Trail Notes ... RAL FLAG: ALMOST -We are pleased to report that our ace porter, Steve Ruddick, who was literally at deaths door a short 1ile ago is now home and recovering nicely from defibrillator implant surgery.

You can send your good wishes to Steve at NEW SERIES -Hot off the press. A new off road sanctioning body has been formed. The name is "World Series Of Off Road Racing". Planned headquarters for the new series is Crandon, Wisconsin. An office will be located in downtown Crandon, separate and distinct from Crandon International Off-Road Raceway. Offices will also be maintained in other geographical areas of the USA Crandon was selected as the location due to its status as home track for most of the best short course off road racing. This series will include off road racing classes presently referred to as "Pro" and "Sportsman". The addition of new classes will be reviewed. "Crandon Classes are scheduled to be part of the World Series and will race a portion of the 2007 schedule. The World Series intends to run a minimum of eight races featuring 16 rounds of off road racing under a "Points Chase" format in the greater Midwest. 14 track locations have contacted the "Series" or have been contacted by the Series. All tracks are being evaluated. Four 2007 race dates have been signed. The Series is currently exploring national television options and programming. Both Pro and Sportsman racing is being considered. Doug Davis, promoter of Crandon Raceway events is presently serving as Managing General Partner of the Series. Additional staff will be announced. Davis said "We feel a tremendous sense of urgency to launch a meaningful series in the tightest time frame possible. Substantial progress has been made in a very short period. The response to the World Series Of Off Road Racing has been enthusiastic by racers and potential sponsors. The current mailing address for the "Series" is: P.O. Box 99, Crandon, Wi 54520.

Macey L "Corky" McMillin -Corky, well known and liked by all that knew him entered the 1976 Baja 1000 with his son, Mark.

BIG THANK You -Curt LeDuc threw a rod in his diesel tractor 1aulin' up to the SNORE Midnight race. He called a friend who ame up to Victorville with another tractor and Curt went on to Vegas and won the race. Bemoaning the fact that he had no tractor to haul his truck to Bark River, Michael De Haas, KC Hilites Prez, offered Curt the use of the KC tractor. Michael took Curt back to Williams, Arizona, KC Hilites home and Curt drove the rig back to Cherry Valley and then on to Bark River. Curt finds it impossible to put his feelings into words so we're trying to do it here. Michael, you've pushed the helping a friend boundary to the limit. Thaaaaaaaaanks.

Douglas went on to win the Pro 4 race the following day and then won his second World Championship BorgWarner Shootout, capping a dominating weekend. In a day full of upsets and Cinderella finishes. It was a full weekend of history making moments, eight 2006 off-road World Champions were crowned at Crandon Raceway during the recent BorgWarner World Championship Off-Road Races. The famous Crandon track hosted a huge crowd of off-road fans eager to watch exciting Lucas Oil Championship Off-Road Racing. Up for grabs were annual Crandon World Championship rings, titles and Forest County Potawatomi bonus money during Saturday racing action. Rodrigo Ampudia, of Ensenada, Mexico, in his Papas & Beer Ford Pro-Lite Goodyear truck made off-road racing history by being the first Mexican national to ever win a race and World Championship title at the Crandon track over a field of 22 Pro-Lite trucks. The 21-year old Ampudia was the second youngest driver to win a World Championship title at Crandon. The youngest racer was Robbie Gordon, who pulled off the feat in 1989 at 18 years of age. He joins Gordon as the only rookie truck drivers to ever win a World Championship at Crandon. Ampudia's stunning victory on Saturday was capped with a standing ovation by the packed house as he accepted congratulations in Crandon's Victory Circle. "I am excited and very proud about this win and being the Pro Lite World Champion," said Ampudia. "It is an honor to take this World Championship back to Ensenada and all of Mexico," said the elated rookie. Ampudia went on to win the second round of Pro Lite racing the following day, scoring back to back wins In another stunning victory, Mike Oberg, of Eagle River, WI, led from wire-to-wire in his AMSOII./ Kumho/Rancho Chevrolet, to grab the coveted World Championship ring in the hotly contested Pro 2 race. No stranger to victory circle, Oberg has been an accomplished off-road racer for many years, winning multiple World Championship titles at Crandon in various classes. In 2006, Oberg moved to the Pro division. Oberg has now won four Crandon World Championship titles in four different classes-Single Buggy, Sportsman Stock Truck, Sportsman 2 Truck and now his biggest -the 2006 Pro 2 Crandon World Championship. "Mike has just about done it all in this sport," said Davis. "He is a poster boy for moving through the ranks of off. road racing, winning in everything he drives and now proving he is one of the top Pro drivers in the World." Oberg was the defending Sportsman 2 World Champion winning that title last year but moved up to the Pro ranks this season. The Sportsman 2 truck race was won by Dan Baudoux, of Hemlock, MI, in his CST BFGoodrich Ford. Baudoux won both Sportsman 2 events over the weekend. Dave Waldvogel, of Fond du Lac, WI, won the Sportsman Stock Tru~k ring, ; !so in a _Ford, bringing.home a World Championship title for firsr year sponsor Bendix as well as Toyo Tires. John Mason, Plymouth, WI, was the Super Buggy winner, scoring another World Championship for Goodyear. Craig Metz, Rhinelander, WI, held off a huge field of 29 other Light Buggies winning the World Championship for the class in his Kumho buggy. Mark Steinhardt, Rhinelander, WI, won the Single Buggy World Championship ring and defended the title he wo last season. Mark was the only racer to do so at the 2006 BorgWarner World Championships. Steinhardt repeated in Victory Circle on Sunday, scoring back to back wins. BAJA PITS RAFFLE - Baja Pits is running a Baja 1000 raffle.

WHAT HAPPENS IN VEGAS •s-•.■1 Goes Off Road At OFF-The Speedway By Judy Smith Photos: Trackside Photo Pat Dean had more troubles than a soul can bear over the weekend but he took the Class 1 main event win in his Bunderson Chevy. _ some practice, fine tune the handling, and go all out on Saturday at the last event. Egos apparently made it hard for some racers to remember that everything hinged on Saturday's last race, but that also made a good show of it. Robby Gordon took the win when it counted, he drove his great looking Chevy to the Main Event gold medal, seen here nicely airborne. The Herbst family was heavily involved in bringing the show to Vegas originally, and they were a big presence (of course, including the name of the event) here again, although, not as big as expected. Troy had seriously injured his Achilles tendon during an informal bas-ketball game some weeks before, Las Vegas, NV: SCORE took liberties with the Las Ve-gas Speedway dirt track again this year, and put on an excit-ing display of off road racing for a grandstand full of enthu-siastic spectators. The neat little din track, used mostly for Spring Car rac-ing, got remodeled inro a mile and a half of what SCORE called a "chunk of Baja", and then they turned a select group of trucks and buggies loose on it to give the spectators an idea of how exciting off road racing can be. They didn't actually use the dirt track, but ran around the outer edge of it, out beyond the frnce, and in the infield, on a course that included seven turns, two of them hairpins, day and Saturday) and the and he'd already missed the some moguls, some medium fourth heat for each class CORR short course event in sized bumps, one flying bump would be labeled the "Main Chula Vista, would miss this at the finish line, and a brief Event", and that would deter-one, and maybe more.

This year, know-ing how hot it had been last year, many of the teams had brought their wading pools, and, of course, most had their big fans running to cool the mechanics. There was an interesting dis-play at the edge of the Herbst compound. A bunch of little trucks, called "Trophy Kans" that looked like offspring from the Herbst race cars. They had Subaru motors, and kids aged seven and up can race 'em. ln fact, if they hadn't been paying attention they'd have had kids "borrowing" them all day long. The neat thing is that the kid's dad can fit in them also. The race cars at this event were all required to be desert cars, so they couldn't do a lot of modifying and no one could bring thei1 CORR vehicles here ro race. Shorter ties were al -lowed, and some adjusted theit shot ks, and a few of the bug gies. Bryan Freeman in particu-lar, added nerfbars. He'd taken a Lad tumble after touching tires last year, and didn't want to do that again. Cameron Steele was once again racing in multiple classes.

Not only that, but he was announcing a CART race at San Jose during Alan Pflueger did quite well for his first short course weekend, he ended up second overall in his Chevy Trophy Truck.

There were lots of youngsters in attendance, every one of them a potential future racer. The race program started at 7 p.m., with the first heat of Trophy Trucks. This was guar-anteed to get the audience revved up, because they could see Robby Gordon lined up near the back of the pack in his Chevy. He was going to have to work up through traffic. Marty Coyne jumped to the front of his Robby Gordon-built Ford, with Ed Herbst chasing him in his Ford.

It was 10 o • clock. This time Coyne got the hole shot again, but Gordon was right with him. On the first lap Gordon lost his brakes. He had to do a lot of down shifting to who the truck down in the cor-ners, and he was feeling the lack of tire tread. Coyne, and many of the others, were running the BFG Krawler (originally made for rock crawlers, but debuted on off road trucks a·t this event last year), which gave them a lot of grip. Coyne continued to lead, and Gordon fought val-iantly to catch him, but then lost ground in every turn. On the other hand, no one caught him either. B.J. Baldwin was steady in third, while behind SACo onAoad @) him various things happened. Steele spun and went over the berm in the finish line turn. Steinberger spun, Huffman got all crossed up and missed the finish line jump altogether. Pflueger had a good battle with Ed Herbst, and finally got around him. And at the end, Coyne had the win and Gordon was second, with B.J. Baldwin third. Coyne thanked Gordon for "the clean race", and went on to say, "To beat Robby is an honor for our team." The audience loved every minute of it. The second race on Friday night was for the 1600 cars, with 13 of them on the track together. Dave Caspino got a little off cours.e as he went over the finish line jump the first time in his Lothringer. He'd raken rhar line in practice bur in the meantime, rhe rrack workers had built a big berm right where he landed. It couldn't be described as a smooth landing. Kevin Graves, who's been racing the CORR events, was looking good, and moved up through traffic in his Jimco. Lisa Grint had some-thing wrong with her Bunder-son, and dropped out early. Steele, who was in front from the second lap on, went on to take the win. Burgess was sec-ond and Caspino, who finally got that landing right, was third. When they came out the sec-ond time, there was a lot of bumping in the infield turn, and Caspino emerged in the lead, with Graves second, Steel third, and Burgess fourth. They did a lot of passing and re pass-ing, and in the heat of battle, Graves got pushed sideways and lost several positions. Curt Geer had the lead on the sec-ond lap with Bryan Freeman second in his Fraley. Frank Puglia came off the finish line jump wrong, and the landing looked painful, bur he kept moving. At the end, Freeman took the win, Caspino was sec-ond and Cody Freeman (Bryan's brother) was third. Freeman was in a hurry to leave the finish line interviews, say-ing he'd "lost reverse in the first race, so I gotta go back and drain the oil -get all the chunks out." SI IPPING AVM• ABI E The miscellaneous small trucks were the third group to start on Friday night. There were 10 Class 7s, two 7S trucks and two 7SX. And in rhe 7SX group, Cameron Steele broke an axle on his wife's Ford, and parked ir for the resr of the -Page 10 October 2006 weekend. That lefr just Perry McNeil, Jr., in another Ford, ro make laps. He got some good short course practice in. In Class 7 Larry Roeseler and Broe Ross, both in Fords, did some pushing and shoving early in the race, while Shawn Wanzek got his Ford stuck on a berm. It seemed to take forever to get him off. The two 7S trucks, Tyler Fox and Aaron Gomez, were evenly matched, but only Gomez got all the laps done, to start the weekend with a win. Fox tore up his front end. McNeil, Jr., in 7SX, was also a winner, since he completed all his laps. Class 7 actually had a pretty fair race, and Roeseler took the win, with Ross in second place, and David Binns, another Ford, in third. There were eight Fords and two Toyotas in this class. When they came back out for their second heat on Fri-day, all the Class 7 trucks were there, but there was only one 7S and 7SX. It was dark by this time (9: 15), and some of the trucks had their lights on. Roe-seler went into the lead, with Ross chasing him, and Barry Karakas in third in one of the Toyotas. It was pretty much a single file race, and Roeseler took the win, with the other two following in order. Roeseler said it was "so much fun". But then, it always is for the win-ner. Friday's fourth race, at about 7:50, was for C lass 10 and the SCORE Lite cars, with only three cars in Class 10, and five in SCORE Lite. They started the Class 10s first, waited a few seconds and flagged off the SCORE Lites. Darren Hardesty put his AlumiCraft into the lead in the 10s, while Steele led the SCORE Lites in his Desert Assassin. He had Ty Godde pushing him in his Henry. The SCORE Lites had a good race for the lead, and also for third, while in Class 10 Dalke chased Hardesty and Ron McBeath, Jimco, chased him. Hardesty took the win, with Dalke, whose throttle was stick-ing on the last lap, second. Hardesty said it was "a lot of fun!", but later reported that he'd had a little shifting prob-lem. Steele took the SCORE Lite win, and Rob Martensen moved up to finish second in his Chenowth after Godde pulled off into the infield. For their second heat on Friday, it looked about the same, except that Chad Cum-mings got off the line first in the SCORE Lites, and Steele had to work a bit to get past him. Once he did, he went on steadily, to take the SCORE Lite win, and Martensen threaded through traffic to take second. In the Class 10 group, Hardesty led all the way and Dalke, who was driving with a not-yet-healed broken wrist, tried to get him. Hard-esty took the win again, and Dalke wondered if he could get him "with two hands." He was second. Hardesty, out of breath at the finish, said, "We were driving hard that time."

Dean was fourth and Herbst fifth, fol-lowed in by Boyle. On Saturday, they did the whole thing over again. The grandstands were a little less full, thanks to a massive traffic jam that affected anyone trying to drive through or near North Las Vegas. A propane storage facility had had an explosion on Friday during the races, and a 20,000 gallon tank had gone up.

Las Vegas Events and SCORE held off the start for 15 minutes to allow a s many as possible to get there, but they couldn't wait too long, because they had a time limit within which they had to get it all done. The schedule went the same way as Saturday's, so after the autograph session, they started the evening with the Trophy Trucks again. By now Gordon had repaired his brakes, the ra-diator, which had taken a rock in Friday's race, and put on some new tires, very similar to what the BFG drivers were run-ning, but, of course, Toyos. He had 37 inch tires on the front and 40 inchers on the rear. Aside from the tires, he said he was using the same set-up here that he'd run at the Baja 500 in June. Gordon got the hole shot and Coyne was behind him in hot pursuit. Pete Sohren ran third. He called his truck a "big old beast", and said it was heavier and had less power than the others. Wyllie got only into the third lap, and parked his truck, and also on the third lap Coyne slowed, his right, rear tire going flat, and smoking,. Gordon built a huge lead, with Sohren now second and Jesse Jones in third place, followed by Bobby Baldwin, and Coyne, who was limping around on that flat. Ultimately, Gordon took the win, with So"hren sec-ond and Jones in third. In the second heat, Ed Herbst got the hole shot, and wowed the audience by getting up on two wheels as he went through the very difficult Turn 3, which was not only a hair-pip, but also climbed a fence. He made it, but B.J.Baldwin took a hit, spun, and pulled off to the side of the track. Herbst went on in the lead, chased by Alan Pflueger and Albert McMullen in his new Chevy truck. He was a little worried about his transmission lasting the evening. Cameron Steele was last through Turn 3, his hood flapping after having booted B.J.

The Freemans and Graves were the money winners for the weekend. The first Saturday small truck heat got off to a tidy start, but then as they headed out of the infield and onto the parking lot (the same place the 1600s slid around and got jammed up); Roeseler spun out and jammed things up, giving Ross a chance to build a big lead. It had either been watered too much, or it was slippery with gravel, because on the next lap Billy Manfroy spun in the same place. Ross built a huge lead, with Roeseler trying vainly to catch up, and behind him Karakas fought off a challenge by Binns. Someone rolled under the big Orleans sing on the north end of the track, and all that could be seen of it were its tires. Ross, who avoided all the hazards, said he "drove as hard as I could -pretty excited to beat Larry!" He got the win, followed in by Roeseler and Binns. In the 7S grou.p-i--t was-Aaron Gomez this time, saying he was "stoked", because he hadn't even been sure he'd get the truck ready to race, not to mention getting a win. Perry McNeil Jr. once again com-pleted the race, to be declared the 7SX winner. After he fin-ished someone pointed out to him that the truck rolled over at the start of the pavement was his dad. Apparently Perry Jr. hadn't recognized him up-side down. Sr. was o.k ... The final event for the small trucks started off with Ross in the lead and Roeseler right on his tail in the Class 7 ranks. Roeseler was having a problem with his throttle sticking and his brakes over-heating, a consequence of hav-ing run into the wall in the first race this evening. Still, he gave it his all. Ross and Roe-seler were all by themselves in front of the pack after Manfroy faded away. Shawn Wanzek moved into third, even though he was dragging a part of his rear suspension for the last couple of laps. Ross got the win, Roeseler was second and Wanzek finished third with only second and third gear left, and that broken up-link. In the 7S battle Tyler Fox led all the way, relieved to make it to the finish. He said he'd al-most rolled over, but he'd hit the barriers and they held him upright. And in the 7SX class, Perry McNeil got another finish, and the win, in spite of the fact that his exhaust was dragging. He said he didn't mind, because it "ran better that way." In Saturday's first Class 10/ SCORE Lite event, Darren Hardesty got a big lead right off the start, and there was Ron Dalke in second place, chasing him again. Robert McBeatrh was third. In the SCORE Lites Cameron Steele w@-nt into the lead, with Rob Martensen second and Godde third, but then Godde spun and dropped to last on the second lap. This was a parade, although Hardesty and Dalke were really going at it hard, they still fin-ished in the same order in which they'd started, with McBeath third. And in the SCORE Lites, it was Steele again, followed by Martensen and Cummings. For their Main event it was the same cast again, and they started out in pretty much the same order, except for some reason McBeath was at the very rear. He must have got banged around in the start melee. Hardesty took off in front and Dalke chased him. By the fourth lap Dalke was close on Hardesty, and when Hardesty didn't get the finish-Continued on page 14 Fourth place overall in the 1600 category went to Curt Geer, he's Perry McNeil drove his Ford Ranger to a fourth place overall in the Not the greatest weekend for Ed Herbst, a 2nd and a 1st place finish seen here hustling to the flag in his Lothringer. ____ Class 7 contest, he's seen here at takeoff. in Trophy Truck, but he ended up 5th overall in his Ford.

Ronco was second, also reporting a perfect night, "other than getting second place." And in third it was Quinn, who said his sliding ax-les, which he was testing here, worked perfectly.

1.J\.12C 25TH OMV ADAC RALLYE DEUTSCHLAND Loeb/Citroen Take The Gold By Martin Holmes Photos: Maurice Selden Sebastien Loeb and his Citroen Xsara took the win in Germany, his 201' win in a very impressive rally career. More records have come Sebastien Loeb's way.

This victory, how-ever, was not just about Loeb's brilliance, it was also a lot to do with uncannily correct weather predictions on the first day of the event, the accuracy and precision of which stunned rival teams. It was another Citroen walkover, their cars fin-ishing not only 1-2 overall, with new number two driver Dani Sordo ably supporting Loeb, but in a Citroen C2 S1600 Kris Meeke proved quite the fastest JWRC driver, despite delays be-cause of brake trouble and then a puncture which had to be changed on a stage.

Only five JWRC cars (those of Meeke, Valousek, Pressac, Barry Clark and Tirabassi) would have the fran-tic race against time to be ready the following weekend, the other end of the Baltic Sea. All the Fiesta ST challenge car drivers planned to use their same cars next week. The en-couragement by the organisers for using diesel powered cars was largely responsible for see-ing the first BMW for six years, on this occasion a 120, on a world championship. The pre-vious time was when a privateer ran a 325i Coupe in Corsica and Catalunya in 1999 and 2000. The rally route this year was planned so that private driv-ers could refuel their cars at commercial filling stations en route. Shakedown may have been over a short route (3.18km) but it was tricky. As overnight rain cleared away, the roads got drier, and the top drivers were persuaded to keep making more runs, but the more cars that covered the route, the more the surface was being covered with gravel. Francois Duval made a good time, then Stephane Sarrazin, Sebastien Loeb, Petter Solberg and Dani Sordo all went faster. But when Solberg tried to beat them all he was caught out on the gravel and heavily crashed his car. Extra time was allowed for Shakedown after the insuing delay and Duval went fastest. Initial examination of Solberg's wreckage showed that the roll cage seemed to be intact so hopes were high in the Prodrive camp. Then it was discovered that the engine cambelt system was dam-aged and an engine change would be necessary. The team worked into the night, fingers crossed nothing else would emerge which would make their work worthless, thinking all the time of Corsica 2003 when Sol-berg, in similar circumstances, eventually came on to win the event. Leg 1 8 Stages, asphalt, 134. 72kms. The big story overnight was the hard work by the Prodrive team to make Petter Solberg's car ready for the start. The clouds intermittently sent down their rains, leaving the teams guessing at what the weather held for the day. The traditions of the Rallye Deutschland were up to expec-tations. Wet and muddy on Stages 1 and 2, almost com-pletely dry on 3 and 4 -and when the cars arrived at Bostalsee for the midday service it was pour-ing with rain! Sebastien Loeb stalled on the first stage yet still beat the field by 8.8 seconds. Marcus Gronholm finished the first stage in fifth place, not re-ally happy, "We haven't rested this car on asphalt in the wet!" Solberg reckoned that all things considered things were going well, there were no residual problems from the accident. Citroen driv-ers had an epidemic of stalling. Loeb went on to make best time on Stage 3 as well, his teammate Dani Sordo made best times on UNLOCK AND YOU'RE READY TO ROCK Stages 2 and 4. Halfway through the day, Citroens were 1-2, while privateer Xsara drive Toni Gar-demeister was sixth. Xavier Pons, who was lying seventh, however, arrived with a smashed bonnet and broken windscreen, a legacy of a missed pacenote call. Gronholm was happier in the drier conditions of Stages 3 and 4, and got up to third place ahead of Solberg and Manfred Stohl. Stephane Sarrazin started with a full wet set-up, which was wrong, and had brakes which were too aggressive for the con-ditions. Chris Atkinson was building his confidence in the conditions, "Wet conditions on asphalt are unusual for me, but I learned a lot about these con-ditions on Rally Ireland earlier this year!" Ekstrom was also hav-ing new experiences, surely he was used to racing in the rain! "Yes, but we do not have mud on the road in circuit racing ... !" Francois Duval was up to fifth but then slid off the road and lost time trying to drive back over the grass. Ford's Stobart VK team were already in the wars, Jari-Matti Latvala went off the road and stopped on the first stage (causing a blockage which led to the stage "being inter-rupted) and on Stage 4 Matthew Wilson lost time with a discon-nected turbocharger pipe, but they both went on to score manu-facturers points. Another driver out of the action prematurely was Stepan Vojtech who went off on stage 4. The afternoon witnessed the great meteo miracle.

It was uncanny, almost to religious proportions, the way that the roads up to the start line of Stages 5, 6 and 7 were dry, then as the cars waited to start these stages the rains fell. The miracle was unbelievable, competitors noticed that the road leading away from Stage 7, for example, was completely dry again. George Black, Ford's tyre manager and a legend in his own right in this work, was dumbfounded. "How on earth could Citroen have got their predictions so right? For us there was absolutely no indica-tion that the rain would come there. I just do not understand how they did it!" Citroen's trick was to run tyres with many more cuts than other BF Goodrich users, and two grades softer as well Loeb did not have everything his own way, however. He suf-fered two punctures in the after-noon but the mousses worked. Rumours that Loeb had dry con-ditions were soon scotched by drivers. Sordo, running third, said it was the same for every-one. Loeb came to the end of the day with a lead of 42. 7 seconds over teammate Sordo, with Gar-demeister over two minutes be-hind Loeb, though only 5.4 sec-onds in front of Cronholm. Meanwhile the only sad face at Citroen was that of Pons' co-driver Carlos del Barrio, "This was my 200th rally, a time for fun and celebration, but I made the worst error of my career. On the event when Sordo was promoted to Pons' previous po-sition in the Kronos team, it was not the happening that Pons needed. Drivers were flying on and off the road. Sarrazin had a big off and stalled. Duval went off and withdrew after his excur-sion on Stage 7. He sensed his three minute delay on the stage and Five Minute Penalty for miss-ing Stage 8 destroyed any hope of success, on top of the collapse of Kiss-Me's sponsorship meant he was losing too much money if he carried on. The damage to his car had been minimal. Solberg meanwhile was going steadily. JWRC drivers did not tackle the first stage because they were re-routed following Latvala's inci-dent, but Kris Meeke was going well scoring best times on Stage 2 and 3. One driver was already missing, the Rookie Kalle Pinomaki, who went off the road shortly after the start of Stage 2 .. On Stage 4 Meeke fell down to 11th out of the remaining 12 runners when he had to tackle the stage with no brakes at all. Bernd Casier inherited the lead ahead of Brice Tirabassi and Germany's Aaron Burkart. Kosciuszko was struggling with his lgnis. :In the vineyard stages the Swift is much better, the lgnis always suffers from rear suspen-sion design troubles, so slow cor-ners are difficult, and the lgnis is a lot less stable on the faster stretches as well!" Pavel Valousek was baulked by Meeke, the Rookie Barry Clark punctured on Stage 2 and had to change Dusty Times

Troy Johnson took over the wheel duties for Laps 4 - 6, and motored to the Finish Line along with Joey Dusthoff for the checkered flag and a First Place win. Troy Johnson said "It was real dark when we lost the alternator on the last lap, and the dark mud made it hard to read the berms, too." Johnson reported "no rain" on his tour of wheel duty. "] love the night!" Rick Wilcoxon led all the way in Class 1, took home all the marbles and took the overall win as well in his great looking car. Second Place in Class 1 sent to Rick Brabec in car #140, complet-ing the required six laps in just 4:41:51 at 46 mph.

But he made it to the checkered flag for a nice win, and a finish too. Jennifer Clem-son finished the Freedom 250 in 5:41:49 in ar #132; good enough for the Sixth Place trophy at 37.9 mph.

Linzy had two flats and lost a light somewhere in the night, but still got to the checkers for a win. A good thing too, be-cause the oil pressure went to zero at the finish line.

Eugenio said he "used to race Su-per X, but can't do that anymore", so he teamed up with his brother Steven for their first finish ever in the four wheel variety of dusty times racing.

Despite early pressure from Frenchman Sebastien Loeb and Daniel Elena (Citroen/BFGoodrich Tires) in leg, Gronholm pre-vailed with the fastest and most furious win of the en-ti re championship with stages covered by the leading crews at average speeds of October 2006 l 2 0 kph and counties s 1 ea ps of up to 50 meters between rows of ominously close pine tress. The BP-Ford/BF-Goodrich team's other Finns, Mikko Hirvonen/ Jarmo Lehtinen, joined Marcus and Timo in the top-three to pick up a podium finish on home soil. As the residents of Jyvaskyla woke up to heavy rain on the morning of Leg 1, Marcus Gronholm (Ford/ BFGoodrich Tires) appeared to have the rally practically sewn up already. In the 25km Lankamaa stage alone, he pulled 13 seconds clear of Sebastien Loeb who was running first on the road in extremely wet conditions. At that moment it seemed to be all over, except for the cel-ebrating, since clawing back a single second from Gronholm on the course seemed nearly impossible. Even so, Sebastien Loeb (Citroen/BFGoodrich Tires) succeeded in winning four of the nine stages in Leg 1, and captured the fastest time during Saturday morning's legendary Ouninpohja test. Racing at an average speed of 128kph, the Frenchman put in a per-fect run: not one excessive slide, an ideal line from flag to flag, jumps worthy of the best locals and a continuous bid for optimal traction throughout. Yet at the fin-ish he was only 1.3 seconds quicker than Gronholm! At this point in the rally, Loeb trailed Marcus by 12.4 seconds, practically the same time gap that had split the two former World Rally Champions at the·end of Leg 1, but he had by no means given up all hope of catching his Finnish rival. However, the outcome of the 2006 Rally Finland tipped definitively in the Ford driver's favor on the very next stage. Marcus Gronholm (Ford/ BFGoodrich Tires): "Every-thing was perfect tyre-wise this weekend. I covered prac-tically the entire rally on soft compound g-Force Gravels. The mousse system was a huge help on Saturday when I hit a rock on Ouninpohja and also today (Sunday) towards the end of_ the rally when my front right wheel hit something just off the road. At the sort of speeds we get up to on this rally, the run-flat mousse system is an impor-tant safety feature." Aime Chatard (BFGood-ri ch Tires Rallies Programme Manager): "Our testing here in July proved very valuable because it was carried out in the same con-ditions as those we encoun-tered here this weekend, namely a mixture of rain and sunshine. Rally Finland is without doubt the least hard-wearing round of the year for tyres. On the other hand, the constructions do tend to take a great deal of punishment. We need to pay very careful attention to the sidewalls which have to soak up huge forces as the tyres repeatedly come back to Earth after the event's countless jumps. With air speeds of around 170kph, the lanJings are very heavy. Within a mere hundredth of a second, the tyres must be capable of bearing the Continued on page 46 Page 45

But despite all this, Rally Finland contin-ues to be a true driver's rally ...

Etc BFGoodrich • Tires' Sebastien Loeb Secures His Fifth German Win· in the WRC -BFG Drivers Take the Top Seven Places at Ra//y Deutsch/and -GREENVILLE, S.C. -The two-time World Rally Champion Sebastien Loeb tied the record for the high-est number of WRC wins to-day (26, held jointly by Carlos Sainz) thanks to a personal fifth -win in Ger-many, the fixture that gave him his first world class suc-cess in 2002. The Frenchman's fifth win of 2006 puts him 33 points ahead at the top of the pro-visional drivers' standings, while the one-two finish of Loeb and his Spanish team-mate Dani Sordo (Citroen/ BFGoodrich•) sees Kronos Racing strengthen its lead at the top of the Manufactur-ers' table, 23 points ahead of BP-Ford/BFGoodrich Tires. The Rally Deutschland's route extends from the banks of the Mosel Valley near Trier to the Saarland forests approximately 60 kilometres to the south. It's a region where the weather is notoriously inconsistent at this time of year, making tire choices extremely diffi-cult; a 'lottery' even at times since the stages for which they are selected often start many hours after the cars leave service. Indeed, the second tire call of the opening leg on Friday had a decisive influ-ence on the way the 2006 event unfolded. Despite heavy rain at the Bostalsee service park, the stages were completely dry and forecast-ers wer~ optimistic that the situa.tion would stay that way all afternoon. As a con-sequence, all BFGoodrich Tires' runners opted for the g-Force Profiler 'dry weather' asphalt tire, but in a variety of different com-pounds. Just in case rain did break out again, the three Citroen/BFGoodrich Tires drivers -Loeb, Sordo and Gardemeister -chose the soft option. Meanwhile, in the Ford/BFGoodrich Tires camp, factory drivers Granholm and Hirvonen both chose the medium com-pound ... and it rained. Run-ning with the ideal tires for the conditions, the Citroen trio concluded the day by securing all three places on the overnight podium. The second day started out dry but overcast as ac-tion moved further south and attention focused on the stages of" the infamous Baumholder military ranges which are always highly ag-gressive on tires and ex-tremely slippery in the wet. This time, both Ford/BF-Goodrich drivers made the ideal tire call which enabled Granholm to retrieve 3rd place while Petter Solberg (Subaru) was sidelined with engine failure. However, the gap pulled out by the two Kronos Racing drivers the previous day was far too big_ to give the Finn any hope of PIKES service center Baker, California Celebra~ing 60 YEARS OF SERVICE TO OUR TRAVELING FRIENDS ...

As ex-pected, Loeb contented him-self with controlling from in front until the finish cer-emony by Trier's Porta Negra monument where the Frenchman had the honor of popping the champagne for the fifth time in as many years. Alongside his older team-mate on the podium, Dani Sordo was able to cel-ebrate his own outstanding performance after his first attempt at the German round in a WRC car. Meanwhile, the scrap for third spot between Granholm, Gardemeister and Hirvonen kept specta-tors on their toes all the way to the flag. Citroen/BF-Goodrich Tires privateer Toni Gardemeister suc-ceeded in splitting the two Ford/BFGoodrich Tires drivers but Hirvonen ulti-mately fell back to ninth overall after being delayed by an alternator problem on the run back to Trier. The Finnish driver's misfortunes promoted Austria's Manfred Stohl (Peugeot/BFGoodrich Tires) to fifth place ahead of German youngster Andreas Aigner (sixth, Skoda/BFGood-rich Tires) who was another driver to put in an excellent run this weekend. Also in form was Jan Kopecky (sev-en th) who claimed two fast-est stage times with his pri-vately-entered Skoda/BF-Goodrich Tires in the course of Leg 2. Sebastien Loeb (Citroen/ BFGoodrich Tires) "It was a very difficult rally and the constantly changing conditions made it pretty stressful from start to finish. Getting the different tire calls right was vital, es-pecially for Friday's second loop of stages. The roads were dry but our weather crew couldn't rule out the likelihood of more rain, so I decided to fit soft com-pound g-Force Profilers. It's a tire that gets up to its ideal working temperature very quickly and it gave good grip over all four stages of the group. I felt very confi-dent with it and, thanks to this choice, Dani and I were able to pull out a nice lead over our rivals." Aime Chatard, BFGood-rich T ires' Rally Program Manager " I would like to congratu-late Sebastien and the Kronos Racing team who made the best tire choices this weekend. Ford hadn't tested the new Focus for this event in the wet so their drivers had little to go on during the opening leg. Our range of tires needed to be sufficiently broad to cover all the conditions encoun-tered this weekend and, to further fine-tune them as closely as possible, it was necessary to 're-cut' their patterns on occasions.

Managed by the Bureau of Land Man-agement (BLM), the CCMA has been under attack for several years by anti-access groups seeking to close the popular off-road riding area, home of the AMA-sanc-tioned Quicksilver Enduro Manufactured Bt l§CO and known by enthusiasts throughout the country. The BlueRibbon Coali-tion, a national non-profit recreation group (BRC), spearheaded an effort by motorized recreation inter-ests to intervene int-his case in order to help to protect public access to the CCMA. The suit, filed in Federal District Court in San Jose in November 2004, threatened to eliminate most motorized use of the entire area. The Plaintiffs filed numerous motions seeking immediate judicial imposition of travel restrictions, none of which were granted. "We are pleased at this re-sult. The recreation commu-nity is proud of its strong le-gal defense of the agency's planning process and con-tinued support for active management of the CCMA," noted Paul Turcke, a Boise, Idaho, attorney represent-ing the Salinas Ramblers Motorcycle Club, the Ameri-can Motorcyclist Associa-tion District 36, the Califor-nia Associa-tion of 4 Wheel Drive Clubs, the California Off Road Vehicle Associa-tion, the Off Road Business Association and the BlueRibbon Coalition in the lawsuit. "However, this suc-cess should not trigger com-placency. A number of CCMA issues remain pend-ing, including our Interior Board of Land Appeals chal-lenge to the 'dry season' clo-sure, and future litigation at the CCMA and other California riding areas is, unfortunately, more likely than not," Turcke cautioned. Before and during the lawsuit the Bureau of Land Management has been work-ing on a travel management plan for the area. On Janu-ary 13, 2006, the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) re-Dusty Times

Page 47

leased its Record of Decision restricting vehicle travel in the CCMA to designated routes and areas. Based largely on the issuance of this plan, the Plaintiffs stipulated to dismissal of their suit, which the Court approved on August 3, 2006. Don Amador, western representative for the BlueRibbon Coalition, stares, "I believe that off-roaders should continue to build our partnership with the BLM and help support the agency's effort to have a balanced program. With the distraction of this law-suit removed, the OHV com-munity can even more sharply focus our resources on proactive management of Clear Creek." ■ ■ ■ ■ ■ ■ ■ ■ ■ ■ ■ ■ ■ ■ ■ ■ ■ CALIFORNIA LEAGUE OF OFF-ROAD VOTERS GEAR UP FOR '06 ELECTION SACRAMENTO, CA (August 3, 2006)-The Cali-fornia League of Off-Road Voters (CLORV) is a 501(C) 4 organization formed to educate the off-road voting public about state and local issues that effect their sport. When CLORV was originally formed it was composed of the California Off-Road Ve-Dusty Times hicle Association (CORVA), the San Diego Off-Road Coalition (SDORC), the Off-Road Business Associa-tion (ORBA), the American Motorcyclist Association-District 37 and the Friends of Oceano Dunes (FoOD). With the recent additions of the American Motorcyclist Association National (AMA), the American Mo-torcyclist Association-Dis-trict 36, the California As-sociation of Four Wheel Drive Clubs (CA4WD), The California Nevada Snowmo-bile Association (CNSA) and the American Sand As-sociation (ASA) off-roaders from all over the state now have a united voice with which they can speak to poli-ticians about their specific issues. One of the primary rea-sons CLORV exists is to put out our "Off-Road Voter Guide." Before every elec-tion CLORV sends out ques-tionnaires to candidates to find out where they stand on OHV issues. After evaluating the questionnaires the CLORV Board of Directors chooses which candidates to endorse. One of the goals of this newly expanded CLORV or-ganization is to have more of a presence at off-road events. At these events CLORV would like to edu-cate off-road voters about candidates that support our chosen form of family recre-ation. CLORV also invites local legislators to these ~~~· ~· . --'-,--~---~::= .---~..£6-~ ... --:::r::::: ~1-=-~~ -~ ' ~:-_:.::_.~-~---~~~-. =------=--"=-~-=:~~ :..:;::·--=---==- . =-==-------~ -.. ----~=--------, ,,,_.,_ a.,_,..._.,,.. 1M Name I 11a _,,._ ,_,_, '1 Rlllll 11# ,,,_,,.
