The Johnny Appleseed name is a legacy from a National rally hosted by Neohio Region, SCCA in the 1960’s. The approximately 140 mile route will wind through the hills of Ohio’s Tuscarawas, Carroll, and Harrison counties. Fall foliage should be near peak coloration.
Competitors can expect an absolutely straightforward, gimmick-free time-speed-distance (TSD) road rally. The emphasis will be on precise timing at well-placed controls. The rally counts toward the SCCA Great Lakes Division Rally Championship as well as the SCCA National Touring Rally Championship (Divisional Rally).
A columnar “tulip” route instruction format will be used. Redundant, clarifying instructions will be included anywhere that there is any question of route-following ambiguity. Ample transit mileage will be included to allow competitors to traverse sensitive areas without disturbing residents, and enjoy the route.
