New England Forest Rally« All Events July 18, 2014 - July 19, 2014
Headquatered at Sunday River Resort, the New England Forest Rally is an annual two-day stage rally that takes place on the back roads and logging tracks of Western Maine and Northern New Hampshire. Sanctioned by Rally America, NEFR is one of six National Championship rallies that take place in the United States. The two-day national competition features some of the world's best drivers including the return of former Rally America and X Games champion Travis Pastrana. Many local and regional enthusiasts compete right alongside the top national competitors.
The NEFR course is made up of dirt and gravel logging roads that are known as a favorite among competitors due to their challenging and technical demands. For the fans, New England provides stunning scenery and wildlife, with winding creeks and one-lane bridges that add beauty to the race. But the real thrill is witnessing the incredible skill of these drivers as they maneuver their cars (twisting, sliding, turning, and jumping) through the woods at speeds up to 100mph!
Spectators are welcome at designated stages of the event with transportation provided directly from Sunday River on both Friday and Saturday. Each morning Sunday River will also host a "Parc Expose" where all the teams parade their cars into an open area where fans can gather, mingle with the competitors, get autographs, and see the cars up close. Music, food, and fun are also part of the rally, with a Rally Village featuring vendors, exhibitors and food throughout the two days, and an awards party with barbecue on Saturday night.
