The 26th Annual Coulee Classic Rally
In celebration of the 108th anniversary of the founding of Alfa Romeo and perhaps more importantly, Alfa's return to the US market with the 4c followed by the Giulia and Stelvio, we invite you to join us for the 26th running of the Coulee Classic Rally. The Coulee will be an easy all-paved Monte Carlo style rally using the excellent sports car roads running through Wisconsin’s ultra-scenic coulee country. We'll give you the distance and the amount of time to get to the next checkpoint. The easy to follow instructions and timing at its most straightforward make this an excellent choice for those new to rallying while the roads are guaranteed to keep the most experienced rallyists entertained. Run it as a timed event or just ignore the timing and drive it as one of the best tours that you’ve driven. We guarantee that you’ll see roads that you never dreamed existed in the Upper Midwest. Your RSVP for one will cover both the driver and the navigator. Please Note: For those running the Coulee as a timed event, we require you to have a navigator to read the instructions, keep track of time, etc. While it is possible to run this event solo if you're not interested in being scored, for safety reasons, we still highly recommend running with a navigator. Meet at: Maiden Rock Village Park, on the shores of Lake Pepin in Maiden Rock, WI. Arrive early: The Smiling Pelican Bake Shop has a full line of breads and sweets – perfect for that mid-morning coffee and snack! Registration: 10:00 to 10:45 AM First Car Out: 11:01AM, First Car In: 4:46PM Ends with: Pizza at the Stone Barn, Nelson, WI. Cost: Pre-registration by 6/14: AROC members driving an Alfa: Free; Italian cars: $10; Others: $15. Day of the event: Italian cars: $15; Others: $20. Classes: Equipped (Rally computer, Programmable Odometer); Stock (Stock odo); and Novice (Stock odo) (Less than 4 timed rallies) in both Modern (1991-on) and Historic (All pre 1991 + Alfa Spiders thru 1994). You know that you're getting old when 1991 seems like just yesterday. :-) Rallymaster: Ed Solstad, home phone: (612) 822-0569 e-mail: RSVP at (One RSVP per car) or by email to by Wed., June, 21st. Presented by: The Stella del Nord Chapter of the Alfa Romeo Owners Club
