For tomorrow only, Blackjacks is putting on an excellent breakfast buffet for our competitors. Your entry fee ($65) will not only get you a fun filled day of adrenaline behind the wheel, but will also include the breakfast buffet. For all those who are interested in coming to watch or support their friends and family can purchase a breakfast ticket at $10 each.

Don’t forget that all entries received by midnight will be entered in to win one of two prizes – an Edmonton Rally Club T-shirt or one free entry to the year end double-header!  You can pay via PayPal, credit card, or pay cash on site.

Nov 6 – Rallycross Championship Event #10

The Edmonton Rally Club is pleased to offer Rallycross Championship Event #10, to be held at Blackjack’s Roadhouse.  Be sure to arrive early for breakfast, take advantage of their lunch menu, and stick around for wings and drinks (or dinner buffet) after the event!

We’re looking forward to our second event in this large, open gravel parking lot.

Please note that Registration will open at 9 am, with the mandatory driver’s meeting to take place at 10:30 am, to accommodate more runs for everyone.

Please pre-register in our shop, as there will be a limit on the maximum number of cars that can run.

See you on Sunday!

Rallycross Championship Event #9 — The Roadhouse Rallycross —

It is the Edmonton Rally Club’s extreme pleasure to present to you the Rallycross Championship Event #9 – The inaugural Roadhouse Rallycross!

With the weather forecast for the weekend being so unreliable, the board decided to find an alternate venue in order to ensure that we could run an event this weekend.  We are pleased to have partnered with Blackjacks Roadhouse in Nisku, AB to bring you this event.  We will be running RCC#9 in the large gravel parking lot to the west of Blackjacks.

Registration will open at 9:30.  Be sure to come down early to enjoy a spectacular breakfast at Blackjacks (not included in entry fee – sorry!).  Their food is awesome and well priced.

Don’t forget!  Bring a friend who hasn’t come out to Rallycross before and you get $20 off your entry, and your friend will get $20 off the next time that they join us!

Buy your entry here! Or at least pre-register, and pay on site.  We take cash, cheque, and credit (sorry, no debit at this time).

Rallycross Championship Event #9

As of right now, Rallycross Championship Event #9 will be happening on October 2nd, 2016, at Bill’s Field.

Registration is now open in our Shop.

Please check back to our website both on Saturday October 1 to be sure the event is still happening.  There is a significant amount of rain in the forecast, and we’re hoping that changes before the day of the event.  If there is too much rain, we will have to cancel in order to preserve the field.  Please be sure to check back on our Facebook page, or our website, before packing up and leaving home on Sunday morning.

Thanks, and we hope to see you on Sunday!

July 2016 General Meeting Minutes and Announcements

Hi all,

Glad to see everyone who came out to the ERC meeting this past week.  Here are the minutes for that meeting: ERC Meeting Minutes – 2016-07-13

Announcements!

  1. Volunteering! If you volunteer in one of our “named” volunteer positions (registration, timing and scoring, gatekeeper), you will earn $30 off your next entry fee.  The board has decided to go this route because generally those people are the first ones to have their runs scrapped if the day gets shortened, or if something goes wrong and needs more attention (ie. timing goes down, and we move to manual timing, etc.).  We do want to see a variety of people trained in those positions, so when people take vacation, or are not able to be there, there is a volunteer base who is ready to step in.  There will only be 4 of these volunteers each event, so please let us know if you’re interested.  Mike and Kait will be away in August, and while Brandon is a pro at running Rallycross, it sucks to do it by yourself!
  2. Bring a Friend!  At the upcoming August event (and events following, until the program is discontinued), we will be running a “Bring a Friend” promotion.  Any person brings a friend who enters as a driver at a Rallycross (and has never been to rallycross before) will receive a coupon that is good for $20 off their next event.  The friend will also get a coupon for $20 off their next event OR  yearly membership.  The coupons must be used on later events, and do not apply to the event at which they were handed out at.  Coupons can be used in person or on the website.  Unfortunately, coupons cannot be redeemed at motorsportreg.com at this time.
  3. MORE RALLYCROSS!  Due to having to cancel some events and just having crummy spring weather, we’ve decided to add some dates to the Rallycross Championship.  The rest of the Rallycross Championship season will now be as follows: August 14, September 11, October 2, October 16, November 6, November 20, December 10 & 11.  These events will all happen at the Rallycross Park in Devon, except December 11, which will happen at Castrol Raceway.  Updates to our Calendar and to our Championship pages to reflect these added events will be coming!
  4. A Baby Loon! – Mike and Kait are thinking about running a novice TSD event in the fall, which will be a much shorter version of the Northern Loon – basically from Drayton Valley back to Edmonton.  We expect it would take about a half day to do.  It would be geared as an introductory event for the Edmonton Rally Club members, to get them prepped and comfortable with TSD, or just to try it out without having to make the commitment of running a full length TSD.  It would be a good time to try different strategies, learn how a TSD works, or try your hand at checkpointing or other volunteer positions.  Rallywest runs a TSD Championship every year, and we’re hoping to increase interest in TSD in Alberta (there are lots of events in Saskatchewan and BC – opportunity to travel!).  More information to come!
