You must begin the run by 1pm, no instructions will be handed out after 1pm.  Completed instructions with driver/navigator names and car number are to be returned to the Registration Desk no later than 4:30pm.  This event qualifies as a moving event.

TSD Rallye

 

Location:  Depart Hotel Portico 

Date/Time:  9:00am – 4:30pm Wednesday and Thursday

 

The  “Oklahoma Gunslinger and Route 66 Rallye” is a wonderful trip through the Oklahoma country side.  You will motor past many central Oklahoma historic landmarks and cruise down approximately 30 miles of “America’s Main Street”.  The option to drive on a section of original Route 66 concrete, tour the Round Barn, visit “Pops” and other attractions is available in the new “Side Trip” procedure. Also new this year is a “Touring Class“ where non-serious rallye teams can simply follow the course, visit attractions, take photos and enjoy the ride. “Novice” and ”Overall” Class entrants will continue competing for trophies and the Carolinas and Ken Richardson Cups in a more traditional TSD rallye format. The Route is 135 miles with many sights and amenities along the way.  Do not be daunted by the distance, the routing is simple, directions plentiful, and it should take 3 to 4 hours to drive depending upon your Class and “Side Trips” taken.  You may leave as early as 9:30 am but not later than 12:00 pm to ensure your return by 4:30 PM.  This event qualifies as a moving event. For more information look for the “Oklahoma Gunslinger and Route 66 Rallye” fact sheet at the Registration Desk.

Autocross Technical Inspection

 

Location:  Hotel Parking Lot

Date/Time:  Various

 

Your car must successfully complete a safety inspection and each driver must sign a liability waiver. Inspection sessions are being planned in the hotel parking lot.  Inspections other than during these two sessions will be on an emergency basis only or as a re-inspection of a previously failed car.  Following are a few of the most commonly overlooked items:

  • Battery tie down

  • Wheel bearings loose

  • Hubcaps and wheel rings (remove)

  • Loose items anywhere including the boot (trunk)

  • Safe floor mats (subjective…it’s easier to remove them)

Autocross

 

Location:  Edmond Fire Training Center  

Date/Time: 9:00am – 4:30pm Friday

The Autocross will take place in the Edmond Fire Training Facility .  The event will begin with a drivers meeting at 9:00am.  Participant’s cars must successfully pass a mandatory safety inspection (scheduled separately) and participants must sign a waiver of liability before they will be allowed to compete.  We will adhere as closely as possible to the VTR Autocross Rules and classes will be assigned as defined in those rules.  Please verify your assigned class and status at the time that you pick up your registration information.  There will be a sign-up sheet available.

 

Your car must successfully complete a safety inspection and each driver must sign a liability waiver. Inspection sessions are being planned in the hotel parking lot.  Inspections other than during these two sessions will be on an emergency basis only or as a re-inspection of a previously failed car.  Loaner Helmets will be available. 

  

The course will be set-up and facilitated by local SCCA members.  There will be two heats with the classes equally divided between the two.  We will attempt to complete a minimum of three runs per class.  Participants are required to work a portion of the event for their runs to count.

Dinner Runs

 

Location:  Hotel Parking Lot

Date/Time:  Evenings leaving at 6:30 PM

We will have multiple hosted dinner runs.  The seating will be limited, so be sure to sign up when you pick up your registration packets upon arrival.  There will be a short run and a long run, the locations will be the same each night so you will have the opportunity to visit both.  I’m sure they will be delightful and provide a taste of Oklahoma in the spring.  Be sure to sign up at the registration desk.  This event qualifies as a sanctioned moving event and stickers indicating so will be provided.

Concourse and Participants Choice Car Shows
