Following the Membership Social for those interested in a little fun filled friendly competition, we will be having a GTA "Gimmick" Rally. There will be a driver’s meeting that you will definitely want to attend for those that have never attended a gimmick rally. At this meeting they will explain how the rally is run and probably throw a few of the gimmicks your way for some easy points. A route will be provided to all participants of the Gimmick Rally starting at Gateway Classic Cars of Houston you and a co-driver will drive 60-70 miles ending at Gordon Street Tavern in Alvin, TX. You will check in once you arrive to Gordon Street Tavern, after that you can order a cold root beer or beverage of your choice and some food. We will be giving away prizes for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place.  

NOTE: ****Bonus Points will be given for having children and pets in the vehicle with you****

GTA Rally - "GTA" stands for Game, Tour and Adventure. This type of rally, also known as a "gimmick" or "game" rally, is typically a contest run in cars on public roads, with a driver and a co-driver (navigator). Scoring is by other than the time-speed-distance format used in the SCCA road rallies. The outcome may be determined completely by chance, as in drawing a playing card at each five controls, with the best poker hand winning, or by using rally course-following skills as well-developed as those in SCCA's National Course Rally Series.

Other GTA "Gimmick" Rally Format Examples:

Course Marker rally contestants pass signs placed by the Rally Master along the intended route. These signs may ask questions, cancel parts of instructions or send cars along a different course. There is no “timing” other than completing the course within a fixed period. Scoring is based on correctly completing an answer sheet.

A/B Rallies describe a course based on whether a choice of actions (A or B) can be done in accordance with the rally’s rules. As in course marker rallies, the answer sheet determines the score. 

Treasure Hunts (Map Clue Rallies)

You use clues and riddles to find streets or landmarks on the provided map. Then you lay out your own course to travel to these locations to gather the requested information for your score sheet.
