The DFW Map Rally
is only about a week away (Oct.8). If you haven't already registered, go to DFW Map Rally info on Oct 8, 2016 (052435) | MotorsportReg.com
As we said, we will give you a map with a dozen or so points-of-interest marked on it, and you will have 30 minutes to determine the shortest route to visit them all, and return to the start. Then you go drive your route, and we will measure the mileage you took, according to your car's odometer.
Registration will be at Holt FIAT of Fort Worth, 400 W Loop 820 S, Fort Worth, TX 76108, beginning at 9:00am. From there, you will drive to Logan's Roadhouse in Weatherford, where you will receive your map, and determine your route. You will have three hours (exact time time to be determined) to visit all the identified points and return to Logan's parking lot, to be timed in.
Eight cars are already registered. My guess is about 20 on rally day. At the moment, it's four First-Timers, three Novices, and one General class. Two Corvettes and two Mazdas, a Dodge, Lexus, Mini, and Focus.
I have been out on some of the roads, and those were fun. You will have to choose your own. The items we ask you to find at the points are funny or interesting. Maybe both. Your opinion may vary.
