This year’s New England Forest Rally (NEFR) will be held as a Friday/Saturday event counting toward the American Rally Association National Championship series.

Sunday River will have a “RALLY VILLAGE” display area on both Friday & Saturday.  If you have sponsors or know of other companies who would like to be vendors or set up an exhibit at the village, please contact Karl Stone [].



Notice to all NEFR Participants:

New England Performance Rally, LLC (NEPR) has worked very hard over the years with various landowners in the region to obtain and keep the right to use their land for stage roads.  One must remember that many of these stage roads are private, active logging roads.  Logging trucks are paid to deliver logs.  To do so safely they travel the middle of the road and cannot maneuver to avoid a vehicle they do not expect to see on the road.  Every landowner has made it very clear that, if we have a repeat of past problems – that is, trespassing – their land will be closed to us for good.  No more New England Forest Rally.

NEPR has agreed to notify all Participants – Drivers, Crew and Workers.  The landowners’ roads are CLOSED at all times throughout the year except for date & times approved for the NEFR.  Anyone found on the roads at any other time will be banned from competing in NEPR Rallies.  If you desire to use any of these landowners’ roads for testing, you must obtain prior written permission from the landowner and submit a copy to NEPR clearly stating the date, time, and road(s) that you have permission to use.  The landowners reserve to right to set conditions on said use which may include a road use fee or actual denial of access.

Event Support:

The New England Forest Rally is conducted by and for the many competitors and volunteer workers.  The NEFR depends upon entry fees and sponsors to cover the costs.  Volunteers give their time so competitors will have a rally in which to compete.

NEPR has developed a number of marketing programs available to competitors and/or their sponsors.  Note that these packages, when sold by the competitor, all contain the competitor’s entry fee.  These opportunities are all contained in the document entitled “NEFR Sponsorship Support Packages.”
