Rama Road Rally (RRR) is a race for the common man or woman who
wishes to participate in a piece of history.
Rally is open to anyone with a valid drivers license and a street
legal vehicle (3 wheels plus). We anticipate entrants ranging
from well-known car companies and professional racecar driver's
to the local garage hot-rod mechanic and "roadtrip"
aficionado. With this in mind, our primary target audience consists
of men and women, ranging in age from 18 to 64, with a strong
enthusiasm for racing. We speculate our secondary audience to
be college-age kids in search of adventure and a chance of winning
a generous sum of money during their summer break. In addition,
we have invited celebrities, NASCAR, and international race teams
(i.e., Formula 1) to enter the Rally with their choice of driving
either the entire course, or alternating with a team for specific
legs. Watch for the Rama Road Rally Racing Team in the NASCAR
NEXTEL Cup racing series this summer.

forms may be obtained either on the Rally website (to be completed
online or downloaded, printed and then mailed in), by calling
the 800# to request a form via mail, or at select locations (i.e.,
