Anybody heading out to the rally's to spectate this summer? If you have never been and there is one somewhere in your area I highly recommend it. It's a ton of fun and it's about as cheap as motorsport spectating gets.

For me it's a camping weekend with some great driving and a big car nerd party mixed in.

I am headed to Ojibewe Forests Rally in northern MN in August and possibly Pikes Peak.

Check out the American Rally Association website for a schedule of the big time national events. There are usually plenty more regional/local events as well.

Hope to see some FiST folk in the woods this summer!

I am heading to both the New England Forest Rally in Maine/N.H. late July, and Susquehannock Trail Performance Rally in north central Pennsyltuckeyvania mid September, this year.

I volunteer with helping run these events, which is a great way to see them, and get to drive down the full stage roads (which spectators cannot do on the days of the events).

I will 'prep' the car (skid plate on, heavier oil change, bigger than RallyArmor mud flaps on, 'rally' wheel/tire setup on) for NEFR in mid July. [wink]
I am also an ARA member.

Yeah, I had a conversation with Ken Block at the awards party/barbecue after NEFR last year, about WHY his Escort Cossie burned to the ground on the stage I was working at the time.

Yeah, we even have a 'Super Regional' ARA event that I am planning on attending in late October in lower upstate N.Y., which will be the closest actual performance rally to anywhere I've ever lived! [thumb]

There used to be a Sand Hills Pro Rally held in South Carolina many years ago.
