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!

We are only 2 1/2 weeks away from from the kick off of the 2013 season and yet we only have 27 people preregistered...?!? Has having an event on Sunday really brought you all down that much?

I know we can do better then that seeing the last 5 years we've averaged 63 drivers at the first event. Heck 1 year there were 75 drivers!

So if you're not having a case of the RallyCross blues then get on over and play the fun guessing game at the preregistration!

Gesh, with all of this snow you'd almost think we weren't coming up on May and therefore almost a 1/4 of the way through the season, but it is true. So for those of you who haven't been out for the first 2 events, here's some of the new things that have been happening this year.

First of all, we went from a snowy mud fest with no wind at CORE for the first event to tons of wind kicking up the dry track, literally cones were blowing away on their own, at the Truck Driving school. So hopefully at our next event there will be just enough of a breeze to blow away the dust and weather in the mid 60's.

Colorado RallyCross is also pleased to announce a partnership with Flatirons Tuning. Through support from Flatirons Tuning, we will provide driver packets to each Colorado RallyCross participant. The packet includes the following:
· First-timer’s guide to rallycross;
· 2013 Colorado RallyCross calendar listing the season schedule;
· Daily event schedule showing the normal race day schedule of activities;
· Colorado RallyCross business cards to share with friends;
· Two (2) highly-prized CO R-X decals for your car;
· Two (2) beloved Bill stickers, and most significantly;
· A Flatirons Tuning business card that’s good for up to 30% off any purchase!

We have also introduced a new novice class to each of the existing classes. So for those who are competing in their first season don't have to worry about the intimidating likes Aaron Miller, Eric Adams or Peter Zlamany. Instead their places will be added up within their class for a special Rookie of the year trophy at the end of the season. Plus as with every year their points will still add up for placing within their class. So their is the potential for a first time driver to come in 4th or even 1st overall for the season plus Rookie of the year in that class, plus a Ironman trophy as well... FEW! That's a lot of potential heavy hardware for someone to take home, hopefully they find time to hit the gym to carry it all away.

And lastly, due to the US government being bazillions of dollars in debut and unable to find a way to cut back on it all. We've decided to show them by an example of how to, by introducing an alternative to the higher cost event trophies. These new event trophies will still feature the uniqueness and fun that our group has to offer, but while still staying within our budget. Be sure to give it all you got and then stick around at the end of each event to collect your 1 of a kind piece of hardware.

As always we hope to see you all out at our next event at the USTDS which is less then 2 weeks on May 4th. And save yourself some time the morning of by going to our website and Pr-Registering.

We had a great turn out this past Saturday at the US Truck Driving School in Fountain. For those of you were not one of the many 60 drivers here's a brief view of the fun, smooth and decently sized course you missed out on Colorado RallyCross - USTDS - Event #3 - 05-04-2013 - #39 - YouTube.

For those of you who haven't heard the next event will be the 2 day long National Challenge at Colorado Off Road Extreme (CORE), in Deer Trail. Currently we are waiting for a few more little things to get taken care of before releasing all of the details. But what I can tell you is that optional Registration/Check in, Tech and Test-N-Tune will take place on Friday starting around 1pm at the upper course. Then we will be getting loads of runs in on the upper course Saturday which will include a provided lunch to the drivers. After the event we'll move everything down to the lower course, head into town for a provided Dinner, and once the sun sets kickback and enjoy a movie projected on the side of the bus before calling it a night and camping out. And for those of you who missed it last year it was easily one of the best movie experiences I've had to date. Then on Sunday racing will resume with about 3 runs before calling good which will be followed by awards that will be provided by the SCCA National Office!

Here are some videos of what to expect from last years event:
Saturdays upper course area: Colorado RallyCross National Challenge Day 1, Run 3 Styluss - YouTube
Sundays lower course area: Colorado Rallycross 2012 - Event 4 - Cars 59 and 159 - YouTube

Stay tuned for more information in the upcoming weeks!!

Next up on the 2013 Colorado RallyCross schedule is Event #4, the Rocky Mountain National Challenge at Colorado Off Road Extreme (CORE) in spectacular Deer Trail, Colorado. CO R-X will host a field of 60+ rallycross drivers at this two day event Saturday, June 1 and Sunday, June 2. If you can arrive early, registration, check in and test & tune/practice runs will be available Friday afternoon, May 31. Free overnight camping is available Friday and Saturday night. If you’re not the camping type, lodging is available in nearby Limon, Colorado, about 20 minutes away. And don’t miss Saturday’s movie night under the stars.

Cost for the full two-day event, including Saturday dinner and Sunday lunch, is $90. If you aren’t a current SCCA member, a weekend membership will be included in the $90 entry fee. Since this is a National Challenge event, you’ll need two SCCA RallyCross decals (one for each side of the car) and the SCCA RallyCross windshield banner. These are available at the event for a very modest price or $5 and $10 each. And they’ll actually increase the value of your car! Also, you’ll need to display your car number and class (e.g. SA, PF, MR, etc.) on both sides of your vehicle. Painter’s tape will suffice, but you really should get some magnetic or vinyl car numbers—easily worth two seconds a lap!

If you’re thinking about competing at Event #4, be sure to pre-register using the Registration tab above which will be announced once it becomes available through the SCCA Site. This is an excellent opportunity to test your driving skills against some of the best rallycrossers in the great plains and mountain west. And if you’ve never been to the SCCA RallyCross National Championship, but are thinking about it, the Rocky Mountain National Challenge will give you a feel for what to expect.

Here’s the tentative event schedule:

Friday May 31st, 2013
Noon - 6:00 PM: Registration and tech.
2:00 PM - 5:00 PM: Practice course open on the upper course (Price to be announced).
