What is RallyCross?
Rallycross is a form of SCCA solo racing. Think of it as Autocross on dirt. We make a course from cones in a flat dirt area. Cars compete against the clock one-at-a-time.

We run a 10-event season at 5 locations. Some are gravel parking lots, some are hard-packed dirt, some can be muddy, and a couple are ice. We're a small group of usually 35-50 competitors. We normally make 3 or 4 runs in the morning in two run groups, then we take a lunch break, and we run the course in reverse 3 or 4 runs in the afternoon. "Fun Runs" are common after the competition is complete.

We only have 5 classes. They can be summarized this way:

Open - Usually 4WD or AWD cars. Engine is unrestricted with the following exceptions:
    Engine block must be derived from the product line of the vehicle manufacturer
    Adjusted displacement cannot exceed 5100cc (See the rules page for more information)
Group 5 - Larger displacement, modified 2WD cars, supercharging allowed
Group 2 - Modified 2WD, normally aspirated cars with engine displacement near 2 liters
Production GT - Turbocharged 2 liter AWD cars, or larger displacement FWD cars. Usually Subaru Impreza WRXs, or Impreza RSs
Production - 2 liter FWD cars, or smaller displacement AWD cars. Usually VW Golf/Jetta's, Honda Civics, Toyota Celicas and Corollas, Nissan Sentras, and older Subaru DLs and GLs.

Nice, that is the route I will be going with the Scout this Summer. If it's something that will most likely get scratched up, I don't want to pay a lot for it.
