Teddy Bear Rally

The Northern New Jersey Region (NNJR) of the Sports Car Club of America (SCCA) holds a number of road rally's per year. A favorite rally is the Teddy Bear Rally held the 1st Sunday of December for the last fourteen years. This is put on with help from the United States Marines and the Motorsport Club of North Jersey. The entry fee is a Teddy Bear and we always have a lot of fun. Come on out and join the fun of challenging yourself and your partner. This is a short fun, lightly trapped non-Time-Speed-Distance event about 60 miles longs. Scores are determined by the teams ability to stay on-course. 100 points penalty points are awarded for each mile over or under the official route. As in past years, the rally will award trophies generously.

In addition to first, second in Expert, Intermediate and Novice Classes, there will be awards for Best First Timer, Best Saturn, Best Family, Best Husband & Wife, and Dead Last but Finished.

USMC Toys for Tots ‘2021 Teddy Bear Road Rally’

December 5th - RoadRally - Results and Event Update

December 5, 2021 marked the 31st annual ‘Toys for Tots’ Teddy Bear Road Rally, hosted by Northern New Jersey Region of the SCCA and Motorsport Club of North Jersey. This year’s sponsor and the sponsor for the past nine years was Route 46 Subaru/Subaru World Hackettstown.

Forty-one (41) teams competed on this year’s event, and it looks like the event was a little harder than anticipated because only one team ran the rally ‘clean’, everyone fell for at least one of the three planned route following traps.

The NNJR-SCCA/MCNJ’s ‘Toys for Tots’ Teddy Bear Rally is the longest running charity rally associated with SCCA and the longest running event hosted by Northern New Jersey Region and the second longest rally conducted SCCA with the same event organizer (Ted Goddard organized the New England Region’s Cover Bridge Rally for forty-nine years). Since 1990 NNJR-SCCA/MCNJ has collected thousands of toys with an estimated value of $30,000. We hope to continue the event for many years to come.
