October 01, 2020 - October 04, 2020 - 2020 Type 3 Rally
Cayucos, California
Facebook Twitter
It’s time to start preparing for the 2020 Type 3 Rally! This will be the fourth California Central Coast Type 3-only driving event, and once again we’re planning to base operations around the historic Borradori Garage overlooking the ocean in Cayucos, one of the last unspoiled beach towns in California. Enjoy an epic weekend with Type 3 enthusiasts from all over California and beyond!

As with the last three Central Coast rallies, all Type 3s are welcome to attend — ’61–’73, stock or custom, restored cars or daily drivers. We’d love to see everything from Notchbacks, Squarebacks, Fastbacks and Type 34s to Brazilian Type 3s and Type 3-based buggies, specials and ratrods — anything Type 3 is welcome! There’s no cost to participate in the event other than gas, food and accommodations.
