2017 Road Rally Events

posted Mar 3, 2017, 2:33 PM by Club Office   [ updated Mar 3, 2017, 2:33 PM ]

 

Have you ever wondered about Road Rally?  Now's your time to try!  We are co-hosting an event with our partner, the MGs of Baltimore to be held in Joppa, MD on Sunday, May 7th, called Get The Dust Off. (registration form attached below)

Don't know the rules or how to do a Road Rally??  NO problem - we are also hosting a Rally School for first-timers or anyone needing to brush up on their skills on Saturday April 8th in Parkville, MD. (registration form attached below)

In the main, Road Rallying is a contest of precision. Contestants follow a prescribed route at prescribed average (legal) speeds. Along the route, the contestants visit checkpoints where their passage is timed. Scoring is based on matching the speeds/times from checkpoint to checkpoint.  Each vehicle has a team of 2, a driver and a navigator.  Great way to spend the day with other auto-enthusiasts doing something cool with your car!

Registration is handled by paper only (no online/electronic sign-up).  You must be pre-registered by April 1st for the school.  See the flyer/registration forms, and lots more info on our Road Rally webpage.

Did you know - many of our members got their start in Road Rally?  This year is the 27th running of the annual Get The Dust Off Rallye.  Come see what all the fun is about!!

Questions: contact our RallyMaster, Eric Salminen at mgobrallymaster@gmail.com.
