    Exclamation Magnum Opus April , 21st 2012 Upper Peninsula of Michigan !

    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 !

    In my opinion, rallying could stand a bit less posturing and circus and a bit more backbone....Phil Barnes, aging co-driver

    Miles/days?

    I'm guessing if you're making if affordable, you're probably looking at something like a dual 1 coeff rally with tulips? But at a 6 hour tow, it's pretty awesome for me.

    Tow Friday night, one (or two?!?) pass in morning (I would like to see it if possible), run in afternoon, awards in evening, drive home Sunday.

    I'd like to see a one pass where you can annotate the route book. But a two pass and notes creation would be awesome, since it is allowed in the RA rules:
    E. Rallies that let competitors create new pace notes (as opposed to annotating the stage notes or route books) must offer pace notes training 46
    and should offer two-pass reconnaissance.
