  • Great American Mountain Rally Revival - Stowe Vermont Sept 13-15th 2021

    Hello:

    I'd like to invite you to our 3rd Great American Mountain Rally Revival this September.

    Following is some info on the event as well as links to more information and registration.

    GAMRR 2021 - SEPTEMBER 13TH, 14TH, 15TH - STOWE
    VERMONT

    Registration in open May 1!
    History of the

    Original
    Great
    American
    Mountain
    Rallye 1953-1957

    The flag dropped on the very first GAMR on Thanksgiving Day of 1953 and the rally continued every November through 1957. Described in the April 1956 issue of Auto Age as “America’s longest, toughest, and coldest rallye,” the races attracted driving teams from across America, Europe and
    Scandinavia. Conducted the weekend of American Thanksgiving, the rally typically featured challenging snowy weather through New York’s Adirondack, New Hampshire’s White, and Vermont’s
    Green Mountains. Tire chains were an absolute must!


    In its day, the Great American Mountain Rallye attracted top teams from around the world. The Rootes team entered Sheila van Damm in 1953 and 1954. The late great Stirling Moss also competed in this rally in 1954. The great Maurice Gastonides, the 1953 Monte Carlo Rally winner, was a competitor as well. One year, multi-time world driving champion, Juan Manual Fangio was the official starter.
    GAMRR is a Hybrid rally incorporating a “Tour” with a Regularity Rally. There will be a course to follow through northern Vermont and parts of
    New York utilizing a Tulip style of instructions and a short map reading section. The event follows parts of the routes from the original events of the 50’s. The Rally with include approximately 400 miles of incredible
    Vermont and NY roads over 3 days. This event will allow you to interact with other entrants during the day’s competition and afterwards to share stories at the bar.


    GAMRR is similar to the Monte Carlo Historique, which has 300 + cars driving around southern
    France over 5 days; many 'cool' cars with drivers who want to enjoy the idea that they are in a competition, even though they may not be overly concerned with winning. Hagerty will be providing a free weekend of towing for entrants.


    We want to maintain the flavor of the original rally and thus we will be limiting the rally technology that can be used by contestants. In theory if the technology did not exist in the 1950’s or early 1960’s it is not allowed (with a few exceptions).

    As we enter the third year of this revival rally (after our break from Covid last year), we are incorporating “lessons learned” during the first two years.

    We are dedicated to keeping this event in the spirit of the original events of the 50’s with just a touch of modern-day conveniences.

    We hope you can join us for three fantastic days of rallying in beautiful Stowe
    Vermont at our host inn The Trapp Family Lodge.
