Colorado RallyCross

Welcome to Colorado RallyCross!  What is RallyCross?  Think of it as autocross gone wild.  Instead of a paved parking lot, we race on gravel or dirt under all types of conditions—dust, more dust, mud, rain, snow, ice, wind, and even darkness.  If you’re new to RallyCross, check out our website for more information about the most exciting entry-level motorsport on the planet!  If you’re a RallyCross veteran, be sure to mark this year’s events on your calendar.  We hope to see you at the next event!

Event #6 at PPIR!
Written by Ryan Sealey

Hey guys and gals,
As you all know this Sunday will be the 6th event on the Colorado RallyCross's 2014 schedule and will be held at PPIR. Pre-Registration is still currently open from now until Thursday night and as always you can still register at the event.

What you don’t know is that KBPI’s Willie B rented out PPIR this past week to host a last minute drag race on the infield. Apparently last time he did this it was at High Plains where hundreds of spectators showed up and they had to start turning people away. So what this means for us is that our entry to PPIR, Paddock, grid and Tarmac sections will be different then what we are normally used to.

Here's pretty much the way the layout will be, but it might change a little on the morning of based onsite conditions. Instead of entering at the gate and signing their weaver we will be following the magenta line on the map below along the East side of PPIR, you will not have to sign their waiver but everyone will still need to sign ours at our registration table where we will be setup on the Northwest side of the track. We will then paddock in area shown in green along Northwest triangle area and/or along the road, if you do use the road to paddock please park so that traffic can get through. The reason we will be over there is because our normal Paddock area will be open to those attending the drag races and I don't want those random people walking around where our stuff will be all day while we are on course with no one down there to prevent  them from potentially messing with our stuff. The reason I'm picking the Northern area instead of using the tarmac parking lot is so that if anyone in our group needs to leave during the day they can easily do so without being near the course area.
 
Now as for the course, I show the old West side that's been used in the past but only because if it’s suitable it could used. For those of you who don’t know, that area was where we used to hold our events at PPIR but we usually stay out of there now because it's too soft and causes issues. I foresee the paddock, grid, start and finish all being in the upper north area and the tarmac section being in the middle or end/start of our course. We now have enough cable for the timing system these days to be able to park the bus on the North side and then run cable all the way down to the other end if need be. The tarmac area will be blocked off with cones to prevent people from the other event parking/entering our area. So for those of you will be working corners over there will need to keep an eye on people and keep them from crossing over.
 
The restrooms that we usually have access to will still be open for us and Short Stop will be onsite and open around 7am for breakfast and will remain onsite for lunch.

If you have any further questions don’t hesitate to ask. Hopefully the change in the venue setup will provide us with something new and entertaining for the event.
 
See you all there soon!
