The Philadelphia Region Sports Car Club of America brought the Road Rally back to the area in a big way with a fun but very challenging course defined by Rally Master, Jonathan Love.
The course had both novice and experienced drivers twisting and turning for several hours through the most colorful and rural parts of Bucks County, Pennsylvania.
All drivers and co-drivers met Sunday morning at Peace Valley Park near Doylestown and after a brief introduction and instruction session they took off in a steady stream of vehicles at one minute intervals.
The course consisted of public roads some of which were a little less paved than others. The challenge was to follow no less than 90 individual instructions while making note of some hidden and some not so hidden objects along the way.
If you missed a turn or followed the directions out of numerical order you would be adding too many miles to your score and most likely would miss answering questions such as, “When was Durham Valley Farm preserved?” or “What does Triple J’s Farm want to sell you?”
Along the way there were both manned and un-manned check points that had to be met and for those who may have felt lost and alone, it was always good to see the Rally Master’s smiling face along the route!
At the end of the rally, if you were hardy enough to make it through the entire course, all drivers were to meet at Tohickon Valley Park and tally their mileage and provide the Rally Master with the answers to the questions they discovered along the course.
Sunday was a perfect Fall day to take a leisurely ride through the incredibly beautiful Bucks County countryside. Adding the intrigue and challenge of the Road Rally course just put some spice in the day!
Fun, challenging and invigorating – that’s a
Philadelphia Region SCCA Road Rally!
