Dear Volunteers, Competitors and Spectators,

Thanks for coming out to the 2022 New England Forest Rally. We are so excited to bring you the 31st running of this great stage rally. In our third year as an ARA event, I’m thrilled to see the sport of rally growing both in New England and across the USA. That means more cars, more excitement, and better events for the fans. As part of the ARA National Championship Series, we will have some of the world’s top teams competing right here in New England alongside teams from right in our own backyard.

This year, we are working to make NEFR even better for both competitors and fans! We are bringing new talent and technology to timing and scoring in order to improve the speed of results. Make sure to follow along in the ARA app.

Putting NEFR on each year is a huge undertaking and I want to thank our landowners (Seven Islands Land Co, Wagner Forest Management and Northeast Timberlands, the towns of Andover, Mexico, Peru & Woodstock, and the Maine Department of Conservation), local businesses, sponsors, and especially the volunteers who make the rally possible. Without all of you, none of this could happen. Thanks also to our host venues, Sunday River Resort and JML Trucking. And, of course, to all the competitors, crews, families, and fans for helping make the New England Forest Rally one of the best races in the US.

The two goals of NEFR are to put on a great rally and to help grow the sport as a whole. Want to help? Be respectful of our landowners, patronize our sponsors and local businesses and mention NEFR wherever you stop. Be smart, be safe, share us on social media, and most of all – have fun!
