Road Rally Report


“Tri-State Tango” – We will be leaving around 10:30 from the UDF at 2086 North Bend Road, Hebron, KY 41048. Onsite registration will open at 9:30. This is our annual Kentucky event put together by rally master Lee Grimes. This year it will be Kentucky-ish, as there are 2 ferry boat crossings included in the route. Bring an extra $10 for fees. We’ll end at Longnecks also in Hebron. Cost is $25 per car with a $5 discount if at least one team member is an SCCA member.
The May rally had enough participants to have two classes – novice and expert. Bringing home the gold were Gordon & Teresa Benson (expert) and Walt & Dave Fischer (novice). The June rally had fewer participants but had a tie for first. Todd & Jenny Koerner (novices in the May rally), beat out Gordon & Teresa by virtue of drawing the higher playing card. Full results and point standings can be found on the CincySCCA Website.
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.
We are always happy to hear any ideas you have for a fun drive. Contact me to volunteer or if you have questions.
