America?s FIA-listed International Rally Sanctioned by USAC

Laughlin, Nevada --- American Rally Sport Group, Inc., announces the Opening of Entry for the Ramada Express International Rally 2002, December 11-15. This three-day endurance motor sport rally event celebrates its fifth year in 2002 headquartered at the Ramada Express Hotel-Casino in Laughlin, Nevada. Competition centers over forests and mountain roads within the western rim of Arizona?s majestic Grand Canyon in the Land of the Hualapai Indian Nation. Sunday?s SuperStagefl dual-course competition brings up-close-and-personal rally action to the public in the Laughlin Special Events arena.

2002 event sanctioning and FIA-calendar listing is through United States Automobile Club, (USAC), respected for its long motor sport history, including the Pike?s Peak Hill Climb and the USGP Formula 1 race.

In direct response to the tremendous interest in America?s International rallies, American Rally Sport Group?s organizing team developed tiered entry packages.

"ARSG?s improved 2002 event packages include options that more closely align with the needs of rally teams. Heavily sponsored competitors often arrive with extensive support personnel and vehicles. Coordinating the logistics of hotel rooms, crew reservations, and the best placement of large tractor-trailer rigs in limited space can be difficult. On the other hand, many top rally competitors effectively operate with very small budgets. Our package plan is intended to allow each team to keep dollars in their pockets and avoid costly surprises. One of ARSG?s goals is to have the best American rally, and we feel this is one way to accomplish it," says Lynnette Allison, ARSG?s Press and Information.

The rally amenities options include full rally entry, additional hotel rooms, extended parking spaces with locations having better public access, and additional tickets for rally event team activities. Event registration and details are available at ARSG?s web site www.RallyUSA.com. A written entry form may be requested from: Registrar, American Rally Sport Group, 3650 South Pointe Circle, Suite 205, Laughlin, NV 89029.

The Ramada Express Hotel-Casino International Rally opened in 1998 as America?s first FIA-listed International event in more than a decade, sparking a resurgence of rally interest not seen since the mid-1980?s with America?s World Rally Championship Olympus rallies. American Rally Sport Group, America?s most experienced rally organization, continues as a catalyst for dynamic change, as it brings together America?s best rally teams and skilled national competitors from Canada, New Zealand, Japan and Great Britain in a three-day endurance rally offering a prize fund reaching $25,000.

The Ramada Express International Rally is one of three American events included in the new North American Rally Championship (previously titled Championship of North American Rallies, CNAR), a zone championship currently awaiting final confirmation by the FIA.

ARSG has a multi year with USAC for FIA sanctioning. ARSG also has an agreement with Outdoor Life Network (OLN) for one-hour showings of its rally event.

The Ramada Express International Rally is featured in the Nintendo 64 game, "Top Gear Rally 2" by Kemco and the "Rally Championship Xtreme" for PC?s, released in Europe by Warthog Productions of Great Britain in 2001. It?s newest game, for the Playstation2 and X-Box, is scheduled for American distribution this fall.

American Rally Sport Group, Inc. organizes the Ramada Express Hotel-Casino International Rally December 11-15, 2002, the Magellan presents JAOS Adventure Rally December 13-15, 2002 ?The Ultimate Road Trip?, and the Grand Canyon International Marathon, a runners? event with its inaugural opening October 20, 2002.
American Rally Sport Group is currently developing other motor sport events within the United States.
