Getting 'Sirius' about Rallying

New Challenge for New Team at the 2009 Oregon 1000 TSD Rally

orgblack-logo02The newest incarnation of the Sirius Rally Team will be in action at one of the more demanding TSD rallies of the season, the Oregon 1000 Rally, coming up July 31 – August 2, 2009.  The 2009 edition of the Oregon 1000 will venture into Central Oregon, rather than the southern coast.  Staying true to its name, the route will once again cover 1000 kilometers of some of the best rally roads Oregon has to offer, and contain significantly more unpaved roads than previous editions.  It starts in the greater Portland area and finishes near Hood River, with a Saturday intermission in Prineville, Oregon.  

Driver Jennifer and codriver Ben will be competing in the equipped (read: unlimited) class with Ben’s WRX wagon.  This will be the second outing for the team with the fancy computer setup, and their first gravel event.  Oregon 1000 is a much longer, more serious gravel adventure compared to the paved afternoon SnoGit rally, with a much more competitive entry field.  The entry list is full of familiar friends from the 2008 Alcan 5000 Winter Rally, many in different teams and classes, but all capable of keeping their scores low and winning the Oregon 1000.

The Oregon 1000 will also be an occasion to celebrate the birthdays of Ben and one of the Tabor rally clan.  Alex will be traveling down from BC again to codrive Robert, so there will be some relaxed fun and socializing in addition to the challenges and excitement of a summer tsd rally.
