What is Rallycross?
Rallycross or RallyX events are run throughout the year in the region. The terrain varies from ice and snow in winter, to muddy surface in mid-season and dirt or gravel during the drier months. Grips is always a challenge and sliding quickly becomes a second natures. It is a great way to learn about car balance, left foot braking and other driving techniques.
As Autocross, Rallycross is run against the clock on a closed coursed defined by cones. Unlike Autocross, every run of the day counts in Rallycross so cone penalties (2 seconds like in AutoX) can cost you the victory at the end of the day as they all add-up! Also missing a gate and going off course inflicts a 16 seconds penalty...
We run most of our events with the SCCA New England region. The typical cost is about $60 per driver if you are an SCCA member and everything is run by volunteers, When you don't drive, you have to work and help out!
