Default NASA Rally Sport: New event program



Rally Sprint In A Box

What is it?
This is a simplified rally, that runs in one day, on one road, that happens with minimal volunteer requirements, minimal overhead, and still gets you out racing on a real forest road.

How is that different than any other sprint?
Everything has been done before. This type of event is actually very similar to what we did at HyperFest. (Actually, we tested out the simplified time cards there this year.) What is new here is that we've put together all the stuff a new or novice organizer needs to go make an event happen. Land owner introduction letter, budget, check list, time cards, log sheets, equipment inventory, etcetera are all posted online so you can see what is really involved.

But to make it easier to digest, we have vastly simplified the structure of the event, removing some of the things we're used to doing at a rally. So registration, tech, paperwork, and other stuff is radically reduced.

Is it still racing a rally car down a forest road?
Yes, that's exactly what it is. One road, with morning recce. No transits, no stage notes, no route books... just racing. Get your rally car there, and race. Well, you'll have to help a little too.

Cost
It's all in the posted budget, but roughly we're talking about 10 or 12 drivers at $250 each breaks even. Since you can do multi-driver cars, you only need to find 5 rally cars to make that work. At HyperFest last weekend, about 70% of the cars were multi-driver. Pretty sweet. Throw some motorcycles in to the mix and the numbers get even easier.

But! But! But!
You can either focus on why things won't work, or look for solutions. What NRS saw is that organizing a massive rally (and any rally is massive compared to, say, organizing a poker night) is pretty overwhelming. So in order to help rally spread to areas where it isn't happening right now, let's come up with a streamlined event that's easier to produce. As the community grows, the events can grow.

What's next?
We hope that folks find a road near them, and make a rally sprint happen! Structured this way, it's not more difficult than organizing a rallycross. It's really not too hard. We've taken all the parts, put them in a box, and practically gift wrapped them for you. I hope some folks get excited and start making these happen on roads near them. Give me a call, I'd be happy to talk about it: 919.697.5282. If you've looked over the program and see an area that needs more explanation, call me and let's figure it out.

The Link
Here's the link to more descriptions of the program, all the documents, a list of differences from a normal rally, the event schedule, and so on:

this sounds a little bit like rallycross, only in woods. can a rallycross car compete;.. like my nissan. it has a roll bar and fire bottle left over from its track days. lifted somewhat, all season tires, but no exhaust.

The rules say it needs to be a rally car, so unless it has a full roll cage, I doubt it.

I fully concur, Anders should be ashamed of himself for proposing something with so much embedded win to the rally community

Lots to discuss at NEFR next weekend

Where is that "I blame Anders" sticker when you need it? Those west coast guys must have run out of stock!

Any questions... just call me.
