Ohio Winter Rally: A Tradition Since 1966!

Category: Road Rally

Author: Jennifer Dietz

Neohio Region, SCCA invites you to enter the 2024 Ohio Winter Rally (OWR). OWR has been a northeast Ohio tradition since 1966. 

Competitors can expect an absolutely straightforward, gimmick-free, Time-Speed-Distance (TSD) road rally with emphasis on precise timing at well placed controls. Columnar “tulip” style route instructions, with Official Mileages for all action points (similar to a stage rally routebook), will be used. The ~165 mile route will wind through northeast Ohio’s Lake Erie “snowbelt” (Geauga, Ashtabula and surrounding counties). The rally’s difficulty will be dictated by prevailing road and weather conditions. All participants should come prepared to spend extended periods outdoors in severe winter weather.

In an effort to help teams with limited prior timekeeping experience stay on schedule, and to mitigate the possibility of “double jeopardy” from carrying a timing error through multiple controls, parenthetical perfect cumulative leg times will be provided at all speed change locations.

The rally will count toward both the SCCA Great Lakes Division Rally Championship, and the SCCA National Touring Rally Championship (Divisional Rally).
