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!

It's Closing Time....
Written by Ryan Sealey   
Wednesday, 22 October 2014 13:54
It’s that time of the year again where like Semisonic once said it’s “Closing time, Time for you to go out to the places you will be from. So gather up your jackets, move it to the exits I hope you have found a friend. Every new beginning comes from some other beginning's end.”  This has been another amazingly fast year filled with lots of competitions between old rivals and new ones causing all sorts of shifts in the leader boards, fun filled days with old friends and frustrating days where nothing seems to click. This year also saw the first new site to the CO-RX line up since PPIR joined the map many years ago at Rocky Mountain AutoSports no longer secrete test track. But don’t worry all good things aren’t at an end just yet, we still have 1 more event on Saturday November 1st at Colorado Off Road Extreme. So as you know, registration is already open and get ready to send this year off with a bang!

On a side note, this will also be my last full year as Series Chairman since I took the program over from Ryan Gates back in the summer of 2011. I would like to thank everyone for their patience during the steep learning curve in the 1st year as well as all of the continued help from people like Haenny, Kilpatrick, Adams, the Millers, Lightfoot, Genack and Zlamany who never had to be asked but simply saw gaps that needed to be filled and took care of it. There are many reasons I don’t want to let the program go and it’s been a tough decision but one that I’ve been considering for the past year and a half simply from being too worn out from being on site at 6am to setup course, falling into the drivers meeting, to Safety then a brief hour of playtime while scarfing down my lunch so I can have the course turned around just in time before going back to safety, packing it all up and hopefully being gone by 5:30 or 6, then the endless of other weekly items that come up in between events. With that said I’d like to start looking for my replacement(s) as Series Chairman, Course Designer, Safety Steward, “Webmaster” as well as someone other than Haenny/Tommy/Myself as the equipment manager/bus driver. While many people come to mind I would prefer that someone volunteer because those are the ones who have the biggest passion for the group. I would also like to ask that they do so before the beginning of next season, that way instead of me just handing it all over and walking away I could at least be there to help my predecessor through a full season.
