Forest Road


I've always been a car lover but have never fully immersed myself in the car club scene, nor participated in a car rally.   


In 2021, when the opportunity to participate in the Lap the Lake rally presented itself, I jumped at the chance.  It was positioned as a casual event, for car lovers wanting to navigate the less-traveled roads of the Wisconsin and Michigan, and that all appealed to me. 


I had expectations that it would be entertaining and enjoyable... but it ended up being a BLAST!  The selected route allowed drivers to take in the landscape, other rally-goers were friendly and fun, and my old British car made it without a hiccup.  It all greatly exceeded my expectations and I can't wait to do it again in 2022!
