Nov. 9 Rally

Registration Open

Welcome to a new event in our RoadRally series – The Targa Road Rally! We will take a tour of Wise and Denton Counties, passing through Slidell, Bolivar, Krum and other out-of-the way places. All roads are paved. You will be looking for signs and landmarks, some with surprising answers as you drive. It will take a sharp eye to see them all. There will be some course-following challenges in Krum and Denton, so be ready to navigate precisely and avoid the traps. Our Rally Master is John Poulos. Course following elements courtesy of Liz Witt.

What is a Targa? A Targa is like an automotive triathlon where teams of two drivers will compete in three events (Time Trials, Road Rally, and Autocross) in the same car over 2 days. Class winners will be based on cumulative points for the vehicle, and there will be classes for all experience levels.

You can enter this rally either as a standalone event (rally only) or as part of the Targa. If you choose to just sign up for the rally, then you will follow our standard registration terms and procedures (see below). If you decide to enter the Targa, there is a separate registration process and site (https://www.motorsportreg.com/events/targa-time-trial-rally-solo-events-eagles-canyon-raceway-scca-texas-353188), and you will automatically be registered for the rally. There is no need to register in both places. You will be scored and ranked under both Rally and Targa rules and classifications.

Rally Day is Saturday, November 9th. Registration opens at 12:30 pm at Eagles Canyon Raceway (ECR), 7629 FM51, Decatur, TX 76234, northeast of Decatur and near the town of Slidell. You will have time to view cars competing in the Time Trials event on the ECR track. A Drivers meeting/Safety Briefing will be held at 2:00 pm in the Clubhouse in the downstairs classroom. The finish will be at Rudy’s BBQ, 520 South Interstate 35 E, Denton, TX 76205, on the I-35 frontage road, west side. First car starts at 2:31 pm.
