Tick Tock Registration

Fellow Road Rally enthusiasts:

You’re invited to the Tick Tock Rally, an SCCA Regional Time-Speed-Distance (TSD) tour rally.  The rally will start and end in Anna, Texas and will traverse paved backroads of Collin County.  At fun speeds. This is a precision driving event to (re)introduce TSD rallying to the Texas Region. We give you speeds to travel and then time you at points along the route to see how well you maintain those speeds.  Liz Witt is Rallymaster and, for those who know her, she promises there are absolutely no traps on this rally. All instructions telling you where to go have official mileages so following the course is very easy. It is not a speed or racing contest. Timing will rely on the Richta GPS smart phone app, developed recently by an experienced SCCA rallyist.  We will send you information on it after you pre-register. Also, we plan to conduct a Rally School, including a short test rally that you can run to see how the app works, before rally day. More to follow on this.

In light of the current COVID-19 situation, every attempt will be made to minimize the risks of exposure to the virus. New processes and procedures have been developed and will be put into place to support this objective. We will send you all the registration materials to print and fill out at home. You do not have to get out of your car.  We will collect the completed registration forms from you and witness you signing the Release and Waiver of Liability.   We will also send you the General Instructions and Route Instructions to print out at home.

Ultimately, it is your responsibility to assess the risk to you, comply with applicable COVID-19 guidelines and make the decision on whether or not to participate. If you are feeling unwell or are experiencing symptoms such as fever, cough, or shortness of breath, please stay home. If you have been in contact with someone who has been experiencing these symptoms in the last two weeks, please stay home. While on site, please take the health and safety of your fellow participants, volunteers and staff into consideration and practice social distancing, wear a mask, and wash your hands and/or use hand sanitizer frequently.

Rally School Registration

If you signed up for the Tick Tock Rally (October 17), or if you just want to learn about Time-Speed-Distance (TSD) rallies and the Richta smart phone app that we will be using for timing of the rally, then we invite you to a short Rally School.  Liz Witt, Rallymaster for the Tick Tock Rally, will be your instructor.  When you register, we will send information on how to download the app and also directions for a very short course in Richardson where you can go see how it works.

Rally School Day is Saturday, October 10th. You will be able to maintain social distancing for the whole event.  The “classroom” instruction will be conducted via Zoom session.  Class begins at 10:30 am and should run for about an hour and a half, including time for Q&A.  

Following the instruction session, you’re free to run the approximately 1-mile test course over paved roads in Richardson, Texas; start and finish locations will be specified in the route instructions. You may complete this test run any day or time at your convenience, though we recommend doing so the same day of the School, after attending the Zoom orientation session, or at least several days in advance of the Rally.   Any street-legal, four-wheel vehicle may enter.  At least two people (a driver and a navigator) are required in each car.  This is not a speed event.

Follow-up questions after the event should be directed to Liz Witt, who will compile them and post and/or distribute answers to all entrants. We may schedule a follow-up Zoom Q&A session a few days prior to the Rally if warranted.

There is no charge for this event. You must preregister on

Note: if you plan to register for the Tick Tock Rally, we strongly urge you to do so early and in time to also attend this Rally School. 

This is not a SCCA sanctioned and insured event.
