The Sun Valley Road Rally is a one-of-a-kind experience, allowing automobile enthusiasts to push their car and their driving skills to the limits on a public highway in the incredible Sawtooth National Forest, just a few miles north of the Sun Valley Resort.
Car owners from all over the world bring their cars to the event to test their top speeds on the closed highway in front of hundreds of spectators. The top speed reached in last year’s event was 230 mph by a Bugatti Veyron, and the course yielded 13 additional runs exceeding 200 mph. Cars participating in the Rally vary from vintage to supercars, and drivers may take up to 5 runs on the course.
All proceeds from the event go directly to The Drug Coalition, a non-profit organization dedicated to reducing substance use by young people in Blaine County. The Drug Coalition utilizes environmental policies and innovative programming to decrease access to substances and empower young people to lead happy and healthy lives.
This year, the Sun Valley Road Rally will take place on July 25th and 26th. For more information, please visit www.sunvalleyroadrally.com
