    I think the "code" is "Sonora Rally", as listed on the website. Darren and Erin would know better since they are the ones handling that. Same deal with the parking, ask Darren. All of the hotel options are different places than past years.

    BTW, dogfart team is entered again, as is the navigator (mike's) mom/dad in Safari, and another Predator buggy.

    Scott, many thanks and please don't take my above comment the wrong way. In hindsight it seems out of line and I regret making it on a public forum as I don't have all the inside data:(. Please accept my apologies. Dogfart and Shirley especially - you guys rocked it regardless - and you didn't make any big mistakes - very clean race - that's key in rally raid. I do wish I knew what transpired in scoring though....I expect it had to do with dropping 100% of the day 1 penalties due to some scoring equipment failure....

    It sounds like the competition is going to be hot this year - TT's against buggies against KOH cars!!!!

    My money is on the Jergensens. If they can keep the wheels on the ground they have the speed, navigation, guts and experience to win big. I've been wondering how their car held up following last years challenges.

    Anyway, I'm looking forward to helping out this year. We will know soon.

    Thanks Sonora Rally Organization!

    William

    Darren, a mass start might be possible on the day we cross Daniel's southern property, before reaching Bernie's place. Would be a very cool helicopter shot for bike start and later car start! Though it might get a bit chaotic where it funnels down 2 miles later. The lead car navigator would be in a panic as the nav gets tricky where the course narrows! None of the other starts have a wide enough area.

    The Sonora Rally navigation school this weekend will take participants through a variety of desert terrain, and a variety of roadbook navigation challenges, giving them a leg up when the rally begins in March in this same region. Here's a sample of what they are in for out in the dunes!
