Come check out the newest addition to Colorado RallyCross. Here you'll find all of your needs for looking good on the track, at the office or while sitting at home playing Richard Burns Rally. Currently there are printed Colorado RallyCross logo-ed Men's AND Women's shirts, hats, Hoodies, Water bottles, mugs, and most importantly STICKERS and business cards. If you see something on the site that we currently don't offer but your interested in it then send me an email at [email protected].

While we only collect a very small percent which that goes back to our non-profit organization, unfortunately we can't control the prices, so some of it might come off as a bit steep looking. And if you do have any issues then please contact Zazzle and not us, for once again we are just the middle men.

If you placed an order for a Brown or Orange Silk screen shirt a few months back and your not interested in what the store has to offer, then once again let us know at [email protected]. Once there's 12 or more orders then we can place them. Those shirt start out at $16.75 each and go down the more that are ordered.

And if you ordered a Polo or Hat a few months back then contact [email protected] about them. The prices came to $25 for the embroidered Polo shirts and $17 for the embroidered hats.

The Colorado RallyCross Logo was created and provided by the great and honorable Ken Cashion. We ask that you respect it, and the available selections without changing them too much. Thank you for helping keep the "Brand look" the same for better group recognition.

Are you excited, I sure am! Because we only have 4 more days to take care of all those little projects we've been procrastinating on all Winter before the start of the 2012 RallyCross season at CORE!

Be sure to save your time in line and everyone else's by pre-registering. As we've said before prices have gone up $5 to help cover equipment costs, so it's now $40 for SCCA Members and $50 for Non-Members. And when you are signing up for your SCCA memberships make sure you put yourself down under the Continental Divide Region, for we haven't been part of the Colorado Region for a couple of seasons now.

Also make sure that you get to grid and your worker positions on time. I can't stress enough how much this cuts out a full run per heat. Yes you heard me right, that can cut out 2 extra runs a day! Timing will be confirming with every corner that you at your spot at 10am and again after lunch at the time which is announced to be back by. If you are not there when they've checked your corner then your first run of that session will be marked as a DNF. So please help your times and our schedule times by being on time.

And lastly don't forget we will all be at CORE again on Sunday morning for the Test-N-Tune/School. It will be $35 per person which will cover your entry fee to the park as well as seat time at both the School and Test-N-Tune. There is no need to register before hand, just find Eric as usual and sign up with him the morning of.

7:00 AM to 8:00 AM Course set-up
8:00 AM to 9:00 AM Registration
8:00 AM to 9:00 AM Tech inspection
9:00 AM to 9:30 AM Drivers meeting
9:30 AM to 9:45 AM Course worker check-in & assignments
10:00 AM First Car Out – racing starts for morning session
Noon to 1:00 PM Lunch Break
1:00 PM First Car Out – racing starts for afternoon session
3:30 PM to 4:00 PM Course clean-up & results posted

See you all bright and early Saturday morning!

Thank you everyone who made it out this weekend. There was a great turn out of both new and old faces which we hope to see more of soon! All of which were laying out great times and were taking care of what needed to be done on the workers end. Thank you ALL for showing up ON TIME after lunch, we were able to send the first car out much faster then we have in a long time.

For those of you who missed out on the school it was a great setup which allowed the students to focus on 1 of 5 features for 30 minutes so that they can get plenty of time to nail it before moving on to the next one. And nail it they did! Because during lunch the features magically turned into a full on RX course where they were able to see how everything the learned through the day links together.

Thank you Aaron Miller, Michael Miller & Angelica Miller for your great work at taking of getting the afternoon course setup! It was such a relief to see that we had 15 minutes to go and it was all taken care of while we had to go tend to some other problems.

Thank you also to Max Johnson for coming out to not only instruct but setting up the Test and Tune course while we were running around in our usual frantic fashion.

Max Lawson & Susan Lawson did a great job at taking care of the Test & Tune course and keeping everything in check down there leaving us to not have any cares with it. You guys also did a great job at setting keeping the afternoon course in check while placing your typical smoking fast times!

And none of Sunday could have been made possible without the years of dedication and knowledge learned by our finely tuned instructors Aaron Miller, Eric Genack, Eric Adams, Max Johnson, Peter Zlamany, Tommy Kilpatrick, Will MacDonald who took their day off to help others have a better time out playing with us.

Don't forget the Colorado RallyCross moves to the USTDS for their 2nd event on April 14th for more fun in the sun. Preregistration will be open the week before, so PLLLEAAASE get on there and register early so we can have everyone entered into timing otherwise it takes much longer to do the morning of which means later starts, fewer runs and later finish times. The CORX is one big living and breathing group, if everyone keeps on top of helping it run healthy then everyone will have a great day.

Can't wait to see you all next time!

Hey Gang,
It's that time of the month again where we get one last weekend to make those last dashes to the auto parts store and get those rushed shipping items on the car before heading off to the USTDS on the 14th. After 1 event in the books our current leaders will be trying their best to fight off the rest of the pack which will be breathing down their necks over the next 8 months to earn the all coveted RallyCross season trophies.

But to finish first you must first finish and to keep focused on everything else you should start by pre registering so that you can have more time to get in plenty of course walks after you've passed tech.

And remember, we all love getting in as many runs as possible. So to help us do that make sure to show up early (Best to get there around 7), get registered, pass tech, get in your course walks so that we can get the drivers meeting going as early as possible. And after the meeting get to your car in grid or yourself to your worker position so that the first car is truly off the line by 10.

We can't wait to see you all out there!

-Ryan Sealey

After only 3 events there's already been lots of close battles throughout the 2012 season. And now it's time to move them to everyone's 2nd favorite event of the year which all SCCA members are invited to, the Colorado RallyCross National Challenge! After always being held at the USTDS, this year Colorado's challenge will be moved to CORE for a change in scenery and dust. For Further details on cost, times, rule changes and requirements please see the forum page. There's LOTS of IMPORTANT information in there, so read through it a couple of times. Don't forget to preregister and if possible please show up on Friday to go through Registration and Tech.

We can't wait to see you all out there!

WHOA! This month’s National Challenge at Colorado Off Road Extreme was just that, EXTREME! We ended the weekend with 45 drivers who all got 16 runs in which is an amazing 720 runs, not including re-runs, for the weekend! Granted we did start earlier than usual, but 6 runs before 1 PM on Sunday is still amazing! And it's all thanks to every competitor for being where they needed to be on time. Let's keep that kind of motivation up for the rest of the season! Friday afternoon also saw a great turn out of competitors who turned out to help keep Saturday's schedule on time by getting through registration and tech the day before. And by doing so they also saw countless numbers of practice runs which was going so smooth and relaxing that it ended up being left open for an hour extra. Saturday also saw a great turn out of folks who mounted up their high beam auxiliary lights and gotten in tons of none timed runs. Then as the evening got dark and things claimed down, the camping chairs came out for a good evening of watching a movie on the side of the bus under the stars.

Coming up next we will be headed back to CORE on July 7th for more fun in the sun. And if the temperatures will be anything like they have been then bring lots of water to help you keep hydrated and focused on the task at hand, catching Tommy. Also don't forget all of those things our Mothers have been telling us for years, sunscreen, sunglasses and hats. As usual, CORE will have their great food menu available on site to fill our stomachs appetites.

And lastly, coming up at the end of July will be the return of the PPIR Gravel/Tarmac special. And while the course design is Top Secret, believe me you will not want to miss out on it. So get the word out and bring lots of fiends to come play for we will need as many hands on course in order to cover what will be a very long and exciting course.

With the weather forecast calling for rain throughout the day, there was still nothing to prevent 50 drivers from missing out on the 5th event of the season which was held at CORE on the 7th. And it should be noted that most of them only had 2 events or fewer under their belts!! But after the monsoon and mudfest scare, it turned out to be a great day with very few areas that were even wet plus amazingly cool temperatures all day long. Which helped create some very closes times and some very large 1st place gaps.

And now with 5 amazing events in the bag, we are now quickly coming up to the halfway mark for the season which will be held at PPIR on July 21st. Which will not only mark the first of our great Dirt/Tarmac specials of the year, but pending on the number of pre-registered drivers it will also be one of the longest courses we've ever had as we add our old hilly stomping ground back into the mix! So as we've been stressing these past few weeks, the one and only way we can pull off an event of this scale depends solely on you and your fellow drivers getting the preregister numbers good and high so we can know there will be enough corner workers to go around. So with that said, head on over and let the auto-fill put the easy stuff in while you use your secret decoder ring to fill in the bottom part. And if the number of drivers are anything like the record breaking one we had last year at PPIR then be sure to get their early so you can get through both registration and tech without holding up the start time.

Can’t wait to see you all there!

The PPIR Address
"Four Days and 15 Pr-Registrations to go, which must be brought forth before our next event. We must not let this opportunity slip out from us. But rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us of filling them out."

This just in! On September 16th there will be another School/Test Day at CORE, which is the day after the next event there. So this will be a great time to get some tips from your peers and get lots of laps in before heading out to the National Championship! More info on the school can be found here.

After 11 great events in the 2012 season, the snow has started falling again which is usually a sign that we are coming up to the last event of the season which this year will be next Saturday on November 3rd at CORE. While there are still many season standings that are set in stone, there are still several which are up in the air. And even if you're not in one of those fighting spots then it'll still make for a great time to come out and play.

As usual please help us keep the registration line moving quickly so we can get the dust storm kicking up early by pre-registering at ColoradoRallyCross.org

We can't wait to see you all out there for our farewell to the 2012 season!
