There is a group just north of Battleground that have started
a Rallycross Club and have a big field. They have already run a couple of events and are gaining experiance. They have an
event scheduled for August 9th that sounds like great fun.
Check their website <a href="http://www.fieldracing.com/index.htm" target="top">www.fieldracing.com/index.htm</a>
They are working their schedule around SCCA Oregon
division so you can do both. With the limited events the
SCCA is running, this could be great fun! Come out and
give it a try!

I found the info here:

One thing to note for everyone....

I asked him about insurance and helmets, no reply... so run at your OWN RISK... If I do indeed run, it will be at 90% probably, no way I would go all out with no insurance

I got an e-mail back finally, there are a couple of helmets floating around (like 2 I think he said). There is a liability waiver to protect the land owner. No insurance to protect those involved (I think that SCCA has it) I am gonna run anyway, but if the field is rough, I will take it easy.

Mike, where on their website did you see that the entry was only $10 if you entered on the website? I can't seem to find it.

Rumor has it that the event has been cancelled. Anyone else who can confirm this?

Event cancelled. Here's the info from the organizer:

To all Racers,

Due to the lack of water in the Portland area we will not have a water
wagon for the event on the ninth. I had one reserved and found out that
I will not be able to rent it now. I have called several rental
companies in Vancouver and Portland. The closest one is Bend Or And the
delivery cost is more than the rental.

With that, I have to sadly and officially announce the event canceled
due to safety and lack of interest.

I have put hundreds of dollars and hours into trying to make a go of
this and I do not want a small bump to destroy your ability to
participate in Rally at this level. I will move forward towards the next
event, plan on two water wagons (so I can get one) and I hope that you
can do the same and plan on attending September 27th.

If you have comments, concerns or questions please contact me.
