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.
