Hi all, this might be a really stupid question but I am new to motor cross. it’s my dads 70th soon and he can no longer ride, I wondered if there is any ‘car’ version of this sport that we could get him involved in or at least go to watch or be involved in!? Any feedback would be greatly appreciated as it is a massive passion of his. Thanks in advance

Rally/Rallycross is really cool. It's expensive but it's fun to watch and has a lot of similarities to MX I find.

There are a lot of circuits around the UK that offer driving experiences, there's a really cool place in Powys, Wales called Phil Price Rally School where you can drive a fully fledged WRC car for the day with an ex pro driver giving lessons! I'd check that out!

If talk is cheap, silence must be expensive because nobody can afford it!

1. Welcome
2. Please delete "motor cross" from your vocabulary; replace with motocross
3. Sidecar Motocross is quite popular in parts of Europe
4. The guy in the sidecar is known as "the monkey"
5. Tell your father he's the monkey and to get in and hold on tight

Motor Cross --- Motocross
Sidecar ---- Side by sides

It's all relative I guess

My dude, i wouldn't be the monkey even if you paid me with coke and hookers hourly... It is mindbogingly physically demanding and dangerous for young guys not speaking about old men.

I meant Side by Side, as in UTV, not Sidecar.



Side by Side




Sidecar

My dad got his first motocross bike at 72. He’s 75 now, and rides out at Cahuilla Creek every Wednesday.
