    Well, maybe not quite Gumball, but it was quite the comedy of errors. And we got trophies.

    Santa Monica Sports Car Club is scca sanctioned and they do some amusing rallies in SoCal. I've been wanting to do one awhile and I was very fortunate that Jason was available last minute to help me make that happen. We did surprisingly well and I'm sure it was all due to his navigational prowess (or luck... one or the other). We won our category.

    I'm pretty sure this is the first trophy I've ever gotten in a car "competition." And it's kind of sweet that the trophies are recycled. The previous owner passed away and donated his many trophies from over the years to be used. So these are twice loved.

    Congratulations. I’ve been looking for activities that that ever since I got my S. That sounds like a lot of fun

      Well done, Roseanne and Jason. Rallies are fun. We participated in a couple of them in England when we were driving our Fiat 124 Spyder. Fred navigated and I drove. Also, we did set up one in the Grand Forks area for our Corvette club once, many moons ago.

        Roseanne, was your rally on paved roads or unpaved? I just watched a video of a Prescott, AZ rally and it was all on unpaved roads, not roads that I would want to take with the S at higher speeds.

          There are a lot of different kinds of rallies. This was on paved roads. And it's not about high speeds either. This was about reading, comprehending, and following instructions given. You need to complete it in a specific amount of time -- not faster and not slower. The winner is the one who completes the instruction list closest to the prescribed amount of time. Math skills are also helpful.

                Did another rally last night. We did not win any trophies this time. There were several more people competing in our class and we apparently made a bunch of mistakes in the last leg that had us finish almost 15 minutes late. We have no idea what we did wrong, but the pancakes at IHOP at the end were great.
