On my trip to Spain I acquired 2 MiRallyGPS boxes. These can be used in lieu of the Crono app. This is for those that don't want to run an app on their smart phone. The Crono device has a rechargeable battery that lasts for one day. It can also be plugged in.
Update! We now have 10 more for a total of 12.
Canceled until further Notice - Monthly Meetings are at Giordono's in Richfield at 7PM. It's OK to arrive early BTW.
All of the rallies now have links to their RBK, ASRs and Roadbook PDF files online so you can run them on your own for practice.
To download an RBK file, it must be done from your mobile device (phone or tablet). With iOS 13 and Android, files now get downloaded to your Downloads folder. Once there you can load them via the folder icon in Rabbit.
- Do I need a helmet? No
- Do I need a navigator? Yes
- Do I need Special Equipment? Sort of. Timing is done by GPS tracking so you need to have a device (iphone or Android) to record and transmit your location. If you don't have a smartphone we now have a few devices that will do the timing.
- Do you need a spectial car? No, any street legal vehicle is welcome.
- Does each person need to pay? No, the fee is for the car, not individuals.

For a nominal entry fee and almost no risk to car, life, or limb you get to drive the most scenic roads in the area and compete on the basis of precision driving and navigation. You are a team competing not based on the amount of muscle in your car, but on the sharpness of your minds and driving skill. But most of all, it’s fun.
Road Rallying is very different from most motor sports. Each car is given a set of written instructions and sent off at intervals on public roads. Each team tries to follow the course as well as maintain a given average speed. Sprinkled around the course are checkpoints where your arrival time is clocked. You are given a score based on how close you come to the ideal time. A new development is the use of GPS timed controls that time you as you pass by. This reduces the need for workers and opens up new possibilities.
Once you understand the basics there are many apps available for both iOS and Android devices for little or no cost. Search for road rally, tsd rally, regularity rally.
