Road Rally


Registration Open

Entry List

You are invited to Texas for ONTO Fall, an SCCA National GTA (games, tours and adventures) rally.  This will be a course-following rally with the scoring questions designed to determine if you followed the correct course and/or applied the rules correctly. All “traps” are carefully looped so you do not get lost if you err.  Our Rally Master, Liz Witt, adds: “I’m incapable of putting on a rally without the tricks reminiscent of the trap rallies I loved many years ago–Rustler’s Run and Heart of Dixie and others I’ve long forgotten. So, there are plenty.  And some nice roads. Would love to have you come.  October in Texas is usually beautiful.”

The rally will start and end in McKinney, Texas on the northeast edge of the Dallas Metroplex and will traverse the paved backroads of Collin County.  

The challenge of a Road Rally is to follow a prescribed course at legal speeds and to read signs and landmarks along the route to find answers to questions supplied by the organizers.  It is not a contest of speed or racing.

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. Additional details on the Targa can be found at https://www.texasscca.org/rally/.

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. If you decide to enter the Targa, use this link Time Trial, Rally, Solo, 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.

This is an SCCA GTA (Games, Tours, Adventures) rally. The course is about 40 miles on public roads at legal speeds. Any street-legal, four-wheel vehicle may enter. Teams of three or more cars of the same make may form to compete for highest average score. Each car must run its rally independently, with no collaboration with other cars during the rally. At least two people (a driver and a navigator) are required in each car; contact rally@texasscca.org if you have a minor child (<18) in the car, as a form will need to be signed.

The Rally Fee is $25.00 for SCCA Members and $30.00 for non-members. There is a $5.00 late fee if you are not pre-registered at MotorSportreg.com. The Rally Committee reserves the right to limit entries. There is a different fee structure for Targa entrants.

We encourage entrants to pre-register at least a couple of days in advance, to allow time to review the rules. To pre-register, page down and click on “Continue.”

There are four classes: First Timer, Novice (<3 rally trophies), General, and Master (optional class: no trophies given). When you pre-register at MotorsportReg.com, we will add you to the rally mailing list so that we can send you the rally rules a few days before the event.


Targa – Time Trial, Rally and Solo Events

November 9-10

This is for registration of the Time Trial, Rally & Autocross

Registration Open

Entry List

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. Add in a BBQ dinner for all Targa competitors as well as any other interested Texas Region members/friends and you have a Texas Region sized motorsports experience!

A Targa is an event where one team car is run in all competitions. That car must be road legal (registered) and run on the same 200 (or higher) treadwear tires for all 3 competitions. We will also offer a Towed Car/Open Tire class for all competitors whose competition car is not registered for the street or they do not want to be restricted to 200 TW tires.

The Texas Targa will have 5 classes. Each team (except experiential) will earn points in each event towards the overall trophies.

Experiential: For teams that just want to experience Targa but are not interested in competition. Experiential teams will get as much seat time as the competition drivers

Novice – For teams with experience in only one type of discipline (Autocross, Rally or Time Trials) or less.

Intermediate – For teams with experience in two or three disciplines (Autocross, Rally or Time Trials)

Advanced – For teams where one or more team members has been a class or National champion any of the disciplines (Autocross, Rally or Time Trials)

Towed Vehicle/Open Tire: In this class you may use a different competition car for the road rally. You also may run any tires allowed for your class in Time Trials and Solo (autocross).

There are two entry levels.

Tier 1 ($200/vehicle) –Price includes 1 entry for vehicle into Autocross, Rally, and Time Trials, and 2 participant dinners.

Tier 2 ($400/team): Price includes 2 entries for drivers into Autocross and time trials, 1 entry into Rally, and 2 participant dinners. Only 1 vehicle will be scored, but the 2nd entry per team may be used for a 2nd vehicle in Time Trials and Autocross.

Important: Only one Autocross or Time Trials entry will be scored for purposes of the Targa, and this entry must be driven with the registered car. The 2nd entry will be to allow the 2nd driver to get more experience, or to collect points towards Autocross/Time Trials season points standings.

Tickets to the SCCA Social (Dinner only) are also available for $16 per person. This is for visitors, spectators, team crew, and anyone else who wants to join us for an evening of socializing and bench-racing.
