THIEL Audio is proud to sponsor the 2016 Cannonball Run Rally.
In 1914 Erwin “Cannonball” Baker set the first cross country record on his Indian Motorcycle accomplishing his trans continental trip in 11 days. Soon after he would switch from motorcycles to automobiles and in 1933 he set a record traveling from New York to Los Angeles in a Graham-Page Model 57 Blue Streak 8, the drive became known as the “Cannonball Run” and thus gave birth to the car rally.
After recently surpassing their centennial milestone, Cannonball Run is currently the oldest rally in existence. Thus, in the true spirit of Erwin “Cannonball” Baker , we intend on carrying on a tradition that still resonates with so many enthusiasts, and many to come. Cannonball Run Rally (CBRR) will separate itself from the rest by fully embracing a true customer satisfaction ideology. With over 48 years of combined rally experience, the CBRR collective will carry on the spirit of the legend in a rally format and be a truly unique experience in itself.
Our launch party will be reminiscent of a 1940’s “house party”, thrown in the true spirit of racing. The backdrop starts with a mansion built in 1893 and will include dinner and an evening filled with live entertainment, beverages of the adult nature, and everything else the venue has to offer, at our disposal. The Wheatleigh will set the bar for what will be a week to remember.
FINISH LINE HAVANA CUBA
We will be the first rally to host its closing party in Havana which brings full circle to our theme of Gentleman Rallying at its best. Private transportation will take us to Cuba where we will host a party that you can only experience in this part of the world. With two days at our amazing resort your starting the second part of the rally with multiple events planned that will bring our weeklong adventure to an unforgettable close.
WHAT WE STAND FOR
We are a collective of like-minded individuals that want to drive unknown open roads, explore new cities and destinations and share this amongst other Cannonballers. We believe in a notion that all cars and their drivers are created equal, and therefore we exemplify camaraderie to all. We embrace individuality, embody the movement that Erwin started, and now we will carry the torch.
