TSD Tour Rally by Detroit SCCA


This is a Detroit SCCA Regional Rally, it does not count toward any Road Rally Championships. The classes run in these championships are different and this rally is meant to give you a start/improve your start in road rallying or simply have [safe] fun on roads driving.

You are a car enthusiast. You enjoy driving on unpaved roads. You like the challenge of arriving at each control points on time [or somewhere near on time]. You are a good driver-navigator team [or at least you think so]. You want to enjoy the scenery … if you can. You want to learn the whole new world of road rally or learn to achieve low scores. Well then, come participate in this very 1st Top Sun Road Rally of approximately 4.5 hours, about 110 miles Time-Speed-Distance [TSD] road rally. 

This is a rally designed especially for people with little or no road rally experience. Let this not stop you veterans from re-living your past on how you got your start in rallying and sharing your experience with others. This is a "Tour" type rally and there are no traps or tricks.  You and a partner (driver and navigator) will be issued a set of Route Instructions that will take you through the country roads in southeast Michigan. There will be two Sections with an hour break between the Sections. Use the breaktime to discuss with other competitors and get inputs from rally veterans. Trophies will be presented to the teams who do the best job of arriving at the checkpoints at the proper times. 

We'll be using the Richta GPS checkpoint system to record your arrival time at each checkpoint.  Once you register, you'll receive information on how to download a custom app to your smartphone.  You'll keep this app open while you run the rally and it will use the GPS signal from your device to record your arrival time at each checkpoint.  Once you pass a checkpoint, the app will automatically calculate your score for that checkpoint and display it to you!  No more waiting for the end of the rally to see how you did. You'll see your score on each checkpoint as you go along.

Look for "Competitor Richta GPS Checkpoints" app on Google Play Store or Apple App Store or click on the appropriate link:

 You should choose one of these three Classes to register in:

  • CalculatingUnmodified stock odometer only.  Calculating device restricted only in that it may not be integrated with the odometer and clock.
  • SOP (Seat Of The Pants):  No timing calculations may be performed.
  • First Timer:  Neither crew member has run a Time-Speed-Distance rally more than twice before. Otherwise the same as "Calculating".

Pre-registration is required for this event.  General Instructions that explain more details about how the rally works will be emailed to all registered contestants prior to the event.  There is a 30 car limit for this event.
