Headquarters: Sticks Tavern near Chaska, MN
SCCA Divisional Road Rally. About 90 miles of paved and unpaved roads in the Minnesoata River Valley MN.
These rallies are based on the format created for events such as the Monte Carlo Historic rallies. It is a test of your ability to maintain a constant speed over a specified distance under all conditions on public roads. The rally contains lots of timing points.
The rally will utilize a GPS based timing and scoring system and feature an electronic roadbook friendly to newcomers as well as experienced.
The rally will be run in accordance with the 2020 SCCA Road Rally Regulations (RRR) as amended by the events Additional Supplementary Regulations (ASR). Shortly before the rally you will receive the Roadbook as a PDF. You are expected to print your own copies. If you can't, send us an email and we will print one for you. You will also get an electronic Roadbook or RBK file. Those using the Rally Rabbit 2 app can load it on their device. The rbk not only shows instructions but manages your mileage, time, speed changes, and any other items needed to follow the course and get good scores.
Timing and scoring will be done by the MiRally GPS Control system. An app monitors your location using GPS and reports it to a central Timing and Scoring facility in the cloud. The timing points will be essentially Passage Controls.
This year we will also have some MiRallyGPS boxes. These boxes do not have any of the issues encountered while running apps on contestant phones.
