Village Voice Auto Rally Sunday
Airdate: Wednesday - July 10, 1957


Last Update: 12-07-2008

Show Description
An impressive galaxy of foreign and American sports cars will line up this Sunday, July 14, at 12:30 p.m., to vie for prizes in Greenwich Village's first auto rally. The cars will assemble on Washington Place, just off the Square, under the direction of Rally Steward Jean Shepherd. The Village Voice is sponsoring this unusual event which emphasizes adherence to traffic regulations, rather than speed. The entries thus far include at least one each of the following: Citroen, Hillman, Austin-Healey, MG, Jaguar, Skoda, Thunderbird, Corvette, Isetta, and Volkswagen. Each of the drivers will receive a route sheet one minute before take-off. There will be three check-points along the way at which they will have to stop. Beside prizes to the three top winners, an added award will go to the driver who returns to the finish line with the best poker hand. A playing card will be given to the participants at the start and finish, as well as at each of the check-points. The driver who ends up with the high hand will be awarded a case of world-famous Heineken's imported Holland beer, donated by The Village Voice...
