Default Oregon Trail Rally, April 22-24, Hillsboro, OR

Who's going?

Looks like one of the best fields in recent memory. The GrN deck is stacked, for sure. I'm excited to see how things shake out.

Here's the current GrN field: Pat Richard, Stig Blomqvist (yes, that Stig Blomqvist), Wyeth Gubelmann, Bill Bacon, Otis Dimiters, Ken Block, Travis Pastrana, Mark McDuff, and Fintan McCarthy.

And in Open, you've got: Jardevall, Havir, Plsek, Iorio, and Eklund.
And in the best PGT battle (evah!): Verdier, Foust, Johnson, and Penasack.

I'll be getting there Monday night. Staying at the HQ hotel.

NC Rally will be there crewing for Otis Dimiters and Matt Johnson. We are excitied, it's our first West Coast event and is the furthest any of us will have gone for an event. I'm just as happy not to be the one driving the rig out there! I'm working on the Movement Plan right now... just don't tell my boss that's what I do at my desk!

Alex P - which of those few words did you find hard to spell? "running?"

Ummm...no; if you think Jamie's afraid of competition you obviously don't know her very well

I'll let her address the actual reasons if she cares to...

You know? that's a really horrible chicken**** thing to say.

I would be happy to enter National.

YOU pay up the $1100 entry fee for me?
i simply dont have the money or sponsorship to run national

A bit of a cheap "pot shot" there...

**edit- Nice quick edit Jamie! inthe time it took me to write this you corrected what I thought was a bad reply. Good job. The first response was kinda bad so I will edit mine too.


there is no shame in running Regional, Subaru pays regional contingency too (which Jamie has a good possibility of taking some home)- that is what we did at S*D. Had we been running National, our plan would have been to sit back more on day 2 & quite possibly could've won PGT over Tanner as he had gearbox problems. Just didnt have the money to spend. That's just how it goes...

It will be a great rally, no doubt.

Come on now kids, play nice. One of the good things about Oregon Trail is that the Club and Pro guys all run all of the same stages, so it's easy for people to compare times.

All that said, I've got to think Verdier is going to blow the rest of the PGT field away. He is way way quick. I don't think Jamie would disagree, either.

Now, Group N. That field is wide open.

Christian,

Thanks for the post on Oregon Trail..It should be an event to remember.

I do agree that the entry list looks quite impressive. Not only will there be some great drivers, but some serious hardware present. Haven't seen nearly as many WRXs (especially in PGT) and STis on the list as this year. Many people have speculated on the outcome of the event, but as in years past, there will be some attrition. Very curious to see how things turn out...The addition of Stig Blomqvist should get the field pushing harder than ever. There are some young guns that will be pushing hard.. Oh wait, aren't you riding with one of them?

Most everyone on this board knows that Jamie's not afraid of competition, it's just the out of pocket for the entry.. We can all compare stage times at the end of the day, and sort it out between reginal and national entrants if we care to do so. If my sponsors were paying for me to run the national too, I'd be running for sure (at least to spice it up a bit). Instead, helping sponsor the event seemed like a better thing to do since my business (www.allwheelsdriven.net , in Oregon) is rally based. Also, helping facilitate more people to get into the sport is a higher priority than taking home a trophy in the "national".. There *could* be some quick times from NW regional entrants too, this is our backyard after all...

Rally On!

Since I won't be in a car this time....I will see you all at registration & various timing controls (like maybe an "O" control) over the weekend.

Looks like it will be a good event!

while you are all there you have to keep an eye out for the killer V-8 powered '04 s-10 piloted by jim cox in open. it makes the most spectacular sounds ever heard in the forest. it is not a typical s-10. very custom. i had a hand in building it. and have driven it a few times for fun at rallycrosses. it sounds very different than the v-8 vette. and is much more than a point and shoot vehicle. oh and watch out for flying gravel. it may not throw as much as jardevall's old volvo but it would give it a run for its money.

Looks like Jamie rolled on one of the last few stages? Looks like they are both ok though. Anyone know how bad the car is?

Didn't hear about the roll, but I left about 2 stages before the rally wrapped up. I did witness a roll right in front of me on the Scotty's Jig stage, (Stage 16? )There's a few pics that I took from the rally over in the Northwest forum, http://forums.nasioc.com/forums/show...=754190&page=2
Maybe I'll post a few pics over here as well. But that will have to wait until tomorrow.....sleepy time....
