Watch for dates for the 4th Annual "Rallye for a Cure"
Spring 2016

Great News!
Jaguar Hartford has once again signed on to be a Platinum Sponsor and starting location for the 2016 "Rallye for a Cure!"

Our three years,we raised over
$30,000 to benefit 
Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation!


The "Rallye for a Cure" is a grassroots event whose mission it is
to celebrate classic and vintage sports cars and their enthusiasts,
while raising awareness and funds to benefit
JDRF's mission to treat, prevent, and cure Type 1 Diabetes.

The Rallye invites all car enthusiasts to participate in a fun-filled day for the entire family! Owners of vintage, classic, sports, and modern cars are all invited to join in the fun of this Game-Tour-Adventure (GTA) Rallye. Each Rallye team consists of a driver and a navigator in one car. During the drive, navigators will be asked to record information about the route in the style of a "scavenger hunt," making the Rallye fun for all ages. The Rallye welcomes drivers and navigators of all experiences and family members of all ages. 

The Rallye will begin at Jaguar Hartford in Hartford, CT. Enjoy a complimentary breakfast, courtesy of Jaguar Hartford. Come view the cars, talk to other car lovers, and bid on some exciting auction items (preview these items, as they come in, on the Awards and Auction Items link on this site). 

100% of all funds raised from this event benefit JDRF (Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation) and its mission to prevent, treat, and cure Type 1 Diabetes. The registration fee is tax-deductible. 

Individual team registration is $100.00 per vehicle (two-member teams).
