Good things to know: As indicated above, we will use the Richta Rally GPS Checkpoint System for timing and scoring. To compete, each participating team must have a smartphone or tablet with active data cellular service (no airplane mode and no wi-fi only devices) with the Richta Competitor App installed. The app will report your arrival time and leg score to your cellphone or tablet moments after you pass each GPS checkpoint location. To download the app, search for "Competitor Richta" or "Richta GPS Competitor App"  at Google Play or in Apple’s App Store. For more information about the Richta GPS system visit

The SCCA Detroit Region’s rally page has an excellent summary of the Richta system, especially its Competitor App. Visit It’s is worth your time.

Event requirements

Rules and Waivers:

The standard SCCA rules regarding road-rallies will be observed. To wit: proof of valid driver’s license and current auto insurance, vehicle inspection (self-inspection by the rally team), and signing of applicable SCCA forms.

All participants will be required to read and sign the standard SCCA waiver before being allowed to participate in this event. The signing of the SCCA’s “Release and Waiver of Liability, Assumption of Risk and Indemnity Agreement” is a precondition to participating in any SCCA event. Any adult, age 18 or older, must sign the waiver.

Minor Participants: A Minor taking part in this event must have an Annual Minor Waiver on file with the SCCA for the current calendar year, i.e., 2024.

The Age of Majority is 18 years except in Alabama and Nebraska, where it is, 19 and Mississippi, where it is 21.

The Annual Minor Waiver will be issued to the Minor by the SCCA National Office. For more information about this process, click on the following document and see the section “Minor Annual Waivers”: Digital Annual Waiver 12-01-2021.pdf.

Before obtaining an “Annual Waiver Minor” for a child, nonmember parents/guardians, as well as the minor in question, must obtain an SCCA Guest Account.

1. Log onto
2. Click on “Join/Renew” in the information bar at the top of the page.
3. Click on “Create a Guest Account.”
4. Click on “I don’t have a Member ID.”
5. Complete the required information.

Once you, as parents or guardians, have received your Guest Accounts, you can begin the process of acquiring an Annual Minor Waiver for your child. See again the document noted above: Digital Annual Waiver 12-01-2021.pdf.

Do not wait until the last moment to obtain an Annual Minor Waiver for your Minor child/participant. SCCA staff normally are not available after regular business hours or during weekends; so a last-minute Annual Minor Waiver request cannot be processed before the start of this road rally. Without a valid waiver, your Minor will not be allowed to participate.

Finally, please read carefully:

If you are registering yourself for the first time, and you will be paying for the event entry, choose Option 1 on the order form and follow the prompts.

If you are registering as a co-entrant and your partner has already registered, choose Option 2 on the order form.
