About this event
Ohio Winter Rally
Saturday, February 1, 2020
Tanned, Rested and Ready: The Ohio Winter Rally is back after a 3 year hiatus. The approximately 150 mile route will traverse portions of northeast Ohio's Lake Erie "snowbelt" counties. Prevailing winter weather and road conditions will dictate the rally's difficulty.
Competitors can expect an absolutely straightforward, gimmick-free Time-Speed-Distance (TSD) road rally, with emphasis on precise timing at well placed controls. A columnar "tulip" route instruction format will be used.
The rally will count toward both the SCCA Great Lakes Division Rally Championship, and the SCCA National Touring Rally Championship (Divisional Rally).
The rally will be timed with the Richta automated checkpoint system. Each team must carry a "smart" phone (Android or iPhone) running the Richta competitor "app". This app is available, free of charge.
Look for "Competitor Richta GPS Checkpoints" app on Google Play Store or Apple App Store or click on the appropriate link:
Prior to the rally, all the checkpoint information (locations by Latitude and Longitude and the correct arrival times) is loaded onto the internet by the rally master. People who register for the rally are given a car number and the password for the app. Each Rally Team then goes to the site and downloads the information for their car. The contestants will NOT be able to view Rally Master information. During the rally, when each car reaches a checkpoint, the contestant’s device will signal a checkpoint has been reached with a “bing-bong” sound. The device will then display your time entered and your score and say “early” or “late”. Your total score for the rally to that point will also be displayed.
