Event celebrating fifth year in RBC, aims to become nat’l event in 2022
RANGELY | Rally Colorado Organizers are enthusiastic for the 2021 event, taking place June 5-6 as they welcome back teams and spectators both Saturday and Sunday. Rally Colorado will challenge rally cars and teams over 135 competition stage miles divided into 14 stages. The stages include the quintessential rugged mountains, vast plains, deep canyons, and high mesas included in years prior with three brand new stages never used before. The highlight of which is a super special stage where the crews will marvel fans, volunteers, and locals as they race around Columbine Park in Rangely, Colorado.
With 99% of the event taking place outdoors, organizers have worked with the local community to incorporate a safe family friendly environment to welcome back fans and spectators to watch the teams roar down the stage roads. The traditional Main Street Parade is scheduled for Friday, June 4 at 7-7:30 pm in “Rally Town USA,” Rangely, Colorado. A detailed spectator guide and full schedule will be available for download at www.rallycolorado.org along with a list of locations where printed guides can be obtained. The Guide will inform fans, locals and the like of the safe and approved designated viewing areas. It will also provide detailed safety instructions on how to prepare to watch the event.
In addition to counting toward the West Region points bracket of the American Rally Association as a Super Regional event, Rally Colorado will again kick off the 2020-2021 super season of the California Rally Series (CRS) Rally Championship. The CRS is the premier performance rally championship in the southwestern United States. The Series incorporates events from various sanctioning bodies in order to create a meaningful regional championship for its members. The Series celebrates more than 40 continuous years of performance rally, making it the longest running rally series in the United States.
Rally Colorado is a volunteer-run event, and its success depends on motorsports fans. There is no better way to spectate and experience the event than to volunteer and see first hand. Rally Colorado Organizers are working hard to ensure the volunteers are appreciated and plan for some fun prizes and surprises to later be announced for volunteers.
2021 will be a bold and exciting event as the organizers gear up to properly elevate the event to the National American Rally Association Championship Series in 2022. “We anticipate the 2021 entry list to be more mellow than 2020 due to tight scheduling with other events but we have a great route planned for the competitors along with some exciting opportunities to include the local community. We will be announcing a special surprise for our volunteers in a few weeks. Our goal is to use the 2021 event as an earnest test for our future National running.” Chairwoman, Samantha Chiarelli
The organizers encourage any interested or curious fans to volunteer and learn more about rally in North America. The continued growth of the sport offers many unique opportunities for people with any and all volunteer experience level. The organizers and seasoned volunteers are always excited to train new faces as course workers, bannering teams, and control workers and we openly welcome amateur radio operators to help fill our safety communications net team.
