About this event
TULIP TIME RALLY
This fun rally will introduce you to another type of Route Instruction, the "tulip." This is a sort-of aerial-view drawing of the intersection you are looking for, clearly showing where you enter the intersection (the "bulb," a black dot at the bottom of the diagram), and where you leave (the "flower," or arrow on one of the lines making up the diagram).
A new instruction type isn’t the only thing new about this rally: we are going to introduce you to a new method of scoring, timing to the second. But this is easy: all you need is a watch with a second hand. We ask you to drive a one-hour+ loop north of Denton, twice, in exactly the same time. The team that comes closest to that goal will be the winner. There will be a few bonus questions in case of ties.
New instructions, new scoring, and a wonderful new starting place: the Pack Automotive Museum in Carrollton. This is a private collection of 100 old and significant cars, that you can enjoy during registration for the rally. It is at the corner of Diplomat Dr. and Senlac Dr., found between I-35 freeway and Bush Turnpike.
Course following will be easy, with mileages at most instructions.
