MaxAttack! raised the level of two wheel drive rally racing in the United States for the past few years. Thanks to the generous support of our sponsor during those years, Danza del Sol Winery in Temecula Valley, California, the Rallysports Group of America (RSGA) paid out a cash purse of $15,000 USD per year to be divided amongst the fastest teams competing in the MaxAttack! events.

Olympus MaxAttack! Event Update 4

-#214 Phil Meyers/Tracy Manspeaker are gambling a bit. The shift linkage on theirVolkswagen GTI broke, and the team had to stop and fix it on a hot stage. They figure they lost about 6 minutes, but, trying not to lose anymore time, they left their sump guard on the stage. The service crew has the shift linkage in good order now, but with no skid plate over the Washington rocks, they they are definitely rolling the rally dice!

-After the second service, the teams do a leg of 4 stages that do a big "out and back." The teams are on these stages right now.


-SS3- Smith Creek East (6.6 miles)
-SS4- Brooklyn East (7.0 m)
-SS5- Brooklyn West (7.0 m)
-SS6- Smith Creek West (6.6 m)

The Brooklyn stage is a classic in PNW rallying. A mainline road with relatively smooth gravel and very good camber characteristics, it encourages a team with the confidence to push. The corners are almost banked, and will reward a driver with the will to attack them. It's a favorite of local rallyists and visitors alike.
