About this event


SCCA Blackhawk Valley Region Presents

The “Bob Phillips” Memorial CHEESE Road Rally w/Poker Hands

Saturday July 23, 2022


Join your fellow car enthusiasts for this 4 hour, 80 mile Poker Hand Road Rally

Bob Phillips was a long time BVR member and Rally competitor.  He was the Rallymaster for many, many CHEESE Rallies before he passed away.  It was originally called the “Ides of CHEESE Rally”, and was run in March, with Awards being chunks of great Wisconsin Cheese!!!  BVR is pleased to restart our Rally program with the CHEESE Rally honoring him!!!

You and a partner (driver and navigator) will be issued a set of Route Instructions that will take you on a scenic drive through the marvelous country roads in Northern Illinois and Southern Wisconsin.  

This is a "Tour" type rally and there are no timing, route traps or tricks - just drive, enjoy the great roads and country scenery.  This is a rally designed especially for people with little or no rally experience.  The course can be traversed at rally speeds with normal precautions and observing all normal traffic regulations and rules of the road.

The object of the rally is to follow the prescribed route and arrive at each checkpoint so you may make a card draw from a deck of cards.

Checkpoints will be set up along the way to monitor how well you are following the route and give you the chance to draw a good card for your Poker Hand, and Awards will be presented to the teams with the best Poker Hands.
