Welcome to CalClubRallyX.com!
RallyCross is often described as “autocross-on-dirt”, another good description is “performance rally, shrunk”. Course design is similar to autocross, focusing on driver skill and car handling, rather than speed and horsepower. Several laps are taken through the pylon defined route, but unlike autocross and more reminiscent of performance rally, every course lap is added as your cumulative time. Penalties for displacing cones are the familiar “plus 2 seconds”, but there are gate penalties of 10 seconds rather than being issued a DNF.

AWD/4WD is not a requirement to race. All vehicles are welcome to race as long as they pass technical inspection.
Spectating is free at all of our events. If entering through the front gate at Glen Helen, let the gate attendant know that they’re there for the RallyCross. You may also get into the rallycross by the side gate but please remain off the course.
