No, not like gumball. Familys do it with their kids in minivans. If you never get lost (make a wrong turn by missing an instruction) you could do the whole rally under the speed limit and have a perfect score and get 1st place. However every TSD rally is different and the ones WSCC run are very hard. Its almost impossible to not get tricked by the instructions. Everytime you make a wrong turn, you have to speed up to get back on your perfect time. If you get lost twice in the same area, you've really got to haul ass because every second you're late is points. So you can increase your speed a little and still do the speed limit and hope there are no checkpoints soon so you have a long time at the slow speed to get back to your perfect time, or drive like an ass and do it quick in care theres a checkpoint very soon. You can drive any way you want you're on public roads. If a cop pulls you over its your ass and your license. Telling him you're in a rally would be a very bad idea. But WSCC goes out of their way to use all backroads in farm and horse country. Some dirt and gravel. Every now and then you're on a main road where you have to think about cops, but on those backroads you never see cops. The biggest dangers are skidding off the road, oncoming (or any) public traffic, and deer. But like I said you can do the whole thing under the limit in a minivan if you choose. Or you can drive like an idiot to get a really good score. So its not illegal (unless you make it illegal) and its not dangerous (unless you make it dangerous).
Next one is the Thanksgiving rally, so its a long time away.
There are other rally clubs that do rallys in NJ and PA, and they're all different. I did a rally in west NJ on the PA border and it was impossible to get lost. It was just way too easy and very hard to miss a turn. But they had like 15 checkpoint making sure you're not early or late all over the place. So that rally was kinda dull compared to a WSCC rally but it was fun for other reasons. The whole challenge was moderating your speed and being careful about other traffic messing up your perfect time. Everyone finished and the points difference between cars was very small. WSCC rallys only half the cars even finish and the ones that do have huge points differences. Its all about finishing CLOSE to your perfect time, that other rally was all about pacing and getting very few points at each checkpoint and hitting each one less than a minute off.
