Son of Sno*Drift Rally Coming On January 12, 2013

One of the longer running winter rallies in the USA is the Son of Sno*Drift.  I recently got an announcement about this rally which I am including in this post.  I competed in this rally a couple of years ago and enjoyed it very much.  Below the announcement, I have attached a pdf file of the entry form.

Son of Sno*Drift XV

A Winter Rally (we hope)

Saturday, January 12th, 2013

Son of Sno*Drift is intended to be a winter rally.  As such, it is hoped that the challenges of winter driving will be a part of the fun.  Son of Sno*Drift is a straightforward Time, Speed, Distance (TSD) Road Rally with simple instructions and no traps.  NOVICES Welcome!

Roads used on Son of Sno*Drift will be primarily unpaved and will run within Oakland, Livingston, Washtenaw and Jackson counties.  Total distance will be approximately 175 miles with two breaks.  Mileages will be provided with each instruction, which will be by tulip diagram and written description.

With very few exceptions, this rally will be run to the SCCA tour rally rules.  This event will count toward the Detroit Region and Great Lakes Division SCCA Road Rally championships.

Awards will be presented   to the first and second place teams in each of the following classes (plus third   place Novice):E (Equipped) – unlimited equipment.L (Limited) – calibratible odometer   and any calculating device (which does not take input from the odometer).S (Stock) – stock odometer and any   non-programmable calculator.N (Novice) – any team where the total   number of rallies entered by the two members of the team does not exceed six   (6); and equipment is restricted to that of the Stock class.

Start/ Finish: Mexico Lindo restaurant in Waterford, Michigan.  Mexico Lindo is located on M-59 (Highland Rd) just west of Airport Rd, on the south side.  (6225 Highland Rd. (248) 666-3460).

Son of Sno*Drift is not to be confused with the “Sno*Drift“ Performance Rally, which is presented by Rally America.  Son of Sno*Drift is expected to be a challenge to driver, navigator and vehicle.  Suitable tires and nighttime driving lights are recommended.  Snow extraction equipment is also a wise idea.  This should include, warning triangle(s), tow strap, shovel, etc.
