SoCal Friday Night Road Rally 6/7/13 (Santa Clarita)

Santa Monica Sports Car Club/SCCA presents


A TSD road rally

Friday, June 7, 2013

Do you love driving and the challenge of friendly competition? Want to take the first step in learning how to work with a navigator for performance rallying or "Targa"-type events? Hungry to tackle some of the most exciting "driver's" roads in Southern California? THE SANTA MONICA SPORTS CAR CLUB WANTS YOU!

Join us for our monthly First Friday Niter road rally! This month, we’re heading to the canyon and desert roads of Santa Clarita and Acton for a moderate navigational challenge.

Just bring your street-legal car, a navigator, a pen, a flashlight, a watch that can be synchronized with official rally time, and $15 per car for entry fees ($10 for SCCA members.) We'll give you a set of route instructions. The object of the rally is to follow the instructions at assigned average speeds in order to arrive at checkpoints exactly on time (to the hundredth of a minute.) And by the way: you won't know the location of the checkpoints until you get there. And it's dark.

(Important: a TSD rally is not a race. We're sanctioned by the SCCA and run on public paved roads, so assigned speeds are within posted speed limits. BUT, the roads are usually challenging and fun to drive, and the pressure of staying on time leads to a very exciting experience.)

We award trophies in four classes of competition, based on equipment and experience. If you're a novice, you'll run in your own special class so you don't have to go up against the experts. (If you want to use GPS or any particular smartphone app, please feel free!)

REGISTRATION AND RALLY START LOCATION: Bank of America rear parking lot, 15300 Devonshire Street in Mission Hills (corner of Sepulveda) near the 405/118 interchange. Registration opens at 7 p.m., beginners meeting at 7:40, first car off at 8:01.

MERCEDES PILOTS: We award "marque" trophies on nights when we get five or more entries representing a particular make or model, so if you're part of a club or meet-up group, bring your might just get your own special class.

FOR MORE INFO: Visit, or check out the Santa Monica Sports Car Club Facebook page. More questions? Post 'em here or PM me. Hope to see you on the 7th!
