January First Friday Niter

Bank of America - Rear Lot

About this event

Start the new year out right with a First Friday Niter rally!   The rallymaster is Joe Akerman.  This rally will be a Monte Carlo/TSD rally, meaning you get turn-by-turn directions, AND you get your target time at each Checkpoint.  All Timed Checkpoints are listed in the Route Instructions, and all are referenced by prominent signs on course. 

For those of you who haven't tried a road rally before, the object is to enjoy driving sweeping, challenging, back roads at legal speeds while following some detailed directions in order to pass a series of checkpoints at just the right time.  No need for advanced math. No riddles and no gimmicks -- just beautiful roads to drive with a focus on precision and accuracy.  This is a team sport -- driver and navigator must work together to get it right.

There are no set speeds, just run at the posted speed limits (rally is timed at least 2 mph BELOW those limits and has added pauses where needed).  If you reach a timed Checkpoint early, you can pull over out of traffic lanes, and either creep, or stop and wait for your target time to cross the Checkpoint.  

We will be using the Richta GPS Competitor app for timing and scoring, with timing in seconds.  This app is FREE and easy to use on any GPS-enabled smartphone.  Go to the App Store or Google Play Store, or https://richtarally.com/. There is no need for additional timing equipment or clocks – your Official Time shows in the app!  

Also, if you want to see all the scores at the Finish, download the FREE Richta Scoreboard app also.  

Please try to register on line here on MotorSportReg.  If that doesn't work for you, you can still register in person at the start.  We start at the Bank of America rear lot, 10300 Sepulveda Blvd (Sepulveda and Devonshire) in Mission Hills.  In-person registration opens at 7:00 pm, with the first car out at 8:01 pm; there is a beginner/Richta meeting at 7:40 pm.  Finish will be in the Moorpark area.
