What is a Gimmick Road Rallye and who is Brand-X?
A Gimmick Road Rallye (sometimes known as Gimmick Road Rally) is like a computer logic game. In a computer logic game you have may different ways to leave a room (or screen) but there is only one correct way out that allows you to go to another level. In a Gimmick Road Rallye you are competing on the open road. Sorry it is not a race. Most Gimmick rallyes are based upon a theme. In many cases we give you at least two ways to leave an intersection. Just as in a computer logic game there is only one correct way to leave a room, there is only one correct way to complete each Route Instruction. The Brand-X Rallye Team (based in a Chicago suburb) began in 1971 as a group of people that ran gimmick rallyes. In 1972 we put on our first event, "DECISIONS, DECISIONS", based on the Nixon/McGovern election. In our 38 years Brand-X has put on over 300 rallyes for the public to enjoy. Our members have over 200 years of rallying experience combined. For a further introduction to rallying see Welcome to Brand-X. Please scroll down to see our schedule.

All Brand-X Rallye Team rallyes begin at Woodfield Mall parking area B2 (near the intersection of West Dr. and Golf Rd.) Registration opens at 6:00PM (excluding our Sunday events). We conduct a free rallye school for beginners and novices a half hour after registration opens. At each event we have a limited supply of rallye survival kits that we give to cars that register as a first timer for all in the car.
