One of the Rites of Spring in the rallying community in the northeast USA is the Frost Heaves rally. In 2014 the Frost Heaves rally was voted “Rally of the Year” in the New England Region of the Sports Car Club of America (SCCA) by competitor voting. The Frost Heaves rally with its early March scheduling is always a crapshoot with respect to the weather. It could be very spring like, but also I have memories of being a control worker in this rally and having to deal with an 8-inch snow storm during the rally. You have to be ready for anything.
The Frost Heaves rally will be held on Saturday, March 14th. The rally will begin and end in New Hampton, NH at the 104 Diner at 752 Route 104. Rallymaster Scott Beliveau reports that this rally will challenge teams to follow tulip instructions as they explore approximately 140 miles of central New Hampshire back roads. Expert teams will be challenged to stay on course and on time. Novices are welcome and should have no problem following the tulip instructions. This rally may not be suitable for all cars, especially lowered cars. Paved and unpaved roads are used, but hopefully the competitors will not be able to tell any difference. Mud and frost heaves may further add to the challenge of the rally. No summer tires allowed; winter rated tires strongly suggested.
