PRESCOTT, ARIZONA -- To better serve the Performance Rally community, the Arizona RallySport Association Inc. (ARA) has partnered with the Prescott Resort Conference Center and Casino to host the 2001 Prescott Forest SCCA ProRally. This agreement will ensure the continued growth of this important, penultimate round in the SCCA ProRally Championship series, and the sport in general.

"Entrants and fans alike will really enjoy the terrific amenities at the Prescott Resort," commented Bill Barfoot, Chief Organizer, "We'll have expansive reserved areas for the crew and Parc Expose, as well as great Start/Finish facilities. Better radio communications back to the resort will greatly improve our reporting capabilities from the stages."

A special room rate has been established for competitors and spectators. A block of 75 rooms have been put on reserve specifically for the rally. In addition to the premium rooms, restaurants and casino activity, the Prescott Resort will provide first-class accommodations for the event's operation, including a dedicated press and conference room, a dedicated timing and scoring room, an expanded conference room for Friday and Saturday night, as well as the awards breakfast on Sunday morning. Said Barfoot of the latter development, "We will finally be able to seat EVERYONE who wants to attend!"

SCCA Performance Rally, comprised of the national SCCA ProRally Championship, the regional SCCA ClubRally Championship, and local SCCA RallyCross events, starts its 28th consecutive season in late January.

Performance Rally is a globally recognized sport, with millions of fans worldwide. The sport is a unique test of endurance for both the participant and the machine, and thrives in environments where traditional racing activity never treads. Typical SCCA ProRally events will feature fields of 40 - 80 production-based automobiles, and cover hundreds of miles over a 12-24 hour period, with much of the competition under the cloak of darkness.
