Dear MAMA Media Member:

We cordially invite you to attend the 2023 Midwest Automotive Media Association Spring Rally taking place from May 23 to May 25. Help us celebrate 31 years of MAMA! Below are some important notes to help you plan your travel arrangements.


We will once again be staying at the Osthoff Resort in beautiful Elkhart Lake, Wisc.

If you are joining us for the first time, please let us know on the registration form. Also note that The Osthoff Resort is a suite property, which means you will have a roommate. However, each guest in a suite will have their own bedroom and bathroom. If you have a roommate preference, please indicate this on your registration form, and we will try to accommodate you. 


For 2023 we will have a full day of off-roading on two technical courses, a full day of track driving at legendary Road America, two days of street drives, a half-day of autocross, a karting course, and a chance to walk, run, or cycle on the track as part of 4 Miles of Fitness. Stay tuned for details on our first Enthusiast’s Paddock.  


This year’s registration fee for the Spring Rally is $100. This will include all driving opportunities, meals, the Siebkens afterglow, and two nights accommodations. The cutoff for the 2023 Spring Rally registration is May 1, 2023.

Reminder: This invite is for you, a media member, and you only. Please do not bring along friends, significant others, children, non-member photographers, etc. All who attend must be paid-in-full media members in good standing. Any non-member, non-registered guests will be refused entry to the Road America grounds. If you have questions, please ask first.
