Apple Hill RallyCross II

Hello Audiphiles in the Northeast! Sorry for those who this doesn't
concern, but it is "about that time" to pull out your helmets for the
Apple Hill RallyCross 2 on October 12, 1997!!
For those of you who aren't familiar with it, here is a description:
It is a combination of rally and autocross. The course is offroad, tight
and technical, yet the car can attain some pretty high speeds,
especially our AWD cars, no matter engine output! Rallying is based much
more on traction and driver skill rather than on outright power, after
all. Unlike an autocross, however, not only your best run, but ALL of
your runs will count for a combined time. There will be prizes for all
of the class winners. It is great fun, and at RallyCross 1, Audis
sweeped the top positions of all of the classes, (except, of course
Truck) With a 10Vt Audi PRO Rally spec car winning the event outright, a
Coupe Q coming in second overall, a 200 turbo rally car (albeit slightly
damaged from the rally the previous day) coming in third and another
4000 in fourth overall, Audis definitely ruled! 
It is a great place to "open 'er up", pretend to be a rally racer, while
doing so safely. It is held on a large, privately owned field which is
quite smooth, so even lowered cars, such as my Coupe, really won't have
clearance problems.

It will be held on Sunday, October 12th, at Apple Hill in Middleburgh,
NY, about 20 miles south of Albany. It costs $40 dollars (down from
$50), and that will allow for between 4-8 runs on the course, one run
equalling two laps. AWD drive cars definitely have an advantage, and
snow tires are highly recommended. A snell approved helmet is REQUIRED

Hey! Audis aren't meant to be talked about on the internet, they're
meant to show their "vorsprung durch technik" in low traction
situations... come on out!

Tell them I told you to call.

Disclaimer- I have no affiliation with the organizers of this event, I
had just had a ball the last time I did it, and can't wait to do it
again! Oh yeah, It's not my fault if you shift from second to reverse
like some dolt going 30 mph did at the last rally cross, or anything
else which would otherwise damage you or your precious car. Seriously,
though, no cars were damaged at the last event, and everyone had a great
time. I hear it will be bigger and better than before, and to reiterate;
It is a boatload of fun, so invite your fellow minded, car freak
friends, and I hope to see you there!
