Default Off Road Rally in Texas has open enrollment for Chump/Lemons/caged cars-Nov 24

2012 Texas Rally Sprint | NASA Rally Sport

Saturday November 24th
Harris hill Raceway
San Marcos TX 78666

Regular Entry Fee (thorugh 11/23):Car $250 / Motorcycles $125
Late Entry Fee (through 11/24):Car $275 / Motorcycle $150
NASA membership is required as well as a NASA Rally Sport license. Membership is $45 and the NASA license has been reduced to $5 for this event.

I'm taking this straight off their Facebook page:

Texas will have a rally this year! This is your chance to get a taste of rally without having to travel half way across the country. And we have a format that allows for you to compete and get the full rally experience without the hassle of needing lights, tags and a state inspection. Just about any road race legal car that passes tech will be eligible to compete. We have gone to great lengths to ensure that Chumps and Lemons car can compete here. You can run with or without a codriver (under the new rally solo rules) The format also allows for multiple people to share the same car.

Thanks to NASA Rally Sport we will be running under the Rally Moto rules as well. This means motorcycle entries will be allowed. For you motorcycle riders that want to pretend for a day that you are racing across the great plains of Africa or South America (active imagination not included) this is your chance to live out you Dakar fantasy without leaving Texas. This will definitely be the most interesting Thanksgiving weekend the Texas Motorsports scene has seen in as long as I have been racing at the very least if not ever. You don't even have to miss Thanksgiving dinner with the family.

Come on out and check out the fun. Race or cheer we want you here.

We will also be hosting the Texas Rallysport rallycross #11 on Sunday at Brianne Corn Raceway. All are welcome there as well.No cage necessary for this event.

For more information go to:

Withdrawal: Entry minus $50.
Entry Link:
Supplemental Regulations:

We could use as many people as we can get our hands on. Primarily volunteers would be course workers--start, finish, timing, scoring, etc. At the moment we believe that dedicated HAM workers will not be necessary. The more volunteers the quicker things will run and the less we will rely upon any of the competitors for any "work". If need be however, the event will run like your local callycross with competitors being "tagged" with working while others race and then swapping out. Volunteering Link:

Entry List

Stage Info:
A common question has been: How many miles will the event be? Somewhere between 20-40 total miles would be a reasonable expectation.


Saturday 11/24/12
6am - waiver signing and safety check starts
8-9 - recce (1 pass) and stage set up/completion
9-10 - Built in hour to accomodate delays
10:01 - first car off
1-2 (approx)break for lunch
2-2:15 setup for next Group
2:15-6 - repeat as above

This schedule will be entirely flexible and change as conditions warrant. Please bring your lunch/food/fuel as necessary to the site as supplies are not within immediate (read 5 minutes or less) from the location. If you are not present at the time needed the event will move forward without you.

This is a casual event run on a non-casual schedule. It doesn't count for points for anything and there is no cash prize for winning. So while the primary purpose is to have fun, test your car, race in a new location with hopefully new people and new vehicles, the secondary goal is to get as much mileage in as possible. While things will not be rushed at the expense of safety the intent is to keep the pace "brisk". If you need to fix something, fix it and get back in line at the next opportunity. Your co-driver gets sick? Tell him or her to go puke and then get back in line at the next opportunity. We will attempt to keep breaks and downtime to a minimum.

Make NASA Rally Sport and Harris Hill Raceway proud when it comes to what stickers you have on your car. Hitting an arrow is a 5 second penalty. Blowing through tape and breaking it is a 10 second penalty. Being a "jackass" warrants immediate expulsion from the event subject to the sole discretion of any Harris Hill Raceway Staff or event organizer.

Multiple drivers sharing a single car (providing they both paid separately) is allowed. Roll cage and all safety gear required. Codrivers not required. Reg/Insurance not required. All entries/cars subject to approval by Anders and event organizer. There will be two classes, 2WD and AWD.

I wish I was close enough to watch this spectacle or drive in it. I have lots of fast dirt road driving experience from my misguided youth. And I do enjoy the European rally videos.

They didn't get enough entries, so it was cancelled.
