Colorado Rockies - Summer 2004

"A group of about a dozen county-wide Touareg Owners is organizing a
'Summer 2004 Colorado Rockies Touareg Ralley.' They are seeking a few
more serious signees in order to reach the pre-determined maximum group size of 15-18. The Ralley will be held Tuesday through Thursday of the weeks July 19-23rd or July 26-30th. Location will be in the San Juan Mountains of South-Central Colorado and will utilize what is known as the "Alpine Loop", a connecting series of Class I non-paved roads that cross 10,000 ft.
elevation several times. Accommodations will be booked in the area of Lake City, Silverton, Ouray, Durango & Telluride ... before, during and just after the event. Activities include to much to repeat here but, are shaping up to 'impressive.' To get your name on the list, contact:

I have talked to Robert from Motodyne. He has just finished his supercharged V8 Touareg and is interested in attending this event to unvail the the power of his Touareg (450hp......as much as the Cayanne!!!) He also has a few European tuner companies he works with that have built a Touareg for desert racing. They may also show interest in attending.

Hey guy

I have the optional 19" wheels with summer performance tires. Do you know if they can be used for this rally or should I change them over to all season tires.

thanks

I would not use those tires off road, although some mights. I would consider getting at least all weather or something more with a more off-road friendly tread.

I am going to be looking into getting some 16" steel wheel fabricated here in Colorado for my Touareg specifically for off-roading. When I get some more info on this wheel, I will post info to this forum.

I am looking into getting some professional off-road training before the event for anyone that is interested. It will probably focus on obstacle clearance, traction control technology/use and extraction techniques. Of course this is all subject to change until we actually book it.
Ideas?
