Texas Rally Sprint near Austin for motorcycles and all caged cars

I'm taking this straight off their Facebook page:

Texas will have a rally this year! This is your chance to get a taste of rally without having to travel half way across the country. And we have a format that allows for you to compete and get the full rally experience without the hassle of needing lights, tags and a state inspection. Just about any road race legal car that passes tech will be eligible to compete. We have gone to great lengths to ensure that Chumps and Lemons car can compete here. You can run with or without a codriver (under the new rally solo rules) The format also allows for multiple people to share the same car.

Thanks to NASA Rally Sport we will be running under the Rally Moto rules as well. This means motorcycle entries will be allowed. For you motorcycle riders that want to pretend for a day that you are racing across the great plains of Africa or South America (active imagination not included) this is your chance to live out you Dakar fantasy without leaving Texas. This will definitely be the most interesting Thanksgiving weekend the Texas Motorsports scene has seen in as long as I have been racing at the very least if not ever. You don't even have to miss Thanksgiving dinner with the family.

Come on out and check out the fun. Race or cheer we want you here.

We will also be hosting the Texas Rallysport rallycross #11 on Sunday at Brianne Corn Raceway. All are welcome there as well.No cage necessary for this event.

I don't have a good video or picture of the finished course, but I do have video of the first cut of the actual course, and another video of another course that was groomed the same way.

Here is a video of the first cut of the course to show the length and terrain.

Preliminary H2R RallyCross track laps at speed w/Brianne Corn! - YouTube

Here is a video of the rallycross track nearby that shows the level of grooming and width of the track.

Also, this requires a NASA Rally Sport license and a NASA membership. The membership is good for 356 days, but the NRS license is only good for the calendar year. To make it easier Ander Green of NRS will only be charging competitors $5 for the NRS license.

It's not clear from the instructions, but Motorcycle entries are half the price of car entries. Something about being twice as fun, or half the damage, or something like that. :-P

Not enough info given to even consider it as a motorcyclist. 40 miles is not even a warmup. There are many other better options for racing offroad motorcycles in Texas than what is shown here..

Short notice is better than no event. :)

Please give us a good review of the event and some major heads-up for next year. Sounds like something I would have considered.

Oh yeah, and...

From the website: "A common question has been: How many miles will the event be? Somewhere between 20-40 total miles would be a reasonable expectation."

What gives with that? $125 early entry and you get to ride 40 miles at best? Doesn't compute

$125 will get me three great enduros or HS. I don't think the OP knows anything about competetive offroad motorcyclists.

LOL. I'm not an offroad racer but the Rally Raid route at RTB III (which wasn't supposed to be a race) was almost 300 miles and about 80% dirt. That was ran in one day.

I am familar with competitive offroad motorcycle events. This is another option. It's geared towards rally cars. But allowances have been made to allow motorcycles also. That is why there is a disparity between the motorcycle-only events and NASA Rally or Rallysprint events.

I would love to do it on my TE 450 but not for $125.
