South West Regional Rally
Known for its smooth stages, challenging switchbacks, and the famous “Cow Corner” hairpin, the 2012 running of the North Nevada Rally will be a two-day event, with 40 miles of stages on Friday followed by 80 miles on Saturday.
The Friday stages will begin in the evening in Lovelock, NV. The competitors will get a “preview” of the stages by running 20 miles before nightfall. Then, after dark, they will run the same stages in the opposite direction.
Saturday will return to the well-known stages near Gerlach, home of Burning Man. The southern stage dips through some sandy washes, then leads to two big jumps, followed by a run through a canyon leading to the “Cow Corner” hairpin. The northern stage is of a completely different character, with tight turns and switchbacks leading up to the pass of Purgatory Peak.Associated Events: North Nevada Rally 2
