Oregon Trail Rally

April 20 - 22, 2007

Portland, OR

National Rally Championship Event

The third race on Rally America’s schedule, Oregon Trail takes place in the woods outside the city of Portland. With fast stretches combined with twisting wooded runs through the Tillamook State Forest this rally is always packed with excitement. The lush, wet woods provide trees and ditches galore that are constant worries for the drivers and their co-drivers. This rally is very fan friendly with spectator sites scattered all along the course.

// Venue

The Pacific Northwest weather is an ever changing variable. With rain likely in April, the roads can be extremely muddy and wet; however, it is just as possible for them to be dry and dusty. Dropping temperatures may, in extreme situations, even create snow and sleet which can wreak havoc on the course. This Oregon Trail may not be as treacherous as the one that the pioneers encountered, but these drivers and their crews can definitely expect the unexpected!
