RallyCross is the most widespread and readily accessible form of extreme dirt motor-sport in the Sports Car Club of America, and the perfect place to see if you have what it takes to power slide your way to victory. Imagine a scaled down version of a rally stage laid out on a non-paved plot of land where the course is delineated by traffic cones instead of trees or rocks.
The entry fees and equipment requirements are considerably less than those necessary to enter any other forms of performance rally, so in most locations one need only arrive at event registration with a sound, hardtop vehicle and the entry fee. RallyCross is the most cost effective way to gauge a driver's interest and aptitude for "doing it in the dirt." Classes are tailored for local entrants but usually categorize cars according to number of driven wheels, engine capability and the style of tires mounted. Unlike Solo, a similar competition staged on paved surfaces, where an entrant's ranking is based on the single fastest run, RallyCross competitions are usually judged on the total of multiple runs.
RallyCross is the fastest growing group in the SCCA nationwide. We want to grow the FLR RallyCross program and you can help. We are currently looking for new members of the RallyCross Board. The purpose of the board is to promote and grow the sport of RallyCross in the Finger Lakes region. We are looking for passionate and determined people to join and help make important decisions that will determine the future of the RallyCross program in the Finger Lakes Region. If you are interested please come out to our board meetings that are the second Tuesday of each month at the Victor Farmington Public Library in the small meeting room @ 6:30pm (15 W Main St, Victor, NY 14564). Please check Facebook for cancellations.
"A SCCA RallyCross is a test of driving skill on a temporary unpaved competition course marked by cones. We find an agreeable field owner, lay out a circuit less than a mile long, and take turns trying to set the lowest times. It’s the most affordable way to get a taste of performance rally, and you and all your friends are invited to compete. This guide will walk you through the basics of getting involved."
