I didn't go on the run myself (no drivable Triumph at the time), but I would
guess that is correct. "Rally" is something of a misnomer, the actual event
is closer to a tour, with little or no competition.
At TRfest, there is a requirement that you must complete at least one
driving event in order to enter the Funcours. The "Fun rallye" is a chance
for people with nicely restored cars to take a casual tour of the
countryside, and incidentally meet the "driving event" requirement without
undue risk to the cars. Plus I doubt the legal speed limit was more than 55
mph on any of those roads, likely much lower in spots.
After all, this is California ... the point is not who is best but how much
we all enjoy our Triumphs.
Hopefully when you come visit us in 2009, you can star in your own video of
California back roads !
