The Basics
How Old?
Rallycross is open to all ages, and was the first sport to offer a dedicated class for under 17’s. The Junior class caters for 14 to 17 year olds and you can compete in any senior category at age 16 as long as you have the appropriate licence. Licences
British Rallycross is classed as a speed event, to compete you will a Speed National B license from the MSA this can be obtained for £36. This licence then can be upgraded as you develop experience. If you already have experience in Circuit Racing or Rallying, your current licence should suffice. (Please contact MSA for clarification) If under 16 and never raced before a Free licence can be obtained from the MSA. The Classes
Supercar ‐ The exciting class The fastest cars in Rallycross and possibly the most exciting racecars that you will ever see. Averaging more than 550bhp, the four‐wheel drive, turbocharged cars will out accelerate a F1 car, but are capable of racing on tarmac and gravel surfaces. Supermodified ‐ The technical Class The only real restriction here is that the cars are only allowed two‐wheel drive. There are few technical restrictions and the watch words in creating a successful car are power and weight; successful cars in the class pack a punch of around 400bhp per tonne. Stock Hatch ‐ Ideal for beginners Production cars with an upper engine capacity limit of 1600cc. A new class has been introduced to encourage more modern cars in 2008. There are tight controls on the tuning modifications permitted to the cars which means that driver ability shows through Junior Rallycross ‐ For the youngsters Open to drivers of between 14 and 16‐years of age, Junior Rallycross uses 1000cc Minis prepared to a controlled technical specification and a control tyre.. Has spawned stars such as Andrew Jordan, Ben Power and Adam Gould. Hire Cars
Safety
Upmost in all our minds is safety. Although a robust sport, Rallycross is
SAFE. All competitors are required to use MSA certified Safety Helmets,
Fireproof overalls and are recommended to use proper Race Boots and
Race Gloves.
Comprehensive technical regulations mean that cars are built to the
highest of safety standards, including Certified roll cages, extinguishers
and electrical safety devices.
The Cost
The cost is entirely up to you, the cheapest option is to hire a car for 1
event and the most expensive is to build or buy a car yourself. A basic
hire car can cost from £500 and there is always a variety of cars for sale
on www.rallycrossuk.com.and other motorsport sales sites.
Photo Courtesy of Henk De Winter / ERC24 An ideal way to try the sport is by using of the variety of hire cars
available. There are hire cars available in all classes both here and
in Ireland. The majority of deals are arrive and drive, which eases
the complications for your first time.
All you generally need is your own Race Helmet and Race Overalls
on the day, and the team will look after the rest.
Building a Car
Or you could build your own car to run. Not an easy job but
