Default Clear Blue Sky Rally

The Clear Blue Sky Rally is back, the second event in the 2012 Texas Region Rally Championship Series. Starting and ending in McKinney, we will explore the most scenic, twisty back country roads (all paved) of Collin County. Along the way weíll visit the towns of Melissa, established in 1851, Anna, in 1867 and the ďoldest town in Collin CountyĒ, Weston, settled in the 1840ís. There will be a few course following problems to keep you on your toes and some fun clues for the questions you will answer along the way.

The rally will take place on Saturday, July 14, starting and ending at Spring Creek Barbeque, 1993 North Central Expressway (NW corner with Highway 380) McKinney, TX 75070. Registration/Check-In will be from 8:45 to 9:30 am. The Safety Briefing will be at 9:35 am, and an important Rally School will be held from 9:40 to 10:15 am.

Starting Time, First Car: 10:30 am; Finish Time, First Car: 2:30 pm, estimated

Route: Itís a secret, of course, but expect to drive on scenic back roads

Rally Fee: $30.00 -- SCCA Members: $20.00 -- $5 late fee if not preregistered

Preregistration is at tinyurl.com/CBS12msr .

Itís back to the course-following rallies of a couple of years ago. Some of you claimed to be getting bored with the super-easy courses of last year. But donít worry about getting lost. If you make the mistakes we expect, you will drive right back on course without ever knowing you were off-course. This is a common challenge among SCCA rallies, and lots of people think itís loads of fun.

Street legal car. That's it. This is not a speed event.

No. You are not timed to the second at checkpoints. There is an overall time limit, so we don't have to wait for you at the end, but the time is ample.

Would you be interested in a TSD rally?

Don't finish too early, or you'll get disqualified like I did last time!

Sure. Any 3 cars can form a team. Usually, there are 3 cars from the same manufacturer, but we don't really care. And it doesn't matter what class you are in. Teams compete for bragging rights, not a trophy (otherwise we would need complex rules to make sure the competition was completely fair). If there are 4 of you, we will score the top 3 for the Team award.

One year Minis held the top spot for most of the season...another year it was Mazda.

Put your team name in the online registration form, but we can easily adjust that at check-in in McKinney.

Subaru was named "Manufacturer of the Year" for 2011, and most of the championship entrants in Subarus were in WRXs. And this is not just a "car count" award: each Subaru was given the same points as the driver and navigator got for each placing in an event, and Subaru came out on top. So you already have a tiny bit of an advantage.

Number 2 Subaru just preregistered. It's an Outback, so I don't know if he is a TXIC member. But any 3 Subarus can form a team, if you can't get three from this group.
