Tonneau Volume 104, Number 11 T he November 2004 LAND O’LAKES REGION, SPORTS CAR CLUB OF AMERICA Rally is Dead TOPEKA, Kan. (Oct. 5, 2004) – Sports Car Club of America’s Board of Directors voted Monday to discontinue the sanction of its current stage-based rally format, including the ProRally and ClubRally Championships, beginning January 1, 2005 due to increasing risk exposure. “This was a difficult and unfortunate decision to make,” SCCA Board of Directors Chairman Gary Pitts said. “However, from an insurance standpoint, the stage rally format has gotten to the point where it puts the entire Club, its activities and entities under an undue risk.” “We have many SCCA members whose interests lie in rally,” SCCA President and CEO Steve Johnson said. “It is my intent to allow these members the opportunity to rally in the future and continue to access the sport. I am confident we can accomplish this task. “We are in negotiations to transition SCCA’s elements of the stage-based rally activity to Rally America, a longtime partner and participant in the sport of rally.” Unaffected by the decision are SCCA’s RallyCross and RoadRally programs. SCCA began its special stage-format ProRally Championship in 1973. Since then, the ProRally Championship Pre- sented by Hot Wheels has been regarded as the top domestic rally series. The 2004 Championship has one round re- maining, Lake Superior ProRally (LSPR), which will run as scheduled Oct. 22 in Houghton, Mich. Long Live Rally MINNEAPOLIS, MN Oct 6, 2004 - Rally America to Accept Operation of ProRally and ClubRally Championships from SCCA. Rally America has agreed to begin managing the operation of the former SCCA ProRally and SCCA ClubRally cham- pionships in light of the recent business decision made by Sports Car Club of America to discontinue sanctioning of U.S. stage-based rally events beginning January 1, 2005. " I know it was a difficult and controversial business decision SCCA was forced to make," Rally America President Doug Havir said. "They've been the guardians of rally here in the U.S. for a very long time and have advanced the sport to where it is today. Nobody would want to let go of a program they've spent so much time and effort fostering over the decades, but rally is only a small part of their entire portfolio and they had to make a tough decision taking into account the best interests of their entire membership." " It's going to be a challenge to transition the rally program smoothly from the SCCA, but I am supremely confident that Rally America has the resources, including the help of many highly experienced people with a deep rooted passion for the sport, to make it happen. Not only will we have a full rally calendar in 2005, we will strive toward continuing the growth of the sport from the entry level up through the highest tiers of competition. We are all definitely looking forward the opportunity." Rally America, a Minneapolis, Minnesota based corporation, has been providing rally related resources and services to the SCCA and ProRally organizers for the past two years. While no further details have yet been announced, it is ex- pected that more information will be presented at the final round of the 2004 SCCA ProRally Championship Presented by Hot Wheels, the Lake Superior ProRally, October 22 in Houghton, Michigan. 2 The Tonneau - November 2004 BOD of cars there.

ENTRY FEE: $15.00 for SCCA members $20.00 for non members (includes brunch) This rally will be a "Monte Carlo" style rally where you will get EASY route instruc- tions designed to insure that you will not get lost AND you will know at what time you are to get to each of the check points*. You will also know about where each check- point is. All you have to do is arrive at each checkpoint at exactly the correct time. You will be penalized 1 point for each second you are early or late. You can use any means of calculating time/speed/distance stuff but the more sophis- ticated equipment you use, which may give you an advantage, may place you in a dif- ferent class from those using less sophisticated equipment, or no equipment. The Rallymaster will make a determination after everyone registers. There should also be two people in each car, a driver and a navigator. “Equipment” that you should bring includes a clip board, pad of paper, a couple of pencils and a stop watch or watch with a second hand. There will be a “Novice” class (have not run more that 2 rallies in the past 10 years) so experience should not count.
