Put down that exotic car magazine – perhaps the only other place where you can see many of the world’s most thrilling cars in one place – and don’t miss this rare chance to see Bugattis, Ferraris, Lamborghinis and other super cars in person.
The fifth annual Goldrush Rally, a luxury lifestyle event featuring nearly 60 of the world’s top sports cars and luxury automobiles, will roll in at about 6 p.m. on Sunday, June 9, at the Fairmont Miramar Hotel & Bungalows in Santa Monica. The parade of cars will arrive from about 6 p.m. to 7 p.m.
The weeklong rally kicks off the night before in San Francisco and will make stops in Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Dallas, Memphis and St. Louis, before completing the open-road journey in Chicago. To the average Joe and Jane, the cost to participate in the rally can seem nearly as steep as the price tags of the cars featured in the exclusive event. But the opportunity to watch these super cars snake down Wilshire Boulevard after roaring south all day on California’s highways is priceless — and free.
The same cars will head out of the hotel at about 7:30 a.m. on Monday, June 10, en route to Las Vegas. The rally will stops various race tracks across the country, where the drivers get the chance to push the cars to the limit in head-to-head races.
Follow Goldrush Rally on Facebook for live photo updates of the weeklong, cross-country journey.
