May 23 - Oldies but Goodies

Oldies but Goodies, Sponsored by South Jersey Region SCCA

Are you a car enthusiast? Do you enjoy driving your car? Do you like to drive on back country roads? Do you like to meet people? Do you hate driving in traffic? Then a car rally is for you. A car rally is a car contest that is legally held on public roads that are the roads least traveled. You will be surprised at how many back roads still exist in South Jersey. Any two people can enter as a team made up of a driver and a navigator. At the start each rally team is given a set of route instructions to follow. Average speeds that are slightly below the speed limits will be in the instructions. Rally cars are spaced in one minute intervals. Along the way you will find secretly located checkpoints. The rally teams that find the checkpoints and arrive most closely to the perfect time will be the winners.

The South Jersey Region (SJR) holds Time-Speed-Distance (TSD) rallies. Long before rally day, the rallymaster (RM) goes out into the country to select the roads to be used and the instructions to be followed. He then measures the mileage with a special odometer that is accurate to the .001 mile. He calculates the official time for each secret checkpoint. There are two types of TSD rallies. The first type is called a Tour Rally. On Tour rallies the route instructions are very straight forward and easy to follow. The biggest challenge of a Tour Rally is to stay on time. The second type is called a Course Rally. Do you like to play games? …solve puzzles?...watch action mystery movies? Then you might prefer a Course Rally. Course rallies have an additional challenge. Course Rallies have some tricky instructions known as Traps. These instructions need to be interpreted correctly in order to arrive at the checkpoints on time. These Trap instructions add a second challenge to the event while still needing to stay on time.

Most of SJRs rallies offer dual events containing both Tour Rally instructions and Course Rally instructions. Newcomers to rallying should either enter the Tour rally in Stock Class or the Course rally in Course Light Class. Course Light Class is an easier version of the regular Course Rally. Course Light Class is a great option for contestants transitioning from Tour Rallies to Course Rallies.

The rally starts and finishes at JG Cooks Carolina Blue Restaurant, 692 Lambs Rd, Pitman, NJ 08071. The requirements to enter are only having a current drivers license and a street legal car or light truck. Cost $35 per car with a $5 discount for prepaying and another $5 discount if both competitors are SCCA members. Note: Fee is $35 or $30 or $25. At the conclusion of the rally everyone is invited to come into JG Cooks and join us as we enjoy the food and drink while swapping “war stories” and “outright lies” about the day’s event. Awards will be presented as soon as the scores are totaled. If you want to join us in a great day of motor sports or if you want more information contact Jim Wakemen Sr at e-mail: jwakemen43@aol.com or Phone: 856-228-9249.
