Not that far... Considering before T-hill stared having them, the only rallycrosses closest to Northern California were down by LA

Thumbs up

Impresiv - you should check around in your area - there's lots of Rally-X even in the winter, they run on ice/snow.

I just got back from the Rally-X and it was lots of fun - probably 60 cars or so showed up, plenty of PGT cars, 6 or so Open class which were fun to watch.

The rally school on saturday was really awesome. The driving time was brief, but great - they had a Figure 8 course, skid pad and slalom all on loose dirt/slick mud. Very Fun. A couple of the instructors were from the ProRally national ranks - Lauchlin O'Sullivan (Mistubishi) rode with me on the 8 & was working my e-brake to give me my car some encouragement - very fun!!

Yep, lots of fun. A little chilly, but much better than the 100+ temps we had back in July. I like that course, but man was it slick when it was wetted down. It was definitely a lot faster at the end during the fun runs. I just wish I hadn't popped my tire off.

Oh well. Thanks to some help from iBlueVirus and a lot of help from MoDrift (remind me to bring my own jack next time), I got it reseated, and it seems to be fine. At any rate, I drove the 180 miles home on it without any problems.

Pretty cool weekend, all in all. It was great to have a place to practice left-foot braking and doing e-brake turns, and I even managed to snag a ride in Terry Stonecipher's rally truck.
