New England Forest Rally

July 15 - 16, 2011

Newry, ME

National Rally Championship Event

Challenging logging roads with some of the longest stages on the circuit set the tone for the New England Forest Rally.  Always a favorite with drivers due to the technical demands of the course, this rally is also a crowd pleaser because of its stunning scenery and wildlife.  Quintessential northeastern settings such as winding creeks and one-lane bridges add not only beauty to the race, but also added excitement when encountered by drivers at breakneck speeds.
