The NEFR organizers are committed to making the 2012 event the best event possible for competitors and workers alike. Some of the new items for NEFR 2012 include:
- Completely new roads have been added for Saturday’s rally
- A “Rally Village” situated at Sunday River’s South Ridge base lodge is being organized where vendors and exhibitors will be set-up and that will be adjacent to two Parc Exposes,
- The DMack 2WD Challenge has been added as an NEFR-specific event (replacing the MaxAttack! event)
- A raffle of great prizes is being organized to show our appreciation to the many workers who help make the rally possible.
In addition to the famous polo shirts the workers receive this year (make sure you include your shirt size when signing up!!), they’ll also have a chance to win many great prizes. While all of the prizes are still being considered, some of them include: a ride with David Higgins from the Subaru Rally Team USA, Rockstar Energy goodies, Subaru Rally Team USA gear, gift certificates, a 1-day Ford Fiesta Rally Experience at Team O’Neil Rally School as well as a worker rallycross with some free training at the school, and more. As prizes get confirmed, we’ll build our list and be sure to share it with you. Make sure you sign up early as many of these prizes will be awarded before the rally; as such, walk-ins won’t be eligible for many of them.
If you haven’t signed up yet to volunteer, here is the link to the Volunteer Sign-Up Form. Never volunteered before and not sure what you can do to help? No worries – just let us know what days you’re available and let us know in the notes that you’re open to working where help is needed, noting anything that we might need to keep in mind when assigning you to a team.
Thank YOU for helping us make 2012 the best rally ever!
