Basic measurements and possible checkpoint locations have been determined for the Second Running of the Area 51 Road Rally.   This TOUR style timed rally will cover a course of about 130 miles with about 80% of the course being paved.   
There will be two classes like last year.   The STANDARD CLASS will be for two person teams in which the driver ONLY drives and the navigator ONLY navigates.   
The TWO-DRIVER CLASS says it all.   BOTH team members get their turn behind the wheel.   Strategy will certainly come into play in this class as there are four paved legs and four unpaved legs.
There will be two specialty awards in addition to the class winner awards.   The team, regardless of class, that scores the best on the paved legs will win the LOUDNESS of the LAMS or (LOL) AWARD.   The team, regardless of class, that scores the best on the unpaved legs will win the MASTER of the MARBLES or (MOM) AWARD.
Entry fee will probably be $30 per team.   There will be a small number of workers which will FORCE a limit of twenty teams.
Just as last year, there will be cattle guards, low water crossings, washes, livestock on the roadway and their associated agricultural deposits to contend with.   
NEW this year, the checkpoints will NOT be shown in the instructions.   
INSTEAD, every timed instruction will have an official time and an official mileage.   The checkpoint location will have the same information.   There will be a false instruction inserted where the word checkpoint was inserted last year.   There will also be some additional false instructions afterward to disguise the true checkpoint location.   You will not be able to go within a short distance from a known checkpoint and wait for your time to leave.   Each team must now rally each leg as if every timed instruction is a potential checkpoint.
Feel free to ask any questions about this event.   I will answer them the best I can without destroying the integrity of the rally.

The team of Jeff Maize, Michael Tritt and Jason Baney accepted the challenge of the Eagle Eye Road Rally on Saturday, February 3rd.    The three were instructed in a 100.5 rally school (not quite 101) earlier in the day.   They learned their lessons well and reported no problems other than an odometer that was "way off" due to non-stock wheels and tires.  The short course took just over an hour to run and challenged them to locate all of the stop signs, traffic lights and yield signs along the route.   Each sign was given a point amount.   The team simply totaled those to get a partial total for signage.   It was partial because they also had to total the number of feet of the overhead clearance signs along the route.   The signage total and the clearance total were added together for the "observance" total.    The other part of the score was the measuring of the course.   Despite the odometer error, the team guessed within a half of a mile of the actual distance measured by the rallymaster.   The event was close enough to Valentine's Day that the prizes were a choice of various chocolate treats.

The next event will be the second running of THE AREA 51 RALLY.   This event is unique as it has two classes.   One class will have the standard driver/navigator set up where the driver only drives and the navigator only navigates.   The other class offers the possibility of the two team members "swapping seats".   There will be four paved legs and four unpaved or mixed surface legs it appears at this time.   The paved legs will have a special prize for the team, regardless of class, that scores the best on them.   This prize will be the Loudness Of the Lams (LOL) prize.   The unpaved or mixed legs will also have a special prize for the team, regardless of class, that scores the best on them.   This prize will be the Master Of the Marbles (MOM) prize.   The date for THE AREA 51 RALLY will be announced in the next few days.   The start and finish will be in the Skiatook area.

Is anyone still on here?  Huh

Anyone know if Billy still does differential work, and if so - anyone have his number? I have an "issue" with the Bullitt, and no real place to make a mess of it here......

Alternately, if you're seeing this Billy, give me a call or text at 479.64O/51o8 or an email at the.airhawk@gmail.com

Ranks a Rot, Raggy!

   Do you like to write? You could help cover the Solo Nationals for SportsCar Magazine, and it counts as your worker credit.
   The ideal situation is drivers who plan to be there for all four days of Nationals. You can cover classes on the days you do NOT run, leaving you free to focus on your competition on your run days. But anyone who wishes to apply is encouraged to do so, including drivers just there for the two days they run.
   No one should have to write up more than two classes or cover classes in more than two heats (Open and Ladies are considered one class for story purposes). The basic job is to be there when the classes are running, talk to a couple of the key players, then write a story of about 500 words (likely after you get home).
   I’m not looking for pro-level writing talent, I seek good observers -- the eyes and ears of the reporters are what is most valuable. As editor my job is to make your story look good.
   If you can be part of the crew this year, please send me a direct e-mail (rocky@spitfire4.com) telling me:
1. Your name
2. Mailing address
3. Phone numbers (home, work, cell)
4. e-mail address
5. Your class, days you run [see schedule below]
6. What days you plan to arrive/leave Lincoln
7. Any preferences for classes you'd like to cover
8. Second choice for event work assignment in case I can't use you as a writer.
   I’ll reply confirming I got your e-mail, then you’ll hear from me next after Aug. 17 when the run/work order comes out, which is when I can make the story assignments.
   Registration is open now at https://www.scca.com/events/1987148-2017-tire-rack-scca-solo-nationals -- click “Online Registration.” When you reach “Work Preference” scroll down to “Other” and write in “SportsCar Writer.”
   If you've already sent your entry and checked off some other worker preference, just let me know what you checked. I can get it changed.
   Hope to hear from you soon!
