Default Where in the NW would you like to see a rally race at?

I was driving up to Mt. Constitution today and I thought to myself, "Damn, this road would make one awesome rally stage."
The wrc races in some really spectacular places and so does rally america, but come on, who wouldn't want to see a race on Orcas Island? (not counting the people who live there... maybe).

Ugh, people who rip up Chuckanut deserve the long trip to the bottom. That's not a road to mess around on.

The best two local roads are Chuckanut and Mt. Baker highway past Glacier. Of course, we can discount them both because they'd be crazy-dangerous for a rally stage.

There are some excellent logging roads in Glacier that would work beautifully.

When I went to OTR in 2008, and I was driving to PIR from my girlfriend's place in Hillsboro, I couldn't help thinking that Germantown and Skyline should've been made into tarmac stages. I'm pretty sure I saw Ken Block (in a non-rally prepped Subie) crossing the St Johns bridge after a run up there

*edit: we could probably just say that any road you would want to go on during a cruise/drive/whatever that you're not allowed to have (no, that's not a complaint ) is a road that would be a hoot to close off and run as a special stage.

Brooklyn is an awesome stage. I really need to drive that road myself.

They do a small tarmac stage up here sometimes. Blue Slough I believe it's called.

I would like to see more rally activity in Eastern WA. There are tons of great gravel/tarmac roads back there. A great tarmac stage right outside of Spokane would be Vally Chapel Rd. Long stretch of sweepers, twisties, elevation changes, and even a couple of jumps. If you're ever in Spokane, check that road out!

Great ideas for stage roads everyone! My 2 cents: get involved with an organizing group if you want to see rally in your area. For example, the Olympus organizers are trying hard to get the roads in the Olympia area, but the more people we have to network and 'rally' for our favorite roads, the better.
Pacific Rally Group and Oregon Rally Group are great resources if you want to get involved.
