Rhode Island woman owned motorsport company makes 3,000 mile trek to compete in 2012 Olympus Rally in Washington, final stop of the 2012 Rally America National Series
I am really looking forward to this rally” said the Nuts n More supported TRS Rally Team driver. “Obviously I have another new co-driver, so hopefully we will begin to understand each other from the start and get to understand the flow of the rally. I am looking forward to seeing how everything works out. We have one day of pre race event reconnaissance where we will review the course and our internal communications, which I believe will be very positive and we will be fully prepared going into the rally.”
Tracey continued: “It will be interesting to see what the weather does. The fires in the area have seriously affected the schedule of the event with us now having early morning and late night driving. Considering I have never driven this event at this time of year before, drier should mean faster but all depends on the dust raised by previous cars.
Dillon meanwhile, is no stranger to the Rally America series both as a driver and navigator in the past.
The 2012 Olympus Rally will be situated just northwest of Olympia, Washington’s State capitol, on some of the same roads run in the World Rally Championship events. The event will also be much closer to Seattle making it easier for fans to attend the event. “This is huge for the Olympus Rally,” said Steve McQuaid, Olympus Rally Chairman, “The roads are of a higher quality and more technical than what we have been using. It has the perfect roads for a rally race.”
