Double Divisional Road Rallies August 27-28

June 26, 2016

 

27–28 August 2016
Gateway Double-Divisional RoadRallyTM Weekend
Route 66 Ramble (Tour)
Scenic Byways (Tour)
Please join us!

OUR OBJECTIVE

To offer you, the competitor, an SCCA divisional RoadRally weekend that will provide two days of enjoyable sports-car rallying, roads, and scenery in the Illinois portion of the St. Louis metropolitan region. We will run our divisional rallies in accordance with the SCCA’s RoadRally Rules, 2016 Edition, (available online in the rally section at scca.org) as amended by our General Instructions for the weekend.

Rallymasters Ron Ferris and Jim Heine have designed each rally with the beginning/occasional rally team in mind. Ron’s third edition of Scenic Byways on Sunday, Aug. 28, will incorporate the rural roads and country lanes of Monroe and St. Clair counties in southwestern Illinois, while Jim’s second edition of Route 66 Ramble (Saturday, Aug. 27) will feature historic portions of the Mother Road that pass through Macoupin and Madison counties in Illinois.

The Route 66 Ramble will be a Monte-Carlo-style event with passage controls (offering we believe, a good introduction to rallying for rookie/novice teams), while Scenic Byways will advance the introductory process one step by employing traditional open controls plus (perhaps) an occasional DIYC. Mostly, average speeds for the weekend will be moderate.
