PostHeaderIcon The 2011 Idaho Rally approaches. Are you ready?

From the desk of Dick Rochrohr, Director of the Idaho Rally Group:

Next up in the 2011 CRS Rally calendar is the Idaho Rally scheduled to take place in Boise County, Idaho on June 18th and 19th. The rally will be held on Saturday and Sunday with optional Recce Friday. In addition to being a CRS points event, Idaho is the first event in the west for the United States Rally Championship (USRC).

Saturday will be a coefficient 3 event with approximately 67 stage miles and 80 transit miles. Sunday will be a coefficient 2 event with approximately 44 stage miles and 65 transit miles. The Idaho Rally is unique in that it welcomes all sorts of vehicles; ATV, UTV, and Motorcycles will be allowed to trailer the 25 miles from the host hotel in Boise to the stages each day.  The organizers have set up a very compact rally with service in the town of Placerville both days. The stages will be run no more than twice each direction and will be on county maintained roads with a decomposed granite service with only light gravel. The roads should be smooth with good traction, speed averages historically are between 40-54 mph for the cars. Dick Rochrohr, the Director of the Idaho Rally Groups states, "We are trying hard to put on an affordable Rally laid out how we would like a rally to be laid out. The club has members with over 40 years of racing and promoting experience. We hope you come and enjoy the rally."

The 2011 Idaho Rally is promoted by the Idaho Rally Group and sanctioned by NASA Rallysport. The rally will be awarding CRS, PNWR, and out of region Rally America (RA) points and will accept both NASA and RA completion licenses.

Don't miss out on what guarantees to be another historical Idaho Rally!


PostHeaderIcon Two Wheel Drive Dominates Podium at High Desert Trails Rally

Los Angeles – The High Desert Trails Rally marked the second event of the California Rally Series (CRS) Championship calendar took place this past Saturday April 9th. The rally moved to new roads outside of Ridgecrest, CA which were hard packed dirt with short sections of tarmac.

The fast desert roads seemed to be custom made for Bill Holmes and Sean Gallagher in their Ford F-150. The team won every stage of the event on their way to the overall and CRS-5 class win. Runners up in CRS-5 were Jack Szanto and Jack Penley in their Dodge Neon SRT-4, who traded stage times with Brian Hamblin and Ray Hocker in their turbocharged Volvo 240. However, a high speed spin and stall late in the rally caused the Volvo team to fall down the leader board.

The competition amongst the top teams in the CRS-2 class can only be described as epic. Three extremely talented drivers were within seconds of each other throughout the event, and the leader board seemed to change with every stage. At the end of the day, Michel Hoche-Mong and Marie Boyd secured the top spot in their VW Golf (and second place overall), ahead of George Doganis and Tom Smith in a Honda Civic (who finished third overall). 2010 rookies of the year Gaylord Van Brocklin and Steve Secviar were on maximum attack from start to finish (and then some). They crossed the flying finish of the last stage fast enough to take first place, but perhaps too fast to negotiate the next corner. Immediately after the finish they lost control of their VW Golf going over a crest and went off in spectacular fashion, cartwheeling down the hill in full view of the finish control workers. The team emerged unscathed, but would end up officially scored as a “Did Not Finish” as they were unable to complete the final transit. Sliding into third place in CRS-2 were Eddie Fiorelli and Brent Ellzey in the rally debut of their VW Golf.

Hakan Okcuoglu took first place in Open 4WD (and fourth place overall) in his Mitsubishi Eclipse. Mitsubishi seemed to be the manufacturer of choice in this class, with Vartan Samuelian and Lawrence Babahekian scoring second place points in a Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution.

CRS-GT, the production-based four wheel drive class, was won by Paul Willemsen and Travis Bos in their Subaru Impreza WRX. The event marked Paul’s return to rally after a several year hiatus. He proved he did not lose much speed during the break as he finished over two minutes ahead of 2010 CRS-GT champions Kevin Welker and Nolan Sambrano in their Subaru Impreza.

Performance-Stock was also won by a driver coming off a multi-year hiatus. Tony Chavez and Raquel Salas drove their VW Golf to a P-Stock victory in a close battle with John Black and Lori Stone in their Ford Ranger. The second place finish is enough for Black/Stone to maintain their lead in the championship thanks to a strong finish at Desert Storm.

The High Desert Trails Rally was first run in 1973 on roads to the southeast and west of Ridgecrest, CA. After running for the past two years at a motorsports facility on the edge of town, the rally moved to some never before run roads for 2011.

PostHeaderIcon Full Field of Competitors for High Desert Trails 2011!

Press Release Written By Kris and Christine Marciniak

The High Desert Trails Rally will be in less then two weeks on Saturday, April 9th, 2011 based in Ridgecrest, California. California Rally Series competitors asked what they wanted and HDT answered this year with great new roads, a single day event, and organizer supplied stage notes. The big twist this year is there will be no familiarization lap or reconnaissance, so every driver will be seeing these roads at speed for the first time. A blind rally is a true test of team ability.



Teams immediately stepped up to that challenge by taking the twenty reserved car spots, and when RallyMoto entries failed to appear, the organizers moved swiftly to reallocate those spots, maxing the event at thirty cars. Notable entries for this years rally include: Top drivers, Doug Chernis and George Plsek, who will each be piloting AWD turbo monsters, but Bill Holmes will also be pushing for the overall win in his powerful RWD Ford F-150 - having won this event in the past. In CRS-2, last years winner, Gaylord Van Brocklin, (pictured) will be defending against the very consistent George Doganis. Don’t be surprised to see any of these drivers on the podium. will once again be helping us with gear for the event and have offered their national contingency to our regional event! What does this mean for our competitors? Run a sticker set and be eligible for a $250 gift certificate raffle in 2WD and 4WD. That’s two $250 gift certificates (1 raffle for 4wd, 1 raffle for 2wd) as contingency winnings for cars displaying decals on both front fenders.

The Prescott Rally is offering a raffle prize for a ½ priced entry to the 2011 Prescott Rally! The ½ price will be calculated when the Prescott Rally entry is paid and the winner must be present at the High Desert Trails awards to win. Prize will be drawn from drivers who started the 2011 High Desert Trails Rally.

The route will take competitors up twisty switchbacks and over ridgelines of hard-packed, wide, dirt roads. This is followed by a fast flowing route that rises up out of a valley and descends sharply onto a short section of tarmac. Over sixty miles of stages with a one hour service stop should make a great day of rallying!

Los Angeles - The California Rally Series (CRS) Championship season starts this weekend (March 3-6) in Blythe, CA with the Desert Storm Rally, presented by Lucas Oil Products, Inc. The event features three days of competition, including a special free event on Thursday evening. Competitors will see a variety of fast, flowing roads amidst the scenic desert landscape along the Colorado River. Saturday also features two super special stages, including a night stage on the oval at the Lucas Oil Speedway.

Thirteen teams are scheduled to compete in this classic event that is traditionally one of the most exciting on the calendar. Early favorites for the overall victory are last year’s winners Lauchlin O’Sullivan and Scott Putnam in a Subaru WRX-STI. The team is fresh off a second place in class finish at the 100 Acre Wood rally this past weekend, where they charged up the leader board at the last minute in dramatic fashion. Looking to bring the fight to O’Sullivan / Putnam will be Jon Burke and Tom Morningstar, also competing in a Subaru WRX. Jon showed impressive pace here last year where he surprised O’Sullivan with some overall stage wins. He comes into this event hungry for his first win after upgrading his transmission.

CRS-2 is shaping up to be the category to watch with nearly half the field competing in this class for small displacement, two wheel drive vehicles. Teams to watch include the always exciting Gaylord Van Brocklin and Steve Secviar in a VW Golf GTI, who made their CRS debut here last year. Look for them to trade stage times with fellow VW rallyists Alex Helton and Patrick Lobban. Other teams in contention for the CRS-2 top honors include Michael Bond and Mike Ingoldby in a Honda Civic, and CRS mainstay Chuck Wilson in his Ford Escort.

The Desert Storm Rally is known as the “Regional Rally with National Flair.” Cars start competition at 5:00pm on Thursday, and then continue Saturday and Sunday morning. For more information on the Desert Storm Rally, including spectator information, visit and follow @crspress on twitter.
