    Tulip Time Rally!

    A fun road rally will be held on May 27, 2017. It will start in Mesquite, and end in McKinney, TX. We will present our annual Tulip Time Rally, named for the spring flower and the "Tulip" instructions that we will be using.

    Most of the rally will be on roads we have not used in years, if at all. Some of them are scenic and/or curvy, and some of them have plenty of bluebonnets along the way, at least they do at the moment.

    Online registration is open. Go to msreg.com/TTR17msr for more detailed information on the event. To reserve a spot, page down and click on "Continue", and follow the instructions. Any 4-wheel, street-legal car is welcome. There must be two people old enough to read, as driver and navigator; other passengers are allowed.

    Your score will come mainly from answers to questions about signs you see along the route. As they say, the questions are easy, but the answers, not so much!

    Marques already represented are Lincoln, Jaguar, Mini, Mitsubishi, Mustang, Scion, and Chevrolet (Silverado and Corvette).

We give you plenty of funny signs to find (or funny questions about ordinary signs that you find), and some good driving roads, that can still be fun at the speed limit. If the speed limit is 45, and you have curve warnings set to 20MPH, can't you have fun? Our course is approved by a licensed Rally Safety Steward, so you know it's safe. Join us!

    There are now sixteen cars entered in the rally. This far out, I estimate about 35 cars by rally day. Cars included are Chevy Corvette, Cruze and Silverado, Chrysler, Fiat Abarth, Ford Mustang, Honda(2), Jaguar XK8, Lincoln, Mazda Miata (2), Mini Cooper S, Mitsubishi, Scion, and Volvo. The weather is predicted to be mostly sunny and 85 degrees. The long-distance kudos up to this point go to the car from Rio Vista, TX, about 70 miles from the start.
