    Default CRC 2010...

    Now that the High Country Rally Group has made their decision official it is time for us to discuss the future and 2010.

    The plans for the 2010 CRC are to do a rallycross, two tumbleweeds and a stage rally.

    Inlight of the fact that no individual has stepped forward to spearhead a transition of rallying in Route County, we are faced with a decision to make, mainly what stage rally would you like to see in the CRC?

    Currently Idaho and Prescott seem the most reasonable options.

    So what say you, the competitor, what event would you like to see us work on including?

    Never been to either... Anybody have info about what Idaho is going to be like this year? The web site is getting updated so there's nothing there. prescottrally.com has last year's details about that one (I assume it'll be similar this year)

    Hint: read above.

    Idaho is fantastic. Been there every year its been put on. Open sometimes, technical and twisty sometimes too... imagine the note-load of middle cog on a few stages only add trees and more trouble.

    Not to say Prescott is bad... on the contrary its a very fun event as well... Mitch, the crew and I had a good time down there racing on the USRC tour in 2008. Its especially great if you can entice the Irish guys to swing this way, and then take them to a tequila restaurant.

    Even better thing is that Idaho is a hop and a skip for us to get there.

    idaho is sick. watch the max attack videos for some indication of what the roads are like. and if its 3 day like the rumor going about is, it will be epic.

    its also relatively new so there isn't a huge advantage to having gone to it a lot like some other events in the country.

    Despite trying to put together a car for MaxAttack! and hoping to attend Rally Idaho, I'm actually leaning towards Prescott.

    My reason is that we have a number of events in Colorado from May - September already. I realize the CRC won't be counting any hillclimb events, but they're still happening, and its a convienent & inexpensive place to play with our rally cars.

    Prescott would be cool cause my brother lives there so no hotel costs for me.
    Dave has a good point with the calendar part of the story.
    By the way, 100 Acre Wood, Idaho, and Prescott are all around 800 miles from here.
    100 Acre Wood is at end of February and potentially bad roads for drive. RA National event and Regional Championship event already.
    Idaho is mid summer and has by far the flattest and easiest drive albeit boring at times it's so flat. USRC event and some pretty spectacular roads. Potential of being a Max Attack event, which adds exposure and serious competition for the 2WD CRC teams.
    Prescott is the final event of USRC. The drive is probably the worst of all with a few mountain passes, but really cool roads and a casino in town. Even though they do charge you for drinks at that casino.

    I'm a non CRC competitor , but a competitor of both the above mentioned Rallies.

    I voted for Prescott.

    My reasoning is to make Prescott sort of a Mecca of competition! Prescott is the Finale of the USRC with tow funds for East coast winners which will cause this event to get some entrants from as far as new york.

    Seems this would be the most fitting situation! Get a large chunk of fast Colorado guys to come out and battle versus the "Fastest in the nation!" at the USRC Finale! Especially if it becomes your year end event as well as being the usrc year end!

    what the Colorado guys are afraid of mt passes? huh? I'm confused.

    Either way i look forward to mixing it up with some Colorado teams at some point in 2010.

    I'm not afraid of mountain passes. People are a bit afraid of riding with me on them though. I do like the idea of ending the series with a stage rally. I also like the idea of including both events, though then maybe the name should be Rocky Mountain Rally Cup instead of Colorado Rally Cup.
