RALLY NEW YORK USA A GO FOR NOVEMBER 6, 2004

Monticello, NY ? Rally New York USA, the fall running of the Rally New York, is confirmed for Saturday, November 6, 2004. The fall event, while based in Monticello, will be running on entirely new roads, and will consist of approximately 60 miles of gravel only stages.

Registration will take place Thursday, November 4, and recce on Friday, November 5, 2004. The event replaces Rally West Virginia as the year-end event for the Eastern States Rally Championship, and will host the year-end awards party as well.

More information can be found at www.rallynewyork.com.

SNOWSHOE HILLCLIMB OPEN TO RALLY CLASSES

Snowshoe, WV ? The NASA sanctioned Snowshoe Hillclimb, confirmed for Labor Day Weekend, September 4-5, 2004 at the Snowshoe Mountain Resort, will run NASA Rally Sport classes in addition to the other traditional hillclimb classes.

The hillclimb is a super-steep two mile ascent that features ten turns ranging from long, sweeping high speed turns to some of the tightest hairpins anywhere. Estimated runs will be between 9 and 12 over two days, all for the bargain price of $139.00. Rumor has it that a significant prize fund has been established by its organizers.

Rally (cumulative) timing is being considered for the rally classes. While the event does not pay points for the Eastern States Rally Championship, all ralliers are encouraged to come get a taste of the tarmac.

POINTS BATTLES COMING INTO MAINE FOREST

Rumford, ME ? The Maine Forest entry list is conspicuous in its absence of Danny O?Brien, current Eastern States Rally Championship points leader at 69 points. This leaves him vulnerable to a number of challengers, including Seamus Burke and co-driver Charlie Bradley at 64 points, Stock Class wonders Jeff Field and co-driver Michael Hordijk at 59 points, and Prototype Two class dominator Randy Zimmer and co-driver Russell Strate at 45 points.

In the class championships, Burke and Bradley at 64 points have a slim one-point lead over upstart Scott Gardner in Prototype One. John Meegan follows at 45 points. In Prototype Two, Randy Zimmer is expected to increase his points lead due to nearest rival Anders Green trading seats to co-pilot for Robert Wall. In Group N, Shane Mitchell is expected to overtake Cyril Kearney, who will not be competing, but expect a fight at Rally New York USA, as the class could go to either one.

Danny O?Brien?s substantial lead in Super Stock will be whittled down with a good result from Robert Wall, and depending on the results in New York, Wall could be a spoiler for the year-end award. In any event, expect a good battle for second position between Wall, John O?Reilly and co-driver Noel Gallagher, and Eric Langbein and co-driver Jeremy Wimpey. In stock class, Jeff Field and co-driver Michael Hordijk are expected to add another first place, and 32 points, to their already impressive 128 points in class.

Modified One belongs to perennials Mark and Duffy Bowers with the absence of Kent Davis and Kevin Hoff from the entry list at Maine. In Modified Two Dan Brosnan could be poised to take the lead, but Travis Washay and Wyatt Knox will challenge.
