Getting 'Sirius' about Rallying

Oregon Trail Rally 2007

Sirius Team members Gord and Jennifer traveled to Oregon this weekend as Rocket Rally Sevice Crew. The spectating on Friday evening was fantastic; a good view of some tarmac turns and of the final dirt stage, where some of the cars were lost and driving in circles. Many of the people I met while spectating at the track had never checked out a rally before. By Saturday afternoon we were out with a crash and a brake failure. This was only my third trip to America, but there have been some interesting changes since rally became an object of commercial appeal. America seems to have a different idea of what rallying is actually about, changing event location and format to suit PR needs. It wasn’t much of a story for RA this weekend though, with the big US name out on the first stage, and an Australian taking the win.

Congratulations to the Western Canadian teams!
