Welcome to the Magnum Opus Rally....
We are very excited to bring back an historic event to Michigan after many years of absence - Magnum Opus. First run in Marquette, then moved to Munising, and now headquartered in Newberry, the new Magnum Opus will run on April 21, 2012. Encompassing 12 stages, day & night, and over 50 stage miles, the new event will be ‘route book only, no recce’. Nothing fancy, just a good old school, single day rally in da U.P., eh?
The event will feature something very special: a re-run of one of the stages from the infamous 1974 World Rally Championship Press On Regardless! Competitors will trace the route of such legends as Sandro Munari in the Lancia Stratos and Marku Alen in the Fiat 124 Abarth! The other stages are all new and never previously rallied.
The website has been updated with a forum and we encourage everyone to bookmark it as we are releasing details almost daily regarding lodging and other news.
The community of Newberry hopes you will join us in Michigan’s Eastern Upper Peninsula for this historic rally and are looking forward to providing you with some fantastic roads and hospitality. There will be a dinner and awards banquet for workers and competitors immediately following the conclusion of the rally. Details are on the forum.
We are looking forward to providing competitors, workers, and spectators with a fun, fast event.
Thank you !
