SCCA Detroit Region Presents

Press on Regardless® National Tour RoadRally(s)

Friday and Saturday, September 6 & 7 2024 

You are invited to join us for two 225-mile brisk time-speed-distance, National Tour RoadRally(s) in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula with a separate sanction for each day. Many historic, challenging, and fun roads from the early 1970’s POR will be used. The Richta GPS Checkpoint app will be used for timing. The cumulative score from both days will determine the overall winners of the 2024 POR. You can expect close to 100 checkpoints each day.

This is the 75th anniversary. First run in 1949, POR (Press On Regardless®) is the oldest continuously run rally in North America. These straightforward (absolutely no traps) Tour rallies will use a mix of unpaved (75%) and paved (25%) roads varying from smooth fast gravel roads to tight and technical single lane roads. While not a car breaker, vehicles with low ground clearance are not recommended. Liberal use of free zones and pauses help you navigate through any rough areas on the route.

Pre-registration is required and closes on Tuesday September 3 at 9:00 PM EST.

There will be a 30 car limit for each day.

Friday Press On Regardless, September 6, 2024: SCCA member, $100 per car.

Saturday Press On Regardless, September 7, 2024: SCCA member, $100 per car.

Non-members must purchase a weekend membership. The cost is $20 per person, but $15 would be credited toward a full membership if purchased within 60 days of the event.  

Free T-Shirts will be provided to competitors that register before August 26, 2024. Please provide the shirt size for both entrants.

NOTE: We will be using the Richta GPS Checkpoint app that requires the use of a device like a smart phone or tablet.
Look for "Competitor Richta GPS Checkpoints" app on Google Play Store or Apple App Store or click on the appropriate link:

During the rally, when each car reaches a checkpoint, the contestant’s device will signal a checkpoint has been reached. The device will then display your time and score and if you are early or late. Your total score for the rally to that point will also be displayed.

Visit the Richta app information page at to learn more about how the app works and how to use it.

  • All passage timing controls using Richta GPS app
  • Novices welcome and encouraged
  • Points toward Detroit Region, Great Lakes Division SCCA, and the SCCA National RR Championship
