We are only 2 1/2 weeks away from from the kick off of the 2013 season and yet we only have 27 people preregistered...?!? Has having an event on Sunday really brought you all down that much?

I know we can do better then that seeing the last 5 years we've averaged 63 drivers at the first event. Heck 1 year there were 75 drivers!

So if you're not having a case of the RallyCross blues then get on over and play the fun guessing game at the preregistration!

Gesh, with all of this snow you'd almost think we weren't coming up on May and therefore almost a 1/4 of the way through the season, but it is true. So for those of you who haven't been out for the first 2 events, here's some of the new things that have been happening this year.

First of all, we went from a snowy mud fest with no wind at CORE for the first event to tons of wind kicking up the dry track, literally cones were blowing away on their own, at the Truck Driving school. So hopefully at our next event there will be just enough of a breeze to blow away the dust and weather in the mid 60's.

Colorado RallyCross is also pleased to announce a partnership with Flatirons Tuning. Through support from Flatirons Tuning, we will provide driver packets to each Colorado RallyCross participant. The packet includes the following:
∑ First-timerís guide to rallycross;
∑ 2013 Colorado RallyCross calendar listing the season schedule;
∑ Daily event schedule showing the normal race day schedule of activities;
∑ Colorado RallyCross business cards to share with friends;
∑ Two (2) highly-prized CO R-X decals for your car;
∑ Two (2) beloved Bill stickers, and most significantly;
∑ A Flatirons Tuning business card thatís good for up to 30% off any purchase!

We have also introduced a new novice class to each of the existing classes. So for those who are competing in their first season don't have to worry about the intimidating likes Aaron Miller, Eric Adams or Peter Zlamany. Instead their places will be added up within their class for a special Rookie of the year trophy at the end of the season. Plus as with every year their points will still add up for placing within their class. So their is the potential for a first time driver to come in 4th or even 1st overall for the season plus Rookie of the year in that class, plus a Ironman trophy as well... FEW! That's a lot of potential heavy hardware for someone to take home, hopefully they find time to hit the gym to carry it all away.

And lastly, due to the US government being bazillions of dollars in debut and unable to find a way to cut back on it all. We've decided to show them by an example of how to, by introducing an alternative to the higher cost event trophies. These new event trophies will still feature the uniqueness and fun that our group has to offer, but while still staying within our budget. Be sure to give it all you got and then stick around at the end of each event to collect your 1 of a kind piece of hardware.

As always we hope to see you all out at our next event at the USTDS which is less then 2 weeks on May 4th. And save yourself some time the morning of by going to our website and Pr-Registering.

We had a great turn out this past Saturday at the US Truck Driving School in Fountain. For those of you were not one of the many 60 drivers here's a brief view of the fun, smooth and decently sized course you missed out on http://youtu.be/1W_OHX4Ug4s.

For those of you who haven't heard the next event will be the 2 day long National Challenge at Colorado Off Road Extreme (CORE), in Deer Trail. Currently we are waiting for a few more little things to get taken care of before releasing all of the details. But what I can tell you is that optional Registration/Check in, Tech and Test-N-Tune will take place on Friday starting around 1pm at the upper course. Then we will be getting loads of runs in on the upper course Saturday which will include a provided lunch to the drivers. After the event we'll move everything down to the lower course, head into town for a provided Dinner, and once the sun sets kickback and enjoy a movie projected on the side of the bus before calling it a night and camping out. And for those of you who missed it last year it was easily one of the best movie experiences I've had to date. Then on Sunday racing will resume with about 3 runs before calling good which will be followed by awards that will be provided by the SCCA National Office!

Here are some videos of what to expect from last years event:
Saturdays upper course area: http://youtu.be/syYKoHcxwJc
Sundays lower course area: http://youtu.be/aKyQ2bizG2k

Stay tuned for more information in the upcoming weeks!!

Next up on the 2013 Colorado RallyCross schedule is Event #4, the Rocky Mountain National Challenge at Colorado Off Road Extreme (CORE) in spectacular Deer Trail, Colorado. CO R-X will host a field of 60+ rallycross drivers at this two day event Saturday, June 1 and Sunday, June 2. If you can arrive early, registration, check in and test & tune/practice runs will be available Friday afternoon, May 31. Free overnight camping is available Friday and Saturday night. If you’re not the camping type, lodging is available in nearby Limon, Colorado, about 20 minutes away. And don’t miss Saturday’s movie night under the stars.

Cost for the full two-day event, including Saturday dinner and Sunday lunch, is $90. If you aren’t a current SCCA member, a weekend membership will be included in the $90 entry fee. Since this is a National Challenge event, you’ll need two SCCA RallyCross decals (one for each side of the car) and the SCCA RallyCross windshield banner. These are available at the event for a very modest price or $5 and $10 each. And they’ll actually increase the value of your car! Also, you’ll need to display your car number and class (e.g. SA, PF, MR, etc.) on both sides of your vehicle. Painter’s tape will suffice, but you really should get some magnetic or vinyl car numbers—easily worth two seconds a lap!

If you’re thinking about competing at Event #4, be sure to pre-register using the Registration tab above which will be announced once it becomes available through the SCCA Site. This is an excellent opportunity to test your driving skills against some of the best rallycrossers in the great plains and mountain west. And if you’ve never been to the SCCA RallyCross National Championship, but are thinking about it, the Rocky Mountain National Challenge will give you a feel for what to expect.

Here’s the tentative event schedule:

Friday May 31st, 2013
Noon - 6:00 PM: Registration and tech.
2:00 PM - 5:00 PM: Practice course open on the upper course (Price to be announced).
Overnight camping allowed.

Saturday June 1st, 2013
7:00 AM: Breakfast available on-site.
7:30 AM: Late registration and tech.

2:30 PM: Competition resumes, heats 3/4 (3-5 runs per group).
6:30 PM: Competition ends.
7:30 PM: Dinner provided on-site.

After Dark: The Paddock and course will be moved to the lower course area followed by a Movie on the green. Enjoy an Academy Award-worthy movie projected on the side of the Magic Bus. Bring a lawn chair, beverage of your choice and plenty of sun screen.
Overnight camping allowed.

Pre-Registration for the National Challenge is now open! And while you can pay in advanced, it's not required so you are still able to pay when you arrive onsite.

Time flies when you're having fun. Can't believe we are already half-way through the season as we take to the mixed tarmac and gravel surfaces of PPIR this Saturday July 20th! Stop to check out the full writeup on our website when you head over to pre-register
