About this event
The Atlanta Region of the Sports Car Club of America invites you to the first RoadRally of the season, a 100 mile tour of the countryside around Athens, Georgia. Using only paved, through roads, competitors (two to a car) will be given route instructions to follow and at least 25 multiple choice questions to answer from along the route.
There will also be several Magic Miles along the route – these segments, clearly marked in the routes, will have competitors maintain an average speed over a one mile long segment. There may be a checkpoint somewhere along that mile and, based on the distance the team has traveled and the speed they are supposed to be traveling at, their exact time will be known to the checkpoint crew. Arrive on time and you’re doing well. Arrive early or late, and you’ll pick up some penalty points.
- Each incorrect answer: 15 points
- Each hundredth of a minute early or late at a checkpoint: 1 point
- Maximum score at a checkpoint or a missed checkpoint: 50 points
Lowest score wins. A RoadRally is not a race: competitors will never need to exceed the posted speed limit.
The start will be at the Jittery Joe’s Roaster Tasting Room, 425 Barber Street, in Athens. Registration will run from 10:30-11:30 a.m., first car off at 12:01 and the last car should reach the finish around 4:00. The finish will be at Loco’s Grill on Barnett Shoals Road in Athens. Entry fee is $25 ($20 for SCCA members). Come to the start a little early and you can join Athens’ monthly Coffee and Cars event which starts at 9:00.
All pre-registered competitors will receive an event dashboard plaque.
