THE DIRTY RAT

In a grand finale Simon gives the rally teams all they can ask for, and perhaps a little more.

THE DIRTY RAT

Saturday, September 8, 2018
by Simon Levear

The day started like most of the Saturday events - wet.  However, by the time rally cars reached the west side, the roads were dry and the skies had parted - it turned out to be a fine day for a road rally.


The rally route followed twisty, fun-to-drive roads over Chehalem Mountain and through Laurelwood, and included a stop at Bald Peak State Park.  

Rally master Simon Levear spiced the route with plenty of tantalizingly tricky offerings.  There were ONTO traps, intricate differences between an OR and an ITIS to explore, and even a number switch. There were two route controls after the final checkpoint waiting to trap the unwary. Every team visited at least two of the four route controls, except Team Gattman who saw only one.

Congratulations to Bob and Kathy Ellis for their SOP and first place overall finish.  Paul Eklund and Yulia Smolyansky took first in MASTERS class and second overall.  Jordon Green and Mike Nagle won the NOVICE class.
