RoadRally Report

Happy New Year! Get ready for a new season of Road Rallies. There are still plenty of roads in the Tri-State area not yet explored. We will bring you some new ones and probably mix in some old favorites.

Mark these tentative dates on your calendar: April 25, May 30, July 11, August 29, October 3 & November 7. Rally Masters can choose from these dates (or suggest a new date). New Rally Masters are encouraged to join in and bring new roads and ideas to our group. Ample help is available to assist with set-up, so don’t be intimidated.

This season, along with our traditional routes & questions format, a foolproof drive (with mileages of turns and without questions) will be available for those wanting to enjoy the scenic routes we set up without the competitive aspect. This will be a Rally Trek set-up which is more akin to what car clubs tend to offer. Gather up your fellow car enthusiasts and come join us this season.

RoadRally Report

The final rally of the year brought out 8 teams on a beautiful fall day. First timers Angie Taylor and Duncan Latta brought home first place honors. Many Warren County cemeteries were visited, and the Little Miami River was crisscrossed multiple times. Complete results, as well as the final points standings, are available on the cincyscca.com website.

Beginning with the 2020 season. A foolproof drive (with mileages of turns and without questions) will be available for those wanting to enjoy the scenic routes we set up without the competitive aspect. We expect to offer 6 rallies in 2020, but scheduling is still in process. Check back after the first of the year for the dates to block out on your calendar!

We are always happy to hear any ideas you have for a fun drive. Contact me to volunteer or if you have questions.

Road Rally Report

The last rally of the season is Saturday, November 2. We will depart the Mason-Montgomery Road Frisch’s (right at the exit off I-71) around 10:30. This is a defined route event, with some cemetery stops to search for answers. Don’t be afraid – most answers can be found from your car. The weather looks to be dry and the leaves will be beautiful for this trek that includes several sections along the Little Miami River. There will be a special set of (foolproof) instructions without questions to allow those just looking for a nice drive, without the competition factor, to join us (reduced rate to cover insurance). Come enjoy this last outing and find your rally story.

Road Rally Report

Saturday was the day to learn some very interesting Cincinnati Chili History.
Personally, Skyline is my go-to comfort food, having grown up downwind of the first Skyline location in the city. But you didn’t have to eat it to be successful on the rally. All that was required was a drive-by of several chili locations and maybe a pause in the parking lot to answer some questions.
Jim Knepper and his former, Nancy, took first but graciously passed the awards on to second place rally newbies, Kyle and Paula Zepernick.

The last rally of the season is Saturday, November 2. Details are not available yet, but since it will be the weekend after Halloween, something spooky is in the works. This will likely be a defined route event, potentially with stops for some searching for answers. Watch for a Facebook post or set a reminder to check cincyscca.motorsportreg.com around October 21 to find more details.

Road Rally Report

Tri-State Tango” is now in the books. We needed to postpone it due to schedule confusion, but it was well worth the wait. Eight teams competed, divided into Novice and Experienced divisions. Taking the Experienced class was the team of Gordon & Teresa Benson, with Walt & David Fischer, new graduates to the class, right on their heels. Mike & Stephanie Spatz, running their last novice class eligible rally, took first, with newcomers Jeff Fogle & Lillian Russell a close second. Complete results and Series Point standings are available on the Cincy SCCA website.

The next rally is September 28. Final details are being ironed out but just a hint at the theme – Chili. Cincinnati Chili. Natives of the Queen City, and even transplants, may be fans, but how much of the history of our inimitable 3-way do you know? Prepare to find out. Registration will open as soon as the starting location is confirmed. Watch for a Facebook post or set a reminder to check cincyscca.motorsportreg.com around September 12 to find more details.
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, and/or exceeding the measured mileage. Low score wins. Awards are presented for each event and points are assigned based on finishing position to determine a series champion.

REGISTRATION WILL BE OPEN MONDAY FOR THE RALLY ON JULY 27.

“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.
