    Funny you should ask that. BeaveRun (BeaveRun Motorsports Complex) used to do a rallycross day on 1 Sunday out of the month in the summer. At most they would get 3-4 cars when I went.

    I have a track day scheduled for next month there and while on the phone with them I asked about rallycross. Apparently they are not doing it anymore due to lack of interest. I mentioned that I could probally "drum up" some interest from various Subaru forums. She said if we could get a group to do it and do it regularly that there's a possibility they would bring it back...

    Maybe we should start a list of people interested.

    Feel free to message me for more details.

    Rallycross

    This is the 2nd year that they've had rally events at Smithton Hole. We have 10-20 guys that would come to a Beaver Run event. Smithton is about 40-45 minutes south of Pittsburgh at the JCT of Route 51 and 70. Next event is June 22 You can check their website for photos and event schedule:

    smithtonhole.com

    Most of the info and changes to the schedule are here...and this is a good spot to post if Beaver gets it going.

    TriSRC.com

    The only other choice in the area is Summit Point raceway in WV. They are about 3 hours from the burgh...but well worth the drive. There next event is June 14th. Eastern Division Championships. Beaver Run has tried a few times but weather has always been a factor...hopefully they will get it rolling. With all of their land they could probably have a great set-up similar to Summit Point.

    You can show up in a completely stock car and run--Upgrading your car is up to you. Both courses are fairly smooth. Winter tires are better than street tires if it is muddy...and a used set of rally tires is even better. Rally mudflaps and skidplates are nice if you want to be extra safe.

    Smithton is small so they have 6 classes:
    FWD n/a
    FWD turbo
    AWD n/a
    AWD turbo
    RWD n/a
    RWD turbo

    Summit is SCCA sanctioned...so they have fancy classes and rules to keep it competitive from stock to modified:

    Stock FWD
    Prepared FWD
    Modified 2

    Stock RWD
    Prepared RWD

    Stock 4WD
    Prepared 4WD
    Modified 4


    Smithton Rally-x Dates:

    June 22nd, Sunday 1pm
    July 26th, Saturday 8pm
    August 16th, Saturday 8pm
    September 28th, Sunday 1pm
