The Fuelfed MotorGearo Rally is One Week Out

May 22, 2018

.

Our third annual Fuelfed MotorGearo 250 vintage rally is now full and drivers are making final preparations to their classics. We’re excited to have another great curated line-up of cars running this year. For 2018 we have several rally veterans driving from as far a Colorado.

This year we’re seeing an uptick in British metal and downturn in German cars applying. The Italian mix has been consistent since the event inception. But everyone is well covered by the great job Hagerty does as one of our Vehicle Support Team.

We can smell the flourocarbons, cigars and cow pies already!
