North West rally scene
December 22, 2015 08:03AM
my dad lives in northern ID and i may be relocating near him in the next year. my question is what is the rally scene like up that way?
i see two events on the NASA schedule and two on the RA list what else is there? I count hill climbs as rally sprints.



I would rather drive a slow car fast as a fast car slow!

We're moving to SW Idaho next summer as well. There's the rallies you'd mentioned plus there are a ton of hillclimbs in the PNW.
Check out http://www.nhahillclimb.org for the schedule. Also check out the CARS event schedule too for rallies north of the border. Quite a bit going on in that part of the country

plus the Mt Hood Rally and Wild West Rally

and if you count hillclimbs... (though these are mostly put on by autocrossers and they are all tarmac)

http://www.nhahillclimb.org/

The new 2016 schedule is as follows:

Cascade Lakes Hillclimb | June 11-12 | Ashland, OR
Hoopa Hillclimb | June 4-5 | California Coast Range
Freezeout Hillclimb | June 25-26 | Emmett, ID
Larison Rock Hillclimb | July 2-3 | Oakridge, OR
Bible Creek Hillclimb | Aug 13-14 | Oregon Coast Range
Bogus Basin Hillclimb | September 3-4 | Boise, ID
Mary Hill Hillclimb | September 17-18 | Goldendale, WA


why the top two aren't in order by date I've no idea
