I'm doing a school project about a guy who was real involved in the GA off-road racing and obviously, there's little on the Internet for it. I heard it's been mentioned in various issues of Dusty Times, does anyone know where I might can find an archive or something of the magazine to be able to look Through? Or any other info on GORRA?

If you could come up with a specific time frame you' probably get some forum members to look in their back issues. There's was also the Off Road America publication that covered a races in the Mid-West and South East that may have information.

There was a guy from that area that was in the RC car market, I think Bolink was the brand name, did some racing back there and also helped sponsor Tracy's Party Ice way back when. Can't remember his name but if this sounds familiar I can ask Tracy. Thinking his first name was Bob.

I'm not positive on the dates but I know it's somewhere late 70s-early 80s

IIRC, DUSTY TIMES began publication in 1983. Off Road Action News and Off Road Advertiser were among the magazines that preceded it.

I may be able to help you? I raced in the GORRA series a few years, and so did my dad. I knew a lot of the racers for many different years of racing around Georgia, and the neighboring states. I have some of our old newsletters stuck away somewhere, I may have to dig them out...

Hot VWs had coverage of GORRA stuff from the late 1980s, but I don't remember them saying the promoters name. Can you narrow the search parameters a little?
