I think Travis typo'd "Willows" - I'm pretty sure he means your RallyX.

Travis - you can view their pre-entry list at: http://www.sfrscca.org/RallyX/?entries.

Since I know you're a CRS memeber, make sure you also enter a CRS class on thier pre-entry form: http://www.sfrscca.org/RallyX/?registration to earn points since they've switched to the funky SCCA classes for thier events.

T-Hill's RallyX's rock - well worth the drive up there from SoCal.

Ah, thanks. I guess it was off just enough to make me wonder if I was going blind or something.

Yeah, they are a bit funky. We're thinking about combining the Rally Prepared and Open classes into one, as well as adding a couple allowances into the Rally Street class. The will get things a little back to normal, and I think 6 classes (like CRS) is a good distribution.

Or, just give up and run the CRS classes the way they are until the SCCA can come up with something that doesn’t force 1/3rd of the field into a rally-tire class based on car mods. rather than the choice to buy rally tires.

I'll be at the rallyx as well. I agree that the classes are a bit weird this season as well, but I kind of like the idea of several rally tire classes.

They're using the new SCCA classes for their regional results while at the same time awarding points for the CRS members using the CRS classes so technically, there will be two sets of results. On the website's pre-entry form, you'll need to select two classes although in your case, you would select Open4wd for both the SCCA class and the CRS class. The whole listing of SFR classes is here: http://www.sfrscca.org/RallyX/docume...sesAndTech.pdf
Confusing enough?

If you’re thinking of going, you’ll want to plan ahead and pre-enter. They often fill up the entries (limited to 65 or 70) just off their website.

Yeah, having a different set of classes for SCCA and CRS is a bit of a pain. We're working on one more update to the SCCA classes to hopefully make them easier to deal with. Last year though we only had 12 CRS members run our events, and 6 of those 12 CRS members only raced the Thunderhill RallyCross events. Hopefully the extra little hoop for CRS members won't inconvinence too many people.

Of course, with so many damn GC events this year I'm going to have to make a couple trips down to SoCal to keep up with CRS points. I'm looking forward to racing an event where I don't have to manage anything... just show up, hang out, get dirty.

I might just have to keep adding on to my already crazy mileage and drive down with Joel. It would be nice to do some rallyx'ing somewhere besides thunder hill.

Keep in mind you need to be a CRS member if you want to make points: http://www.californiarallyseries.com

Well, in previous years the 3 CRS points events at Thunderhill were about enough to get you a trophy. Here are last year's CRS results:

http://californiarallyseries.com/total_points_04X.htm

The Gravel Crew is putting on a lot more point events in SoCal this year so to remain competative I need to hit some events down there this year. I was really tempted to go to the last CRS event last year in Jean, NV (dry lake bed) but I was just too damn lazy to make that drive.

You won't mess up an OBS at the Thunderhill rallycrosses. I've been running mine for the last three years on the orginal suspension with moderate success. I haven't had any mechanical problems.

Joel - it just depends if you want to try for a CRS trophy as well. It's a lot cheaper than SCCA.... CRS membership is $30 ($45 if you want their optional "Dusty Times" publication"). Like I said though, you don't need to be a member to race CRS events, you just need to be a member to make points. Also, for CRS points at Thunderhill you'd only be ranked in your class with other CRS members so you have a much higher points-earning potential. For example, last year Hoche and I were the only CRS members racing in SM4 so the "worst" we could ever do is second place for CRS points per event. It definintely stacked the deck in the favor of CRS members racing at Thunderhill, but it's nice this year with more CRS events all over the place - spreads things out a bit. You can sign up here if you are interested:
