Join us for DC RallyCross this season!
It's racing on dirt, gravel, grass, and sometimes mud on a course defined by cones. Each run you make counts towards the final results, and the conditions often change throughout the day, challenging drivers to be fast but also stay consistent.
Is this like Stage Rally or X-Games?
Kind of- but without the high risk of danger and damage. This is rally but for street cars too. RallyCross courses are designed to avoid hitting trees, flipping your car, or crashing into a ditch. There are no gap jumps, stream crossings, or cliff-sides.
Can I do this with my car?
YES. Pretty much any car at or near stock height can do it, as long as you don't mind getting it dirty.
Will my car be damaged?
Not if you drive within your's and your car's limits. Your suspension will get a workout, and your car will get dirty.
Does my car need to be modded or “set up" for rallycross?
No. Any car can run, and any car can win. You just need to hone your driving abilities. You will need a helmet. You don’t need a roll cage, race seat, fire suit, or other expensive safety device. They loan helmets too.
Where is the racing?
The Washington DC Region of SCCA holds all of their RallyCross events at Summit Point Motorsports Park in Summit Point, WV.
Will there be scantily-clad car girls who will let me take pictures of them leaning against my car?
Not unless you bring them!
How do I find out more?
Feel free to come to one of our events to specate. Most drivers are happy to give ride-alongs too. Rallycross events are laid-back where everyone is friendly and eager to chat about the sport.
