Help us welcome a new event in our RoadRally series: The Targa Road Rally! We will take a tour of Wise and Denton Counties, passing through Slidell, Bolivar, Krum and other out-of-the way places. All roads are paved. As you drive, you will be looking for signs and landmarks, some with surprising answers. It will take a sharp eye to see them all. There will be some course-following challenges in Krum and Denton, so be ready to navigate precisely and avoid the traps. Our Rally Master is John Poulos. Course following elements courtesy of Liz Witt.
A "Targa" is an automotive triathlon where teams of two drivers will compete in threeevents (Time Trials, Road Rally, and Autocross) in the same car over 2 days. Class winnerswill be based on cumulative points for thevehicle, and there will be classes for all experience levels. Additional details on the Targa can be found at https://www.texasscca.org/rally/.
You can enter this rally either as a standalone event (rally only) or as part of the Targa. If you choose to just sign up for the rally, go to https://www.motorsportreg.com/events...adrally-406463 . If you decide to enter the Targa, there is a separate registration process and site (https://www.motorsportreg.com/events...a-texas-353188), and you will automatically be registered for the rally. There is no need to register in both places. You will be scored and ranked under both Rally and Targa rules and classifications.
