THE COURSE

12 Stages – CRS Coefficient 3 – PRC Single Round Event

The Gorman Ridge Rally is considered one of the toughest, meanest events in the Western U.S. To win here, you have to do more than just drive fast, you have to survive.

The route is all dirt road surfaces, which are generally smooth and hard packed with occasional rough or sandy spots. There are always a fair number of washouts and waterbars.

Often tight and technical, the event’s 12 stages derive their CRS coefficient 3 status from CRS’ seat time regulations, rather than mileage. Perfect for SxS competitors, it would not be surprising to see SxS competitors trading times with the fastest rally cars.
