Exciting 2022 RoadRally Season News!

In 2022, in addition to rallies that we have put on regularly in recent years (e.g., Sweetheart Ride, Tick-Tock, DFW Map, Children’s Book Run), the Texas Region of the Sports Car Club of America (SCCA) will be conducting a series of road rallies and schools designed to introduce rallying to newcomers as well as to refresh and reinforce key concepts for our more experienced rallyists. This “Back-to-Basics” series will consist of four events of progressive challenge level staged over several months. These will be SCCA GTA (Games, Tours, Adventures) Social Rallies, about 45-60 miles and 2 ½ – 3 hours long. We will score them and present awards to the most successful. The objective is to conduct events in accordance with the SCCA Rally Rules, starting with simple rules and instructions. Then each succeeding rally will introduce more advanced topics.

Each rally will be preceded by a virtual school where we will present the rules and instructions for the rally, demonstrate “how-to”, and go through applicable examples. Liz Witt, Rallymaster for the four B2B rallies, will be your lead instructor.

The tentative schedule for the Back-to-Basics (B2B) events is as follows:

B2B #1 – Focus on General Instructions, Route Instructions, Questions

  • Rally School (via Zoom session): January 9th
  • Rally: January 15th

B2B #2 – Focus on Signs and Landmarks

  • Rally School (via Zoom session): March 13th
  • Rally: March 19th

B2B#3 – Focus on Main Road Concepts

  • Rally School (via Zoom session): May 1st
  • Rally: May 7th

B2B#4 – Focus on Roads and Intersections

  • Rally School (via Zoom session): (New Date) July 17th
  • Rally: (New Date) July 23rd

The rally schools will be conducted via Zoom and recorded for later on-demand viewing. After each rally, a packet of materials (General Instructions, Route Instructions, Question and Answer Sheet, Explanation/Critique Sheets) will be made available. This way, if you miss any of the rallies or schools, or only become aware of our program part of the way into the year, you can watch the recording(s) and run the rally(ies) at your convenience (not scored) to get up to speed on covered skills and concepts.

The Back-to-Basics Series will help prepare you for a “course-following” (aka, trap) rally. We plan to conduct a National or Divisional GTA rally in the Fall, a perfect opportunity for putting what you learned into practice!

Additional details will follow as we open up registration for individual events.
