BMW CCA Fall 2016 TSD
Come join other CCA members as we offer our first TSD rally in many years. The Fall TSD will be headquartered at the Guesthouse Inn, 1000 Griffin Ave, Enumclaw, WA 98022, on the weekend of September 17th, 2016. It is a straight forward TSD Monte Carlo style rally of approximately 178 miles. The rally will offer two opportunities for amenities such as food, gas and bathrooms. The initial registration, tech inspection and drivers meeting will occur at the Guesthouse Inn, Enumclaw, WA. Contestants should expect a majority of paved public roads. Make sure to obey signs posted on all roads. Afterwards, enjoy food and a beverage and revel in the adventures of the day while scoring is being done. Entry will be limited to the first 25 registered teams.
In a Time-Speed-Distance rally, the Route Instructions, in addition to information to keep a team on course, also give assigned speeds. These speeds are always legal and often are below the posted speed limit. A TSD rally is a competition of precision driving – it is not a race!
The goal of a rally team (consisting of two people) is twofold: to stay on the prescribed course and to drive at exactly the given speed. The perfect team would be on course, on time at any given point along the route. To score teams against this goal, checkpoints are sprinkled throughout the course at unspecified locations. Each team is timed by a crew at the checkpoint (also called a control) and their time is compared against a perfect time (computed from the assigned speeds and the exact distances measured before the event). Each team receives a score based on its time for that portion, or leg, of the course. For each fraction of a minute early or late, the team is given points. The team with the lowest total score for all the legs wins.
This event is being offered free to all current BMWCCA members. (1 person on each team must be a current BMWCCA member) Each team member will need to register separately. One should register first, the second should select the first as their co driver on their registration.
