DETROIT REGION SCCA PRESENTS

Press on Regardless 2021
72nd Anniversary

Saturday, September 11, 2021
(finishing @ 2:01 am Sunday)

 

You are invited to join us for this 425 mile brisk time-speed-distance Divisional Tour RoadRally run on the fantastic rural roads of northern Michigan. First run in 1949, POR (Press On Regardless®) has a history like no other rally. It is the oldest continuously run rally (73rd running) in North America. Saint Ignace is located in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan just north of the Mackinac Bridge near the Hiawatha National and Lake Superior State Forests. Starting at noon on Saturday and ending after midnight, this straightforward (no traps) Tour rally will use a fun and challenging mix of unpaved (80%) and paved (20%) twisty county and forest roads that vary from mix smooth fast gravel roads to tight and technical single lane roads to test your ability and endurance to pass hidden controls neither early or late. While not a car breaker, vehicles with low ground clearance are not recommended. Liberal use of free zones and pauses help you navigate thru any rough areas on the route.

Start/ Finish: The parking lot of the Quality Inn, 561 Boulevard Drive Saint Ignace, MI 49781

NOTE: This rally will use the Richta app for timing and scoring. If you have not used this technology in a rally before then you must take a few moments to visit the Richta app information page at http://drscca.org/rally/using-the-richta-competitor-app/ to learn how the app works and how to use it.

With very few exceptions, this rally will run to the SCCA tour rally rules.  This event will count toward the Detroit Region, Great Lakes Division SCCA Road Rally and National Championships.

The 2021 Road Rally Rules can be found at: https://www.scca.com/downloads/53201-2021-road-rally-rules-updated-12-21-2020/download.  Pay particular attention to Articles 22 and 23 which reference rules for National Tour rallies.
