Performance rally isn't dead in Texas!

Due to the efforts of Brianne Corn, there will be a rally event Thanksgiving Weekend. It will be some sort of rally sprint on steroids, not a little drive around the cones event like the SCCA RallyCross. It will be at Harris Hill Raceway in San Marcos. The reason it is being called a rally sprint instead of a full performance rally is that it will be held entirely on the infield at Harris Hill. There are over 2 miles of road. The roads will be completely baby butt smooth by the time of the event as Brianne owns a road grader and knows how to use it. Open to all caged cars so Lemons and Chump Cars and even SCCA IT cars are welcome. No co-driver required although you may use one if it makes you faster. Possible cost is around $250 with total mileage of around at least maybe 30 or more. More information to be made available as we discover it.

That course looks sweet. I would love to do it if I had a car prepared for such an event.

But even so, I would love to check that out. Hmm ... thanksgiving weekend ... family trip.

There will be a regular rally cross held the day before or after the performance part. Non-SCCA but still fun.

By the way, regular SCCA drivers with caged cars, like IT cars, can run in this event.
