Join us for the 54th anniversary of Cascade Sports Car Club’s classic Mountains to the Sea road rally. This year’s rally starts in southwest Portland, and finishes with a party on the beach at South Beach Park near Newport. This beginner level time-speed-distance road rally explores some of western Oregon’s most scenic back roads.
$85 for members, $100 for non-members covers entry in the road rally and Saturday evening beach party dinner for driver and navigator. $10 each for additional diners.
The Latest News!
Development of the route is nearly complete. This beginner-level tour-style event includes TSD regularity sections with GPS-timed passage controls, time of day restarts, and a Monte Carlo finale. For the Monte Carlo section, a start time/location and end time/location are provided. Route instructions dictate the route, but no speeds are given. Just arrive at the specified final checkpoint at the specified time to zero the leg.
We’re excited about using the new GPS checkpoint app. The app offers some advantages over traditional timing and scoring for both contestants and organizers. Contestants get nearly immediate feedback. Once you pass a checkpoint, the app calculates your score for that leg and displays it to you. For rally organizers, manned checkpoints are not needed. The event is scored and results are available almost as soon as the last team crosses the finish line. A GPS-timed rally can contain many more checkpoints.
