You’ve got the classic European car. You’ve spent endless hours and dollars getting it to a point where you’re proud of it’s cosmetic and mechanical prowess. Now what? Coffee & Classics? Putter around town on a sunny Saturday? Sure. But deep down you’ve always thought about what it would be like to drive it as it was meant. Enter the Fuelfed MotorGearo 250.

The Fuelfed MotorGearo 250 is our vintage European road rally held June 2-3, 2017. This is a curated driving event for small displacement vehicles running over two days from New Glarus to Prairie du Chien, WI. Eight well sorted stages of varying topographical road courses are designed to give smaller vehicles a great driving experience.

The Fuelfed MG250 combines vintage European cars and motorcycles. The MG250 is limited to twenty cars (3.5 liters and under manufactured prior to 1990( and 20 motorcycles (1000cc and under prior to 1978). 40 vehicles total.

We will curate the entrant vehicles based on varied criteria, but over all, on unique diversity. We want everyone to be excited they are driving/riding with other smaller classics they would otherwise never have an opportunity to experience on the open road.

The MG250 is a drive at your own pace event and not a time-speed-distance-trial. So there is no pressure to go fast or drive beyond your comfort level and is suitable for the novice. This not a guided tour either. You will be given a turn by turn map/directions to navigate. Two vehicles in each car group will have GPS’s with routes loaded. Motorcycles will have turn by turn maps/directions. Your goal is to have fun be on time for lunch and finish line receptions each day.

Each stage is carefully routed to provide different challenges and a great diving cadence. Each stage takes roughly 60 to 90 minutes to complete with 30 minute rest / refuel / hydrate. The beautifully quaint small town lunch locations separate the days four stages. Friday & Saturday will run completely different routes.

There will be chase vehicles in case of breakdowns and workers at every stage to guide drivers/riders.

Friday starts around the village square in New Glarus and finishes at a supper club along the river in PDC with a cocktail & refreshment reception. Dinner to follow. Shuttle to/from dinner & hotels provided, if needed.
