2018 Winter RallyCross “Ice Dice”

Winter AutoCross is a simplified version of summer AutoCross with the main difference being that it is run on a loose surface aka gravel, ice, snow! AutoSlalom is 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 wheel to wheel racing as cars are released onto the course with a safe interval between each car. Since 1954 “Ice Dice” has a history with the Calgary Sports Car Club (CSCC).

The 1st part of the CSCC “Ice Dice” is the school CSCC Winter Driving Academy then is 4 events on Ghost Lake west of Cochrane Alberta. The biggest problem with the school & the Ice Dice events is both will sell out fast, so if you are interested sign up ASAP. Calgary Sports Car Club (CSCC) membership is not required but obviously suggested.

Participants are required to help setup the course, marshal when the vehicles are running and to help put away equipment. This they can make this grassroots form of motorsport affordable! Speeds seldom exceed 80 kph! It is a perfect place to learn, hone and refine your winter driving skills!

Any body with a valid driver’s license thought any one under 18 must have waivers from their legal guardians. SUV’s or any vehicle with excessively high centres of gravity are discouraged due to their tendency to tip over at any kind of speed! Safety is of the first importance! Tech Inspectors will rule on what is excessive!
