kylesvt720 I've been going up to Houghton now for about 5 years, and love it. In about 12 months, I'm going to be buying a truck to use as a daily driver, (looking at the Sport Trac Adrenalin). At that time I'm going to start converting my 2003 SVT EAP into a Rally Car. I have about 200 acres of land and will be setting up a practice course to improve my drifting skills. (My current test dummy is a 97' sunfire GT, 5spd.) Anyone in the Michigan area looking for a place to practice, let me know!!

Thanks geezer. I'll have to look into that.

Geezer Sorry guys...there were no special stages (the all out speed stages) even close to 40 miles. The longest special stage was stage 6 (of 17 total) and took 13.15 minutes. At a 60 mph +/- avg (yes some were a little faster) that's only 13 to 14 miles in length. Heck the total accumulative winning time was 1 hr 44 min. ( by Ken Block). There were 12 stages that took less than seven minutes each. I think your confusing transit stages with special stages.


See attached for both special and transit stage lengths at this years event longest special stage was actually 17 miles and the longest transit was over 39 miles:
