2017 “ALL STARS FOR AUTISM” RALLY…is rapidly taking shape. Scheduled for April 26-
So, let’s do a little Q & A:
Q: How many classes does the “All Stars” rally have?
A: For this event there are three classes:
*DFC (Dash For Cash). Open to any team that elects to run for cash awards
*RFF (Run For Fun) Open to any team that does not opt for DFC
*GH (Greenhorn) Open to first time rally teams only (special entry fee)
Q: Is there a limit on year model allowed? Why?
A: While we still use the car model year to determine the scoring age factor,
any year model is allowed.
Some teams elect to fly in and use a rental car in order to gain the “how to
rally” experience. In some cases their Greatrace car is under construction,
but they want to gain the experience.
Q: Are VCRA and Greatrace rules the same?
A: VCRA does have some distinct differences under the “vehicle modifications
allowed” section. Generally VCRA distinguishes “Age Factor Adjustments” for
some “other than produced” modifications in order to preserve the “age
factor” as outlined in the rules. Refer to the Rules & Regulations on the web

A: *Special rate for race teams at the host hotel -

LOOKING FOR A SPEEDO? We here at VCRA try to locate and purchase all the used speedos we can to pass on to those that are entering the sport..however, it seems with the surge of Rookie teams each year, the demand has exceeded the supply. We will continue to try to find the used ones, and, in the meantime, our good friend Bill Croker has been successful in his program of finding, and making available, used Timewise speedos. If in need, also try Bill for a speedo at firstname.lastname@example.org . He is the guy that initiated the “Rookie Mentor” program, so you can believe what he tells you!!

VCRA ANNOUNCES RULES CHANGES FOR 2017… so please review the updated “Rules & Regulations” on this web site. The changes (in red italics) were made after consulting with several VCRA participants , the VCRA “rules committee”, as well as conversations with Greatrace officials. We believe these changes will identify, and answer, many of the concerns of racers as the evolution of the sport continues. The bulk of the changes are in the “modifications allowed” section, and are relative to the adjustments to “Age Factor” in an effort to keep the “spirit of the age factor” intact, and improve the “safety factor” for the competitors.
Listed here is a bullet point review of some of the major changes:
#VCRA class designations
#Competitors insurance requirements
#Disc brake conversions allowed on any vehicle
#Radial or biased ply tires acceptable on any year model
#Age Factor adjustments for “equipment modifications” (see rules section IV)
These rules are effective as of January, 2017. Note that rules state that “any modifications must be declared at mandatory vehicle inspection” for any VCRA event. Age Factor adjustments, if any, will be made at that time.
