The Uncompahgre Plateau

Motor along one of America’s most scenic byways, the Unaweep-Tabeguache, for the Gateway Road Rally!

Enjoy a little competition as you drive along this picturesque, jagged and marvel of a 240-mile loop, called the Million Dollar Highway. The Autumn Classic Rally Master sets a time-to-match and the Rally participant with the time closest to our Rally Master’s secret time wins the grand prize! The Rally Master could stop for gas, stop to take photos of all the great scenery, stop for a brief snack or a long lunch – their time is a mystery until the announcement of the winner.

This event is available to all 4-day and 4-day VIP ticket holders.
The Process:
  • The Autumn Classic Rally Master (whose identity is secret to all!) drives the loop along the scenic byway to Gateway and back to establish a time for the Rally participants to match.
  • The Rally participants drive the same route the Rally Master drives
  • The journey begins at the Autumn Classic Lounge during the Morning Revv event on Friday, between 9-10am.
  • All participants must “punch” the Rally timecard to note their start time before heading out
  • All Road Rally participants must return to the Telluride Regional Airport by 4p to “punch” the Rally timecard to note their return time.
  • The Autumn Classic team will collect the odometer at the start and finish to make sure you enjoyed the entire loop
  • Please note, no other time, speed or destination restrictions are applicable.
The Journey:
  • Start your engines, the 204-mile  out and back journey starts at the Autumn Classic Lounge
  • From Mountain Village Blvd travel highway 145 along the San Miguel River through Placerville before turning left onto Hwy 141 towards Norwood
  • Continue through Norwood, Redvale and Naturita, joining the winding Dolores River as it passes historic landmarks such as the abandoned uranium mining town of Uravan and the engineering marvel ‘Hanging Flume’, clinging perilously to the sheer red cliffs above the Dolores River.
  • Continue on Highway 141 to Gateway, Colorado and the Gateway Auto Museum
  • Show your 4 Day Telluride Autumn Classic Pass at the museum for complimentary admission and enjoy the great cars on display
  • Make sure to check back in at the Telluride Airport before 4 PM to be eligible for contest prizes!
