Sounds like fun Limey! I wonder what I'd do with a spare set of Team Dynamics...?

TIM Announces Unique New Race Series
Michigan Race of Champions is a unique new form of motorsport which is a combination of US style AutoCross WRC Super Special, Race of Champions and X-Games Rally. Conducted on a 100% paved course, cars start of at half a lap apart and pusrue each other over the course of a lap or two of the tight and twisty track. First car back to their start position wins. Often an event will consist of timed heats with the fastest 8 drivers going head to head in a knockout competition to determine the overall winner. More seat time per dollar than almost anything else you can do without a cage. Points are awarded throughout the season to determine the season champion.
SERIES WINNER RECEIVES A SET OF TEAM DYNAMICS WHEELS!
unique head to head knock-out format

I ran in something like this at a super rally x practice a few years ago. It was a blast!

Looks like a hoot! Approximate entry fee?

Need a new logo? Also, I may actually try to come out to one of these this year.

You have me interested, so pretty much all the info you need is on the site?

No...It's Not A Race, It's A Ralli !
I'm looking forward to being able to participate now. The previous events wouldn't allow me to use the Jeep and now that it's all tarmac, I plan on bringing out the Mustang. Good stuff Paul!
Sounds like fun.
One question; gloves are required? I haven't found any that I actually like, but then again, I'm probably only looking at doing a couple of these, and not the series. No bare-handers, though?

Hey Paul, could you compare / contrast this to autocross in regards to speeds, course length, and risk?
Maybe this was stated but I didn't see it the website so I will ask. Are the starts during the elimination rounds staggered like in bracket racing?
