Rally New York - September 22-23

Recommended Posts

Yep, It's that time of year again! What time you may be asking?

 

INTERNATIONAL RALLY NEW YORK

 

September 22-23, 2006 in the southern Catskills in Sullivan County. All gravel stages for this rally, as opposed to the all tarmac event in April. An easy drive from anywhere and well worth it. This will be my 5th RNY, and although I can usually say that I will definately be there for both days, this event may only be a 1 dayer due to "life":rolleyes:

that VW on 3 wheels is soooo cool and I bet the guy in the mitsu PU had a fun ride in that thing. :headbang:

 

Looks very cool. Can you give a town name so I could look into seeing how far it is away from me?

Hey everyone,

 

Put "Mahls Pond Road, Narrowsburg, NY" into your mapquest. This is pretty much the general focal point of the rally (focal point being the intersections of routes 26, 22, and 23 as seen on the mapquest map) Blind pond road, Cochecton Turnpike...these are the roads you want to find while you're researching your trip. It's easy to find your way around once you get there.

 

Anyhow, once you punch that into mapquest, download the spectator guide/maps to try and figure out where you are. They may seem a little cryptic and hard to read, but I guarantee that if you get your car to Mahls Pond Road, you will figure out where the rally action is. If you need more hints, PM me.

 

Here are a few videos. Grainy becuase photobucket reduced them, but it should be enough of a teaser:D Make sure the sound is on.

I'm sorry Jon, I forgot to answer your question about how far it is from me and what it's like!

 

From Kingston, it takes me ~1 hour to get there, but it doesn't seem that far since about 40 minutes of the drive is in the territory I work in on a daily basis. I take 209 South to RT. 17 for this rally usually. I think you could hop on 84 west and cut up north somewhere pretty easily.

 

It does cost $5 to watch the rally, which you pay at the spectator area...the $5 goes to the boy scout reservation they hold the event on. You get a wristband and the $5 is for both days/all spectator areas. The local fire department also sets up a grill for dogs and burgers, soda, water, ect and they don't charge much. As far as the $10 admission charge to see the cars at Monticello Raceway, it's not really worth it IMO. Last year it was $8, I paid, and I did enjoy getting up close and personal with the cars and the drivers. Will I pay again? Probably not...

 

It's a really friendly atmosphere. There can be a lot of down time sometimes, but the rush of exitement for seeing the car for 5, maybe 10 seconds (if they go off) makes the wait worth it every time! People are nice, the Polish and Irish guys chain smoke like you can't believe, and the sensory overload you experience will stay with you for quite some time. You will hear the anti-lag systems in your sleep for the next week...you will smell clutch...brakes...race gas....:headbang::clap::banana:

 

 

And one more video...

Getting all excited and going through my good photos from the last rally...Here's another of the Mighty Max for you Matt, and since you love VW's I threw one in of a rally Sirocco. Other cars that have participated include a early 90's Sentra, a couple of Saabs, Neons, a Geo, Mazda 3, Datsun Z, Celicas, Corollas, and an old BMW. Of course though, the majority of the cars are Subaru or Mitsubishi.
