Frequently Asked Questions

Is this a road race?

NO! This is NOT A ROAD RACE.  The Lap The Lake Rally Presented By HAGERTY is a casual road rally. What is the difference? A race is a timed competition where the winner is determined by the fastest time.  A road rally has a pre-determined time for each leg (calculated based on the distance and the LEGAL speed limit), teams are assigned target check in times each day, the goal is to be as close to the target time as possible, which encourages teams to follow all speed and other road regulations.

What type of vehicles are allowed?

If it moves and its street legal, bring it! Classic Cars, Motorcycles, Supercars, Family Wagons, Convertibles, Sedans, Trailer Queens, and Rust Buckets. Come one come all for the most fun road rally of them all!

Is the entry fee per car or per person?

Entry fee/ticket is PER CAR, not per person. Only one entry per car is required regardless of the number of passengers.

What does the entry fee cover?

One Entry Covers: Entry fee for 1 vehicle, 2 shirts, sponsored swag bag, daily events (drag strip fees, etc), support vehicle costs, and administration fees.  It does not include hotel expenses, fuel, national park fees (if any), food & beverage.  We are priced significantly less than any other professionally organized 5 day road rally, our goal is to make this event as affordable as possible while still covering the expenses needed to produce it like advertising, staffing, print & production costs, administration, website fees, etc.

How long are we driving each day?

Each day's drive will take place along a predetermined route, actual driving time will range from 3.5-5 hours each day depending on the leg.  Each day has additional check-ins or activities that will take up additional time, but are not factored as "driving time" as they typically require you to go stretch your legs a bit.

What kind of car do I need?

The best car to drive is the one you have!  All safe and road legal cars are allowed to enter the rally, while we encourage you to participate with your classic, we won't turn away more modern whips.

Where do I stay each night?

We are working with hotels in at each stopping city to coordinate room availability and special group rates.  Our target room rate is $70-100 each night.

How are you handling COVID-19?

Obviously the local and federal regulations around COVID are constantly changing.  For now we are planning on operating the event in compliance with all local regulations as of Feb 2021. As we get closer to the event if these regulations change we will update our plans accordingly.

The Short Answer:

  • No Indoor Gatherings

  • Driver's Meeting & Daily Starts will follow all social distancing regulations and will require masks.

  • As of 2/8/2021 we are not planning on any group dinners or evening events. We will re-evaluate this as we get closer to the start.

  • All Starts, Checkpoints, and Finish times will be captured digitally.
