We are up to 55 entries. The list will be update today or tomorrow on the web-site. There are some interesting entries and a very good/deep field in all classes.

Manufacturers? We don't need no stinkin' manufacturers!

In all seriousness, we will miss the 'show' that comes with the manufacturers. We are looking forward to the show evolving into better support for each event, and better use of the events as publicity tool for the manufacturers who can take the most exciting form of motorsport in the world and leverage it to sell their products.

Sno*Drift will have 6 spectator areas, many you have been to before, and a few new ones. Please plan on watching from these well published locations, as rallymaster I will have no problem cancelling stages if the crowds are not controlled. Competitors talk to your friends, from experience we know it is more likely to be someone in the Rally Community that might try and find their way to an inappropriate spot on the course. Competitors: we want to run every stage, help us, the montra is: Insurance only allows spectating from designated areas. (thanks!)

Friday's Downtown Lewiston Service area will again be used -- paved, plowed with resturants and other facilities right there for your convenience. Support the local shops! Trailers can be parked down the side roads outside of the service area (don't block driveways).

Saturday's Service area will be at the NEW Atlanta High School. Paved, Plowed and with restrooms and food for sale (support the senior class!), it should be a great convenience to the all participants. Trailers should be able to be parked across the main road (to the south) in the plowed parking area of the baseball field or at the Montmnorency County Road Comission Parking lot.

We still need workers!
Planning to attend? Please help us out by signing up to Marshal a corner or work a start control. Our goal is to have several marshals at every corner which will allow you to take turns marshaling and spectating. The more people who sign up, the more flexibility there is with worker locations, Bring your Friends!!

Oh and as of Today: SNOW CONDITIONS ARE GREAT!

See ya in the Sno,
Mike

So Curtis Kitchen's Media Announcement that "The 2004 SCCA ProRally Championship is primed and ready to go with almost 60 entries" is an exaggeration combining the Club to the Pro entries.

Sure would be nice if the website designated which event the teams were entering, not just who will be there.

And I'll add that our web folks ( a new crew this year) and our registrar are doing a fantastic job!!!

All will be clear when you attend the event, sign up to work and help us sort through the these minor issues, be a part of one of the best organizing teams in the Country!

Sno*Drift: we are all you can be!




Now if we can only get Sprongls to attend and maybe a few other top flight Canadians...

If you want to attract them, a suggestion is to offer them the entry fee at par for Canadian dollars. MaineForest offers this and it seems to help.
Canadians already have the additional expense of having to join SCCA, an expense that is not forced upon US competitors wishing to compete in Canada.

It would be nice if the events entered (Club/Pro) were identified on the entry list (e.g. we would like to know how many of the other P car we are actually competing against...).

>Now if we can only get Sprongls to attend and maybe a few

Probably the fact that Perce Neiges runs the week after Sno*Drift would discourage them from entering (if they are aiming for the Canadian championship) as they would want to avoid the possibility of damaging the car.

Also, while the exchange rate is getting better, it is still much more expensive to run Sno*Drift (compared to PN).

Of course, I'm going to both (in the cheap seat...)

Mike:

It is unfortunate that the only two winter rallies in the SCCA and Canadian Championships are on consecutive weekends. Perhaps, next year, the schedule makers can have a look at separating the two events.

If we continue to have only one winter rally in Canada, I would think you will be able to attract several Canadian teams, as long as they have time to get ready/repair damage for the Canadian event.

However, you will have at least one leading Canadian Championship team this year. Maybe more, next year.

Two entries that will be very interesting to see:

-Travis Pastrana: Probably a win-or-wad driving stlye, and SnoDrift demands smooooth, but he has Christian to try to mellow him out.
-Ramanna: Now in GN, will all the seat time and time spent with Lovel/Hagstrom (while driving the factory car) make him the dominat US GN driver, or will he not stand out in this class where the equipment level is more even.

Should be fun!

Can't see those picks, but if there studded well, oh well...


If we don't plow, you'll need real snow tires (vs. ice tires), but then our Zamboni sponsors would be upset if we didn't plow...
