Stafford Springs, CT — With the colder temperatures beginning to bring snow to the Northeast, Stafford Motor Speedway is gearing up for its first event of its 2011 schedule with the Engraving Awards and Gifts RallyCross and Eastern States RallyCross Challenge Championship on January 15 and 16.
As part of the New England Region SCCA RallyCross season, drivers will participate in two New England Region Championship events as well as the Eastern States RallyCross Challenge Championship over a two-day period. Drivers will be eligible to win SCCA Contingency Awards and they will compete to establish who is the best RallyCross driver in the Northeast.
RallyCross is a timed competition pitting a driver and vehicle against a defined course. Courses are set up on a non-paved surface such as dirt, gravel, or snow, and drivers attempt to make their way through the course as fast as possible. At the end of the event, all of a driver’s times are added together. The total times of each driver within a class are compared and the driver with the lowest cumulative time in each race class is the winner. The Stafford course is setup throughout the vast parking lot at the Speedway with a series of both high and low speed corners.
