The Graveyard Shift Rally is a fairly unique event. It is a compilation of my favorite rally roads in central and northern NH. The rally is much like a stage rally. There will be exciting and challenging roads..."the stages". The stages will be connected by transit zones and free zones to get to the fun as quickly as possible, and have fun along the way; the monotonous connecting road rallying being avoided. 300 miles or so will be covered, and still some great roads will remain untouched for a future running. If you've run one of my rallies before, you know I like unpaved....enough said.
The drivers will be challenged by the roads' twists and turns, surface changes, and elevation changes, not to mention visibility. The navigators will have challenges of their own to keep them awake by way of varying instruction formats. Straight forward tulip instructions will be used to start, but then instructions styles such as "I Spy", "Dizzy Tulips", and "Look at those Curves" will kick in. Team work will be required to do well. Come well rested.
The rally will start at 6:00 PM and run until 6:00 AM, so both interior and exterior auxiliary lighting is strongly recommended. At least one team member should have a cell phone in their possession during the rally. At least one safety triangle is required. A tow strap or rope is required. This rally is not suited for all cars. Many single lane mountain pass roads are used, complete with sharp crests and rockadillos which will cause issues with dropped cars or cars with low ground effects. Estensive unpaved roads will be encountered. All roads are public roads and speeds are appropriate; this is not a race!
Due to the many challenges this rally presents, all entries must be experienced teams = no beginners. All teams will be expected to work "run-work" checkpoint(s) if the situation presents itself, which it may very well do. A training session on "run-work" will be presented before the rally for those needing instruction.
