Prescott Forest ProRally defined...
Annual Prescott Forest ProRally is the 9th event in the SCCA ProRally
National Championship. It's all about real cars, on real roads, going real
fast. To a rally driver it's an all out race on an unknown dirt road,
trying by sheer concentration to blend a high-strung, production based
race car and the road into an unbeatable stage time. To a co-driver it's
the thrill of the world's greatest amusement park ride combined with the
challenge of performing with great mental accuracy under demanding
conditions. For the spectator it's an admission-free, "in your
face" view of the most exciting and demanding of motor sports.
kinds of road sections are used: stages where the cars are at speed (their
drivers trying to get from start to finish in the lowest elapsed time
possible), and transits, where cars run strictly at legal speed to get to
the next stage start. In an SCCA ProRally, each vehicle's team consists of a
driver and co-driver (or navigator.) The exact course is kept secret until
just before the event. The cars then start at one or two minute intervals
and race at top speed against the clock over competition stages. The race
stages can combine into some 150 miles in an event. High speeds can
be reached on the straight-aways with the team achieving the fastest
combined times over the competition stages winning the event in their
class and/or overall. Drivers stay on the existing roads, never blazing
their own trails.
