  View the Rally School Schedule (PDF)
The California Rally Series annual Rally School will feature a hybrid format in 2024, combining online class sessions with in-person instruction. Students will have the option of taking just the online course, or adding either or both the in-person driving training and the in-person co-driver training. The driving instruction will take place on Saturday, March 9 at the Antelope Valley Fairgrounds in Lancaster, CA, in conjunction with the Rodnoc Racing rallycross the next day (Sunday). The co-driving in-person instruction will take place in Ridgecrest, CA on Saturday, March 30.
There will be four online classes taking place on Tuesday and Thursday evenings starting on March 5 with an introduction to rally and rallycross. The Zoom seminars will begin at 7pm Pacific Time and last for two to two and a half hours. Each session will feature three separate presentations, with plenty of time in between for question and answer sessions where students can interact with our experienced instructors and panelists. Students will also have access to recorded versions of classes after each session.
Instructors include regional and national level championship drivers and co-drivers. Students taking the in-person driving course will need to provide their own vehicle suitable for rallycross.* Two students may share a vehicle. In-person students should indicate if they are interested in two-wheel drive or four-wheel drive instruction.
Topics include:
    How to get started in stage rally and rallycross
    Basic and advanced rally driving techniques
    How to prepare a car for stage rally
    What to look for when buying a prepared rally car
    Understanding controls and timing
    Rally navigation from tulips to stage notes
    Recce and writing your own notes
    Advanced co-driving
    Rally team management

Cost is $60 for the online-only course, $170 for the online course plus the in-person driving instruction on March 9, or $160 for the online course plus the in-person co-driving instruction on March 30. All options include CRS membership for 2024 (a $30 value). Students participating in the in-person instruction will also receive a discounted entry to the rallycross on March 10. There is a minimum of 10 and maximum of 35 students for the in-person driving session, and 12 students maximum for the in-person co-driving session.
