About this event
Eureka is an SCCA Divisional Course Rally written by Jeanne English. It is a companion rally to ITN's Thunder Road, a Monte Carlo style SCCA National Tour Rally written by Joe Akerman running on Saturday, October 15. Both rallies headquarter at the Hampton Inn in Arvin (Tejon Ranch), CA (see below for hotel info). Registration for Eureka opens at 8:00 am, route instructions are handed out at 8:30 am plus your car number in minutes. Official start time is 9:00 am plus your car number in minutes, but once you receive your route instructions you are free to leave.
From the start, Eureka will head east to Stallion Springs (west of Tehachapi). Besides some fun roads, the rally will visit the Tehachapi Loop and go through a covered bridge! The rally will be lightly trapped, with Jeanne expecting most cars to do most legs correctly. You will be able to run it using either the SCCA RRRs or SMSCC's General Instructions; there will be an addenda to help make that happen.
The rally will use the Richta GPS Competitor app for timing and scoring, with timing to the second. The maximum penalty for Eureka is 1 minute (60 seconds) per leg. Before you arrive at the start, please download the Richta Competitor app to your phone; it's a free download for Android and Apple devices. There is no need for additional timing equipment, your Official Time shows in the app!
Register by October 12 for a $10 discount!
