Road Rally Report

The June event, The 222 Shuffle, brought out 8 teams to drive the beautiful roads of Clermont County. The results are listed below.

The teams of Jim Knepper & newcomer David Griggs along with Chris Ross & John Garrett finished with the fewest penalty points and tied for first place. Finishing just one point behind, in a three-way tie were Gordon & Teresa Benson, Steve & Jacob Munday, and Derek & Kate Hart. Tony & Dawn Brown, John & Donna Hart and Aaron & Micah Gastrich followed closely behind. This one was a real squeaker with no team missing more than two questions and the tie-breaker question making the difference.

REGISTRATION IS OPEN FOR THE JULY 21st EVENT, “Kentucky Ramble”.
We will be starting from the Frisch’s in Highland Heights, Kentucky. Come join us. Lee Grimes always finds the best of the winding Kentucky roads! Drivers and Navigators sign up on-line. Visit cincyscca.motorsportreg.com for links to the registration pages for all the Cincinnati Region events. If you need to be paired up with a running partner, let us know and we’ll do our best. Our rallies always end at a location disclosed before you start your drive and is always a family friendly place with food and adult beverages available. Competition promises to be fierce for the 2018 Series Championship.

For those new to the sport, Road Rallies are run on public roads at legal (sometimes brisk) speeds on a variety of roads. Route instructions can be challenging but if you are careful you will NOT get lost. Any street licensed vehicle capable of accommodating a driver and a navigator who can communicate safely (so probably not a motorcycle) from a smart car to a pickup truck are eligible and kids are welcome. Penalty points are given for incorrect answers to questions that can be answered by making observations along the route. Low score wins. Awards are presented for each event and points are assigned based on finishing position to determine a series champion.

The schedule as it now stands is as follows:

Date Rally Master
April 14 EB Lunken
May 26 Jim Knepper
June 16 Colleen Cabe
July 21 Lee Grimes
August 25 Jim Wiles
October 6 Gordon Benson
November 3 TBD

 

One more date is still available if you’d like to set up a rally. Assistance can be provided. We are always happy to hear any ideas you have for a fun drive. Contact me to volunteer or if you have questions.
