Anyone going to this? I'll be there with a few of my club members, and I'll be entering my *unmodified* red '90 audi 80q. Stop by and introduce yourself if you see me.

Here are some direct quotes from the SCCA's website about TSD (time-speed-distance) road rallies and off road performance rallies:
WHAT IS A ROAD RALLY?
"Two or more people, in ordinary cars, on regular roads, within the legal speed limit, make up a rally team. The goal is to drive on time — not early or late. Each team needs a wristwatch set to match rally time; something to write on and write with. For night rallies a flashlight or other interior lights are needed to read instructions."
No Experience Required!
"A car rally is contested by a two person team within the legal speed limit, in ordinary cars, on regular roads. The challenge is to drive on time—not early or late (it's not a race)."
And now for what they have to say about performance rallies:
WHAT IS "PERFORMANCE RALLY?
"Performance Rally is, quite simply, the most exciting, demanding, and satisfying motorsport sanctioned by the Sports Car Club of America. It requires the finesse of Solo, the skill of track racing, the precision of rallying, and more courage and sheer determination than all of them. It is flat-out racing...against the clock, against an unknown road, against the elements, against other competitors, and against yourself."
Let me just tell ya, there's much more to automotive events than shows and drag racing! And you'd be surprised, there are plenty of VW/Audi enthusiasts at these events. All that have never competed in a tsd road rally nor seen a performance offroad rally should check them out sometime...trust me you'll be hooked
