers to questions will be missed.
Scoring will be on following the correct route and finding the answers to questions along the way.
BRING YOUR CAMERA AND ENJOY THE DAY AND THE SCENERY.
The more cars entered the more fun we will have.
No previous experience will be necessary to share in this day of fellowship with our friends and neighbors.
Rest stops and snacks will be available free at the mid-point of the rally with Pizza and sodas provided by the club at the end,
additional food and drink are on your own.
No sign-up is necessary, but we would appreciate notification of how many cars and persons to expect so we can be better prepared.
