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. 

This will be an extremely low contact event.  You can register and sign your waiver online here at MSR.  All you have to do at Start is pick up your Route Instructions. The Start is outdoors and our staff will be socially distanced, masked and vaxxed for everyone’s protection.

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 There is no need for additional timing equipment or clocks – your Official Time shows in the app!  

Use the discount code HAPPY22 to get 20% off your entry fee for this event.

Also, if you want to see all the scores at the Finish, download the FREE Richta Scoreboard app also.  Finish will be at Pizza Man Dan’s, 144 Los Angeles Ave, Moorpark, CA 93021, 805 658 6666.

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.
