If you haven’t already heard, The New England Forest Rally was overwhelmingly chosen for “Rally of the Year” by RallyCar staff and national drivers.

According to RallyCar officials the event showed vast improvements over 2009 through expansion of the organizer’s relationship with the Sunday River Ski Resort and adding L.L. Cote as a new event sponsor – both of which assisted the organizers in successfully executing a fun and exciting event to conclude the 2010 Rally America National Championship season.

Drivers specifically enjoyed the fast and technical roads the New England Forest Rally is known for and putting on a show for fans at the annual Super Special that’s held at the Mexico Recreational Park with an entertaining jump that was sponsored this year by Red Bull.

The NEFR Organizing Committee continued to capitalize on the popular VIP bus tour they introduced two years ago by providing fans with buses to the famous Concord Pond stage. Organizers also introduced a number of new stage roads on the second day of competition centered around the popular fishing and hunting community of Errol in northern NH.

“The New England Forest Rally staff organized a well run and well executed event,” said RallyCar Managing Director, J.B. Niday, “With the addition of the MaxAttack! Two-Wheel Drive Series, the New England Forest Rally was a fitting background to finish the 2010 Rally America National Championship in dramatic fashion.”
