3 Free Rallyes
If you live in the Chicago area you can run it on the streets, if you live out of town, or are staying at home you can run it on Google Street View.
Welcome to the Free Car Rally Presented by WHEELS RALLYE TEAM. This rale has basic gimmicks with a few curveballs thrown in. After you finish the rallye, send us in your scoresheet and we will send you the answers and explanations of the gimmicks. Please use the following e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org. You can run it anytime and if wou wish grab a hot dog at Rand Rd Red Hots then you finish. There won’t be a trophy, for you on this rallye, but it is a good opportunity to bone up on regular rallye gimmicks and procedures. Have fun. We are in Park Ridge where they still use vertical street markers on most corners, read all street signs as intended. Just a note that if you can’t get out to run this event for any reason, feel free to run it in Google Maps Street View from the comfort of your own home. Start at Mariano’s parking lot on Cumberland just North of I-90.(corner of Higgins Rd).
The rallye runs on open public roads only, alleys, parking lots with the exception of the start and endpoint, are non existent, as are driveways and any private property.
Each route instruction is preceded by a number. Route instructions are to be performed in ascending consecutive numerical order starting with route instruction 1. Each route instruction must be performed by physical evidence seen from the course at the first chance to do do, unless otherwise specified. If you do not have an instruction that applies travel as straight as possible or go right at tee and continue to look for where your instruction applies.
When it comes to road names we usually refer to the names as Smith, Jones, etc. not regarding the prefixes of N, S, E, W, North, South, East, west, Old or new. Road = rd = street = avenue =lane, etc. Thus if you had a road named Old Smith Road. We will probably just refer to it as Smith. Any road segment marked as “no outlet” or “dead emd” are non existent.
Always take the order or precedence in mind where you have more than one type of instruction to perform at the same point. The order of precedence is: General Instructions, Route instructions, Right at Tee then straight.
Make no U turns on the route. B = T.
There will be questions asked of you during the rallye. Each valid question is indicated by the capital letter Q and a number, then completed by a question mark. A question replies from the completion of the route instruction most nearly above to the completion of the route instruction most nearly below. The route instructions are considered to be one continuous page. Answer each question and put the answer on the score sheet in the spaces provided. Some questions may be invalid and thse should be left blank.
Any thing in quotes, “example” refers to a sign. Spelling must be correct, but font, spacing, case type and color are irrelevant.Signs are quoted from left to right, top to bottom—note that a street sign written anyway can be read. Only numbers and letters and arrows are existent on a sign, anything else is considered artwork. Artwork is nonexistent. Letters and numbers must be in contiguous order and no letter can be skipped within the quote, on a sign. Separate signs on the same structure are the same sign. You should never look backward to read a sign. Signs will be to the left, right or in front of you. Signs may be quoted in full or part.
Stop Sign—An official highway sign at an intersection containing the word ”stop” at which yo are required to stop.
Sideroad—A named road that extends from your named road in only one direction.
Direction - right or left.
Intersection—The meeting or crossing of two more more named roads.
Crossroad—An intersection where another named road crosses your named road.
Tee—An intersection in the general shape of the letter T, where you have a chance to go right, a chance to go left, but no chance to so straight ahead. Lazy tees are tees.

ABOUT THE RALLYE
Welcome to Streets of Fury, a gimmick road rallye designed and presented by the Wheels Rallye TeamThis rallye is designed to run on physical roads or to use Google Street View. You can run safely in your car or at your computer.
You travel the course by route instructions and these general instructions.
Each route instruction will be numbered and they are to be performed in ascending consecutive numerical order, beginning with route instruction 1, by physical evidence seen from the course. Each route instruction must be completed before beginning to work on the next numbered route instruction. Sometimes you do not have a route instruction or general instruction to perform at an intersection, when that occurs, follow the obvious route, which is Right at Tee, straight as possible. In all cases you must follow the order of precedence (from highest precedence to lowest): General Instructions minus the Obvious route sentence, then (fallback) the obvious route. You will never have to look for physical evidence directly behind. Make no U turns except at cul de sacs.
Road names must be spelled correctly but prefixes to a road name such as N,S, W, E, Old, New are irrelevant. Avenue = lane = street = dr = rd = st = ave, etc. are irrelevant on a street sign.
Instructions 8 through 18 are part of a special instruction. Perform it as described.
Obey the law. Do not drive fast through residential areas.
Consider road segments marked by a sign reading “no outlet”, “dead end” “blind” or “private” as nonexistent. Consider private property with the exception of the starting and ending parking lot to be nonexistent (to drive upon). Driveways and alleys and Kingsley St (construction) are nonexistent. Church and any factory and school roads are nonexistent. For safety use a tad more while driving through residential areas. Never pass first street. Some Words all in capital letters in the Route Instructions may be scrambled and you should unscramble them if necessary.
Information enclosed in parentheses is helpful information only and not an official part of the rallye. You should not get lost. We use pick up points throughout the rallye, Go to the nearest intersections described by the pick up points, if lost. Don’t get lost on an island somewhere.
SIGNS AND QUESTIONS
A sign is any structure containing words and/or numbers or and/or road depictions. Separate signs on or attached to the same structure are the same sign. Quoted words in the instructions, “example”, refer to actual letters and numbers on a sign. Spacing and font are irrelevant. Words in the route instructions that are entirely in capital letters may be scrambled and can be scrambled into other words if necessary, otherwise case type of letters is irrelevant. Signs may be referred to in whole or in part. Signs may be quoted in full or in part. Only numbers and letters AND ROAD DEPICTIONS will be quoted. Punctuation and artwork on a sign are nonexistent.

Wheels Of fortune
Welcome to the third Wheels Event of the year, WHEELS OF FORTUNE. This event can be run on the streets or can be run from home on Google Street View. The object is simple, you drive along and look for signs that are missing letters and fill in those missing letters as you go. For example, if you see a sign, “Wildlife Area Ahead”, we may quote it as
P96. “Wildlife - - - - Ahead”
You would simply fill in the letters AREA to complete the quote. No letters are ever skipped and the amount of letters must coincide with the number of dashes. Fill in on your scoresheet the letters filled in in the corresponding spaces for them. Each quotation is preceded by a capital letter P (short for puzzle and a number (P55, P 56, etc.). Signs for the puzzles must be quoted.
Of course you may not see some, some aren’t here at all, and we have thrown some route tricks into the course to make it more fun. So read the rest of these general instructions completely to have knowledge on how to run the course.
You will have route instructions to direct you through the course. This page is your general instructions which set up the rules of how to run the rallye.

Road segments marked as “No outlet”, “Dead end”, or “Private” are nonexistent. Private property, driveways, alleys and parking lots are nonexistent. These Prefixes to road names are irrelevant, old, new, N, S. E, W, north, south, east and west are irrelevant. The words old and/or new are nonexistent on a sign. St = street =avenue = ave = Tr = Ln= road= trail = boulevard. etc. Obey the law.
