Once we receive and only when we receive your permission, we'll send an email to like-minded rally members. We will not share names, emails, or phone numbers without your permission out of respect for your privacy.

Every participant is required to have their cars properly insured according to the laws of the state and/or country of the car’s registration. Please note that some insurance policies may have limitations on mileage or restrict coverage when your car is not parked in a secured garage overnight, driven in road rallies, or while in transit. We recommend that you verify that your car will be covered for a more than 1,000 mile organized multi-day rally event that involves hotel parking lots and commercial shipping. If you need insurance or have questions regarding coverage, our insurance sponsor, Mal Maloney (Hagerty), can assist. Mal can be reached at mobile: 206.295.4877 office: 231.252.8797 or at email@example.com.
SUGGESTED AUTOMOBILE SPARES
A 300 SL specific spares kit list will be supplied to all participants. Individual items and complete kits will be available through the Mercedes-Benz Classic Center and the Gull Wing Group club store. Having a few simple spares can mean the difference between a minor setback and the end of the rally.
A 300 SL specific safety and mechanical pre-rally check list will be supplied to each participant and will be required to be completed and received by October 1, 2023. A well prepared car is your best bet to fully experience the rally and your best way to minimize your opportunity cost.
