SPRING THING RALLY & DRIVE
APRIL 26th 2014 at 8:30am
The trees are sprouting baby leaves, song birds are exploring bird houses and the butter in the cupboard stays soft enough to spread without putting it in the microwave, once again spring time has arrived. As sure as the arrival of baby leaves, song birds and soft butter comes the “Spring Thing Rally”. No, wait it’s the “Spring Thing” ….ahhh ….”Rally & Drive”. Yup I’ve got it right “Rally & Drive”. Only the name has changed. Like in the past the Spring Thing will be a timed gimmick rally.
This year, as last year, JDRC/NWA is partnering with Jaguar Land Rover of Tacoma on the year’s opening driving event. Joe Corrado, Jaguar Land Rover of Tacoma’s General Manager, has been bitten by the spring fever bug and he has upped his involvement in the event. The 2014 “Spring Thing Rally & Drive” is going to be bigger and more fun than ever. We will assemble at Jaguar of Tacoma for a catered breakfast in their show room. After breakfast cars will be lined up and sent out at one minute intervals. Next you will have a leisurely drive on back roads following the rally instructions through our NW’s forest and farm country. We’ll arrive at the finish line for a catered lunch and be serenaded by Ron Wiley’s musical group.
The finish line will be at the Hydroplane and Raceboat Museum!
The Hydroplane and Raceboat Museum is the nation’s only museum dedicated solely to powerboat racing. If you’ve ever watched the Seafair Hydro Races on Lake Washington, and who hasn’t, you won’t want to pass up this historic venue. Many of the vintage hydroplanes from the good old days have been restored and are on display. The era of twelve cylinder aircraft engine powered thunder boats are well represented on the floor by two Miss Budweisers, Miss Atlas Van Lines, two Miss Bardahls and Miss Oberto. Tempo VI is there too. She was the first true hydroplane. Gar Wood won the 1918 Gold Cup in Miss Detroit III. She is powered by a rare 1916 Curtiss V-12 aircraft engine and is on display in concours condition.
In 1950 Seattle engineer, Ted Jones, revolutionized the hydroplane sport by designing the Slo-Mo IV. Later he designed a faster boat named Slo-Mo V which did a widely photographed flip in 1955. Slo-Mo V is totally restored and on the museum floor. I have mentioned only a small portion of the exhibits.
We will also be able to tour the restoration shop where another Miss Bardahl and Bill Muncey’s last ride, Miss Van Lines is being restored.
Change the oil, blow up the tires, put on those new license tabs and plan to join the fun at Jaguar of Tacoma Saturday, April 26th for the “Spring Thing Rally & Drive”.
