We are pleased to invite you to the 10th presentation of the CRS Rally School on February 26 in Ridgecrest California. There will be a CRS RallyX championship points event the following day, Sunday February 27.

This daylong event that covers all elements of rally preparation and competition. Along with the class room sessions, an emphasis is placed on in-the-seat time for both drivers and co-drivers on practice courses designed to give them the "feel" of real competition. Many of the west's top rally teams have taken part in the school.

This is a great opportunity to show a new co-driver, service crew member, or spouse what rally is all about. There is no one involved in the sport that will not benefit from this workshop.

The $80 per person entry includes a "working sack lunch" Saturday afternoon and a delicious Mexican buffet Saturday night. No vehicle is needed to take part in the classroom portions of the course. Any reasonable street automobile (except convertibles) are acceptable for the drivers practice sessions. These sessions are held on the same level smooth dirt parking lot as the Sunday RallyCross. Experienced Drivers will ride along with you to show you how to use the practice area. Two or more students may share one car. A helmet with a Snell 90 or newer sticker is required for the driver's practice. A few loaner helmets are available. No helmets are required for the co-driver practice sessions.

For complete details visit the school's web site at http://www.rallyusa.com/CRS School/crs_school.html or contact Ray or Donna Hocker at 760-375-3289.

So maybe not so much for people who already have experience but are interested in learning from other top-notch codrivers?

Jason,

If you've never gone to a school, there's lots of good information even if you've been running for years. Mike Whitman, a former Group 2 National Champion that has been one of the driving instructors several years, turned to me and said "I learn something new every time I listen in to this class".

With that said, the class is really targeted toward new comers to the sport. With several years of competition, one would have already picked up much of the information covered in the classes. Our goal is to save the new folks money and keep them in the sport longer by pointing them in the right direction on issues like, buying or building their first car and choosing which class to get started in. We try to minimize those "first event jitters" by walking the students through all the controls just as though they were in a car on an event! Many of our experienced event volunteers have attended the class to gain a better understanding of the sport.

There is a pretty good explanation on the web site of the areas covered in the class. http://www.rallyusa.com/CRS School/crs_school.html

We would be happy to share our materials and course outline with anyone interested in presenting a similar class in their areas.

Ray Hocker
Chairman, Rim of the World Rally
