What kind of road surface can be expected for the event? Is it mostly street or off road?

Mostly paved, a little bit of dirt.

It was planned & pre-driven using an early 70's BMW 2002 so anyone with reasonable suspension/mods should be just fine for this.

Thumbs up What's a Wounded Turkey have to do with rally? Come find out...

A few years ago when one of our Philly region members was inspired by some of the West Coast Grand Tour style rally events and wanted to grab a few of us and go for a driving weekend. A handful of us grabbed some camping gear and departed the Quakertown, PA early on Saturday. We crossed the Lehigh Valley, drove through the coal region, went through the Susquehanna Valley and spent the night in Wellsboro, PA (a town that loves rally). The crew spent the night tent camping and arose the next morning for the rally home. Both days were an incredible experience and a tradition was born. Since the 1st year was such a blast, we planned a trip for the following year. The route was tweaked a bit but the idea remained the: the joy of driving the open roads of PA.

This year the summer grand tours have gone legitimate under the revised social rally rules (no more time limit on the event). The Wounded Turkey and Homeward Bound Grand Tours will be June 28 and 29th. We'll be departing early on the 28th and arrive in Wellsboro, PA in time for recounting the day's events around dinner. We'll be back in the Philly area in the late afternoon of the 29th. This event has no tricks in the instructions. If you can read a Google map and can follow a state route, you will have fun. Most of the time you will see the car in front of you during the event (you won't get lost).
This tour has some serious seat time. You and your teammate had better get along and both of you should be able to drive the car you use. You will likely cover in excess of 500 miles over the weekend so you car had better be up to it as well. Most of the roads are paved but don't be surprised if there are a few dirt roads here and there. Nothing requiring a 450 whp Evo on gravel setup (but that would be cool anyway).

We've limited this event to just 10 teams as this is our first year running an event of this length so if you are interested, please PM me or email me at mbs.627@gmail.com before you register. As I write this today there are 6 open spots for the event.

There's no score in this rally, just smiles for miles. Everyone wins on a drive this fun. If you like back roads and have a weekend to kill, sign up.

Bumping to the top. Those of you that really want some seat time on some awesome roads should check out the Grand Tours next weekend.
