CAMDEN, MAINE – Mike White and his RallyHo Motorsports team will again take on the roads of northwestern Maine and northern New Hampshire in this weekend’s New England Forest Rally (July 15-16). Joining White in his classic 1984 Saab 900 rally car will be co-driver George Loef of Glenmoore, Pennsylvania. White is hoping for a top result in the two-wheel-drive class, which is part of the Max-Attack! Championship series.

Maine-based small businesses have been eager to help out the RallyHo team in the past, and three more Maine companies have signed on for 2011. The Chimney Works of New Harbor, Portable-Dyno of Portland and 1-800 CALL-NOW of Waldoboro are the team’s newest supporters, joining Yachting Solutions of Rockport and Maine Indoor Karting of Scarborough.

“Without the help of these companies, we don’t rally,” White said. “I’m very fortunate to have local businesses support the team so we can go play in the woods.”

Since last year’s rally, White’s Saab has undergone several upgrades, including a more powerful engine, revised rear suspension, and an uprated gearbox with a limited slip differential that will help get the power to the road.

“The added power, better gearing and grip should help us sett more competitive times.” White said. “The team has really put in a huge effort into further development of the car and it feels great.

The Chimney Works of New Harbor has been repairing and restoring chimney systems for Maine customers since 1980. Owner Breck Holladay is an expert in the installation of the Supaflu chimney liner system, with more than 3,500 installations to his credit.

It is ideal for diagnosis and performance work on rear wheel drive, front wheel drive, race cars, sports utility vehicles, go-karts, light commercial vehicles “under 9900lbs” and motorcycles.
