About this event
Heck's and Back Roadrally is sponsored by Philadelphia Region SCCA with the cooperation of Blue Mountain Region. The Heck's and Back GTA RoadRally is a question and answer divisional rally that will traverse some scenic back roads in Berks County, many of which will feature hex signs, which are common in the area. Rallymasters Bruce Gezon and Clyde Heckler have designed a course that features some questions containing a few tricks (traps) to separate the scores. We offer two classes Experienced (team members have run 5 or more rallies combined) and Novice. There will be awards (hex sign themed) for first and second experienced, and first through third for novice entries.
Our route will cover approximately 70 miles and you will have 4 hours to complete it. The route is totally paved, so no worries about dirt/rocks.
After you register, approximately two weeks before the event, you will receive general instructions which will explain the rules for the rally, how to follow the course, a glossary of terms included in the route instructions, scoring, etc. General instructions will also eventually be available on this webpage.
