The CLEAR BLUE SKY RALLY will be held on Saturday, October 20, 2018. This is a National Championship SCCA GTA road rally, which will show off some pretty roads in Collin and Grayson Counties, Texas. There will be course-following tests, designed to see how well you can follow the rules. All are carefully looped so you do not get lost if you err. You will be asked about signs and landmarks that you see to determine if you have done the “traps” correctly. The start: Holiday Inn & Suites McKinney, 3220 Craig Dr., McKinney, TX 75070. Registration will be open from 8:00am to 9:00am. The Novice meeting & Safety Briefing will be at 9:10am. The start time is 9:30 am plus your car number. Prepare for 125 miles, ~6 hours. The finish: a restaurant about 2 blocks from the hotel.
This will be a GTA (fun run) road rally. A clipboard and pencil is all you need. All roads are paved. Vehicles: Sports Cars, Family Cars, Classic Cars, Antiques, anything with 4 wheels that’s street legal is OK in this Rally. Note: speed is not a factor. At least two people old enough to read are required in each car; if you will have a minor child (<18) in the car, see instructions at msreg.com/cbs18.
There are four classes: First-timer, Novice (3 rally trophies or less), General, and Master (an optional class: no trophies). Entry fee: $25.00 ($5 discount for SCCA Members). You must pay with registration at msreg.com/cbs18....$5.00 late fee if not preregistered. The Rallymaster is Liz Witt, a veteran of the famous Heart of Dixie trap rally. The challenge is to follow a prescribed course at legal speeds, and to read signs and landmarks along the route to find answers to questions given to you. It is not a contest of speed or racing. Registrants will be emailed the rally rules two weeks before the event, so we encourage entrants to pre-register soon, to allow time to review the rules.
