After a short recess for the Global Rallycross Last Chance event at PPIR and the Pikes Peak International Hillclimb, the Colorado RallyCross season resumed with Event #5 at Pueblo Motorsports Park on Saturday, July 9, which will be now followed by Event # 6 at C.O.R.E. on July 30. As in past seasons Pueblo promised to be feverishly hot and dusty in the morning and nice muddy showers at the start of each run group in the afternoon. Either way it provided everyone with plenty of competition and challenges to stay on top. It also included the inaugural appearance of the new CO R-X equipment van which will help us keep our events on time and schedule!

Be sure to register for the next event at CORE in Deer Trail on July 30th. If you've never competed in a RallyCross this course always provides a great surface to learn on and have a great time!

Moved your thread to that region. May get more response from people in that area to either participate or spectate.

Sounds like a cool event ... too bad I am not near at all.

Ah good call. I wasn't to sure where to put it.

I know that the Huston area has a Solo group and I'm pretty sure there is someone who's been trying to get a group together in the Houston area.

9 more days to go until CO-RX takes on CORE for the second time this season. So get your check lists going of what to bring and take care of all of those little rattles, leaks, fuel levels and check those tire pressures. Because it's going to be a blast!

And even if your not sure you'll make it don't forget to preregister, it doesn't cost you anything and doesn't cause us any troubles if you don't make it. But it sure helps getting in and out of registration so that you can get through Tech and get plenty of course walks in before the drivers meeting. http://www.coloradorallycross.org/registration

Can't wait to see you all there!

Another great event at Colorado Off Road Extreme, we so far ahead of schedule that we were treated with an additional run at the end of the day! The next Rally Cross will be a 2 day National event at the National Truck Driving School in Fountain Colorado on August 20th-21st. All SCCA members and non members can run and try their skills up against what is always a excitement filled event!

Think of the best day you’ve ever had in your entire life. Now multiply that by ten and that’s what Event #7 in the 2011 Colorado RallyCross series will be like. Join us for the SCCA National Challenge event on August 20-21 at the fabulous U.S. Truck Driving School in Fountain, Colorado. Match your driving skills against 80+ competitors from across the country (or at least the Front Range and Utah). Here’s the scoop on the event:

* Entry fee for the two-day event is $80 for SCCA members and $90 for non-members (includes a $10 SCCA weekend membership). Your entry fee includes a mouth-watering barbecue dinner Saturday evening and all the fresh, crisp Colorado air you can breathe.

* All competition vehicles must display a SCCA RallyCross windshield banner and two RallyCross bumper stickers (one on each side of the vehicle). Banners ($5) and stickers ($3 each) will be available at Registration.

* All vehicles must display car number and vehicle class on each side of the vehicle. And for all you blue tape slackers, spend some coin on magnetic numbers.

* Since this is a national event, there will be eight competition classes: Stock Front/Rear/All, Prepared Front/Rear/All, and Modified Two/All. Despite rumors to the contrary, there will not be a “Special” class for wayward Berettas, ugly Volvos or any can driven by Jonathan Olschewski.

* Camping will be available on site after 5:00 PM Friday.
* Watch this site for updates on hotel discounts. The closest hotels are in Fountain and Pueblo
* Loaner helmets will be available at the event.

Two words about PRE-REGISTRATION: DO IT! Be sure to pre-register using the Registration tab above. No problem if you pre-register but aren’t able to attend. There will be a $10 late fee for all day-of-event registrations.

Here is the tentative event schedule (subject to change):

SATURDAY
7:30 AM Begin Registration, Tech and Course Walk
9:00 AM Class inspection
9:15 AM Welcome & Drivers Meeting
10:00 AM Heat 1 (Two run groups; 3-5 runs per group)
1:00 PM Lunch break (food available on site)
2:00 PM Heat 2 (Two run groups; 3-5 runs per group)
6:30 PM Dinner (provided on site)

SUNDAY
8:00 AM Cars in grid
8:30 AM Drivers meeting
9:00 AM Heat 3 (Two run groups; 2-4 runs per group)
1:30 PM Competition ends
2:00 PM Awards Ceremony

Even though we still have 2 more big events in Colorado. We are only months away from the 2011 SCCA RallyCross National Championship which will be held on the grounds of the Tulsa Raceway Park's hard packed dirt overflow parking lots!

So be sure to fill out your time off sheets from work and mail in your registration found at the SCCA's websiteSCCA's website. Be sure to also check back at their site for further information.

And be sure to also send in your Contingency forms for some big time mula from Honda, Subaru and Volkswagen. With all of our fast drivers, there's not reason for us all to race for a little money as well.

See you out there!

Only a few more days until Colorado's 2011 2 day National Challenge. So get your pre-registration in before 7pm on Thursday (08-18-2011) and beat the long lines and rush Saturday morning.

If you're thinking about racing, but aren't sure if you'll actually be able to attend, pre-register anyway so that we have your paper work if you show up. No penalty or cost for pre-registering if you're a no-show.

Cost to race: $80 for SCCA members; $90 for non-members ($10 weekend membership). Both include BBQ on Saturday night!

Can't wait to see you there!

you should post this over on the URSCCA forums. we've got a rally section over there..
Yeah... but then that would mean we would have to socialize more then once a year when we come over in March. [:)]

With only 6.5 hours to go before the cut off for pre-registration (which is good for $10 off!) it's looking to be a great turn out this weekend!

So if you haven't registered yet, you should probably just take 3 minutes do the old "right click" -> "open in new tab" and register! Then be sure to go back to checking out the "funny" cat videos in the "Off Topic" sections.

Just 4 days until the last 2011 RallyCross event at the US Truck Driving School! So get preregistered by Thursday night to not only save yourself time, but also everyone else come Saturday morning.

Also online preregistration for the National Championship is open

Can't wait to see you all through the dust!

Like Ghostbusters, CO-RX is coming back with more action! So sign up for what I'm sure will be a very spooky Halloween RX on the 29th at Pikes Peak International Raceway, costumes optional. This months event will be the same as it was in May with BOTH tarmac and gravel all in one course!

And for those of you who weren't out at Tulsa, Colorado brought home 10 of the 33 total trophies from Tulsa! Two of which were National Champions, congrats to Kubo and Keith! And if we count the California and Alaska defectors, the tally comes to Twelve trophies and Three Champions. Way to go Colorado! Video from Sunday's great course can be seen below.

SCCA Colorado RallyCross Halloween Costume Party
Event #10 10/29/2011

With Halloween weekend falling on our second to last event of the year we figure we might as well have a bit more fun then usual. So bring out your best Halloween costume ideas. And seeing so many people seem to enjoy dressing up their animals we might as well dress up our old beaters.

People costumes are open to participant. They may not hinder the drivers motion, vision, driving ability (for those who have any) or any other possible safety issue.

Vehicles may not have any added parts that can fall off, disrupt the event or benefit the vehicle in anyway.

If a Event Steward feels the costume (person or vehicle) is not safe or acceptable in any form the participant must fix or remove it without causing event delays or else forfeit their runs and possibly times

Great turn out on Saturday guys! Glad to see so many new and old faces could make it out. Even after a few course change hiccups we were still able to get 7 runs in and be done by 5.

Just a heads up to everyone, it looks like it will be snowing on Wednesday with a chance of snow again in Friday and Saturday with temps in the low 50's. So be prepared for wet and chilly weather this weekend.
