What are the tentative dates for some US rallies in 2004? I'm sure I'm not the only who wants to know!

Let the speculation commence:

What I heard at Colorado was that there would three Western
nationals (Oregon, Rim, and Colorado), with the usual smattering
of Eastern events to round out the Calender (STPR, Maine, Ojibwe,
and LSPR) . . .

I'd also like to know the dates of all these (and any other ? )
events.


The preceding information is totally based on speculation
and rumors, and is therefore probably not based on any facts.

I think its probably fairly safe to say that Ojibwe will again be run on the weekend prior to Labor Day. This is of course not set in stone by any means but it is the "traditional" date after flirting with a week earlier in 2001 and 2002.

No Wild West?

Doesn't this schedule unfairly favor the eastcoast teams?

Only if you consider Minnesota and Michigan east coast states...

To look at it another way, there would be three rallies east of the Mississippi, three west of the Mississippi, and two NORTH of the Mississippi.

Hell, we consider Texas to be an eastern state!

Or, from a towing perspective, there would be two west of the Rockies, two on top of the Rockies, and FIVE east of the Rockies. Bridges make it easy to get across rivers.

Planes, trains and rallycars

Minnesota and Michigan are no way eastern states.

So why doesn't someone in the US approach a train freight company with a sponsorship proposal to have cars and service vehicles transported coast to coast at some point in the season, then fly yourself by airline to the event. Sure works well in Canada.

Sure increases the cost of rally for a west coast team when you look at the travel to event ratio.

From Seattle area OFR and Colorado are not much different in tow time, Both take a couple of long days one way.
