A new stage rally, the Empire State Performance Rally, will be coming up on April 20, 2013 in Rock Hill, New York. It appears that this will be the only tarmac stage rally event in the United States. The Empire State Performance Rally will include over 100 miles of competitive stages with a total distance of about 230 miles. One stage will be 18 miles long running through the village of Rock Hill, NY, at one point paralleling New York State Route 17.
The headquarters and the stages for the Empire State Performance Rally Headquarters and stages are located in Rock Hill, New York which is located 80 miles north of New York City. The rally will be held with cooperation from local businesses and the Rock Hill Fire Department.
The Empire State Performance Rally will be part of the NASA Rally Sport Series for 2013. The size of the entry list is impressive and includes many of the top rally teams in the northeast USA. Due to a scheduling conflict I will not be able to attend this rally, but I suggest that if you are not able to compete in this event, please attend or better yet volunteer to be a worker during the rally to help ensure the success of this new rally.
