|ABOUT THE RALLY|
The Florida’s 300 Mile Car Rally/Tour is three days on Florida’s back roads with prizes and trophies! This is a PRECISION rally, NOT A SPEED rally. It is how exact you get there, not how fast! It is not just a RALLY, it is also a ROAD TRIP, which means that there will be many SOCIAL / FAMILY activities incorporated into the route. Don't worry, there will be a Rally School presented for those first timers not familiar with the rules!
The Rally will take you on a round trip from Miami thru various Florida cities before returning you back to Miami. Classic car drivers, their navigators, and their guests, will follow a step-by-step route, visiting new places and enjoying scenic landscapes. The course will stop at different social / family events designed to enhance the enjoyment and excitement of the rally. Most of all, you will share an unforgettable experience among friends, old and new!
Our Thunderbird Club founder, Felipe Cos, had a passion for Precision Rallies, he just loved them! He was always participating in some type of Rally, from a 1 day local 50 mile Rally to a multi-week 5,000 mile cross-country adventure. He believed that everyone should have the same opportunities to experience that which he loved so much and gave him so much pleasure That, was the inspiration which led him to create the Florida's 300-Mile Rally, which became the first precision rally in the Southeast U.S. He thought that this would be a great first step in training participants for the "ultimate" Rally, one in which he had participated multiple times, the GREAT RACE. [[The Great Race is the oldest time-precision rally in the U.S. with prizes over $350,000.00; 4,500 miles in 14 days from coast to coast]
The Rally & Road Trip is an event where a bunch of old and new friends get together and travel various locations within, Florida to attend some fun event and enjoy the social interaction of each other's company. We have made arrangements with the hotels and restaurants for group discounts and reserved rooms. The registration for this event covers the group cost of some of the activities. Depending on the event, you may have to register individually for some activity. We hope that our efforts will make for a fun and enjoyable time for you, while saving you some expense as compared to you making your own arrangements. By registering for this event, you are releasing the organizers, volunteers, and vendors from any and all liability stemming from any problems that may arise as a result of the trip. In other words, you are solely responsible for your participation in this trip and we (Thunderbird Club) are just volunteering to do the group leg-work for you so that you can enjoy the resulting discounts.
