A race against the clock. Sometimes, a race against the mud.
Everybody can RallyCross! Events are normally run on a grass field, and are open to the public. Any street legal vehicle in safe condition can run. There are different classes based on vehicle to level the field. (get it?)
Individual drivers start the course at intervals, and are timed as they go around/between the cones. Time penalties are added for going the wrong way or knocking cones over. Drivers make multiple runs, and the shortest total time wins.
Want to watch? Spectating is free, just sign the waiver at registration and enjoy the show!
Want to race? We explain the basics of our events at the drivers’ meeting after registration, so don’t miss that. Feel free to walk the course before the drivers’ meeting. There is one parade lap before competition.
Drivers meeting 9:45am
Parade lap 10:15am
Morning run group 10:30-1:00pm
Afternoon run group 2:00-4:30pm
Awards and clean up
Technical Inspection – We inspect every vehicle before competition to make sure it will be safe – for instance, that the vehicle has seat belts, the battery is secure and the wheels don’t feel like they’re gonna fall off. Please don’t have a bunch of extra junk rolling around in your vehicle, and if you are bringing your own helmet have it handy. Lifted vehicles probably won’t work, and vehicles have to have a roof and doors and windows (or window nets).
Registration – You must have a valid driver’s license, sign a waiver and pay the entry fee ($45) if you want to compete (it’s free to come watch, but you still have to sign the waiver). You have to have an SCCA membership, and you can get a weekend membership ($5) at the event. You have to wear a helmet, and we have loaners in case you don’t have one.
We have a work-run format, so half the session you will be competing, and the other half you will be working the course, so come prepared to hang out for the whole session – bring water, snacks, rain jacket, boots, sunscreen, etc; anything you may need.
Please review the SCCA RallyCross rule book, including the classes for vehicles.
Also please review the Oregon Rally Group RallyCross Supplemental Regulations which outlines ORG event specific details (operational guidelines, season points structure, etc).
