Time-Speed-Distance RoadRally
April 24, 2022
 
The 2022 Second Hand Roads Time-Speed-Distance RoadRally was successfully conducted on April 24. Twenty-Seven Teams ran the rally using the Richta App in order to be scored and one team ran the event for fun, for a total of twenty-eight teams. The rally had over 45 scored TSD controls and the route instructions provided mileage and 'Car Zero Time' to each instructions to help the team stay on time and on-course. The rally was novice friendly, as you can see from the scores, the top 4 teams ran in the Novice Class. Several teams were able to score a perfect 'Zero' at controls. The region would like to thank Satish Gopalkrishnan and Savera D'Souza for all the work they did as joint Rallymasters.

The event is a straightforward Time-Speed-Distance rally that can be driven in 3 hours, including a 20-minute break for a snack in Bridgeville, NJ. You will be scored on how well you can stay 'on-time'. No tricky instructions or dirt roads.

A great introduction to the sport of Car Road Rallying

We will have over 25 timed checkpoints. You just have to follow the route instructions and maintain the average speeds listed in the instructions. The speeds will all be at or below the posted speed limits.

Richta's GPS / Smartphone Timing will be utilized

Competitor - Richta GPS Checkpoints App downloaded before Registration; it is a free download and available for both Apple and Android.

You will be timed as you pass each Checkpoint and your score will be displayed on your Smartphone as you pass the location. We will start off by telling you the exact mileage/landmark and time to pass the 1st set of Checkpoints. In the next section we will tell you the exact mileage/landmark to the controls, but not the time to arrive. In the 3rd section we will tell you the landmark for the checkpoints but not the mileage and in the last section we will tell you when one is coming up but not the landmark, so you can get a real feel of TSDing, by trying to stay 'on time - all the time'.

Each checkpoint will be timed to the second and there will be a short break halfway through the route. During the break, event volunteers will be there to address any questions you might have to help you on the rest of the rally.

Starting location: Route 46 Subaru in Hackettstown, NJ.
Registration 10:00AM - First Car Off 11:01AM
