Check out our 2019 Schedule. It is going to be a fun year!
Well, Charles Aggenbach did a masterful job of putting the course together. This was his first time as a rallymaster, and he did a great job. There were some traps, and they were clean. The measurements and calculations were good. The course was very entertaining, and everyone seemed to have a good time, except for car 2, who created their own trap to miss checkpoint 1. We had a good turnout with 17 cars. The October Friday Nighter usually draws a few more entrants. Pat Biggar and Rick Ross won the whole thing with a score of 19.
Thanks to the workers from RASC who helped make this event happen.
The championships were finalized as well. Check the Championship Results for the final standings.
It was a fun season with up and down attendance. We are hoping to improve that for 2019. We look forward to seeing you next year.
On Friday, October 12th, RASC presents the last rally of the season, “Boy, is it dark! 2018” The rally heads East and then South, working its way down to the finish at Athens Pizza in Auburn. https://www.athenspizzaauburn.com/
That whole area is full of wonderful roads and some powerful darkness. Driving lights aren’t required, but they are helpful. RASC rallies are typically tours, devoid of traps, so this should be a chance to just cruise and have a good time.
Registration for this novice oriented event opens at 6:45 PM at the Eastgate Park & Ride Parking lot in Bellevue (14200 SE Eastgate Way). The drivers meeting is at 7:10 and first car out will be 7:31. The entry fee is $20. Don’t forget that we’re running the “bring a new team and your entry is free” special. Come on out and join us for a good time, and bring your friends!
September 14th brought us thunderstorms, but otherwise a nice evening for rallying. Oddly, we skirted most of the storms, but the roads were soaked. The odo check ended out on Issaquah Fall City Rd. The course meandered up to Carnation, using the lane limited Tolt River Bridge. Checkpoint 1 was out by the old Carnation Farm. Checkpoint 2 was on Old Woodinville Duvall Rd. Checkpoint 3 was on Connelly, but was not reached until folks took a loop around Tualco. Overall, the course was 2 hours long, and finished at Brava’s Pizza. Chatter indicated that folks enjoyed the course and the workers enjoyed the good turnout. All the cars found all the controls and finished the rally.
Thanks to the workers who made the rally happen. Steve Roberts and Don Gibson from ORCA worked checkpoint 1 and ran the checkout. John & Derris Humphrey from the NWRC Board worked checkpoint 2 and ran the checkout. They also double-checked the TSD calculations. Rod Johnson and his wife and Jim Breazeale from RASC worked checkpoint 3. Scott Margerum and Mike Workman from PSRC started the cars before running as last car. Dave Treen designed the dash plaques, made the trophies, helped measure the rally and ran pace with yours truly.
Next month will be the last rally of the season. Rainier Auto Sports Club will be putting it on. We will be awarding championship trophies, so don’t miss it.
