L.A. area 500 owners: are you looking for a fun opportunity to enjoy your new ride? Then come on out to the Santa Monica Sports Car Club's First Friday Niter road rally on 5/6/11!

This is a time-speed-distance rally that will challenge your driving precision, navigational skills, and mental agility. Typical rallies cover 50-75 miles of driver-oriented country and canyon roads at legal (but spirited) speeds.

No previous experience is necessary to compete. All you need is a navigator, a flashlight, a pen/pencil, and a watch that can be synchronized with official rally time. Novices compete in a special class, so first-timers don’t need to worry about getting beat up by the experts! (We do offer some basic rally training for newbies before each event.) Trophies are awarded to top finishers in all classes!

Rallies start at the Bank of America rear parking lot in Mission Hills, corner of Devonshire and Sepulveda. Registration opens at 7 p.m., with first car off at 8:01. The finish will be someplace with food and beverages.

Entry fees are $10 for SCCA members. Not a member? You can purchase a weekend membership for $8 per car.

For more info: ffn.smscc.org.

Any questions? Post ‘em here or PM me. Hope to see you there!

UPDATE: This month's rally will include sections of Lake Hughes Rd, San Francisquito Canyon, Spunky Canyon, and Bouquet Canyon...all very "enthusiast-oriented" roads!

Also, I hear from the rallymaster that there will be NO traps on this event (if you're unfamiliar, we sometimes write "traps" into rallies that will cause you to run off-time if you fall for them.) With no traps, this rally will be very beginner-friendly, so if you've been thinking about giving this stuff a try, this is the perfect opportunity!
