Description

In celebration of our 50th Anniversary, WPKN is proud to announce Road and Tracks II

On Saturday, September 28th, WPKN, (89.5 FM and www.wpkn.org) will present the second annual Road & Tracks celebration at Dragone Classic Motorcars, 176 Post Rd West in Westport, CT. This year, in addition to a celebration of the radio station’s 50th anniversary, held in a garage full of beautiful vintage automobiles, the event will also include a day-long, 150 mile Remarkable Radio Road Rally. Administered by a professional Rally Master, this will be a TSD (time, speed, distance) rally that will have up to one hundred vehicles vying to cover a multi-state course within a specified time frame.

The Rally will begin and end in Westport, and kicks off at 9:30 AM as part of a live broadcast of WPKN’s “The Car Bob Show”, featuring the station’s automotive experts. The course is approximately 140 miles long and will be using both paved and unpaved (non car breaking) roads. An awards ceremony follows the rally’s end at 4 PM, with trophies being awarded for several categories at Dragone’s showrooms.

Once the tire smoke clears, it’s on to the gala event, Road and Tracks II. Surrounded by collectible vintage and performance automobiles in the Dragone showroom and garage, the celebration, which begins at 7:30 PM, will feature live classic jazz, food provided by Nicholas Roberts, wine from Fountainhead Wine and Distillations, and Tito’s Handmade Vodka. Proceeds from this event will benefit WPKN radio, and also “KEYS: Kids Empowered by Your Support.”(www.keysmusic.org).
