Never Rallycrossed before?

The first step is to actually show up to an event. RallyX is one of the most laid back groups in the SCCA and the committee misers and competitors are always willing and ready to answer any questions you may have or give you advice about just about anything when it comes to rallying. We have competitors ranging from junkyard armatures to stage rally drivers so no matter what your goal is with RallyX there will be someone around who can point you in the right direction. Check out our Facebook page to start talking to other RallyX racers and get all of your questions answered before your first event.

 

How do I register for my first event?

Head on over to the Event Calendar and Registration page to find out when the next event is going to be and get more information about how to register.

 

How do I know what class I’m in?

Head on over to the SCCA RallyCross Cars and Rules to figure out what class your car will fall into before registration. If you’re not sure how to class your car then feel free to email Juan Johnson at juanjoh77@gmail.com and he will more than happily help you figure out what class to put your car in.

 

Can my car rally?

If your car meets the requirements from the rules listed above then you can rally. If you have any concerns about if your car is too low or if there is anything about your car that might make competing at an event difficult, email juanjoh77@gmail.com and he will once again be more than happy to help you figure out if rally is right for you car, and point you in the right direction for what to do if it’s not.

 

What do I need to rally?

All you need to rally is a valid drivers license, and an SCCA legal car (see above), and a need to go fast on dirt. You may like to bring your own helmet and or any tools you may want to work on your car, but we have loaner helmets and tools on site for people to use if need be. We also usually have water available during the hotter months of summer so feel free to bring your own, but if you forget we got you covered.

 

How much does it cost?

SCCA Members: $35

Non-SCCA Members: $45 (Includes weekend SCCA membership good towards a $10 discount on full membership)

Ride alongs: $10

 

Will I break my car?

While this is the assumption and often recited concern towards rally, most cars compete all season without encountering and issues short of minor paint chips and scratches. We recently relocated to a smoother surface to race on so while in the past there were a few independent instances where a car DNF’d most if not all of that risk is gone now. If you have any questions email Juan at juanjoh77@gmail.com again or just post about it on our Facebook group for more information.
