FOR. What is Road & Tracks II ?.
The Remarkable Radio Road Rally
On Saturday, September 28th, WPKN , 89.5 FM and www.wpkn.org , will present the second annual “Road & Tracks” celebration at Dragone Classic Motorcars, a gallery full of beautiful vintage and performance automobiles in Westport, CT. This year, in addition to a celebration marking our 50th year of continuous broadcasting, the event will also include a day-long, 150 mile “Remarkable Radio Road Rally”.
The Remarkable Road Rally
Administered by a professional Rally Master, this will be a TSD (time, speed, distance) rally that will have up to one hundred vehicles vying to cover a multi-state course within a specified time frame.
The Remarkable Road Rally begins and end in Westport, and kicks off at 9:30 AM as part of a live broadcast of WPKN’s “The Car Bob Show”, featuring the station’s automotive experts. The course is approximately 150 miles long and will be using both paved and unpaved (non-car breaking) roads.
An awards ceremony follows the rally’s end at 4 PM, with trophies being awarded for several categories at Dragone’s gallery.
