The Champaign County Sports Car Club is adding a new dimension to their road rally fun. Novice rallyists can participate in an Adventure Class where the emphasis is to follow the course and answer a series of questions. Of course novices can also opt just to stick with the normal timed classes like everyone else. With over 50 miles of rally, some crazy stuff, and only concrete and asphalt roads there is plenty to keep everyone smiling. Bring your buddy, bring your friend, bring your date, or bring anyone else you can grab ahold of and come on out to the newest vehicle and motorcycle enthusiast meeting spot in town to join in on the fun. You can even come alone and team up with someone during registration. Please study the rally’s General Instructions before coming if you can. As always, spouses and friends who don’t run the rally are welcome to come to the Tire Barn after it to listen to participants’ tall tales about all the adversities (and possibly some mistakes) they overcame to complete the event.
Registration Info and Minor Waiver
The entry fee will be $20.00 per team. So that the rallymaster will know about how many cars to expect you are encouraged to preregister on CCSCC’s Online Registration System and/or to post your intention to come on the CICEnet.net thread for the rally. Minors need a completed Parental Consent form signed by a parent or legal guardian. Forms must be printed in color or can be obtained at registration. Participants should try to arrive close to the time registration opens so they will have time to certify that the driver’s insurance meets the appropriate state’s standards, that the driver has a valid license, that the rally vehicle is being used with the permission of the owner, is in safe operating condition, is on the road legally, and that all its operational items such as lights, turn signals, brakes, horn, tires, mirrors, seat belts, windshield wipers and windshield washer are in proper working order. Early arrival also gives participants time to review the rally’s general rules and to talk to other rally participants. This last is especially important for those who have never run a rally before.
Don’t Have a Driver or Navigator?
If you don’t have a partner to drive or navigate for you just come by yourself. At almost every rally there are folks who come alone then team up with someone else to run the event. If you are lucky you’ll have a chance to team up with someone who has some rally experience. Sometimes that increases your chances of winning a trophy. If you’re only slightly less lucky you’ll get to run with someone who has no rally experience and have twice the fun as you discover what rallying is all about. At the very worst (which almost never happens) there will be no one to partner with and you will get the chance to work some of the checkpoints and see how everyone is doing as the event progresses.
