RallyFlorida at The Firm is the official name and will be a cross between a full stage rally event and a rally sprint. NASA Rally Sport will be sanctioning the event but it will not count for any points. This will be a one day event held on Saturday December 6th 2014. All the racing will be held on private property at The Firm so no long transits to deal with. Roughly, the racing surfaces will vary from 40% sand, 30% lime rock, and 30% tarmac. Those numbers may vary but something is very apparent. The organizers really want to keep the drivers guessing about grip levels and braking points. For example, you might be on there road course which will then cross over into there forest stage and then pop back out onto the rally cross area. All in one stage. Some areas might be tight and twisty in the forest and another area may feel like your driving through a safari. The options are vast so I expect a very exciting event.

There is much more information to finalize but here is the essential stuff. This event will be for ROLL CAGED RALLY CARS ONLY. The safety spec of the race car needs to adhere to the NASA Rally Sport rules. This also means that all participants will need fire suits, helmets, hans device, and so on. The entry fee will be around $350 and $450 for late entries. There is talk stage notes for a extra fee and also the ability to do RallySolo just like many other NASA events. RallyMoto is also being discussed for any of you Floridians who prefer two wheels instead of four.

RallyCross at The Firm will be held on Sunday of the same weekend for those who do not have a roll caged car. You can bring any daily driven car and enter in this race. NO ROLL CAGE REQUIRED but there are exceptions like no convertibles or lifted vehicles. Just need a suitable helmet. The entry fee will be $50 or $25 for those competing in the Stage Rally who wish to also enter the rally cross the next day. This is not a SCCA rally cross so no points to gain here. The course will about two miles long and may contain a jump. It just keeps getting better right? Stay close as I will be updating the info as soon as I get it.

Hello everyone, we are headed to a new rally cross site in the central Florida. The location is called Osceola Heritage Park in the Orlando area. Many enthusiasts have been asking for more orlando based rally cross events so here you go. This will be our first time using this facility so there will be a few unknowns. But we are not that picky really. Just give us a dirt field and we will take care of the fun. Please bring plenty of water and protection form the sun. I'm not sure on wether or not there will be food vendors so prepare yourself for that. I'm sorry for the lack of information here but I'm a bit out of the loop. You will find the info in the event section. Thanks and Have Fun!

We are back on for another round of SCCA Rally Cross. We have taken a little break for the summer but we are now back in action. Doug McCabe has secured the next event for St Lucie Fairgrounds on the 2nd of August 2014. The weather has been predictably bad this summer which im not sure if that is a good thing or bad thing. You know it will be hot as HELL in the morning but you also know that there is real good chance of afternoon showers which means that you will hardly be surprised by the weather. So please plan accordingly and bring lots of water, some rain gear, and a heavy right foot. The good news is that St. Lucie holds up well in monsoon like conditions and the event will not cancel due to ruts or flooding. The day starts out early at around 8:30 am for sign up and tech inspection. Then, first car will start at around 10 am. So please be there on time. The entry fee will be $50 for SCCA members and $65 for non members. You can easily sign up for membership at SCCA.com

 

If you don't know who Doug is, he is the head rally organizer for the state of Florida. He currently operates out of the Central Florida Region SCCA group but has a lot more going on then running the rally program. He gladly has taken ownership of the program and even though he makes it look easy, it is not. There is always help needed so if you wish learn about the program or just get your foot in the door as a driver volunteering is by far the best way to go. Contact Big.Wrench.1@gmail.com for info on volunteering.
