  RallyCross - Managed by George Ackerman  

RallyCross is the most widespread and readily accessible form of extreme dirt motorsport in the Sports Car Club of America, and the perfect place to see if you have what it takes to powerslide your way to victory. Imagine a scaled down version of a rally stage laid out on a non-paved plot of land where the course is delineated by traffic cones instead of trees or rocks. One need only arrive at event registration with a sound, hardtop vehicle and the entry fee. Best of all, it's great fun!

RallyCross is the most cost effective way to gauge a driver's interest and aptitude for "doing it in the dirt." RallyCross classes categorize cars according to number of driven wheels, engine capability and the style of tires mounted. Unlike Solo, a similar competition staged on paved surfaces, where an entrant's ranking is based on the single fastest run, RallyCross competitions are judged on the total of multiple runs.
A RallyCross is any event in which one vehicle at a time is timed over a defined course on a generally unpaved, flat surface and consists of short straight sections and connecting turns or corners. The emphasis is on vehicle handling and agility rather than speed or power. Scoring is based on total time for all runs plus penalties.
Anyone with a valid driver's license can run. You must be an SCCA member but if you are not an SCCA member you can buy a Weekend Membership.
Event are open to any fixed-roof production based vehicle (including convertibles with a factory hardtop attached, targa-types with factory panel in place, t-tops with factory panels in place) that can pass a safety inspection as defined in the rules linked below. Vehicles with high centers of gravity are subject to the approval of the Event Safety Stewards and Organizers. If your vehicle is deemed unsafe for competition you will receive a full refund.
The standard RallyCross classes are:
Stock Rear Wheel Drive, Stock Front Wheel Drive, Stock All Wheel Drive
Prepared Rear Wheel Drive, Prepared Front Wheel Drive, Prepared All Wheel Drive
Modified Rear Wheel Drive, Modified Front Wheel Drive, Modified All Wheel Drive

General:
We plan to give each entrant at least six runs.
We will run two sessions of competition, morning and afternoon, with the course changing between sessions if the area allows.
We will run two groups of competitors and will reverse the order for the afternoon session. Adjustments will be made to classes within groups depending based on the distribution of entries and will be announced at the drivers meeting that morning.
(Everything listed above is planned but subject to change based on conditions the day of the event)

This is a work to play event. That means that if your group is not running, your group will be out working the course. Without this we could not make these events happen. This work may entail any of the following: Working a hand held radio and calling in cones knocked down on course, running out on course between cars to reset knocked over cones, Manning a red flag and fire extinguisher in the event of an incident on course, Shoveling or raking a little dirt.

Kempton County Fairgrounds RallyCross #4, Sunday January 11th 2015 - Results

Thank you to everyone that came up to help us put on the event!
A Special THANKS goes out to competitors Levi and Gregory Rassler for coming out a few weeks ago with some heavy equipment and helping us make the place usable. With there efforts we were able to make a much longer course with no loop backs or cross overs. That allowed us to have 2 cars on course at a time and with the low number of competitors got us 10 runs with an early finish time!

We hope to see everyone again next month. Bring a friend and help spread the word.

Don't forget to like our facebook page and check out the photo gallery from the event www.facebook.com/BMRRallyX

Lastly, A special Thank You goes out to Mike Vanino of Mike Vanino Photography for again coming out and taking some amazing photographs of the event.
