Beginning January 7 we will kick off the new Winter Rally-X series. This will take place on the infield off the North Track. The course will consist of dirt, grass, mud, or even snow and will be designed in the next few weeks.
The series will consist of 4-5 races throughout the off season. These events will take place regardless of the weather (snow is better!).
The idea for this is to keep things simple and fun.
Cars will be restricted to:
• 2.5L engines or smaller.
• Front or rear wheel drive is fine (think compact cars).
• A single roll hoop with down bars, proper race seat and harnesses, and window net will be required.
• DOT tires- likely snow tires
An entry fee will be required to cover the costs of operations. Drivers can share cars. Events will be timed runs.
Members are welcome to build their own cars or Havoc Motorsports will likely build some for rent. Jody Lift at Havoc has prior experience with Rally cars and would be a good source of information if you plan to build your own car. Cost of building your own car should be roughly $3K all in. In other words the intention is not for people to build something that would run in WRC. It’s meant to be fun and simple. Many members have already expressed an interest in this. So don’t let the winter season get you down. Come out and have some fun!
