There will be snow, there will be back roads and it will be dark. Mark your calendars for the first annual, Cheese Freeze time-speed-distance road rally put on by Wisconsin non-profit, Cheese Wheel Inc. Benefiting the  ALS Association and the Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin, this one-day rally is set to take place the first weekend of February.

Bring out your ride and join in on the fun!f you’ve never done a time-speed-distance rally, this is your chance. If you’ve already had the joy of participating in an adrenaline-filled TSD rally, try out this snow-filled night time event.

What is a TSD rally?Regularity rallying, also known as TSD rallying (Time Speed Distance), is a form of motor sport  usually conducted on public roads but sometimes including off-road and track sections. The object of these rallies is to maintain precise times and precise average speeds on various segments of a predefined route. Each team usually consists of an amateur driver and navigator. Teams usually start a regularity rally at fixed intervals creating a field that is spread along the route.” Thanks Wikipedia. 

Where is it? The launch location will be in/around the Wisconsin Dells area (possibly in nearby Reedsburg or Baraboo). There will be three to four timed states throughout some of the best driving roads in scenic, rural West/Southwestern Wisconsin.

When is it? Saturday, February 1, 2014. First car off the line at 2pm and the rally wraps up at 10pm. Yes this will be a night-time driving event.

How much does it cost? Is it expensive? Nope! $50 total ($25 per car registration + a $25 donation to the two benefitting charities)

Can I bring a navigator or co-driver? Absolutely! Recruit your best friend, sibling, significant other or even just go solo for more of a challenge!

What kind of vehicles are welcome? Anything with wheels and an engine! It could be a Ural motorcycle, a rear-wheel-drive sports car, your daily driver or an off-road, snow-slayer 4×4 beast.

    Do I get extra points for attempting to do it in a 30 year old Italian roadster?

      Only if you find some guy from MN to be your co-driver 😀 Too bad February will still be too cold to enjoy the Fiat.
