2018 Rocky Mountain Driving Experience (RMDE) at Estes Park, CO

August 22, 2018 at 7am to August 23, 2018 at 6pm
After the first RMAP board meeting of the year, It became clear that RMDE would need to be restructured to keep it financially viable. While the dates (August 22-23) remain in place, it appears the restructured RMDE 2018 will have to be focused on providing increased coverage of the latest cars, trucks and crossover SUVs at the event. The reason for this is car makers increased focus on return on investment with events like RMDE throughout the country. The RMAP board hopes to keep this on your…See More

May-June RMAP Update

As the end of May approaches, RMAP members are invited to attend the June 8-9 Mecum Auction at the Colorado Convention Center. Please RSVP  in the events section of the RMAP website and follow the link to apply for a press pass to the event. 

The RMAP board has continued working to plan the next Rocky Mountain Driving Event (RMDE) in August. The biggest topic of discussion is how to increase coverage of the cars brought in for RMDE. With that in mind, any RMAP member attending the August event will have to demonstrate coverage of either the cars being driven, or of the event itself. Links to articles, websites or blogs will be mandatory for 2018.  Without such coverage, car manufacturers will not continue supporting RMDE.

After much discussion, the RMAP BoD has elected to pursue planning for a two day event in August. Please look for RMDE updates posted on the RMAP website Events section.

Let's Have A Serious Conversation 1 Reply

As I am sent e-mail reminders to vote for the RMAP car of the year, I go over it and realize that I cannot truthfully, honestly, vote in a way that is fair and balanced. Why? Well, out of the total 54 rides listed, I have only driven 14 of them.…Continue

What is RMAP doing to grow? 2 Replies

So I guess this might be considered a call out to all involved, but as a member of three years, I am seeing a trend that concerns me.  We seem to be losing members, losing participation from manufacturers, and not recruiting writers of all caliber.…Continue
