Thank you to Kathy and Bob Sacry for putting together the rally. It had an entertaining group of roads, spiced with some relatively easy traps. Just what we needed for the first rally of the year. Thanks to Pat Biggar and Rick Ross, Steve Roberts and Don Gibson, Debbie Sjodin and Ardis Dull and Jack Heppes and Gary Coon for working the event. Without these folks, rallies like this would not be possible. Come and see us next month, when NWRC puts on the next Friday Nighter. And don’t forget about the Raindrop Rally on May 5th. It has no traps and is always a fun run. https://www.rainierautosports.com/events/2019/raindrop/default.htm

Here we go, kicking off another rally season! The first rally of the season is presented by ORCA. Here is what they say about their rally:
ORCA is putting on the first Friday Night Rally of the season, April 12th. The Rally Master team is Kathy and Dave Sacry. They have been rallying since 2006 and have written rallies since 2009. This rally, “Circle in a Circle II”, is based off of the original rally with more traps. The checkout is complete and 3 crews said the “rally was fun!”
Yes there are traps for the experienced rallists to add to the fun, be sure to brush up on your generals. If you are a Novice, there are separate instructions that avoids those traps, should help keep you on course, and should make it fun for you too.
It sounds like fun for everyone! Registration for this novice oriented event opens at 6:45 PM at the Eastgate Park & Ride Parking lot in Bellevue (14200 SE Eastgate Way). The drivers meeting is at 7:10 and first car out will be 7:31. The entry fee is $20. Don’t forget that we’re running the “bring a new team and your entry is free” special. The rally finishes at Brava Pizza and Pasta, 120 Glen Ave in Snohomish. Come on out and join us for a good time, and bring your friends!
Check out our 2019 Schedule. It is going to be a fun year!
Well, Charles Aggenbach did a masterful job of putting the course together. This was his first time as a rallymaster, and he did a great job. There were some traps, and they were clean. The measurements and calculations were good. The course was very entertaining, and everyone seemed to have a good time, except for car 2, who created their own trap to miss checkpoint 1. We had a good turnout with 17 cars. The October Friday Nighter usually draws a few more entrants. Pat Biggar and Rick Ross won the whole thing with a score of 19.
Thanks to the workers from RASC who helped make this event happen.
The championships were finalized as well. Check the Championship Results for the final standings.
It was a fun season with up and down attendance. We are hoping to improve that for 2019. We look forward to seeing you next year.
