The 6th Annual Sun Valley Tour de Force on July 20-22, 2023 is a weekend of epic proportions for car lovers of all ages. Eight events take place over the course of three days. The signature event of the weekend is the ‘NO SPEED LIMIT’ high speed runs at Phantom Hill. Located in the heart of the Sawtooth National Recreation Area, 3.2 miles of state highway becomes a no-speed limit zone. For one day only, drivers are allowed to put their machines to the ultimate test. In 2019, all previously recorded speed records were broken when a Bugatti Chiron hit 253.01mph. This is truly an experience of a lifetime. Additional weekend events include scenic drives, SVTdF Car Show at Festival Meadows, hosted sponsor events and our fundraiser; Cars & Comedy. With the stunning backdrop of Sun Valley, Idaho, this is a weekend not to be missed.
The SVTdF Car Show is a highly anticipated event with supercars, classics, and collectibles on display. Both participants of the SVTdF high-speed event as well as any proud collector are welcome to participate. Approximately 150 cars are invited to enter the Show. This event offers a chance for spectators to check out sponsor cars, purchase SVTdF merchandise, and enjoy local food and beverage specialties. Guests will be entertained with commentary from Peter Bush, veteran radio personality, and SVTdF friend Max Monahan.
Sun Valley Tour de Force, a non-profit raising funds for The Hunger Coalition, is three days of events for car enthusiasts, sponsors, and guests. Weekend highlights include runs on a state highway with no speed limit, with cars reaching well over 200mph. Open to the public, the Friday SVTdF Car Show hosts supercars, classics, and the latest models on display. Guests also enjoy the scenic Huckleberry Drive from Ketchum to Smiley Creek Lodge, hosted sponsor events, test drives, and Cars & Comedy, the chief fundraising event of the weekend.
