Tally Ho Rally
Sponsored by the Vintage MG Car Club of Chicago
Sunday, July 10, 2011

fox The rally route is designed to provide a fun experience, with scenic and very low traffic MG roads, taking you past open fields, horse pastures, some amazing homes, and lovely gardens and landscaping.

The starting point is again the parking lot of the Millrose Restaurant, 45 S. Barrington Rd, which is just north of the I-90 Barrington Rd exit. The restaurant had a nice Breakfast Buffet that opens at 10:00 am.

The rally end point is within 45 miles of the start and the rally length is less than 95 miles. Your rally car is an MG T Series or other MG, any vintage sports car or anything else you have running and the Rally fee is $5.
