  • The perfect RallyCross venue?

    Hello everyone!

It can be anything - changes in the makeup of the ground, elevation changes, site shape, distance to hotel and restaurants, on-site amenities (bathrooms, vending, etc.). ANYTHING you can think of. What's your dream RallyCross site? Describe it in every imaginable way, no matter how outlandish (short of ramps for jumping and moon gravity, lol).

    I'll try to check back in every so-often.

    Here are a couple news stories about the site:

    When faced with an obstacle, you can give up – or you can think outside the (Chicago) box. The latter is precisely what St. Louis Region and member...
