  • European Style Rallycross in Western NY

    I'm really just trying to check if there is any interest in something like this? I was thinking about approaching the local dirt tracks in the area to see if they would be interested in adding some course to their infield and using a part of the oval to start a rallycross style class to run with their normal weekend show. It wouldn't be traditional European style but more like a mini stock class that turns right and left. Same rules as the tracks current ministock/4cyl class safety wise and basic rules to keep the class affordable. You would need a full cage, belts, fire suit, etc. and the car wouldn't have any glass or lights. Probably no joker lap and obviously I would have to set up some basic rules for mods and what not to keep cost down. I just want to know if its worth persuing. I've been racing dirt track for years and with dwindling car counts now is probably the best time to try and start a new class like this. Let me know what you guys think and if your from the Rochester/Buffalo NY area let me know if you would build a car if I got a track on board.

    There is a "ner scca rallycross/rallysprint" Facebook discussion group where you might want to post. There's a lot of RallyCross and stage rally folks from the Northeast there.

    I live in the Ozarks, and an indie group near Joplin was doing "Hillbilly Rallycross" in a field with only "recommended" safety equipment. I think they lost their site due to prior industrial contamination issues. Before then, they pulled dozens of entrants. Only a FWD 4- or 6-cylinder car was required.

      I already sent an email to one track owner to get his thoughts on it, but haven't heard back. I'll update if I hear anything
