Hula-X & SCCA RallyCross Event Announcement

Hi all,

We've got some serious offroad action coming your way...we've got our next events scheduled!

Our next event weekend will be Sept 16th & 17th, 2010.

On Sept 16th, we're going to have a hardcore version of RallyCross called the Hula-X. Hula-X will be a timed continuous lapping session similar to the Super Lap Series except on dirt. There will be allowed passing in designated areas. We're recommending that vehicles be dedicated off-road...we're not quite sure you'll be wanting to drive your personal vehicles on this course. The course will begin in the lower west quadrant and wrap itself around the dirt oval with chicanes, some bumps, and maybe even some water traps. We're planning the course tomorrow morning so I'll have more info tomorrow. Barricades will be used in place of cones...hence my earlier suggestion that you might want to use a beater instead. We have a good amount of people interested in this already. Eventually, this series will include a Wheel 2 Wheel class for those that are judged capable and have their equipment up to snuff.

Fastest car wins! The purse will be:

1st Place/Fastest Lap Time = $1000
2nd Place/2nd Fastest Lap Time = $300
3rd Place/3rd Fastest Lap Time = $200


In addition, on the same day, we'll also have a PowderPuff Demo Derby, which will be 10+ Lady-driven Vehicles smashed and crashed in support of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

On the 17th, SCCA RallyCross will be back in action with the second event aptly named the "Who’s Serious? Come Get More RallyCross!". Love the names...heh...good stuff. It'll be more action, and Avery has already taken a look at the pros and cons of the first event, and will be improving the event. We'll also have our end at KRP in better care...with the water truck on constant standby and the track will be watered well.

So...get ready, we're about to get it started.

Sorry, racing stops for noone! :P

Hula-X is going to be awesome, but seriously hardcore. We laid out the course today...we've got multiple avenues of approach for the big torquey monsters and then some for the slower, less nimbler vehicles. For example, you can go straight through a table-top into a mud pit for the shortest route, but if your vehicle can't handle it, you can take the sweeper S-turn instead...depends on which way you think you can get the fastest time.

We're going to do a demo run this coming week, and then post a video of it so people can see what it will be like. It's gonna be pretty awesome!

In addition,

I'm sure they'll change it up...no doubt.

Since I'm posting, here's the Hula-X course.

Get ready for some serious hardcore off-road action as Hula-X (Hulacross!) and the Powderpuff Demolition Derby gets into high gear at Kalaeloa Raceway Park! On October 16th, 2010, at 8AM the gates open for the first ever continuous lapping offroad rallycross competition!

What is Hula-X?

Hula-X (AKA Hulacross) is a play on words mixing the native Hawaiian meaning for dance and the cross in rallycross. Hula-X racing consists of continuous lapping on a mixed terrain course consisting of dirt, coral, and aphalt. Beginning heats will last for 15 minutes of lapping with the best times posted as your spot time. Final Heats will be determined by these spot times taken early in the day with your best time as the final result. Initially, the event will center around timed lapping but as the series progresses, we'll focus more and more on wheel to wheel offroad racing, depending on the advancement of our drivers. The course will also feature passing zones, tabletop jumps, and mud pits where the best will be separated from the rest. There will also be a bit of strategy involved...you have the option of avoiding the tabletops and mudpits at your discretion, but possibly with a loss of time as you take alternate routes. All in all, it will be some of the first off-road action of it's kind on Oahu. Hulacross is also an inside joke...so if any of you hulagans are down for some offroad racing, then join us on Saturday as we tear it up.

Rules & Classes

Although personal vehicles are allowed, the course is designed primarily for a dedicated off-road vehicle mentality. We think you'll have more fun if you're not worried about driving to work in the same vehicle the following Monday. Classes will be limited to FWD, RWD, AWD, & Unlimited (ie, total race) vehicles. No ATVs or Motorcycles will be allowed on course due to insurance restrictions. All vehicles must be of sound body and construction and in decent running order and have at the minimum DOT standard seatbelts in place. Vehicles do not have to be street legal or registered. Vehicles with a high center of gravity will only be allowed at the discretion of the Event Manager. Participants must have helmet, long pants, shirts, and closed-toe shoes. For those of you interested in competing in the Wheel 2 Wheel class, we are looking for window nets & roll cages primarily. Additional safety equipment may be required.

For former Drift Session participants...yes...yes...drifting in the dirt is allowed.

Gates will open at 8AM, Driver's Meeeting at 8:30, Race at 9AM. We are in need of volunteers, so if you're interested please contact Michael Kitchens @ (808) 782-7432 or [email protected]his e-mail address is being protected from spambots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it

The Powderpuff Demo Derby!

In addtion, on the same day, we'll have the Powderpuff Demoliton Derby in support of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month! Beater vehicles of all types will converge in the center of the 1/4 mile dirt oval and compete until the final lovely lady emerges victorious! If you've ever seen a demoliton derby, then you know what to expect...if you haven't, then come on out and watch as these gals get down and dirty. Vehicles will be prepped and spray-painted pink with the graffiti of the team's choice, then they'll bash each other's cars until the last car running remains.

Admission to the park is only $10. Children under 10 get in free. Participant fee information is to be posted soon. We'll have more rules and class information up soon, so please watch the website!

For now, check out the current course design for the October 16th, 2010 Hula-X!

it's like autox, it'll always be different, as much as the terrain allows at least.

Yeah, I thought the second course version at the last event looked damn fun. Very flowing and the back straight was pretty cool.
