The Olympus Rally, round three of the Rally America National Championship, will move from its traditional location near Olympia, Wash., 300 miles east to Pomeroy, Wash., for 2008.

“When we learned that the roads in the Olympia region were unavailable for our use this year, we were obviously disappointed,” said Steve McQuaid, chairman of the Olympus Rally. “However, instead of cancelling the rally, we chose to move it to Pomeroy, where we held a very successful event last year.”

In September 2007, Pomeroy played host to the Wild West Rally, the penultimate round of the Rally America Northwest Regional Championship. Utilizing many of the same stages, the Olympus Rally will feature fast, smooth roads that cross wheat and barley fields before dropping into gullies that drain into the Snake River.
