Are you looking for a change of pace? Well, the SCCA Road Rally department has something a little bit different for you.<span style="line-height: 14px;">Enjoy two-and-a-half days of touring the beautiful back roads around Chattanooga, Tennessee, in the SCCA United States Road Rally Challenge, run as part of the Coker Tire Challenge, Sept. 19-21. Unlike other SCCA Road Rally events, one can run this event on time using the speedometer, only if you wish to, and your odometer, if you want to. With no mileages, you only have to be sure to not miss your left on &lsquo;Cobcorn Road&rsquo; by looking at the road signs.</span></p> <p>This event for experienced rallyists, as well as anyone who has ever run a rally and would like to do it again, has a curve ball. In contrast to past events designed to test the mettle of people who have been running rallies since dinosaurs walked the earth, this year&rsquo;s event is quite different. There will be no &lsquo;main roads&rsquo; to confuse, no &lsquo;traps&rsquo; to embarrass and no complicated lists of rules to follow the course.</p> <p>To enter, go to this <a href="">website</a>.</p> <p>Called the &lsquo;Great Race,&rsquo; the Coker Tire Challenge is the Championship event for many rallyist around the country, many of whom bring out their classic roadsters. In addition to a relatively easy course to follow, bring your cameras because there will be old cars to photograph and otherwise enjoy seeing outside the setting of a museum.</p> <p>The registration tab of the website asks you to select a class. The classes listed are E, L and S. E class is the &lsquo;anything goes&rsquo; method of timing your car with respect to keeping your car exactly on the average speed.</p> <p>Class L prohibits the mileage measurement equipment from automatically updating the timekeeping equipment, which is the essence of a road rally computer, but would include an app on a tablet that would input GPS mileages to automatically give you the time it should be for your position on the road.</p> <p>Class S uses the stock odometer in the stock location, with any sort of computation equipment. That means you can create an Excel spreadsheet and run with your laptop or tablet if you want to in either S or L. The difference between the two is the use of the stock odometer, as opposed to GPS or possibly a dedicated rally odometer.</p> <p>Greater detail on the classes can be seen <a href="">here</a>.</p> <p>So now you have what you need to select the proper class and sign up to see the sights around Chattanoga. You couldn&rsquo;t find these beautiful roads all by yourself on your vacation to Lookout Mountain if you spent two months, but Rallymaster John Classen has been all over these roads. You won&rsquo;t be disappointed.</p> <p>Great Race style rallying is explained in their <a href=" ">rules</a>.</p> <p>Come join us for a different road rally experience.&nbsp;</p> Road Rally Thu, 28 Aug 2014 00:00:00 GMT Season-Long National Championship Results Announced <p>The Sports Car Club of America&rsquo;s Road Rally Office is pleased to announce the results of the 2013 SCCA Road Rally National Championship season-ending stadings.</p> <p><span style="line-height: 14px;">In the National Course Rally Championship, a four-way tie for the title in the Master class, with 100 points, was shared among Bruce Gezon, Steve Gaddy, Mark Haas, and Jim Wakeman, Sr. No one qualified with more than 50 points in Expert grouping, as Richard Wetzel was the highest scoring competitor with 48. In Sportsman class, Craig Bedelman took first, with 84 points, while co-driver Wendy Harrison took second, with 80 points.</span></p> <p>In the National Tour Rally Championship, Mark Haas and Jim Wakeman, Sr. were tied for first with 100 points while Bob Moreseburg and Dave Head were tied for second with 96 points in the Master class. In Expert, Bob DeMeritt won with 96 points while his wife, Marianne Demeritt was, second with 88. Trophies for this large class extended down to fourth place, as Gary Patrick (70 points) took third and Daniel Harkcom claimed the final trophy position with 52 points. In the Sportsman class, Jay Nemeth-Johannes took home the title with 90 points, while second place did not qualify for a trophy because of the 50 point rule.</p> <p>In the National GTA Rally Championship, the Master class was won by Bruce Gezon, with 60 points. In the Expert class, Ted Drummond took first place with 61.7 points, while Wendy Harrison took second after scoring 59.4 points.

The roads and terrain were fun, and quick. Quick was the entertainment for &ldquo;Cast in Stone.&rsquo; Not so quick was the &lsquo;Letters of Intent,&rsquo; where the entertainment was the traps.</p> <p><span style="line-height: 14px;">Not that &lsquo;Cast in Stone&rsquo; was fast, it was only 35 mph for the entire rally. The variations in terrain that might require a bit less aggressive pace were handled with free zones and pauses.</span></p> <p>The course was superb, disregarding the bottomless potholes. Conversation between Bob Morseburg, my driver and I: &ldquo;Something&rsquo;s wrong!&rdquo; &ldquo;What?&rdquo; &ldquo;We haven&rsquo;t hit a big pothole for a while.&rdquo; &ldquo;I think we must be off course&hellip;&rdquo;! With so many switchback followed immediately by controls, the challenge was there, without having to play Roger Racer.</p> <p>And for me, nostalgia flowed over the events. I started out rallying here. I belonged to the Northwestern Ohio Region of the Sports Car Club of America, and that meant two things in 1976. One was that I belonged to a very rally-intensive region, and the other was that I belonged to a Region with its premiere event, the Irish Hills Rally, running in another state from the one in its name. That other state was Michigan, and specifically this area of Michigan.</p> <p>I saw many familiar roads. Unobservable at this time is the fact that Ely Road, which we drove down at least once over the weekend, has some particular breed of trees that, in the fall, have all their leaves turn bright yellow and &lsquo;canopy&rsquo; the road for a visually impactful scene that made rallying there something special.</p> <p>But even without the help of fall color, the courses were beautiful. You may remember riding in the country with your parents when you were young, and if you were like me, I always wondered where that mysterious road that dove down into the wooded area went, and where it came out. Dad, who knew Ohio and was &lsquo;street smart&rsquo; about the ways of the world, said, &ldquo;No, we are not going down there and maybe end up in some farmer&rsquo;s front yard and maybe get shot.&rdquo; Yes, he actually said this to my urging to explore! But these courses were mysterious like that. And, you got to drive some of those mysterious, wondrous roads.</p> <p>Everyone knew that mileage measurement on gravel was going to be a challenge. &lsquo;Cast in Stone&rsquo; was measured from a transmission pickup on a 2-wheel drive car. It&rsquo;s fine, because hardly anyone else had such a system of picking up mileage from the transmission, either. We were equally disadvantaged. Equal is the operative word that makes it OK.</p> <p>And the mileages were as expected. We struggled. We did poorly and we did great. Before lunch, we did not really poorly, just not outstanding. It was going to take outstanding in order to win. We had 12 points before lunch, and with 12 controls before lunch, that used to be a good score on pavement. But, 12 points this weekend was good for a gong-show clang, since General Jack von Kaenel and Ron Johnstonbaugh, did a phenomenal 4 points all morning. We won the afternoon with 6 points to their 10 points, but the damage was already done and the General won. We were second.</p> <p>As already mentioned, &lsquo;Letters of Intent,&rsquo; the course rally, was wet. We spent the day chasing the odometer factor to try to get somewhere close to the right mileages. No joy. The greasy roads were too much for us to post anything close to impressive scores from a simple timing aspect. Other timing issues also stretched out our scores.</p> <p>But ultra-precise timing is not the big issue in a trap, or course, rally. It is the traps.</p> <p>We were well on the way to a decent day until Leg Six. It had already had a few traps in the form of pausing at signs, so when we got to an instruction that was to be completed over a one-mile distance, we knew we had to run out the mile before we could do the next instruction. The next instruction popped up at about &frac34; mile. Uh-oh. No problem, the course will come back together and we&rsquo;ll find the control then.</p> <p>But the courses were not appearing to do any such thing as come back together. Driving for a couple miles, and not seeing the typical looping starting to happen, we pulled over and consulted the GPS and its map. We looked extensively, and could not see a way to get the on and off course cars back together with the subsequent instructions.</p> <p>This is known as bringing your own trap with you. We were dead-on correct that we could not take the right we found at about &frac34; mile and should have continued following main roads until we could take that same instruction sometime later. Fearing getting more than 20 minutes down and being unable to claim a delay to fix things, we turned around and went into the control early. Claiming a delay made things worse. Max score. A max in a rally as otherwise uncomplicated as this one means you kiss winning goodbye.</p> <p>Our other big error was simply missing a dead-end sign straight ahead that made a crossroad into a T. That meant we should have followed the course via the main road &lsquo;Left at T&rsquo; rather than the &lsquo;Right at Crossroad&rsquo; instruction that we executed. Big score, bad juju, and we finished this rally in third.</p> Road Rally Wed, 11 Jun 2014 00:00:00 GMT SCCA Set to Host Formula SAE Lincoln <p><strong>TOPEKA, Kan. (May 30, 2014) &ndash;</strong> For the third-consecutive year, SCCA will welcome a total of 100 Formula SAE teams to Lincoln, Nebraska, June 18-21, for their final meet of 2014. The Club will not only host, but administer the event held at the Lincoln Airpark in association with its philanthropic subsidiary &ndash; the SCCA Foundation.</p> <p><span style="line-height: 14px;">Promoted by the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE), SCCA members play key roles in every aspect of the event. Throughout the three-day meet, specially developed cars designed and constructed by students from around the country, and the globe, are put through a battery of tests including autocross, braking, endurance and business plan competitions.</span></p> <p>&ldquo;Formula SAE serves as a wonderful experience for students to combine education with an outside interest in a constructive, real-world way,&rdquo; SCCA Vice President of Rally, Solo and Special Programs Howard Duncan said. &ldquo;For students with no prior experience in motorsports, this program gives them a taste of what our world is all about. While it gives students with a racing background a place to merge their passion and skills.</p> <p>&ldquo;It is vitally important that the Club be a part of this program. It gives these students an opportunity to see some of what SCCA is all about: problem solving, competition and having fun with our cars.&rdquo;</p> <p>Active SCCA members who volunteer to work the event have the opportunity to get rewarded for their time spent supporting this fun event. Eligible SCCA Club Racing workers can use this event to earn credits toward their Volunteer Incentive Program account. If you are a member of the Solo community, there is an opportunity to earn free entry into a Nebraska Region Solo meet that follows FSAE Lincoln on June 22.</p> <p>The competition, while hosted by SCCA, is put on by SAE, which is made up of more than 138,000 engineers and technical experts in the aerospace, automotive and commercial-vehicle industries, from all over the world. The goal of FSAE, in conjunction with the society&rsquo;s other educational programs, is to give collegiate-level students from all over the world the chance to use engineering and other related skills in a real-world environment.</p> <p>&ldquo;As the leaders in amateur motorsports in the United States, it is our responsibility to be involved in encouraging programs like Formula SAE,&rdquo; SCCA President and CEO Lisa Noble said. &ldquo;It is about supporting the education of automotive engineers as they are the future of the motorsports industry. These highly-talented people will be the innovators and designers of the cars we race in the future.</p> <p>&ldquo;This is our opportunity to show FSAE competitors the passion,excitement and dedication that Club members have for our sport. And how it can be a part of their lives after graduation as they move into the workplace. This event also allows each of these students to better understand and appreciate the role that competition can play in the continued evolution of the automobile.&rdquo;</p> <p>In many ways, FSAE is like college athletics for motorsports. Teams made up of students are tasked with the goal to develop and build a prototype of a new autocross-specific car. Teams are allowed to use a variety of materials and performance enhancements, such as aerodynamic wings, to produce the car with the best performance.</p> <p>While this opens the door for teams to utilize advanced materials, such as carbon fiber, teams are also judged based on the cost to produce these vehicles, as the proposed end goal is to mass produce these vehicles for consumers interested in a high-performance autocross vehicle. That means these cars must balance performance with cost to both the manufacturer and consumer.</p> <p>Many of these students involved in the competition represent the future of the motorsports industry, and the automotive sector as a whole. Domestic and foreign auto makers, such as General Motors and Honda, use these events as a chance to find new, up-and-coming talent to add to their pool of engineers and designers.</p> <p>The close geographical proximity of Lincoln means that many of the Midwestern schools involved in the program may enjoy a slight &lsquo;home field advantage.&rsquo; A large number of schools from the SCCA&rsquo;s Midwest Division have traditionally attended this event, including Kansas State University, Pittsburg (Kan.) State University, the University of Kansas, Wichita State University, Missouri University of Science and Technology, St. Louis University, the University of Missouri, the University of Nebraska-Lincoln and the University of Oklahoma. Many of the students that make up these teams are also Club members, with some having already claimed National Championship honors.</p> <p>If you are interested in volunteering, contact Clancy Schmidt, SCCA Project Manager, at <a href=""></a>, or Linda Duncan, SCCA Volunteer Coordinator, at <a href=""></a>.</p> <p>Information on FSAE Lincoln is available <a href="">here</a>.</p> <p>Additional information on the SCCA Foundation can be viewed by visiting <a href="">this page</a>.</p> Road Rally Fri, 30 May 2014 00:00:00 GMT May Road Rally Newsletter Available <p><strong>TOPEKA, Kan.

Most of the rally will be run south of Interstate 94. Like the other &ldquo;Cast In Stone&quot; rallies, run from 2009 through 2012, there will be only one average speed throughout the rally. Pauses, Gains, and Transit Zones will be used in areas where this average speed might not be appropriate.</span></p> <p>Sunday's event will be named &ldquo;Letters of Intent.&rdquo; The intent, so to speak, is for there to be only one trap, or trap concept, per leg. Numbered route instructions, lettered route instructions and main-road determinants will be used.

The problem was spring was refusing to emerge. Rally events got postponed, and then run as winter events. We were getting nervous as May 3 approached, because we had no backup plan. This was going to run as a spring event. Fortunately, the sun finally emerged, and Saturday turned out to be a perfect day, with scattered clouds and highs in the 60s.<br /> <br /> Seventeen cars gathered at Dunn's Imports in Middleton WI, ranging from late-model Camaros to a 1973 Plymouth Duster. BMWs outnumbered Subarus, for once. While we awaited the start, competitors admired the selection of exotic cars and Moto Guzzi motorcycles in the shop. Jason Dunn, our host and fellow competitor, provided a continental breakfast to help folks get in the mood. After a short rally school, teams were off at 11:00 a.m. on their seven-hour journey.</p> <p><span style="line-height: 14px;">Rallymaster Fred Rosevear provided a 200-mile course that wound through the &lsquo;driftless&rsquo; area west of Madison. It is a region stretching in a rough triangle from Madison, to Lacrosse, to Eau Claire, Wisconsin, where ancient glaciers did not cover the land and grind down the hills. There are deep valleys and steep hillsides.&nbsp;</span></p> <p>The roads are narrow and follow the terrain up and down through the many small canyons. Nothing is straight. The event had longer transit zones, followed by short timed 'stages'. The timed sections, usually a couple of miles, were chosen to be the twistiest roads available. The speeds were set from 38-45 mph, and teams needed to be alert to maintain them.<br /> <br /> Work is being done to establish a local rally program in Milwaukee Region and a loyal group of regulars has started to form.</p> <p>When new folks come out, the goal is for them to enjoy the rally as much as find the route and checkpoints. Fred's course was rock solid. The event kept to its timetable as everyone arrived at the finish line just before 6:00 p.m., as promised.</p> Road Rally Thu, 08 May 2014 00:00:00 GMT WDCR Road Rally Handbook <p>Imagine that you know nothing about road rallying and have just entered your first local event. You arrive at the start as a crowd is starting to gather around the registration table. An entry form, waiver, vehicle-worthiness form must be completed, then the entry fee is paid.
