2nd Annual Capitol Carrera

April 26, 2014 - April 27, 2014


Speed is not the Object, the Journey is the Challenge

The 2nd Annual Capitol Carrera is a touring rally organized by classic car enthusiasts and supporters of the California Automobile Museum. This year’s Capitol Carrera is a tribute to touring some of the beautiful countryside in Northern California and enjoying the company of classic car owners. This is the ONLY rally to benefit the California Automobile Museum’s mission to preserve, exhibit and teach the story of the automobile and its influence on our lives.

This is a FUN driving event for amazing cars and classic car lovin’ folks. There are no timed sections or first place trophy. Speed is not the object, the journey is the challenge.  You are guaranteed to see roads and places you have never been before as the route may include up to 500 miles of driving over two days.

2nd Annual Capitol Carrera Details and Qualifications:

  • You must drive a pre 1975 car. The Capitol Carrera committee will consider post 1975 special interest vehicles.  All entries must be approved by the Capitol Carrera committee.
