Have fun at winter NY. We did the gravel rally last fall as safety. Expect big ruts, and if it's icy you're going to have fun trying to keep it between the trees. Also on Mortimer shiff reverse beware the R4 c c about mid way through. If you miss that R4 you're going to have an imprint of a boulder in your drivers door. Just ask the broken guys
Drive safe, and see you for the tarmac rally if you go to that.
