WHO ARE WE?

Rally Ready is a passionate and diverse group of motorsport professionals with background in rallying, desert racing, road racing and business. What brings us together is a common passion for learning, teaching, and empowering our students, whether their goals are recreational or professional. As accomplished drivers, we understand what makes rallying so special and we have worked for over 6 years to put together the best facility in the world, in order to share the sights, sounds, smells and feels of rally racing. In 2009, the team first conceptualized the Rally Ready Driving School and after several years of planning and training, Rally Ready taught our inaugural class in the spring of 2012. 

"The team you are part of is remarkable.  We're novices, even as spectators.  We were worried.  In an industry such as racing, we were a little afraid that we would meet blustering, arrogant, swaggering, down-talking specimens that couldn't carry a thought in a pail.  (Yeah.  Sorry about that.)  But your team is .... just.... remarkable.  To a man, they were smart and funny and capable and efficient and each as concerned as the next with a good day for all."

WHAT IS RALLY?

Rallying has been around since the dawn of the automobile. The first automobile competitions were grand events from city to city across countries and eventually continents. The drivers were daring pilots who threw caution to the wind and pushed themselves and their fragile vehicles to the absolute limit. Eventually, as cars grew faster, the navigator and co-driver began to play a more critical role describing the course to the driver in vivid detail with a set of specially prepared instructions called Pace Notes. Today, rallying takes on many forms. From the glitz and glam of the prestigious Monte Carlo Rally and the World Rally Championship all the way down to the grassroots SCCA Rallycross, the art of loose surface car control covers a vast array of series' and sports both domestically and internationally.

World Rally Championship

WRC is what hooks most of us on the sport of rally. It is the fastest cars, the fastest drivers and co-drivers racing on the best rally stages on earth. 

Rally America

The Rally America National Championship is the premiere stage rally series in North America. It is classic rallying at its finest. 

NASA Rally Sport

The National Auto Sport Association hosts some of the best organized and most fun rallies in the country. NASA offers regional events as well as their own rally National Championship and focuses a lot on driver education.

Global Rallycross

In the U.S., Rallycross has traditionally been the same format as an autocross but on dirt. In 2011 we found out that not all rallycross was created equal. Global Rallycross is 6 cars wheel-to-wheel on a half paved, half unpaved circuit battling for top honors about as politely as a barfight. It's a wild spectacle.
