Default What is the future of Preformance Rallying in the NW

I heard today that PRG (Pacific Rally Group) has all but disbanded. These are the people who put on DooWop, Olympus, and I believe Wild West. Makes me wonder what will happen to all the rally teams just getting started.

I'm not sure there's much to be worried about.
The same people are putting on the same rallies with the same awesome volunteers.

Our biggest concern is being able to still get roads and be able to put these events on.

So without a group or organization, does this mean that one person sholders the liability of the event? I certainly wouldn't want to be that person. I'm sure the volunteers (me included) will always be there, but it takes a group/organized effort to put on a stage rally, if there is no organization behind that effort, too many loose strings remain untied.

silly kids and their silly drifting.


whats going to happen is the people that still want to rally are going to find a way. It might just mean we have to drive a little further. Also, I know just in Bend alone we have 5+ teams that are either racing NASA or RA. My cars being built, 401 rally is racing RA, the silver wrx that g-fab just finished has been racing, all the allwheelsdriven guys, theres another STi and 2.5 that are both racing.

If PRG did/does go bunk, I would be surprised if there weren't more than a few willing souls ready to form a new organizing body to take their place.
