Badger Burrow Rallye

Badger Burrow Rallyee

Good Morning Rallyists,

Mailwaukee Region, SCCA is proid to announce the 10th annual Badger Burrow Rallye on May 8, 2021.

Badger Burrow is a brisk tour through the southern driftless area west of Madison. We will be using the seldom seen and spectacular back roads mostly in Iowa, Green County. The trees will be green, the weather warm and we are hoping for ideal rally conditions.

As you know, COVID-19 has damaged our ability to put on social events. Rallying though is mostly something that can be done by two people in a car with minimal contact. We have made a number of changes to ensure that contestants have every opportunity to have fun, while maintaining social distancing.

We will use web based registration, automated checkpoints and breaks that allow spacing. We will not end at a restaurant, but will have scores available as you arrive at the finish. Once results are official (about 20 minutes after the last car arrives), winners can then pick up their trophies. Those that choose to leave early will have trophies mailed. Personally, Id stay as the trophies are really cool. With any luck, we will be back to normal on later events this year.

The course is easy to follow from the route instructions. The routes also tell you when to leave certain points and the speed you need to average. If you average exactly, you arrive at checkpoints precisely on time. You are assessed a penalty point for every second you are early or late at each checkpoint and your final score is the sum of these penalties. I think you will catch on quickly, but the challenge is in getting there with zero error.

We are using the Richta scoring system of workerless checkpoints. Contestants will need a smartphone (Apple or Android) with the Richta Competitor App, available from the app store for free. As you pass the checkpoint locations, you will be timed, and your score is immediately displayed.

We'd love to see you out there.
