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!

** This thread discusses the content article: CO R-X Gets Ready to Rock Deer Trail **

Event #3 saw a near-record turnout of 80+ competitors take to the tarmac and dirt at Pikes Peak International Raceway on May 7.  The timing system once again worked flawlessly and most drivers enjoyed the challenge of mixing pavement and gravel surfaces.  Several competitors were so inspired by the tarmac section that they attended the autocross at PPIR two weeks later, although they were all a bit dismayed by the lack of dust at that event.

The RallyCross circus moves to the 100% dirt course at Colorado Off Road Extreme (CORE) near Deer Trail for Event #4 on Saturday, June 5.  Be sure to pre-register on the website if you're thinking about attending.  The Short Stop food trailer will NOT be at this event, so bring food and drink and be prepared for any kind of weather.

And now an important reminder about safety.  You may have read in the June issue of Fastrack that the SCCA RallyCross Board reviewed two rollover incidents, one at an Alabama event and the other at a Detroit event.  Thankfully, no injuries were reported.  The Alabama incident was attributed to driver error and an aging suspension.  The Detroit incident was attributed to inappropriate course design and the Detroit RallyCross program has been placed on probation for the remainder of 2011 and two safety stewards have been suspended for the rest of the season.  Two key learning moments: 1.) make sure your car is in good repair and 2.) safe course design is vitally important at every event.
