SCCA Milwaukee Region Presents
Roads Scamper National Tour RoadRally
Sunday, June 4, 2023
Join your fellow RoadRally enthusiasts for this 180 mile time-speed-distance National Tour RoadRally in the beautiful Wisconsin countryside. You and your rally partner will enjoy a scenic rally adventure through the marvelous country roads from Prairie du Chien to Madison on the north side of the Wisconsin River. This rally will use the Richta GPS checkpoint app. Contestants will download the app to their smartphone in advance of the rally. During the rally this app will use the GPS signals and automatically record your arrival time at each checkpoint and then display your score to you!! No more waiting until the rally is over to find out how you did. A bonus feature of this Richta GPS checkpoint system is that we can provide you with many more checkpoints and more challenging checkpoint locations. Expect at least 100 checkpoints in this 180 mile rally. Contestants will need a smartphone in order to run this event. If you're planning to run another rally app during the event, you'll need to do that on a separate device. The Richta GPS checkpoint app needs to be the only app running on your phone during the rally.
This is a tour type rally, so there are no tricks or traps. There are no unpaved roads on the Roads Scamper rally route.

Contestants will be asked to enter in one of these four Classes, as determined by the distance measurement and calculating devices that will be used.
Class E (Equipped)
There are no restrictions on calculating equipment in this Class. Typical calculating devices in this Class include: Alfa, Chronar, Timewise, and Zeron rally computers.
Class L (Limited)
All distance information is derived from any of the following: the vehicle’s electronic system, the vehicle’s speedometer cable, or pulses generated by the movement of the vehicle (e.g. magnets mounted to the drivetrain, of GPS devices). Calculating devices are limited to those that require manual entry of the distance information (e.g. Curta calculators, tables, laptop computers, electronic APPs, programmable and non-programmable electronic calculators). Readouts that continuously show the difference from either the perfect time or the perfect distance are prohibited.
Class S (Stock)
Any distance information used for timing calculations must be visually acquired from the vehicle’s stock, non-adjustable odometer in the stock location. Any calculating device may be used as long as the distance information from the vehicle’s stock odometer is manually entered into the device. GPS odometers may be used in this Class only if their information is NOT used for any timing calculations or for any determination of earliness or lateness.
Class G (GPS)
All distance information must be derived from a GPS source. Calculating devices may be any electronic device (e.g. Simple Rally Computer type APPs and a GPS-Pulser providing distance input to a Rally computer.
