Nice!

I'd really like to go for a run on your course! Ours is longer, but it's on an old cornfield or something I think, there are usually some pretty nasty ruts and large rocks. Not to mention groundhog holes....

Yours looks all smooth and the dirt isn't too dry or too wet 8)

Come on down! That was the last event of the season but they start up in Febuary, iirc.

One of the other courses we run is basically just old farm paths that are really fast and smooth with tons of blind corners.

That looks very fun! I wish there were rallyx events closer to me. The closest is around 2hrs and thats too far away if I break something. But Ill prob try it anyway with my white 165.

Here is a link to my clubs site, it has links to other clubs in the surrounding areas.

Around here if you are willing to drive a little, you can pretty much find some sort of compitition every weekend but holidays.

Haha, I deff have some cleaning time on the Celica this week!

I DNFd by missing a cone on accident. I also lost a mud flap so thats why I had the same 2 cones on each pass. As I came by the cone in two different sections of the track the dirt jet from the rear driver's tire would tip over the cone.

Interesting. I would have never thought of that. I would have gone without flaps and just thought I was a really crappy driver.

Upon further review, I clearly hit at least one cone with the front of the car.
