June 21 and 22. Two day rallycross featuring tough competition, fun, and excitement.....maybe even a little rain to make it more interesting.

I'll be there.
Here's last year's summary of the M4s.

"Crushing May Flowers" SCCA National/Divisional RallyCross Hillsboro, OR May 5-6th
This SCCA event makes its first appearance in the Northwest. After traveling to Thunderhill Raceway last year to contest the San Francisco Region's National event (took second in SA driving a bone stock white 2002 Subaru TS wagon behind a prepped STi), the team was eager to compete in a National event closer to home and worked hard to make sure the RallyCross happened. Special thanks to Ben Bradley, Ben Trujillo, the HALES and the TABORS for getting this event off-the-ground and a good success. It was a 2-day format with 2 practice laps and 5 timed laps on Saturday's long course and 4 timed laps on Sunday's shorter course (but combined with a REGIONAL event. THIS LINK will take you to a GPS image of Sunday's course (it goes counter clockwise). Also see a neat satellite image of the field where the events occur CLICK HERE.
30 entrants into the National took to the field on Saturday and found a challenging course with technical and speed elements, but the most fun being an "expanding" slalom and beautiful cambered right turn into the finish straight. Eric Zapareski in a modified Impreza AWD led the field at the end of the day with 5 clean, solid runs. Bill Price in an Audi had top raw times, but was haunted by high cone counts. Andy Howe drove solidly but gathered 2 cones and fell to 5th overnight. After hitting 2 cones himself, Paul battled back to 2nd overall with 2 solid final runs. In a NATIONAL event, all runs are scored (no drops like autocross). Eklund came out of the starting gate strong, trying to make up the 2.2 second deficit to "Zap", but fell further behind after hitting a cone on his second run. It took 2 more heroic laps to make up the time, but Paul moved ahead of Eric and into first overall and first in the Modified AWD class with a 2.3 second margin of victory. Click here to see the complete results both by CLASS and overall.

Yea, I don't know how that happened. I noted the discrepancy between the ORG date and SCCA date back in March and notified ORG. Apparently ORG folded on the date and never updated the calendar until recently. I'm sorry you'll be missing this.

Not usually wet and muddy; the first event this year was, but the next two were pretty dry. Current weather patterns could have another wet one, but we won't know until it happens. A pleasure to have someone "non local" at the event. Welcome to the great Northwest.

Zap, looks like www.scca.com; this from Paul Eklund:

Remember at National Qualifier events, there is no limit to the number of runs and none get dropped for scoring. Hopefully we can get 8 on Sat and another 4 on Sunday... Also, there is CONTINGENCY MONEY available from VW, SUBARU, and TEAM DYNAMICS Doesn't look like you need to pre-register for the RALLYCROSS, but you do need to pre-register for CONTINGENCIES (see form on scca.com) and of course be a full SCCA member...

Good luck finding it; I always have trouble navigating around the SCCA website.

Well, it looks like I'm screwed. In order to renew my membership, I have to log in to their site, which requires a password. Which I never had. Which means I have to request a password, which will go to my old email address. . .

Ok, I was able to renew my membership by phone. Wheras I couldn't find any contact #s on their site, luckily my wife suggested I look at the mail tehy constantly send me. I did, and the number was there. I can log in, but cannot for the life of me figure out how to preregister for the contingency. :confused:

Thanks Zap, I thought it was just me. Glad to see one of the young bucks having trouble with the site too.

The local weather guys say there will be some scattered showers on Saturday and a high around 77; so chances are that it will be on the muggy side. They are predicting 85 for tomorrow so the field will be dried out quit a bit.

I have other plans for Saturday during the day but I may catch you guys for dinner; if not see ya Sunday.

You'd do better to ask Sean his addy or follow us after Saturday's racing is over. I ca barely find my way around PDX, much less tell others how to. :o

Max, a pleasure to meet you out in Hillsboro. You're a fine competitor and a class act. You certainly know how to handle your car and it's a screamer. Sorry we couldn't spend more time with you but I can understand the need to get back on the road heading home to the Denver area. Safe trip home. I hope you signed up for the Subaru contingency stuff.
