Scooter points challenge on the back roads of Texas. All classes of scooters and mopeds included.
No raffle or t-shirts just a patch for those that compete, and a special deluxe patch for those that win. Registration will be enough to cover patches and award dinner.
The routes are designed for each class to be able to legally ride and complete scored tasks within 7 hours. Start between 8 & 9 am with the deadline being between 3 & 4 pm.
Routes are designed using times from Google Maps + 90 minutes for scavenger task completion and fuel/food/restroom stops.
Each class has same number of points available.
Points will be earned by traveling through certain control points on the route in order.
Photographic or GPS proof must be provided.
Additional points are earned by completing scavenger tasks that range from photos of historical markers or certain intersections.
Bonus points available for special tasks that may include dirt roads or something especially goofy like getting a stranger to square dance with you.
BIG points for costumes.
ARMADILLO (140 miles) = 50 cc MAX
POSSUM (200) = 110 cc MAX (Vintage 125 cc scooters will be in this class)
BULLFROG (250 miles) = 170 cc MAX (Vintage 200 cc scoots will be in this class)
JACK RABBIT (310 miles) = 171cc + Touring Class
Up to 4 scooters in same class.
Mixed teams will be forced into the class of the rider with the highest displacement.
That means a team comprised of 2 Buddy 150's (Bull Frog Class) and 1 Kymco 250 (Jack Rabbit class) will be scored as a Jack Rabbit team.
Each class will have a winner based on the total number of points earned. There will also be an overall winner.
In case of a tie the winner will be determined based on allotted time used to earn your points.
Example: Team #1 & #5 earn 362 points. #1 used 96% of their alotted 7 hours. Team #5 used 91%. team #5 wins.
Food will be available starting at 3pm. Points will be totaled and the winners announced by 6pm depending on total number of teams.
The routes for each class will be kept secret until 1 week before the event. 48 hours before the event the checklist for each class will be made public.
However all routes are contained within this area shown in the map.http://goo.gl/maps/EaqCV
