Students worked with national-level talent during the Rallycross School. Instructors Jon Simmons and Alex Reinkordt are both Rallycross veterans and have extensive experience. They teamed up with Jan Gerber, a 5-Time SCCA Rallycross Champion, to help students improve their rallycross skills considerably. Tie that in with hours of invaluable seat time and two consecutive competition events to put their new abilities to work and the Rallycross school was a big hit!
The Twilight Rally, held at dusk going into the cover of night, saw record turnout. 18 competitors drove through a Glow-Stick marked course adapted from the Rallycross School held earlier in the day. Dry and Dusty conditions paired with a setting sun made visibility a challenge, but the group powered through and kept the pace right up to the final run. Some competitors even saw their times improve despite the low visibility!
The weekend continued with Sunday's Rallycross Points event for the NRSCCA. 26 competitors were welcomed by dry sunny conditions and a gentle breeze to help move the clouds of dirt and dust along for each pass. Using a course adapted from the previous two events, competition went strong through morning and afternoon heats. There were a few stops for mechanical issues and a course adjustment for safety near the end of the day, but everything ran smoothly.
