Default March Madness RallyCross

March Madness RallyCross

Picture by Nate Vanderveen

March 15th at Fowlerville Fairgrounds, SE Michigan. By far our most popular venue. Smooth, fast dirt oval with just a few cones to make it interesting. Definately NOT a car breaker. You could run a formula car here. This is definately the best course in our program for newcomers to get a taste of RallyCross. Enter early to reserve your spot as we had a record attendance at our Season Opener and we feel the RallyCross floodgates may be opening.

Loads of seat time. Local faciliities, real bathrooms, great people, interesting cars. Better than watching Speed TV anyday.

Now open for registration at MyAutoEvents.com

Here's a video from a 2006 event.

This event is the second in the Detroit Region RallyCross Championship sponsored by Team Illuminata Motorsport.

See you all there.

I second the event. Was fun to attend 2 years ago before I got deployed. Only there was a TON of mud and ruts by the end of the day which made it that much more interesting! See you all there, maybe my Impreza will be running by then too!?

That's when we used more of the infield. We don;t go in there very often now.

Well, Chris Amos will be there so there is a very good chance you will get one.

Hey, who knows, maybe even Car & Driver.

Well, one week to go and 36 preregistered so far so it looks like another BIG one. The record is 46 at Mini SnoDrift last February. I really want to beat that. man, I have to beat something!

If you have registered or are coming along why not bring a friend and let them drive your car too. It really helps to have someone else critique your car, your car will gain more seat time which is invaluable in this sport, they will probably beat you too as seems to be the tradition.

It looks like it will be above freezing the latter part of the week so don't expect snow on the ground but it probably will be in the 30s so snow tires will be optimal I think. On this surface though you can be competitve with all season too.

We'll have some Drakes coffee there to keep you warm and you can win a pound for yourself as their contingency is in operation for fastest run of the day. Team Dynamics also have their contingency so this is yet another chance to win a set of their wheels. You can also win points towrds the Team Illuminata Motorspot RallyCross Championship.

We are not planning to run in the infield so this will be one of the fastest, smoothest and safest events you can do. It's also the site of the Regional Championship later in the year so a good opportunity to gain some experience of the surface so you get an advantage on the people from out of the immediate area.

Fowlerville Fairground is very easy to get to being just a few miles west of Ann Arbor on I96. http://www.michigan.org/travel/maps/...&cn=US&Pcd1=31

Still time to preregister at

See you all there.

Doesn't mean you can't rent a car for the weekend.

You have to come out and see KANIN's first rallycross.

Bad news everyone...

We will reschedule at the earliest opportunity. Stay tuned here for details as they become available. We will also update the MAE information when we have the information. I am proposing that all registered entrants hold their spots until we know when the new date will be. If you find you have a conflict or are unable to attend on the rescheduled date, please delete your entry at that time.

Sorry for the inconvenience. Unfortunately these things happen.
This will be posted in the Detroit Region SCCA website in a bit.

I guess I go drinking @ 11:00 in Novi.
