Relativistic Road Rally

On earth road rallies keep track of time, speed, and distance.

You've got to drive to hit your time speed and distance targets as closely as possible.

Relativistic road rallies are a little different,

You get to choose the speed:

They keep track of time, time and distance

The time for the trip as seen on the earth,

the time for the trip as seen on the ship

and the length of the trip as measured on the ship.

Of course if you get to the end of the rally on time there will be a party.
