Mrwillson should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
Hi All,

I'm currently looking at getting into Rallycross. I've got quite a few question about lots of different things. Like should a beginner always start in StockHatch?
If so I'd be looking to buy a new car. Possibly 106 gti or Saxo Vtr. What can you recommend?

I currently drive a Cliosport 2L. Would it be worth converting this? Or would the 2L class be too expensive and too much for me to handle as a beginner?

I also have a lot of questions about getting the car to the events. Am I going to need to buy a van and a trailer? Could I use an A frame?

Any questions answered would be appreciated. Even a number for a contact of someone official or very knowledgable.

I'm a 20 year old Aircraft Mechanic living in Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk.

Getting Into Rallycross

Hi All

After getting alot of enquiries and info wanted on getting into Rallycross, I have spent some time putting together a "Rallycross" fact sheet on getting into the sport and also a video.

This includes car build info, safety gear, license requirements etc etc.

If you are interested in getting into Rallycross please e mail me on:

jrrallyx726@yahoo.co.uk

I will then send info to you and hopefully see you on the circuit soon.

Many thanks for putting the info together. Myself and my son have been racing radio control cars for some 14 years and after a short break started up again but soon found driving standards had not improved and after finding a set of tyres (you really need at least 3 sets per meeting to compete) was now 46 quid started to wonder if clarkson and hammond really had found a cheap motorsport (relatively)

My son if off to dubai to work for 6 months so we have 6 months to research our next move. I have a unit with a ramp and tools /compressor etc and was going to release it as it costs me 300 quid per month BUT I would like to prep basic rallycross cars with a view to funding my son having a blast in 2013.

My son has just completed building a 2 litre red top mini (but its like a bullet so not really suitable for rally cross I doubt.) and when he comes back after xmas he will be selling it and we can use this to fund our fun for next year (if all goes to plan)

I have also spent two years building a business up with a guy from 500 quid per month to £100.000 selling vinyl cutters online and he has stitched me up with my commission so I am trying to fund legal costs to get the 50 grand he owes me but scum like that usually get away with things so if all else fails I will be selling decals and signs to top up my pension so painting/welding/bodywork/race decals I will have sorted easilly, the engines I will have more problems with. Real car engines are a far cry from the Nitro engines I am used to working on lol

My question is what is the cheapest and cheapest/competitive car to use and be realistic ??

Very new to rallycross so excuse this if its a dumb question....i've been looking into where I could race a stock hatch car and i'm a little confused as i've found several potential tracks and a couple of championships but not all tracks are in both lists and some (blyton) arn't in either and now someone mentions a winter series that I can't find any details of!!
Excuse my ignorance but i've in the past raced in autograss where you can race any where on any given weekend you just arrive/book in pay your money and race.
So how many tracks are there and how many championships?

Cheers

Chris

Hi Chris and welcome
Unlike grass where there is something going on anywhere in the country most weekends, and the bulk of the drivers just race locally or regionally, at the moment there are no regional rallycross championships, just two national ones, with meetings geographically spread all over the UK.
Knockhill in Scotland, Pembrey in Wales, Nutts Corner in Northern Ireland, Croft in northern England, and Lydden in the south.

You can't just arrive and drive in rallycross all entries have to be pre-booked.

Blyton at the moment is not doing rallycross.
There is hopefully going to be a winter series organised by The Cramlington & District Motor Club. It will be based in the north, keep watching the forum and details should be announced when things have been finalised


If you are free on the first weekend in October I would recommend you go along to Pembrey, it's the final round of The Clubmans Championship, and the penultimate one of the MSA Championship.
All classes will be there racing so it would be a good chance to chat with the drivers, and championship co-ordinators.

Hi all,

I'm completely new to this and have a few (probably stupid) questions:
I'm really interested into getting into this and currently have an old 1.2 fiat punto - as a complete beginner would I have any fun with this or would it be too slow?
As far as I understand it would be in the stockhatch category, which is for up to 1.6l cars.
If it is worth using could you point me in the right direction on what to do next?
Is there any way to get rallycross experience without competing in a championship?

Thanks in advance,

Jonny

New To Rallycross

Anyone still looking to get into Rallycross from 2013, if you get in touch I can send you a fact sheet, which tells you everything you need to know

I also know of at least 3 Hot Hatch cars (entry level) into the sport which are for sale and would be the perfect beginners cars.
