2017 Call for Volunteers

It’s Rally in the 100 Acre Wood time once again everyone! It is coming up soon on March 17th & 18th. As always, we will need hundreds of volunteers to make this event happen. The majority of volunteers are needed for Marshal positions (i.e. blocking roads/drives to ensure the course is safe), crowd control at spectator areas, and start/finish line workers.  These are things everyone can do, and get you some free 100aw Swag and front-row viewing of the race action! So, invite your friends and come help.

In addition, we always need a good number radio operators, those being licensed Ham radio operators. The ham radio net is the backbone the communications of our rally, and thus a vital component to its success.

We are always in need of qualified medical professionals to help ensure the safety of our volunteers, teams, and spectators. These positions are hard to fill, and we are always scrambling to ensure proper coverage. So, please, spread the word to anyone you know that is an EMT, paramedic, physician, nurse, etc.

While both days (Friday and Saturday) would be great, you don’t have to work both days. Just please make sure you specify the correct day(s) when you register in Rally Master Pro.

Those willing to help and volunteer to put on this great event, please register online in Rally Master Pro at http://rallymasterpro.com/workers?group=6

If you have any questions or concerns regarding volunteering for our event, you can address them to me at randy@null100aw.org, and if I can’t answer them, I’ll get them to the proper people for an answer.

Congratulations to Pastrana and Edstrom

tp2Congratulations to Travis Pastrana & Christian Edstrom for winning the 2016 Rally in the 100 Acre Wood. There was a tight race all weekend between Travis and fellow SRTUSA teammate David Higgins at this years race.

After the first day of competition on Friday Travis was leading Higgins by 8 seconds but said going into Saturday that “Higgins is going to turn it up and we will have too as well if we want any shot at this!”

Throughout the second day of the rally Higgins started to win stages and claw back time on Pastrana. With 2 stages to go, Higgins was able to retake the lead by 4.9 seconds but ultimately fell to Pastrana on the last stage due to engine trouble.

Top 3 Results:

Position Car # Driver / CoDriver Overall Time
1 199 Travis Pastrana / Christian Edstrom 1:43:07.0
2 75 David Higgins / Craig Drew 1:44:49.3
3 90 Lauchlin O’Sullivan / Scott Putnam 1:53:56.9
