This is a ‘pilot’ event with Rally Ready, so expect to have fun, enjoy some time at a Rallycross site, and learn a new racing format. We may have some teething issues as we figure out adapting our Autocross experience to the dirt, but our main goal here is to have a good time!
There is no minimum entry requirement for this event
The Rallycross will take place on the Rally Sprint course on the north end of the site
This course is a little more fast and bumpy than a typical Rallycross
Please practise extra caution and don’t drive outside of your limits. While there are few consequences for driving outside of the performance limit of an autocross car on tarmac, driving on the dirt introduces additional challenges.
We will post a video of a street car driving on the course later this week so you can decide if it’s appropriate for your car or not
There will be another event happening simultaneously on another course, so we will be sharing the site for part of the day
Event will be the normal non-COTA Autocross cost. ($25 for members)
Expect around 5 runs. Timing is cumulative, unlike Autocross – all of your runs count!
This event is open to anyone, not just Spokes members
Rally Ready UTV rentals ($100/5 Runs) are available in the afternoon on the “Woods” course
There will also be $5 Fun Runs on the “School” course after the Rallycross is over
No outside dogs! There are plenty of awesome Rally dogs to pet though
There is a very limited number of rental car seats in the Rally Ready cars. Pre-register on Axware for the event and email firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in renting a seat in a car.
Don’t be afraid to cruise your local Craigslist or FB Marketplace for a cheap beater that you won’t feel bad about flogging around in the dirt!
We will be hanging out at the Ranch after the event and camping on-site on Saturday night.
There are restrooms and running water in the main building, but the camping sites are primitive
RVs are welcome, but there are no water or electric hookups (generators are fine)
We will most likely have a central hangout spot where we can build a fire
The site is located Southeast of Austin. The roads are gravel and it can get dusty
Be prepared to get dirty, it may be a good idea to bring an extra set of clothes for after the event
We will have a detailed course map up next week, but you can explore the site on Google maps:
