Rally: Stage and TSD
A car rally is basically a test of teamwork -- car, driver and co-driver (navigator) must all work in unison. In all types of rallies the object is to travel from point A to B with the fewest penalties. There are two different types of car rallies. The NAVIGATIONAL RALLY requires some interpretation of the instructions as to the route to be taken. Penalties are assigned for early or late arrival at unknown checkpoints. The STAGE RALLY entails very simple instructions; the true competition is undertaken on the designated STAGES, where the car moves through the route as quickly as possible.
Autoslalom is a terrific sport for any car enthusiast. Autoslalom, also known as Solo 2 or autocross, is a timed competition that pits car and driver against the clock on a mini-road course laid out in a parking lot with pylons, designed by club members. Currently the CSCC is running autoslalom events at the Airdrie Airpark (tuesday evenings) and the Westerner Lot in Red Deer. Club members compete in other events throughout Canada and the USA.
Ice Dice / Rallycross
Ice Dice is a simplified version of summer AutoCross with the main difference being that it is run on a frozen lake surface. Rallycross is similar, and usually runs in a gravel parking lot. Just like summer AutoSlalom a course of those highway orange pylons are set out and cars run through the course against the clock for the fastest time. There is no “door to door” racing as cars are released onto the course with a safe interval between each car
Calgary Sports Car Club members participate in circuit track and road racing from May through October at Castrol Raceway in Leduc, and other tracks throughout North America. Road Racing is one of the most challenging forms of motorsport for competitors and one of the most exciting for spectators.
