Rallies

The objective of a rally is to follow a course from point to point, usually on public roads, to the precise detail specified in the rules - it can be competitive or for fun. Competitive rallies dictate a certain time schedule for the checkpoints along the way. Points are deducted by arriving at the checkpoint either early or late. Fun rallies may include a gimmick (poker rally, regional interest). Part of the challenge with a fun rally is to discover the intended route, which may require other skills such as solving a puzzle or looking for obscure reference points.

Maverick Rally Rules

What's a Gimmick Rally?

Think of enjoying a great drive in the country, while at the same time exercising your mind! There are various types of Gimmick Rallies, but all consist of tricky instructions and questions, entertaining details, deceptions, and puzzles. If you follow the precise instructions and figure out the gimmicks, you will do well and have fun

When you register before the event, entrants are emailed General Instructions (for late registrants, we also have copies available the day of the event). On Rally day, we hold a Driver/Navigator meeting to provide additional explanations, helpful hints, and answer any and all questions. We then distribute Route Books with the turn-by-turn directions and the “gimmick” for the rally. You will have ample time to review the Route Book and General Instructions before we start dispatching cars on the course (usually 50 to 70 miles in length) at two- to three-minute intervals. The Driver’s ability to follow instructions from the Navigator, and the Navigator’s accuracy in interpreting route instructions according to the order of precedence, are the keys to success!

A Gimmick Rally is not a timed event or a race, and participants are subject to local speed limits and traffic laws.

Cars individually leave a pre-designated point at an individual starting time and travel from point to point until they reach the finish. The winner is the team that has most accurately negotiated the route and solved the gimmicks. You may run a rally competitively, or treat it as a pleasant day’s scenic drive, ending with the camaraderie of your fellow Porsche Club members at the finish – either way you will have fun! We always try to have our destinations be interesting and have food.

Win or lose, whether you are first, second or third place, or the coveted DLBF (Dead Last But Finished), you cannot fail to have a great day with a smile.
