Ron Dunlop Memorial Rally, SCCA Divisional Tour

McDonalds parking lot

About this event

The Ron Dunlop Memorial Rally.

On March 19, 2022 please join us for a fun and exciting car road rally celebrating the life of Ron Dunlop, a great guy and tremendous rally organizer and competitor. This rally will explore the amazing wine country back roads around the Santa Barbara and Santa Maria areas.  The Route Instructions will use a simple Monte Carlo format, meaning you get turn-by-turn directions, AND you get your target time at each Checkpoint. All Timed Checkpoints are listed in the Route Instructions, and all are referenced by prominent signs on the course.  The rally is a little over 200 miles long and you will have 7 hours of driving nirvana with many breaks for gas, food, and rest stops.  Rallymaster is Paul McGaffey.

The object of this event is to enjoy driving sweeping, beautiful, challenging back roads at legal speeds while following simple directions in order to pass a series of checkpoints at just the right time. 

There is no need for advanced math, no riddles, compasses, maps or gimmicks, just glorious roads to drive with a focus on precision and accuracy. This is a team sport, driver and navigator must work together to get it right.

There are no average speeds, just run at the posted speed limits (rally is timed at least 2 mph BELOW those limits and has pauses where needed). If you reach a timed Checkpoint early, you can pull over, out of traffic lanes, and either creep, or stop and wait for your target time to pass by the Checkpoint.

We will be using the Richta GPS Competitor app for timing and scoring. This app is FREE and easy to use on any GPS-enabled smartphone or other device.  Go to the App Store or Google Play Store or and download it. There is no need for additional timing equipment, your Official Time shows in the app!

This event has been designed to be EV friendly.  There are 5 stations and a Tesla Dealership near the start in Camarillo. There are 5 stations near the lunch break in Santa Maria. There are 2 fast charging stations and a Tesla Supercharger in the parking lot at the finish in Goleta. 

We start at the Mcdonald's rear lot at 60 W Daily Dr, Camarillo, CA 93010.  In-person registration opens at 9:00 am, with the first car out at 10:01 am; there is a beginner/Richta meeting at 9:40 am. 

Finish will be at Camino Real Marketplace (near Starbucks), 7030 Market Place Dr, Goleta, CA 93117. First car should be at Finish around 5 pm.

Event requirements

Please register online here at MotorsportsReg.     Registration fee is $60 per car.  There’s a $15 discount for SCCA members. If the "register now" button doesn't work, please reload this page and try again. Due to the limitations of this platform, the "driver" must register first and must be the one to pay.  Doesn't matter if you're actually going to be the navigator, we'll switch you into the proper seat at the start of the rally.  After the "driver" registers, the "navigator" can then register and will select their "driver" from the drop-down menu.  If you're registering as SCCA, either the "driver" or "navigator" (or both) can be the SCCA member, but you must have at least one current member.. You may still register in person at the Start. (Sorry, but we will not be able to accept credit cards at Registration.  Please use the MSR website to pay by credit card.) 

Both driver and navigator are strongly encouraged to use Speedwaiver to complete the waiver.  To save time for both you and us at the Start, we ask you to please enter your cell phone number where indicated near the bottom of the registration page, and please check the "yes" button just below that.  Speedwaiver will send you a text, and you simply follow their directions to use your phone to complete the waiver. We will have paper waivers at the start if you prefer.
