RallyHo Motorsports to Contest Inaugural Great North Woods Rally

DUBLIN, NEW HAMPSHIRE -- The beautiful fall foliage of New Hampshire's Great North Woods will set the backdrop for RallyHo Motorsports attack on the newest event in the Sports Car Club of America's (SCCA) PerformanceRallysm Series.

Driver Mike White of Dublin, Navigator Chris Morand of Townsend, Mass., and the team's New Hampshire-based service crew will converge in Berlin, NH, with their specially prepared Saab 99 for the Great North Woods Rally. This event is part of the SCCA's ClubRallysm series and more than 40 other racing teams will compete. White is the top-rated NH driver racing in the event.

"The team's had a busy couple of months," White said. "A week after putting a new transmission in the car, we let took the car to a RallyCross in VT and let a complete stranger flog it as part of a contest. The car survived that test, so we're ready to go!

"We're very excited to have a rally in our home state," White said. "The sport has been receiving a lot more attention in the U.S. in the past couple of years, and it's great to have an new event in the Great North Woods. I'm happy we can present to the local audience."

SCCA PerformanceRally is often described as "real cars, on real roads, real fast." Unlike most types of auto racing, rally cars must remain street legal while also being able to withstand the punishment of rough forest roads at racing speeds. Cars run one-at-a-time down closed roads, and the fastest time wins.
