Happy New Year Everybuddy! 2013 turned out to be a good year for the Florida Rally Program led by Doug McCabe with the SCCA. He really pushed hard to get us some good events. This year looks like will be a reapeat or better of 2013. Starting with the first two events, A two day event in January and a single in February. This is crucial as we can take advantage of the cooler weather.
The first event of the year will be on January 25/26 2014 at the Florida Horse Park in Okala Fl This will be a two day RallyX but treated as two seperate regional events. The entry fee will be $55 for one day or $75 for both days (SCCA Members price) and $65 - $90 (for non members) If you would like to camp overnight at the property there is a $5 charge which is great!
The Second event of the year will be February 9th 2014 at the St. Lucie Fairgrounds This weekend will be a traditional one day event with the normal entry fees ($55-$65) We have raced here plenty so St. Lucie is a proven location to host a RallyX

Hey everybody, I'm pleasesd to announce that scca rally cross returns to Tampa's Eastbay Raceway. Eastbay is a dirt oval track that modified cars race wheel to wheel. November 17th 2013 we will be taking over, racing in our typical rallycross format. That is one car at a time seperated by one minute. Each run counts towards a total time which will place you at the end of the day. The competition over the season has been growing so expect to see some tight battles but at the same time it's not all about competition. We encourage all skill levels to come out play with us in the dirt.
All you need is a running car, a helmet, and some working seat belts. Thats all you need to have an amazing driving experience. Split the car amongst your friends and you can all drive and have fun. Entry fee will be $55 for SCCA members and $65 for non members. Please regiister at DLBRacing.com for this event.
Expect hot weather so please bring water and protection for the sun. Spectaors are always welcome and especially photographers. We are in need of good pictures and video so any help is greatly appreciated.

Finally our long summer break is over. Florida has a 8 month long summer season but at least our rally break is over. We are coming back to St. Lucie Fairgrounds on September 14th 2013 for a rally cross. Once again Central Florida SCCA is running the rally event and is the only region running rallyx in the entire state. We have had some of our fellow members modifying their race cars and event prepping new cars so this event will be very interesting all the new changes.
Remember that rally cross is the most cost effective and fun filled racing that you will ever experience. Racing on a loose gravel surface is the best way to learn about car control. You will have a blast on our fast and flowing course while learning some very important car control tactics. Believe it or not, driving on the dirt will sharpen your skills. I guarantee this. Teenagers and first time drivers will benefits greatly from this type of driving experience. From the begining of their driving life they can develop the confidence needed to tackle the chaotic streets and highways in this state.
Expect a hot summer day so make sure to bring your sun block, hats and plenty of water. Also, a summer shower has been known for blowing through so prepare for possibly getting wet. The event location is held on the Southwest corner of the Fairground property. The access road is on the west side of the property.
