Continental Sponsors Porsche Parade Gimmick Rally

Continental Tire is the title sponsor of the Porsche Parade Gimmick Rally, one of the events during the weeklong Porsche Parade festivities in Charlotte.

The rally will start at Continental Tire North America’s, headquarters June 30 and run through the surrounding Piedmont area.

CTNA will host an opening breakfast event from 7:30 a.m. to noon that day, as well as offer free tire pressure checks, and a tech talk given by Joerg Burfien, director of research and development. The CTNA “Safely There” rig will also be on hand, where participants can enjoy a variety of interactive and virtual reality activities pertaining to driving safety, the company said.

Participants will be given turn-by-turn directions and a list of questions/clues pertaining to the route. The clues will be in the form of a pun and/or witticism. During the rally, participants will be able to choose from two routes. One route will have more questions/clues worth fewer points each; the other route will have fewer questions worth more, but will be tougher to solve. The team with the most points wins.
