Fuelfed MotorGearo 250 is a drive at your own pace vintage European car event. It is not a time-speed-distance trial or a guided tour. There is no pressure to go fast or drive beyond your comfort level. Your goal is to have fun, be on time for lunch, and finish in time for dinner each day.
We recommend arriving the evening of Thursday, June 2, to relax & mix before the event and staying overnight Saturday, June 4, to celebrate.
The MG250 begins Friday morning in Dubuque, Iowa. You will be given a driver’s packet with an overview map. One lead vehicle in each car group will have a GPS with routes loaded. We’ve mapped routes for both days taking you through the countryside and over a variety of topography for a great driving experience.
At our lunch stops you’ll experience small town hospitality.
Friday afternoon MG250 participants will start arriving mid/late afternoon in Prairie du Chien. You’ll park at your hotel and make your way to the bar for some refreshments.
Dinner will be at a local supper club at 7:30pm, but show up early and enjoy a cocktail and conversation with your fellow road warriors.
Saturday morning we’ll depart from a location to be named. Same drill exiting for New Glarus as the day before — early morning check in and depart at regular intervals. You’ll drive a different route back to with a lunch stop in another quaint small town on the way to New Glarus.
Saturday late afternoon and evening mark the end of the MotorGearo with a Dirty Concours in the parking lot at Chalet Landhaus where our group will be staying. The MG250 will close the event with a private celebratory dinner.
Meals: Attendees may opt to have any of their meals as take out if they would prefer not to eat with the group. Ask us if you want more information about the restaurant situation.
Hotels: Participants are responsible for booking their own rooms. For your convenience, Fuelfed has arranged special pricing and blocks of rooms. Hotel information will be sent to you after registering.
THE EVENT RUNS RAIN OR SHINE.
