    The Continental Divide Region is starting a Road Rally Program. Our first event will be on 7 May 2016. Registration will open at 8am and the first car will depart at 9:30. Contact Road Rally is a competition run on public roads obeying all traffic laws. It is a lot of fun and allows people to get out and have a nice drive on public roads while competing with others. Our first Rally will be a GTA Rally (Game, Tour, Adventure). You compete following a set of directions and answering questions along the way. It can be a lot of fun and ends in a social gathering. It requires a driver and navigator and any driver who who has a valid driver's license may compete. Any street legal car is eligible. You do not have to have a Sports Car. For more Information and or for pre-registration contact Corky Newcombe at weekendracer@earthlink.net

    The Continental Divide Region has announced the establishment of a Hall Of Fame. The purpose will be to preserve, protect, and record accomplishments and history of and within the Continental Divide Region for current and future members of the region through recognition of those members who have made significant impact on the region, motorsports in general, or the development of the region, or to recognize those members of the region who have significant achievements in motorsports. The award could be awarded to a non active member if in the opinion of the nominating committee that individual or organization deserves recognition by this region. Nominations for this award must be submitted in writing by region members to the nominating committee by 1 September each year. The committee may consider up to 5 nominations per year but have no minimum number of selectees during any given year meaning that there may be no inductees in that year. Nominees not selected in a given year may be reconsidered in a future year. Those selected by the nominating committee will be inducted into the Hall at the Annual Meeting each year or at another venue deemed appropriate for the presentation of such an honor.
