American Rally Sport just got better. Rallydrift Inc. is proud to announce that this summer, the Idaho Rally is becoming one of the longest stage rallies in North America with over 150 stage miles of world class dirt roads, while building a solid event infrastructure with a firm focus on the future.

New stage roads and a change of headquarters are just two of several event improvements on tap for July 2010. The headquarters will move from Mountain Home, which hosted the Rally in 2008 and 2009, to Boise, Idaho where the centrally located Idaho State Fairgrounds will serve both as the main service area and provide a spectator-friendly venue for a new super special stage.

On July 16-17, 2010 driver and co-driver teams in 40 cars will be competing for Idaho’s Rally Crown. The two competitive days will be jam packed and should deliver an unforgettable experience. The Boise Convention and Visitors Bureau will help to host Stage Control Crews and other key players in the event structure to further help to lift the overall quality of the rally.

Idaho’s roads are considered to be among the best in North America. The twisty and smooth surfaces require a team’s full attention throughout the whole race and the roads contribute heavily to previous years Idaho Rally’s earning a great reputation and it being widely considered as a “must attend” event among those in the Rally Community.

Idaho Rally competitors will be vying for points in the United States Rally Championship, the California Rally Series Championship, and the Pacific NorthWest Rally Championship.

The Idaho Rally and the Idaho State Government are undertaking several bold steps with goals of advancing to the highest level of rally sport for 2012/13.

Organization changes will include Pete Soper being announced as the new Sporting Director. Pete is a strong supporter of Rally Events up and down the west coast, familiar with both U.S. and international rally regulations and will set new standards in the organization.

Jens Schkade will remain Rally Director with his focus centered towards success with the commercial side of the event.
