We take our responsibility to provide you with a fun and exciting rally very seriously. We have searched diligently to find you the prettiest roads we could, and to get you out of civilization as much as possible. We will be running the best roads in the San Gabriel and Tehachapi mountains, the Antelope Valley and the vineyards, farms, orchards and hills of Kern County. We’ve chosen to start the rally about an hour north of Los Angeles, so that you’re onto good rally roads almost as soon as you leave the Start.
The Route Instructions for this event will use a simple Monte Carlo format, meaning you get turn-by-turn directions, AND you get your target time at each Checkpoint. All Timed Checkpoints are listed in the Route Instructions, and all are referenced by prominent signs on the course. The rally is a little over 240 miles long and you will have 7 and a half hours of driving nirvana with many breaks for gas, food, and rest stops. Rallymaster is Joe Akerman.
The object of this event is to enjoy driving sweeping, beautiful, challenging back roads at legal speeds while following simple directions in order to pass a series of Checkpoints at just the right time.
There is no need for advanced math, no riddles, compasses, maps or gimmicks, just glorious roads to drive with a focus on precision and accuracy. This is a team sport — driver and navigator must work together to get it right. Only 2 people are allowed per car on SCCA National rallies. The rally will run rain or shine,
There are no preset average speeds, just run at the posted speed limits (rally is timed at least 2 mph BELOW those limits and has pauses where needed). If you reach a timed Checkpoint early, you can pull over, out of traffic lanes, and either creep, or stop and wait for your target time to pass by the Checkpoint.
