Magnum Opus roads are fast and flowing county roads around the Newberry, MI area.  Road conditions are mostly packed sand and gravel with some sections of hard packed clay, mixed in, which will make some stages slippy if wet.

Competitors should expect quick times, as the stage roads are normally wide with minor elevation changes to keep drivers on their toes and grip in their tires.  Road direction changes are telegraphed by clearly defined tree lines and no “gotchas” to surprise the competitor.

The Comfort Inn of Newberry will be the offical HQ for Magnum Opus.

There is a discounted room rate for rally guests and competitors use code : ” Magnum Opus ” When calling the hotel
