Congratulations 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.

Planning for the 2016 Rally in the 100 Acre Wood is already well underway. There has been plenty of work going on behind the scenes. As plans are being finalized you will see news updates to the website.
New for 2016 is a different date, March 18-19, 2016. The rally will be moving to the middle of March, in hopes to run during better weather and in order to give more time for competitors after the SnoDrift rally in January.
Check back to our website and on our social media networks: facebook, twitter, and youtube for updates.
The Rally in the 100 Acre Wood offers many opportunities for spectators to interact with the drivers & crew, watch the cars drive the stages, and see the crew make repairs to their cars in the service area. All free of charge.
Download the Spectator Guide for the scheduled activities and maps to the spectator points. As a reminder, spectators are only allowed at the approved spectator locations.
In addition, parking is a problem on the forest’s narrow roads. Do not double-park and block these roads. All cars must park on the same side of the road. We must keep one side of the road clear and open for traffic. This is used as an access route for emergency vehicles.
Please follow the marshal’s directions when parking your car and please respect the Spectator Control Marshals. They work very long hours to ensure your safety and viewing enjoyment.
Competitors wishing to participate in the test day on Wednesday February 25th, can reserve time slots starting at 11:00am Central Standard Time (12:00 Noon Eastern, 9:00am Western) Friday February 13th 2015. The time slots will be available at: http://www.100aw.org/?product_cat=testing
Section 9 “Service Areas” in the Supplementary Regulations has also been amended.
