It is another year and another Season for Ohio Valley Region SCCA RallyCross! We'll be back at the great surface of National Trail Raceway thanks to the fine folks there. And we might even be debuting a new location not that far away. As always, Dan's Deli will be at the NTR events supply their usual great lunches.
Not only is a new location a possibility, but we have some great events lined up this year. The biggest news is that we have the Great Lakes Division National Challenge this year. Now that the SCCA is only sanctioning one National Challenge per division, the event will be traveling each year to different regions. We have the honor of putting on this event first and hope everyone will come out for the fun 2-day event; not to mention the contingency awards!
Also we will see a return of the SigmaTec Enduro Challenge
, hosted by our main sponsor SigmaTec Racing! Not just one lap of the circuit, but two full laps for each run. This will test not just the car's ability to cope with the heat of twice the run time, but also challenge the driver's endurance and focus. So some on out and test your mettle!
And back in September after a very successful beta event (despite nearly triple digit heat) is the Duel in the Dirt
! No stop watches. Just you and your opponent; Head-to-head racing in the dirt. You don't have to beat everyone, just the car across from you. Are you quick enough? Or will the other guy reach his finish line first? It's a shoot-out, RallyCross style!
So come on out! Whether you're an old hat at RallyCross with more mud under your car than in your garden, or you've never tried it before and still drive around puddles, every event at OVR is for you!
