About this event
Tulip Time Rally
May 25, 2019
Spring road rally created for drivers!
It's time again for our spring drive, the Tulip Time Rally! And "drive" is the important word as this will be a driver's rally with curvy roads out in the country. We will take a tour of Collin and Grayson Counties, visiting Gunter, Tom Bean and other out-of-the way places. Course following will be easy. All roads are paved. You will be looking for signs, some with surprising answers as you drive. It will take a sharp eye to see them all. Our Rally Master is Sasha Lanz.
Rally Day is Saturday, May 25. Registration opens at 9:30 am at Chrysler Jeep Dodge City of McKinney, 700 S Central Expy, McKinney, TX 75070, south of Virginia Pkwy on the southbound service road. A Drivers meeting will be held at 10:30 am. The finish will be at the El Fenix in McKinney, two miles south of the dealership. First car starts at 11:01 am.
This is an SCCA GTA (Games, Tours, Adventures) rally. The course is about 100 miles on public roads at legal speeds. Any street-legal, four-wheel vehicle may enter. Teams of three or more cars may form to compete for highest average score. Each car must run its rally independently, with no collaboration with other cars during the rally. At least two people (a driver and a navigator) are required in each car; contact email@example.com if you have a minor child (<18) in the car, as a form will need to be signed.
The Rally Fee is $25.00 for SCCA Members and $30.00 for non-members. There is a $5.00 late fee if you are not preregistered at MotorSportreg.com.
We encourage entrants to pre-register at least a couple of days in advance, to allow time to review the rules. To pre-register, page down and click on “Continue.” The Rally Committee reserves the right to limit entries.
There are four classes: First Timer, Novice (<3 rally trophies), General, and Master (optional class: no trophies given). When you register at MotorsportReg.com, we will add you to the rally mailing list so that we can send you the rally rules a few days before the event.
As a warm up for this rally, we will have a rally school on Saturday, May 18 at St. Barnabas Presbyterian Church. Follow the link http://msreg.com/rrs19 to register. Entry fee is $5 per person. Check in will be at 9:30 am and the school will start about 10 am. After a classroom session, we will have a short rally in the neighborhood for you to practice your skills. A postmortem will follow.
