    Unfortunately I won't be in Idaho. I couldn't get my shit together on time. But 49 cars including the 7 sxs, I won't be surprise if we see an other overall win by a sxs. Looks like an awesome rally, next year for sure I'll be there. Good luck to all the teams.

    The Idaho Rally was amazing, For those of you on the forum like myself who have plenty of desert and short course knowledge this is great avenue to go have some fun in a SXS. Ill have a full race report to follow at some point but heres a few pictures from the Idaho Rally over the weekend.

    Greetings!

    We're really excited that more teams can join us on our rally adventures! As was mentioned, we are currently the ONLY rally sanctioning body that offers classes for: Bikes (RallyMoto), ATV's, and UTV's. But the good news is that we're the BIGGEST sanctioning body in North America dedicated to Rally!

    We're working to make a change to our schedule page that lists these classes right next to the event. So that you KNOW you can enter in your Bike/ATV/UTV and don't have to get a hold of the organizer.
    But in the mean time: Gorman Rally (SoCal), Prescott Rally (AZ), and Mendocino (NorCal), will be SxS events for 2017! This weekend the Rallye Saguenay in Quebec Canada is running ATV's and SxS! We will be having a discussion with the organizers of the Doo Wop rally in Washington to see if they would like to add SxS's to the event.

    To end my quick introduction -
    My name is Kris Marciniak, and I'm the West Coast Director of NASA Rally Sport. Along with the East Coast Director Anders Green, we oversee 20+ rally events across North America! The NASA is the National Auto Sport Association of which we run NASA Rally Sport under. Check out nasarallysport - and all over social media @NASARallySport

    Thanks,
    See you on the stages!

    - Kris

    So just and update on the next Rally Race, Currently 14 entries with Stephan and myself the only ones in UTV classes. It would be great to see some more representation from the SXS community as this form is super fun and Gorman is a more local rally (for me) heres the link if anyone is interested and if you guys have tech or just general questions feel free to ask myself or Chris who is @nasarallysport

    Here is what you need to be legal for rally racing if you have a bone stock side by side.
    - Custom race cage. I got mine from Rhys Millen Racing.
    - Aluminum roff covering driver and co-driver. 0.125 thick. (RMR)
    - SFI seats (Sparco)
    - SFI min 5 points harness (Sparco)
    - Full Doors.
    - 1, 10 BC extinguisher
    - Green sticker
    - Spark arrestor
    - 1 Rear view mirror
    - SFI nets. (driver and co-driver) (Sparco)
    - 3 emergency triangle
    - 1 Rally Spill kit
    - 1 Emergency kit
    - 1 showel
    - Snell Helmets (Sparco)
    - SFI suits (Sparco)

    THAT'S IT!!!!

    So if you've been racing off road, short course etc, your sxs should already be 95% ready.

    Gorman is gonna be an awesome rally and really easy on the machine too. All the roads are nice semi groomed trails, no whoops or big rocks. You only need 1 person to drive your truck and trailer to the service park, my girlfriend drive it and my co-driver and I work on the car during services if needed.

    If you have any questions you can message me.

We had a hiccup in transit and picked up a three minute time penalty which put us into 2nd For the event overall but we had a blast and can’t thank our supporters enough! ” said Hill

    ITP BajaCross. I've run those on my 800 S on this very trail hauling mail and they will let you scoot very fast without catching and over gripping. I think a competent driver and a UTV would blow this time for the 2W car away. I just might have to think about this one. Only drawback is going to be having a stout enough rig in case the inevitable happens and you get a "flyer". It's definitely not going to be able to perform like that Subi that lept off of Pikes Peak awhile back. 6 point cage for sure and maybe a ballistic parachute! LOL!!!
