Default Clear Blue Sky Rally announced

CLEAR BLUE SKY RALLY

This road rally will show off some pretty roads in Grayson County, and a few in Collin County as well. To keep you from getting bored on this fun trip, there will be a few course-following tests, designed to see how well you can follow the rules, and to keep you from getting lost if you go the wrong way. Signs and landmarks that you find will tell us which way you went.

Rally Day: Saturday, July 13, 2013
Starting Place: Brandon Tomes Subaru, 1100 S. Central Expy. in McKinney, Texas, 75070
Registration: 9:00am to 9:45am on Rally Day
Novice meeting: 9:45am
Cars leave the start: 10:00am plus your car number
Length: 120 miles (~3 hours)
Finish: El Pueblo Restaurant, 1909 Texoma Pkwy, Sherman TX, 75090
Rally type: GTA (fun run). A clipboard and pencil is all you need
Route: paved roads in Grayson County, and a few in Collin county
Vehicles: Sports Cars, Family Cars, Classic Cars, Antiques, Hot Rods, Cruisers, anything with 4 wheels that’s street legal is OK in this Rally. Note: "speed" is not a factor. Cars built before 1950 get a little extra time. Note: Subaru has won SCCA's Rally Manufacturer of the Year award for the last several years.
Rally Fee: $20.00 for SCCA Members: $25.00 for non-members. $5.00 late fee if not preregistered at motorsportReg.com .
Four classes: First Timer, Novice (<3 rally trophies), General, and Master.
Rally Master: Liz Witt

Special offer: the first ten Subarus entered will have their entry fee paid by Brandon Tomes Subaru.

All on paved roads, at legal speeds, with plenty of entertainment for you and a friend!

You will want to do online registration (at http://msreg.us/CBS13msr) because then you will be emailed the rally rules a few days before the event.

Join us!

...getting closer... Last I checked, there are only 8 Subarus registered, which means 2 people can still get in for free. It will be a blast!

Well, actually there are only 7 Subarus entered. A driver and navigator both preregistered, not knowing that the other was doing it. So motorsportReg thinks they represent two cars, but it's really only one. I have marked the navigator as "cancelled," so that they now show the correct number of entries.

Only seven!! I want the sponsor to be thrilled with his ten Subarus. Let's have three more. You know, they don't have to be WRXs to enter....

By the way, a new twist to this event is the use of photos to help you find some of the turns. I have been out on the course, and it works very well.

I've got zero points, thanks for bringing it up, jerk. But all that's about to change.

Seriously, if we want to keep a sponsor, we need to represent. We need to get some more Subarus out!

Seventeen cars are already entered in the Clear Blue Sky Rally, including seven Subarus. It looks like we will have about 40 entrants. We also have one or more: BMW, Mustang, Lancia Beta, Mazda3, Mini, Toyota, and VW. So far Subaru is the only marque with enough cars to form a team; You could even form two teams!

18 entries, 8 Subarus!

If you want to run the rally, but cannot do it on Saturday July 13, why not run it free on another day? We need a pre-check team to run the event to check for errors. You pick the day. Contact me at rally@texasscca.org.

Still only seven Subarus! Three more of you could get a free entry, courtesy of Brandon Tomes Subaru.

Twenty-nine (29) cars entered as of this evening. Looks like 40 is likely. This is one you don't want to miss.

At the moment, Subaru, MINI (4), Chevrolet (3), and Honda (3) will have teams. Heck, Subaru could have TWO teams!

Sounds like it might be kinda complicated to me... active questions is never a good sign.
Also, I'm pretty sure the answer to #1 is Lowry Creek City Limit... lol. Don't quote me on that tho.

Still only 7 Subarus....and one of them is an SCCA member, so he might not have come to the event through TXIC.

Preregistration closes at 6pm tomorrow. Don't wait too long.

We will have over 40 cars entered, the biggest entry since the first Clear Blue Sky four years ago.

Unless I hear differently, all 7 Subarus will be in the "Amateur Boxers" team. There will also be teams from Ford (Mustangs), Chevrolet (Camaros), Honda, Mazda, and Mini.

We are ready....are you?

Awesome rally, with great turnout! Over 50 cars. Way to go Amateur Boxers, we had more Subarus than any other kind of car. Nicely done, everyone! I can't wait for the next one!

This looks like so much fun, and I've never done anything like it.

Has anyone that did it reported back? What was it like?

EDIT:
Also, are they holding another one anytime soon?
