 DirtX will debut this year as a demonstrative discipline. The intention is to garner some interest while keeping the requirements and cost of participation to a minimum. We plan on holding one or two events between May and September. 

The DirtX concept is similar to Autoslalom. Envision 1km courses on various loose surfaces. This is a timed solo sport activity where drivers can expect to hit speeds of +\- 80 Kmph. Each event will feature multiple runs on more than one configuration.

Cars will be classed only by AWD, FWD and RWD for this season. As long as your car is well maintained, complete and dimensionally wider than tall it SHOULD be permitted to participate. Full race cars, ice racers and heavily modified cars should speak with @Al Marcoux prior to attending. An SA2015 helmet will be mandatory equipment. More specific “supplementary regulations” will be posted here soon.

Could you clarify the helmet requirement, will other helmet certification be allowed? 

Is there anything information available on which rule set this discipline will be following? WMCA does not list rally cross or dirt related solo events. However The only available resource appears to be the SCCA Rallycross rulebook found here: https://www.scca.com/downloads/53337-2021-scca-rally-cross-rules/download and the WCMA auto slalom rule book, found here is very similar: http://wcma.ca/new/soloregs/2020_Canadian_National_Autoslalom_Regulations.pdf

Both of these resources provide a comprehensive list of acceptable helmets such as this list from the rallycros rules: 

Snell SA2020, SA2015, SAH2015, SA2010, SAH2010, SA2005, M2020D, M2020R, M2015, M2010, M2005, K2020, K2015, K2010, K2005, EA2016

SFI 31.1 (2015, 2010, 2005), 41.1 (2015, 2010, 2005), 24.1 (2020, 2015, 2010 2005)

British spec BS6658‐85 types A and A/FR;

ECE 22.05, R22.05;

FIA 8860‐2018, 8860‐2018‐ABP, 8859‐2015, 8860‐2010, 8860‐2004

 

 

Thank you for those involved in creating this new discipline!

The rule book will be similar to the above with a specific set of Supplemental Regulations.
 

Please keep in mind we are in the very early stages of planning and more specific info will be posted as soon as it’s available.

We are all very excited for DirtX!

If an alternate location is needed, pm me about my 72 acres 20 mins from the perimeter.
