Get ready for some serious hardcore off-road action as Hula-X (Hulacross!) and the Powderpuff Demolition Derby gets into high gear at Kalaeloa Raceway Park! On October 16th, 2010, at 8AM the gates open for the first ever continuous lapping offroad rallycross competition!
What is Hula-X?
Hula-X (AKA Hulacross) is a play on words mixing the native Hawaiian meaning for dance and the cross in rallycross. Hula-X racing consists of continuous lapping on a mixed terrain course consisting of dirt, coral, and aphalt. Beginning heats will last for a timed period of lapping with the best times posted as your spot time. Final Heats will be determined by these spot times taken early in the day with your best time as the final result. Initially, the event will center around timed lapping but as the series progresses, we'll focus more and more on wheel to wheel offroad racing, depending on the advancement of our drivers. The course will also feature passing zones, tabletop jumps, and mud pits where the best will be separated from the rest. There will also be a bit of strategy involved...you have the option of avoiding the tabletops and mudpits at your discretion, but possibly with a loss of time as you take alternate routes. All in all, it will be some of the first off-road action of it's kind on Oahu. Hulacross is also an inside joke...so if any of you hulagans are down for some offroad racing, then join us on Saturday as we tear it up.
Rules & Classes
Although personal vehicles are allowed, the course is designed primarily for a dedicated off-road vehicle mentality. We think you'll have more fun if you're not worried about driving to work in the same vehicle the following Monday. Classes will be limited to FWD, RWD, AWD, & Unlimited (ie, total race) vehicles. No ATVs or Motorcycles will be allowed on course due to insurance restrictions. All vehicles must be of sound body and construction and in decent running order and have at the minimum DOT standard seatbelts in place. Vehicles do not have to be street legal or registered. Vehicles with a high center of gravity will only be allowed at the discretion of the Event Manager. Participants must have helmet, long pants, shirts, and closed-toe shoes. For those of you interested in competing in the Wheel 2 Wheel class, we are looking for window nets & roll cages primarily. Additional safety equipment may be required.
For former Drift Session participants...yes...yes...drifting in the dirt is allowed. ;)
Fastest car wins! The purse will be:
1st Place/Fastest Lap Time = $1000

The Powderpuff Demo Derby!
In addtion, on the same day, we'll have the Powderpuff Demoliton Derby in support of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month! Beater vehicles of all types will converge in the center of the 1/4 mile dirt oval and compete until the final lovely lady emerges victorious! If you've ever seen a demoliton derby, then you know what to expect...if you haven't, then come on out and watch as these gals get down and dirty. Vehicles will be prepped and spray-painted pink with the graffiti of the team's choice, then they'll bash each other's cars until the last car running remains.
