These condensed supplementary regulations are designed to help first time participants as well as those who have run elsewhere before but are not familiar with our procedures. They explain the region’s rules and guidelines to ensure our events run smoothly and to help clarify any questions. All competitors are responsible for reading and understanding our rules and regulations. The full list of our supplemental regulations can be found here.
Entry Requirements: Competitors must be SCCA Members. SCCA Weekend Memberships will be available at registration for $15.00 which can be applied towards a full membership. There is no fee for passengers or crew but they must fill out an SCCA weekend membership form. A competitor must be a minimum of 16 years old and those under 18 must have an SCCA minor waiver. Passengers must be at least 12 years old or 57” tall with a properly sized helmet. All passengers must sign the event waiver.
A competitor must possess a valid driver’s license or driving permit and present it at registration. Permit or restricted licenses are permitted according to SCCA National RallyCross rules. If a driving permit requires a parent/legal guardian, that person or an approved instructor must be present in the vehicle during all parade and competition runs.
SCCA Members $50
Non-members $70 (Non-member prices include a weekend membership which can later be applied to a full SCCA membership)
This event is limited to a total of 60 competitors.
Competitors must be prepared to present their valid driver’s license, and may be required to provide a valid SCCA Membership Card or proof of Weekend Membership purchased for the weekend when checking in or registering at the event venue.
We will traditionally have two sessions of competition, a morning session and an afternoon session, with course changes between sessions. Certain events may also have a night session with a test & tune session in the morning. Competitors will be separated into four run groups. Run groups will be comprised of complete car classes and to have roughly the same number of drivers.
All competitors are required to work during the event. If you are not running, you are working your assignment. You will receive a work assignment during the drivers meeting. Failure to fulfill your work assignment will result in disqualification from the event and potentially future events as well.
Technical Inspection and Helmets:
Competitor vehicles will be inspected to verify that they are in proper working order and safe for competition use. Items to be inspected may include but are not limited to:
- compliant numbers
- seat belts
- wheel bearings
- ball joints
- lug nuts
- throttle return
- battery tie-down
Vehicles with major fluid leaks will not be permitted. Helmets must be Snell 2005 or newer (M2005 or SA2005) or equivalent. Loaner helmets are available. A tech inspector, event chairperson, or RallyCross director reserves the right to refuse any that does not meet these requirements. Appropriate tires (I.E. winter tires with sufficient tread for snowy/muddy events) are strongly recommend for all competition vehicles.
Competitor vehicles must be at least as wide as they are tall. The vehicle’s width is determined by measuring the distance between the outermost portion of each tire. The width must be greater than height measured to top of roof on both axles. Vehicles that appear to pose a rollover risk may be disqualified at the discretion of a safety steward, event chairperson, or program director. Midsize or larger pickup trucks, SUVs, CUVs and Jeep Wranglers are not permitted for competition. Compact pickup trucks and small/compact SUVs/CUVs will be permitted subject to approval by a tech inspector, event chairman and RallyCross director. Permitted trucks, CUVs and SUVs must be stock ride height or lower. Studded tires (including tires with DOT studs) are not permitted.
Detroit Region SCCA has loaner helmets in various sizes available for competitors and passengers.
Two-driver cars will take their runs in the following order: 1st driver takes half of their runs, followed by 2nd driver taking all of their runs, followed by the 1st driver taking the remainder of their runs.
Competitors will choose a one, two or, three-digit number at registration. Numbers are to be clearly displayed on each side of the car. Compliant numbers must be applied to receive a tech sticker. Numbers should be at least 8” high and of a contrasting color. Class letters are also recommended and should be approximately 4” high and of a contrasting color. 2- driver cars should have a fast and effective method for changing numbers.
