New England Forest Rally |

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.


Headquartered at the Sunday River Ski Resort in Newry, Maine and running east to Mexico, Maine and northwest to Errol, New Hampshire, this rally takes advantage of the outstanding hospitality of the area as well as the incredible roads that open up during the summer months when the ski season is over. Held on active logging roads, the course is one of the most intense on the circuit. Small lakes, big moose, and beautiful, wild scenery make this an epic rally not to be missed!


Warm, dry weather is consistent with summertime in Maine and New Hampshire. Spectators normally enjoy bright blue skies, which makes watching the rally cars fly by even more fun. Active logging roads present their own set of special challenges to drivers, requiring different driving techniques than at other gravel rallies. With roads wide enough to accommodate massive logging trucks, the temptation to drive flat-out using the whole road is great. But rocks and ruts at the edges of the roads await the unwary drivers who fail to pay anything but the utmost attention to the road at all times--and mistakes can be very, very costly!
