In addition to the Colorad Hill Climb Association event held June 4 and 5 at very similiar elevations to the Pikes Peak Toll Road the Colorado Region SCCA Rally Program will be hosting a RallyCross event the Sunday before Pikes Peak. In light of the recent upheaval over the schedule and the now potential need for mapping time the Colorado Region Rally Program welcomes and invites any Rally America competitors or workers to enter the RallyCross. Series and event chairmen have offered to do what they can to offer a potential mapping location at a low price. The event will be at approximately 5,600 feet above sea level. Options of a course approaching 1.5 miles per run are being explored and may be explored further if there is an interest from rally teams wishing to do some testing (this will tax our resources heavily but we will do what we can).

*none of this will be on any PPIHC rally related roads as to eliminate potential conflicts with rally regulations*



On a side note I can offer some potential roads that can not be closed but have similiar altitudes to the summit if teams would wish to explore them as an option for additional mapping time.

It will be a traditional rally cross in most senses.

Currently unless we recieve PPIHC racer interest it will be approximately a .7 mile course with a moderate mix of turns conforming to the course design guidelines set by the SCCA.

It will be $25.00 for SCCA members and $35.00 for non.

If we get enough interest the event and series organizers will try to locate the physical resources to add an enitre second parking lots worth of course to the course.

Traditionally every driver gets 3 runs in the morning then the course is reversed with the appropriate changes and the course is ran in reverse. Runs are done in two different run groups broke up by class, to the best of my knowledge we are still stubborn and run Club rally classes.

As far as the surface is concerned this event is held at a semi truck driving school the sruface is gerenally packed with loose gravel ontop. We work around some of the truck driving school equipment such as cement filled tires but these are very carefully integrated into the course as to not increase the risk to cars.

The approximate elevation of the event is at 5,600 feet, which may or may not be of use for mapping.

For more specific information ask or go to http://www.coloradorallycross.org

PS For racers I have compiled a list of dynos within 100 miles of Pikes Peak. it can be viewed here: http://rally-america.com/forums/showpost.php?p=8003&postcount=14

RE: Additional pre PPIHC testing option available to teams and spectators

I will waive the non SCCA member fee for all Rally America teams that are running on Pikes Peak if they want to participate on the June 19th Rally Cross in Fountain. The main goal of holding this event a couple of days before practice started was to get some PPIHC spectaotrs a chance to have some fun. If teams want to do some test and tune please contact me directly and I will see if I can get a second high speed course set up that could be used for just testing at the same time or after the RalyCross is done. Please contact me directly and I will make a decision depending on the number of cars interested.
