Claire tries her hand at rally racing

 

April 9th, 2014 (Eagle River, WI) // Last week over spring break I had the opportunity to try my racing skills doing something I’ve never done before, racing in the dirt, (well, besides racing our Ford Fiesta around our woods by our house). I attended the Dirtfish Rally Race Car School in Seattle, WA.  Jimmy Johnson and Tony Stewart swear the best drivers come from Dirt Racing.  So I wanted to give it a try.

It was the 3 Day Ultimate Rally Experience.  It taught me loose car control, the understanding of weight transfer, throttle management, adapting to over steer and understeer, adapting to different surfaces, inducing and correcting slides, try to do all these things while driving the car through the woods with solid objects, just like an actual rally stage during a race.  I have a great appreciation how tough a Rally Race would actually be now.
