Looks like Proauto is testing the waters for a rallycross program.
One of the cool aspects is that it's a mixed surface event (gravel and asphalt).
The event is next Saturday (August 20th). I don't think they're doing much to spread the word... I only found out because they emailed my friend (who does track days) yesterday and can't find much more on Google.

My car won't be ready in time. Is anyone else's car for rent?

Subject: Introducing "Local Rallycross Arizona" @ Wild Horse

We are excited to announce the launch of another type of Auto Racing here in the Valley of the Sun.... Rallycross! Starting this month, Local Rallycross Arizona will be hosting events at Wild Horse Pass Motorsports Park, and we wanted to spread the word to ProAutoSports Members. See the press release below, and if you have any questions direct them to the contacts at the bottom of the page. Hope to see you out at Wild Horse on the 20th of August!

August 8, 2016- A new kind of racing is ready to hit Wild Horse Pass Motorsports Park starting this summer… Rallycross!
Local Rallycross Arizona will be hosting this unique style of racing that combines asphalt and dirt into one challenging track. It will have competitors carving turns, blasting down straights, and getting air on the big main jump.
Local Rallycross Arizona will utilize the West Track, which recently held the opening event of the Red Bull Global Rallycross series. The track will have seven turns, two straight-aways and one big dirt jump.
Participants: This is a “run what you brung” style of event. Almost any type of car is welcome, from daily-driver to advanced caged race cars. If you want to drive it on the mixed surface track, this is your opportunity!
Participants will need:
• Helmet (DOT, or Snell 2010 or newer)
• Long pants and closed-toe shoes
• Their vehicle to be in good operating condition and able to pass a basic safety inspection

Our first event will be held on August 20th at Wild Horse Pass Motorsports Park in Chandler, Arizona, starting at 7:00pm and running into the night.
If you are a Motorsports fan, you will love all the action Rallycross brings!
For more information about driving in this event contact 480-664-3872 or rallycross@proautosports.com.
For general event information contact 480-363-7583 or chuck@proformancesecurity.com.

These two things don't often go together. How big a jump are we talking?

I'm assuming that since they will be running on the same track as the Red Bull Global Rally Cross used. It will be the same jump. I could be wrong smile.gif

Got some more details from the organizer.

  • The jump will be "more of a rise than a jump."
  • Entry fee is $50 per driver.
  • Multiple drivers per car is okay.
  • Registration is onsite.

If I wasn't going to be out of town for Deana's birthday, I would absolutely be there testing out the Jetta's skid plate. I hope they continues these!
