2C Returns with 3 events! The 2015 NASA Rally Sport 2WD Challenge
May 21, 2015 06:02PM
FOR IMMEDIATE ANARCHY
Long Beach, CA (May, 21st 2015)

Some say: "It's only after you finish a rally without lifting off the throttle that you'll need a faster car." Rallying to this level of commitment takes dedication, practice, and great competition. For some, 2WD is a stepping stone. For others, it is the only class that matters.

NASA Rally Sport is excited to bring back the Two Wheel Drive Challenge presented by Team O'Neil Rally School and Streetwise Motorsports. The 2015 2C will consist of three events starting with Idaho Rally International this June 13-14. We hope to turn up the volume on the rivalry between the Southwest and Northwest drivers that typically meet in Idaho for some great 2WD competition. Get signed up at: http://idahorally.org/

Knowing that the Gorman Rally was adding miles of new twisty forest stages made it's inclusion as a 2C event an easy choice. Look for a 2WD car to win this event outright on August 22nd in Southern California. Their new site is: http://www.gormanrally.com/

Finally, the event that was a proving ground for 2C makes it's return on October 2-3. The Prescott Rally had 2WD make up 2nd and 3rd of it's overall podium last year and will once again make a fantastic season final! Details: http://www.prescottrally.com/

We've increased the overall cash purse to $6,000+. The twist this year is the payout is based on participation. Rallies with less than 14 2WD competitors will see a top prize of $250. Kick that up to 15-24 and a $500 top prize will be offered. Hit the 25 car mark and we'll make it $1000. For example Idaho had 27 2WD cars take to the stages last year. If that happens again, you will see a 1st - $1000, 2nd - $600, 3rd - $300, 4th - $100, 5th - $60. All three events will have payouts to 5th, and the full breakdown will be on our site. Get ready for some awesome 2WD battles! http://www.nasarallysport.com/main/2WD_Challenge

Both of our presenting sponsors are serious about 2WD as a starting point for rally. Team O'Neil in Dalton, NH offers classes in Ford Fiesta school cars and their curriculum focuses on starting with the skills and techniques of 2WD. Streetwise Motorsports in Rancho Santa Margarita, CA builds and supports 2WD rally cars and is ready to help you get started in 2C with their many years of technical experience.

Our mission is to continue growing the grassroots excitement of the sport and encourage the building of more affordable rally cars and setting the goal of winning individual events. We want to showcase grassroots talent with social platforms, driver interviews, video, and buzz around the battles that are often overlooked. Let's show the next generation of rallyists how much fun we can have driving as fast as possible on closed dirt roads! Join us!

And by "nothing" I know you're talking about the reduced entry prices we have for 2WD cars at some of the East Coast events that the West Coast doesn't have. winking smiley

We come up with ideas, we try them out, we try some here, some here, some here... don't sweat it though, NRS loves 2WD all over the whole country. smiling smiley

Grassroots rally. It's what I think about.

Half-price entry for 2WD?

If you have an open diff, would it be be 3/4 off?

You have to lose the wheels entirely to qualify for a full (number of wheels) / (4 wheels on a car) ratio discount. You can't just not supply power to them. winking smiley

Can do.


Wait, you have to lose them before the event?

How about a sliding scale based on when exactly you lose them?

Here's the Idaho Coverage:


2C Idaho Rally Kickoff!

If you've been involved in rally and off road motorsports, a couple big names pop out on the 2WD entry list. Ramana Lagemann has over 50 rallies to his career, and once drove a factory ride for Subaru USA. Lagemann will be looking to have fun at his first Idaho Rally, but he will also be driving for a win. Campaigning a well prepped BMW e36 M3, he could surprise the large AWD field.

Class winner at the 2014 Baja 1000, Ryan Millen has set his sights on rally, and is looking to get a solid start with his new Toyota RAV4. This will be the first event for his team, this car, and we'll find out quickly if he can get it all dialed in for an attack on 2C.

Hot off his 2015 High Desert Trails win, Markus Saarinen has been a force in 2WD. With lots of Northwest driving experience, this Southwest competitor will be setting fast times on the Idaho stages. Driving a FWD naturally aspirated Mini Cooper to it's absolute limit is what 2C loves!

A local favorite, Dave Clark will be campaigning his Merkur XR4Ti and will definitely be looking for a podium finish in class! We cannot guarantee that any pink flamingos won't be harmed on stage when Dave's around, but we can guarantee a rear wheel drive crowd favorite when Dave gets to the limit in the spectator areas.

The 2C story may be down in the middle of the pack with a wild selection of vehicles going for the top spots and looking to take home some cash. Larry Clark will be in his 1985 Toyota Celica, John Hill in a 1967 Ford Cortina, Erik Christiansen in an underrepresented this year VW Golf, Elijah Fillman-Sullivan driving a BMW 325is, Bruce Tabor in the family owned Nissan Sentra SE-R, Jason Bailey will have a 2014 Scion FRS, Christopher Conrad will be back out with his 1967 Volvo 122, Derek Knight will be in a Volvo 242, and Henry Gillow-Wiles will be campaigning his Honda Civic.

Some new drivers will be taking to the stages, and we love to see them in 2WD! James Rimmer will be in his Subaru BRZ, Eric LaVance will be driving his well prepped Camaro for the first time, Ryan McLaughlin will be out in an Acura Integra, and a last minute entry from John Coyne in a Toyota Corolla.

With over 15 2WD starters, the 2C payout will be: 1st $500 - 2nd $300 - 3rd $150 - 4th $50 - 5th $30. The payout goes up as more drivers battle! And there's nothing better than the sweet sweet taste of your favorite brew paid for with rally winnings.
