sccarally There are ten cars signed up for the ONTO Fall Rally on the 29th. My guess is 25 cars will run the event on fun Collin County roads. The check runs went well, and the course got kudos from the checkers.

No Focus cars yet. Why not?

This is event number four out of six for the series this year. Next is the Great Pumpkin Rally to Paris, a rally known for easy course following but hard questions. Mark October 27 on your calendar. Then in December a rare Sunday rally, the Network Children's Book Run, our annual charity event. This is scheduled for the 2nd. All you Saturday workers don't have an excuse for this one.

Follow me on Twitter (@TXrally) to keep up with registration progress, and maybe a hint or two to help you out on rally day.

Also, if you are serious about wanting to run in a Rally America performance event, read the rules first. Mostly because Ford is putting up some money for those who compete in Fords but I don't know what the restrictions are on allowable modifications. I do know that performance rally needs a serious roll cage. And that handling is more important than horsepower.

Thanks! I'll try to make this shindig in town --and I'll read up on the Rally America too.

If you want WRC type events, check our web site www.rallyengr.com. We are planning a performance rally based in Lamar county over Thanksgiving weekend. That is a contest of speed and I doubt your car is prepared for that. :)
no way I Hell I'm done with this thing by then! I don't even have my new FR head installed yet LOL --next November however...

Is there a website for this non-arse hauling, paying attention-style rally? I like the idea of a twisty test of attention span.

n00btard So....

What's this kind of rally? I was assuming WRC kind of rally...

If its a big group driving event --my car is already prepared.

RichardM Any that are street legal. This NOT a race. You can NOT go tearing down the roads as fast as you want.

If that is the type of driving you want to do, try Solo or RallyCross. If you want to do it in a real race car, go road racing or performance rally.
