You think it is fast for eatin'? You should see the RallyCross Safety Stewards hustling to get the course reset in three minutes, ha! Cooperu, where are you?

As for meal choices--I'd suggest competitors bring "fast food" for lunch!!!

Official count to date is "8" registered; are YOU going to be enter?

Okay, so, who's interested but on the fence regarding this event? Questions, concerns?

Fire away.

A few years back I took the plunge and participated in a rallycross event, just on a whim. It was probably one of the best decisions I've made.

If you're thinking about it, try it. Seriously.

I just checked the motorsportsreg site and see that only 11 Alaskans are planning on competing in the first RallyCross in two years--the March Madness RallyCross.

As an SCCA member of the Board of Directors, I will be watching the interest (this means participation) and enthusiasm from the motorsports community--it will be the basis for the program continuing.

Thinking about entering? I believe a current member of our Board was a lookey-lou at the first RallyCross and decided he "should" have (or better yet--could have) entered. Cooperoo? Well, he found a new passion at the first RallyCross and "kicked dirt"! The $20 savings goes away tomorrow and then you'll only have a $10 savings until the 20th. What are YOU waiting for - Come Join Us!

I'm trying to get a friend and co-worker to come out.

Yes, I participated in my first SCCA event on a whim, in my old car, in a rally-x. Best decision I'd made in a long time. Fun, fun, fun!

Even though my old car (much like my current car) had little in the way of power, I drove only as hard as I felt comfortable (all out), and still did fairly well. Come out, and give this "old man" with a slow car some competition.

Do it! Seriously!

yeah. do it.

nearly all of you say how much you want to and how you all love to drive and you all have nice cars to drive. So why don't you drive them as they're meant to be driven in a super safe and sanctioned event? and if you say you're worried about your car, do you really think that your cars, which were bred for this sort of stuff, can't handle a simple rally cross on a dirt road? that's sad. it can't be any harder on your car than racing down the straight away on the way to girdwood, or racing street light to street light, or trying to drift in parking lots. If you're worried about chips, and stuff go to walmart buy some painters tape and go to town. it's cheap, it's easy and it works.

autocross, the track and rally cross is the time to prove yourself. it's time to put your mods and your ego to the test. yet, a lot of you don't do it. why?

i can understand if you have some other stuff going on. but if you're just going to tool around on the weekend anyway, you might as well come out. don't come watch, watching it boring. watching autocross and rallycross is like watching someone masturbate. It's not that rad to watch and you don't understand why it's fun--- until you do it. then you have a blast and were like "why haven't I always done this?!"

Wise words Damion. I signed up.


If us as Alaskans ever want to see anymore motorsports up here, we are going to have to create an interest. Wouldn't it be awesome if one day the WRC had place up here because more people participate? More interest in the sport means more people paying money towards research, foundation and building of more courses. There is a way! We are Alaska and we have the ability to make it happen, don't just sit back, do something!

Okay, folks, it's almost a week away. I KNOW a lot of you are interested in this event, so if you're not sure about it, ASK QUESTIONS here. Or better yet, just take the "risk" and try it. Register!

This is our first rallycross event in 2 years. Come out and support an event that is perfect for your cars. We seem to be in for a long, slow breakup. Come out and make the most of it.

Do you need to register to work a corner? I'm very interested in rally cross but have never even watched an event yet to really know what to expect. I'm not about to sign up to rally my car and drive home hanging a bumper or something. But in the interest of the sport and getting the ball rolling for future events, I would like to help.

ok here's the answer from the Leader of Volunteers, mr JordyB (if some of you don't know JordyB does a lot of volunteering for the organization, along with all of us who are volunteers...

he says:
nope, just need to be there before the start of the event

prolly 9ish

they will need to sign a waiver when they arrive

Default Ask yourself these questions...Phil and others!

1) do i ever drive my car down a dirt road
2) do I ever drive my car down a gravel road
3) do I like to slide the "tail" of my car

If you answered "yes" to all (actually any) then come to the RallyCross as an entrant! While it is impossible to actually do what I am going to tell you, here goes--"You will be driving your car, and you can go as fast as you want!" Think it looks to "rally" for you, don't go full out on the throttle.

And Phil, I can "almost" guarantee that your bumper want to be hanging off the car at the end of the RallyCross! It is fun, and as Urabus said after our first one, "Forget Solo, let just do this!"
