RALLY COLORADO 2022 featured Rally Cars tackling over 113 miles of twisting dirt stage road divided into 11 stages. That averages to just over 10 miles per stage, emphasizing the rally’s endurance challenge. The 2022 event will feature 257 total miles. Rugged mountains, vast plains, deep canyons, and high mesas make up the geographically diverse region.
Even altitude takes its toll. Rangely sits 5,300ft above sea level. In naturally aspirated vehicles, that elevation will result in a 15-20% power loss. Adaptability, skill, and planning will make all the difference in each contestant’s success.
Rally Colorado also has greater visibility for enthusiasts who want to be there on race day. A lack of trees in the high desert allows for terrific sight-lines and uninterrupted views of the surrounding scenery for spectators and competitors alike.
All or part of this operation is conducted on Public Lands under special permit from the U.S. Bureau of Land Management.
Anyone interested in spectating should consider volunteering as you would have the best and only seats in the house to see and experience the race first hand. Visit the volunteer link to learn more about the different roles available.
All participants must be either ARA licensed (competitors, their crew members, media, officials) or registered on the ARA web site working as a volunteer.
