Anyone else glad it got cancelled a couple months ago? It was supposed to go on this weekend. Latest report from the Rangley Lake Region is they've gotten 36" of snow, with a bunch more to come.

Deep fresh snow rallies are the funnest, except for having to tow there in them and the organizer having to pay to have the roads plowed.
Driver skill and smoothness is key, not how much power the car has. Deep snow banks lining the road to cushion or prevent most off road excursions.

And we all have new snow tires that we couldn't use at Tall Pines!

This is the one John Buffum was always concerned about happening which I understand is why he quit doing Maine in the winter. Too great a chance of too may people getting stranded for several days x(

Dirtless???

Try Sylvan Place near East 121st St, between 3rd and Lex. A good 60ft of dirt.

There's another dirt road somewhere near Reade St. downtown(!), but I can't seem to find the name of it. I'll have another look today.

Yes, it's too bad we missed the awesome opportunity to play with rally cars in deep new pow-pow.

One minor point...rally was scheduled for Saturday, and the snow didn't start falling heavily until Sat nite. Heck, all the workers would have been out of the woods by then...and most of the wrecked cars, even!

MFW 03 would have been another one of those notorious "winter roads, summer ditches" events, unless it was held on Sunday, in which case the tales would have been told and retold for many years! (and/or the rally cars and workers woulda been buried in the Maine Woods until next May)

So, too bad Lancia 037...gotta keep those new race snows on hand for a while longer. Like Perce Neige....

cheers, Dave G
