Join us for our Houston Region GTA Banquet Rally - RallyCross, Road Racing, RoadRally and Solo

The day of the Annual Awards Banquet we will be having a GTA Rally. There will be a quick 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 MSR Houston and ending at the Kemah Boardwalk in Kemah. The route you or you and a co-driver will drive is a total of 54 miles. Have fun out there!

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.
