Morrie’s Minnetonka Subaru Rally Fest | Ojibwe Forests Rally Kickoff

If you didn’t know that our very own Scott Putnam of Minnetonka Subaru was a rally co-driver of a 2013 Subaru WRX STI, maybe Travis Pastrana, David Higgins and Lauchlin O’Sullivan coming to town was a friendly reminder. The Subaru Rally Team USA drivers and crew stopped by our dealership to show off their amazing rally Subaru’s and mingle with some fans. It was a fun filled night that also played host to an all Subaru car show, and plenty of food and snacks for all. The best part, Travis, David & Lauchlin put down some lap times in Dirt 3 and had anyone who dared challenge them see if they could beat their best times! If you want to check out all these cars first hand running full-out in a rally event this weekend, head up to Detroit Lakes, MN for the Ojibwe Forests Rally! Check out the videos below for a recap of the event and an interview with Travis Pastrana!

Sure it’s great to take the kids to the Minnesota Zoo and watch them experience all the animals, but half the time they are just running away and you aren’t able to see anything for yourself. Well, now is your chance to see all the animals during adult night at the zoo. You can even grab a drink and some food while you’re there and experience a special keeper talk at 6:30 & 7:30 p.m. at the Lakeside Terrace about different animals.

#MorriesRoadTrip to Road America with Ben Wedge

I’m fairly certain that Morrie’s has written a few blogs about Road America and the surround area and rightfully so. Road America and the surrounding area are filled with motorsports history dating back to the first road race held on the village streets and surrounding roads in 1950. The on track action is golden; just search YouTube for “Road America Finish” and you’ll see what I mean. Recently the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar series showed up along with the Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge, Porsche GT3 Cup series and the Lamborghini Super Trofeo Series. Often called “America’s National Park of Speed”, Road America provides of the most scenic views of any racetrack.

What’s Going On – Week of 8/1/16

Victoria Classic Car Night – Wednesday, August 3rd

 victoria

This Wednesday night hundreds of classic cars will descend on downtown Victoria, Minnesota, for Victoria Classic Car Night. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again – this show is a great reason to get out during the middle of the week and see an eclectic mix of cars that you might not see at your typical show. It’s looking like it will be a hot one weather wise, so I recommend bringing a convertible.

Uptown Art Fair – Friday, August 5th through Sunday, August 7th

 uptown

If you’ve not made it out to an art festival this weekend you’re in luck. The Uptown Art Fair descends upon Minneapolis for three day of arts, crafts and food truck fare. If you’d rather not take your car, long board, bicycle or rollerblades (because these are staples of the adjacent Calhoun area, right?), Metro Transit is offering a free bus pass to the event. You can put your transit savings towards that new piece of art you’ve been lusting after…

 

Minnesota Fringe Festival – August 4th through August 14th

Every summer performing artists spanning a multitude of disciplines and genres descend upon Minneapolis for 11-days of performances as part of the Minnesota Fringe Festival. It’s kind of a big deal too, at least from a stats perspective, attaining the honor of being the largest non-juried festival in the nation. Touting over 895 performance there’s surely a number that tickle your fancy. And probably a few that don’t…

At MHCC we appreciate all machines that deliver exhilarating, visceral experiences. The M32 match races that descend upon Wayzata Bay this weekend as part of the Wayzata Sailing Expo deliver such an experience. You can catch the action all weekend long from the shores of Lake Minnetonka in downtown Wayzata. Better yet, our friend at Morrie’s Luxury Auto, the event sponsor, can probably hook you up with a ride on one of these incredible machines. Interested? Simply shoot us a note here.

 

August MNC&C – Saturday, August 6th

 mncandc

It’s hard to believe that it’s already August and that summer will soon be winding down. If you ask me that’s all the reason to make it out to MNC&C this Saturday. With beautiful weather on tap it’s bound to be a busy weekend. Better yet, two new RWB Porsches will be unveiled in in the courtyard alongside a number of other unique models from the storied German marque. Don’t know what a RWB is? You’ll just have to swing out this Saturday morning to find out.
