Rallycross, also commonly referred to as “RX”, is an entry level form of performance rally but without a navigator. One of the most popular and accessible forms of rally racing, rallycross providing drivers with a low-cost entry point to the motorsport.

Rallycross is similar to autocross, except rather than being run on asphalt parking lots, rallycross is usually run on temporary circuits often in fields, but sometimes on off-road tracks. Surfaces can range from gravel & dirt to ice & snow. Drivers attempt to set their best time on an agility course marked by cones, limiting chance of damage to a competitor’s daily-driver. Cars are grouped in classes based on capability and level of modification.

Rally cross in Canada is not like the stages in Performance Rally; there are no jumps or ditches, and roll cages are not required. In Europe, some rally cross events have drivers on battling wheel-to-wheel on track, but in Canada, drivers race against the clock, emphasizing safety, and minimizing the chance of contact or damage.
