2004 RALLY NEW YORK AND OTHER EASTERN STATES RALLY CHAMPIONSHIP EVENTS TO BE BROADCAST ON MAJOR CABLE NETWORK

Knoxville, TN ? The 2004 running of the Rally New York will be filmed by Ireland based On the Limit Sports for broadcast later this year on a major cable network.

On the Limit Sports produces a weekly Irish motorsport magazine program which provides exciting action from all the various Irish rally series. The Irish National Rally Championship forms a major part of its coverage.

Rally New York is Round Three of the Eastern States Rally Championship (ESRC), taking place on April 17, 2004. It is headquartered in Monticello, New York, and will run on the roads of the Catskill Mountains. Included in the event will be two tarmac stages.

?In addition to Rally New York, other selected rounds of the Eastern States Rally Championship will be filmed and broadcast, including Rally West Virginia,? stated NASA Rally Sport and Rally Promotions, LLC, principal John K. Shirley. ?We are excited about the involvement of On the Limit Sports, as their experienced camera crews and editors are well versed in rally sport, and provide a product that is second to none.?

?I wish we could disclose the name of the network, but we have to withhold that pending finalization of our contract with them,? stated Dr. Kendall Russell, ESRC Series Coordinator. ?However, we wanted to get this information out before Rally New York for the competitors.? Dr. Russell continued, ?This television package will prove invaluable to our event competitors, as well as to the Championship, as it provides an avenue for the marketing of both the teams and the series, which is a win-win for all involved.?

Congratulations! Even without a cable channel broadcast the fact that this rally has garnered interest from abroad is a great thing for American rally. Looking at the high number of entries with the IRL notation after the names may have something to do with it but it is good news for our sport nonetheless.

That said, I'm a little curious about the lack of chatter on the site about a rally with well over 50 quality amateur entries. In an area screaming about it's isolation and lack of events I would expect more discussion about the event.

Well, there's no lack of enthusiasm about RNT from this little corner of Maine...maybe the lack of chatter has to do with the length of the "to do" list on the rally car and haul truck before we go race! No complaints, we're just really psyched to go run what looks like a total quality event.

Congrats to RNY organizers and competitors for cutting a high profile. It's gonna be a wild weekend in the wilds of southern NY!

Cheers, see y'all in NY, and be ready to smile for the cameras.....

RE: chatter

Is it safe to say that RSNA is gone and can be replaced by the
Eastern States calendar?

RE: 2004 calendar

I think Wyeth has the dates for RSNA that are still on, memorized.
From the entry for RNY, ESRC is pretty popular out this way.
I vote to add the schedule for ESRC on the left.

put on the schedule on the SS start page

Entries so far this year at each rally in the series make it worthy of listing. And the rallies are actually taking place (instead of just being scheduled). I can't wait for CT.

Still snowing?

Here is what the locals I know would use./ My favorite weather site.

http://www.wunderground.com/cgi-bin/findweather/getForecast?query=12701

I'm not too far from the area, 35 miles or so & this is the site I use several times a day personally (co-driver:)), and it is pretty accurate. The forecast on this site will change long range as whomever puts it together has no problem admitting that weather changes.
