Utah Rally Group is hosting a rally cross in Moab, Utah USA September 7-8, 2013!!

 

 

 All makes, models welcome!  Its the first event to be held in/around Moab (with more to come), so its pretty grass-roots and low key but Come one come all!

 

On-site camping will be offered with full services and lodging available in Moab (about 20 minutes south of the event location).

 Check-in with URG for info and registration.

 

For more information check out Utah Rally Group or visit the FB page at www.facebook.com/groups/utahrallygroup

 :woohoo:

 

Moab attracts a hundreds of thousands of tourists every year, most visiting Arches and Canyonlands National Parks.  The natural and beautiful landscape also attracts a high concentration of outdoor recreation opportunities in stunning natural settings; activities included (but not limited to) the following:

4x4 — Multi-day camping trips in Canyonlands National Park on the White Rim Road, and Extreme 4x4 at Sand Flats Recreation Area (home of the famous Slickrock Bike Trail), among seemingly limitless other areas

Whitewater rafting and kayaking on the Colorado River. The area's most famous sections of the Colorado are West Water Canyon which is upstream from Moab and Cataract Canyon in Canyonlands National Park which is downstream.

Canoe trips on the Green River

Mountain biking — Hundreds of miles of trails easily accessible trails

Road biking — The annual Skinny Tire Festival is held in Moab, including a century ride

Rock climbing — A true international destination for climbers

BASE jumping — Legal in many areas near Moab

Hiking and backpacking — Canyonlands National Park, Arches National Park, and thousands of square miles of BLM and national forest lands surround Moab.

Slacklining/highlining — World record for long highlines was performed here (a new slackline park has just been installed)

 

 

 

 

 

 

Stay tuned, I'm also working on coordinating a Subaru get together with [semi-]organized drives/trails and info on  things to do, places to see and go.  It may overlap with this RallyX weekend. . .

The rally cross is a 2-day event and anyone (with a street-legal vehicle) is welcome to run one day, either day or both days.  Its fun AND an[other] excuse to come to Moab!!  :-)

So yeah, come on down/over/up for the rally to watch, participate or even just hang in/around Moab for the weekend.  B)

Here are a couple Google Earth images of the location.

Directions from I-70 @ hwy 191:

Head south to Valley City Rd (first major left from hwy 191). It's
about 8 miles south of I-70 and you'll cross over the RR tracks when you
get on Valley City Rd. This is a compacted improved county road (there
is some potash mining exploration going on out there so it's a good road
for the mining traffic). From there you take the first veer to the
right onto a two-track and follow that to the site. URG may stage at
this turn off of Valley City Road.
