    Website That Displays All The Rallycross Organizations And Schools On A Map Of The US

    RallyX // Information

    Doing a little website side project and wanted to see if anyone would think this is a good/****ty idea or have suggestions. The site displays all the rallycross organizations and schools on a map of the US to help people find events in their area.

    Also have a map of the national events held by Rally America and NASA Rally Sport:
    National Stage Rally Events

    That would be the main purpose of the site, but if it gets enough traction it would be nice for it to be the place to build a community and be the "go to" for any rallycross information/tips.

    rally / rallycross site sounds fun. I'm the spectator type, and military so I move a lot. A site like that would help me research the rally stuff in the area I'm at.

    communities are cool. I don't know if the rallyx peoples would jump on the band wagon, they seem to be a close-nit group. I don't know though. I'd say it's worth a shot if it doesn't cost terribly much to setup.

    I just want this sport to grow and for more people to find something in their area. Wasn't really able to find a map like this, so I hope it helps people out. If only the map(s) part is successful I'd be fine with that.

    I think this is a great idea. Looking at your site just sent me on 3 hour research mission checking out various auto events in my area. I just uncovered a lot I never knew about.

    Looking at you build thread, it seems as though there's a pretty good rallycross scene there in Wisconsin. Of the various forms of motorsport, I feel rallycross would hold the most interest for me. I need to give a try one of these days.


    Also, Wellsboro has been holding a winter rally in February the last few years. It's not really an official event in the sense of a rally series, but it is sanctioned by Rally America. You could incorporate this (and other events like it if they exist) on your map too possibly.

    Glad you could find some events that you might attend! Once you try rallycross, you never go back to tarmac lol. Wisconsin is "ok" for rallycross events. It's a lot better now that Stateline Rallycross started up in upper IL. It's an AWESOME venue and a great group of people. I actually helped start that organization, I do the timing and website.

    The smaller offbeat stuff is a bit harder to keep track of, but it can be added.

    Awesome post, maybe this could be a sticky?

    The East TN Region dosn't currently have a venue for rallycross FYI. In the past it has been at the redneck resort and at the oval track in Sweetwater TN. But since nearly every event was rained out last year, they are looking for a new one.

    edit: just looked at their site and see that it has been updated to include this info. Pardon me for being redundant lol.
