DRIVERS, START YOUR ENGINES!
Get ready for an adrenaline-fueled adventure! You're about to embark on what we can only describe as 'the most fun you'll have on four wheels!'
VELOCITY 3 - JULY 17/18 2021
**2 SPOTS NOW OPEN!**
Overnight Destination: Edmonton, AB!
What is Velocity 3?
Following in the footsteps of two successful Velocity events, 25 teams of 2 will face off against each-other to uncover hidden checkpoints along our two-day poker-run route.
At each checkpoint, teams will draw a random card from one of two decks of playing cards, trying to tally their hand closest to 21 (without going over). Teams may choose from the ‘high’ deck or ‘low’ deck. The high deck contains numbered cards greater than 7. The low deck contains numbered cards less than 6. Drawing a card from either deck will cost you points, so spend wisely.
There will be opportunities along the route to earn additional points, which you can use to draw playing cards at checkpoints or bank towards your final score. Your hand will reset after each of the three event stages. At the end of the event, the three teams with the most points will earn the first, second and third place awards.
Day 1 will launch from our start line at 1 p.m., with decal installation & rally check-in opening at 10 a.m. We'll drive approx. 380km (of course we aren't taking the direct route) to Edmonton, via 3 waypoints, before finishing with an evening of pizza and go-kart racing!
Day 2 will take us back to Calgary via a 450km route that will take us to a lunch stop, via 3 waypoints, before another 3 waypoints on the way back to Calgary for dinner and awards.
• Each team will start the event with 10 points
• Points must be spent in order to draw cards at each checkpoint
• Points are earned from your hand of cards and by completing tasks

Each leg of the event, teams will be scored based on their hand
