I was thinking about those events where each car races between marker cones for the fastest time, but heck, that kind of rally rocks, too.
I miss the sports report from Star Europe. Watching the 300+hp Cosworth (yep really bad spelling) powered Escorts plow through some scrub, flushing 20-30 spectators out of the woods.
I am thinking of doing the cone thing - you just need a valid SCCA license and shaved tires (not really required but a really nice addition). Not much up front costs and one isn't out much if one finds they just aren't that good.
I always wondered what it would be like to do your kind of rally at 'the Top of the World' course in California.
