                               South Jersey Region – Sports Car Club of America
Have you ever thought about running a rally, but said “They’re too hard, I’ll just get lost.” Well then Witch
Way to Salem? may be the event for you. You will be provided a mileage to every turn. Or, did you say “I
don’t like doing a lot of calculations.” Again, Witch Way to Salem? may be the event for you. We’ll give you
the perfect time to each checkpoint, all you have to do is be there at that time. Witch Way to Salem? is a Monte
Carlo style rally whose competitive portion is approximately 100 miles long. Only paved roads will be used.
“Sounds too simple, what’s the catch?” you say. Not really a catch, but you can’t stop in sight of a checkpoint.
What many people do is run to a point a half mile before the next checkpoint, then leave a minute early and run
in at 30 mph. The general instructions will provide some other helpful hints including a way to arrive
approximately on time with almost no calculation. Along the way we’ll also point out some historical sites and
other points of interest, so if you don’t feel in a competitive mood and would just like to take a Sunday drive,
you are welcome as well. The rally is part of the 2005 SCCA Mid-Atlantic Rally Championship Series.
