Our Objective:

To provide you, the competitor, with an SCCA divisional RoadRally weekend that will offer three days of enjoyable sports-car rallying, roads, and scenery in the Illinois portion of the St. Louis metropolitan region with the added challenge of autocross and drag racing. We will run our rallies in accordance with the applicable divisional requirements in the SCCA’s RoadRally Rules, 2018 Edition (available online in the rally section at, as amended by our General Instructions for the weekend.

Rally masters Jim Lynch with much assistance from Ron Ferris and Jim Heine has designed each rally with the beginning/occasional rally team in mind. Friday evening will be a new addition of Jim Heine’s Tulips at Night. Saturday’s rally will be the first rally designed by Jim Lynch and will incorporate parts of Jim and Ron’s Tulips and other Flowers first run twenty years ago, with a couple of new twists. Sunday’s Hunt for USRRC Red October will be a fun Rally using some of the same roads as the upcoming USRRC in October. Throw in a Saturday evening drag race and a Sunday morning autocross all of which award points towards the Targa Championship.

Tulips Under the Sturgeon Moon is a Monte-Carlo-style event with passage controls (offering we believe, a good introduction to rallying for rookie/novice teams), while The Land between the Waters will advance the introductory process one step by employing traditional open controls plus (perhaps) an occasional DIYC. Mostly, average speeds for the weekend will be moderate.
