From Paul Eklund:
Attached is the tentative Rally School Flyer, brought to you by Primitive
Performance Driving and Oregon Rally Group. The school is scheduled for March
18-20 (Fri-Sun) with ground school Friday late afternoon (5pm?) into the evening
(10pm), driving exercises in a RallyCross setting on Saturday and a full
RallyCross competition on Sunday. Along the way we will discuss TSD rally, stage
rally, driving techniques and a host of other rally issues. This is directed
to the beginner, but experienced rallyists will learn and gain valuable
practice as well. Cost is $135 per person for early sign up (before March 1st) and
it is $150 after that.

Groundschool location not yet finalized, but Sat/Sun will be out at
Washington County Fairgrounds in Hillsboro, OR (~15 miles west of Portland). The field
is LARGE, flat and grassy (which will turn to muddy).

Details to be finalized. Please spread the word to interested parties and
members of your car clubs. This program will give driving skills to
autocrossers, road racers, and rallyists and open up the world of rallying to all
participants. We plan to have some break-out sessions directed towards navigators
(course notes, timing basics, calculating, controlling your driver) and some for
drivers (thinking ahead, safety, thinking ahead, planining your event,
thinking ahead). Street cars are fine (nothing lowered is recommended)--they will
get muddy. 2 people can share a car, but it will reduce total seat time on
Saturday a little bit.

I will also be contacting some of you about helping instruct at the school
(depending upon expected attendance). Please email me if you have solid
experience and really want to instruct driving or navigating. You will be paid for
your efforts.

Sponsors will be sought for the event. A small sponsorship will get logo
onto front of coursebook, with a 1 page advertisement inside and a chance to give
a short (>5 minute) talk during the school and/or a display of wares.
Contact me at Pauleklund@aol.com or Scott Kovalik at dkov@pacifier.com for more info
on this opportunity. We currently expect about 20-35 students and about 100+
entrants at the RallyCross.

Sorry, I can't attach the flyer since it's 83K (over the 50K limit). Email me and I'll forward the flyer.

Man I'd love to attend. It'd be awesome if it was around the time of WCSS7.
I'm trying to plan out a rally race from Fairbanks to circle via the historical trail for next fall..

Yea, I guess it would. But a three day rallycross added to a 3 day WCSS? I'm starting to run out of vacation days! This school is being done by Primitive Enterprises in conjunction with ORG; it would certainly be interesting to join forces with the Subaru groups.

If I can get one of the brats done my then, maybe I could do it, but at this point I am really deep financially into my Brats. I just need a working clutch! (see retrofit and off road forums)Sounds fun though... if I can get 3 days off.

We're not gonna try to mix the WCSS with Rally X this year. Sorry. Cool idea though.

I'd love to do this, but I have a feeling that is about the time my building permit will be approved and I'll be deeply involved in building my garage. Hope they do it again next years.

If you like I'll call the Town Hall and tell them your garage is too large for your lot. That should delay things enough to put you into April.:lol: Just trying to help the "faint of heart" make a decision.
