What is a Road Rally?
A Road Rally is a scenic drive with a purpose, a chance to enjoy a day with a friend, and one of the least expensive forms of motorsport! Events do not involve speed and teams do not need specialized equipment for their car. Competitors should never feel the need to speed or drive unsafely to meet time goals. The goal of a Road Rally is precision, not risk.
When the day of the event arrives, teams will compete to see who is the best at reading the route instructions carefully, following the route, and maintaining the assigned average speeds.
Road Rally teams are made up of two people with one of them – the driver – keeping eyes on the road and the other – the navigator – reading directions, figuring out times and helping spot landmarks. The competition is measured by when teams arrive at precisely-measured checkpoints set up along the rally route where the exact arrival time has been calculated based on the designated average speeds.
Penalty points are assigned if a team arrives at a checkpoint late or early. Scavenger hunt items may need to be collected and presented at the end. In addition, there will be a questionnaire along the way, the questions relating to the landmarks along the course. Scoring will be based on several criteria including time, scavenger hunt items and the questionnaire. The further off the time, the more points the team gets and when the time comes to hand out trophies – the best score wins.
