Texas Motor Speedway, Road Course

Registration Open

Entry List

Running on the road course brings with it some special requirements – you must have autocrossed at least 3 times in the current year to be eligible for this event. (clubs other than SCCA qualify) We’ll be checking local results when you sign up, and will contact you if we can’t verify that you meet the prerequisite. This is a safety issue for us – not so much for the drivers, but for the workers. The Road Course is a large venue with workers spread out over long stretches. It’s important that the worker pool be experienced in this situation.

This event will be online registration only. THERE ARE NO WALK UP REGISTRATIONS PERMITTED. This is necessary for us to verify your experience and it also helps us plan a better event for you! Because of the expenses associated with such an awesome venue, there is a $15 registration fee increase for the road course.

Oct 5, Road Rally School

Registration Open

Entry List

It’s back to school time, again!  If you wanted to learn more about SCCA road rally concepts and techniques, this is a great opportunity to expand your knowledge and skills or to brush up on elements that may have challenged you in a previous rally.  Content covers SCCA GTA (Games, Tours, Adventures) rallies and is geared for novices, though it will also include concepts of interest to the more advanced rallyist.  Key course following concepts like “The Main Road” and “Onto” will be explored to help you prepare for our upcoming ONTO Fall Rally on October 19th and the Targa Road Rally on November 9th.  ONTO Fall will have many course following problems, many based on the Main Road concept.  We will cover Main Road rules in detail in the class.  Our lead instructor will be Liz Witt.

Rally School Day is Saturday, October 5th at St Barnabas Presbyterian Church, 1220 W Belt Line Rd, Richardson, TX 75080.  Registration opens at 8:35 am.  Class begins at 9:00 am.  Around 10:30, you’re invited to participate in a short rally on neighboring Richardson streets to practice some of the concepts introduced in the classroom.  Rally postmortem and Q&A whiteboard session to follow back at the church around noon.  Catered sandwich lunch for $9 per person will be available.
