  • Rally racing returns to Aberdeen This Weekend

    ABERDEEN, Wash. – The 22nd annual Doo Wop Rally brings 32 of the top west coast rally teams to southwest Washington for a weekend of racing, March 6 and 7. Starting from Aberdeen the rally runs in the Grays Harbor area on Saturday and shifts to Pacific County on Sunday.

    Watching a rally isn’t like attending other spectator sports. There are no grand stands or concessions, but there’s also no admission charge. Rally takes place rain or shine and there’s no stopping for potholes! Rally is different from other racing. First, there’s no track. Rally racing takes place on “special stages” (usually unpaved forest roads) that have been closed to traffic. This year spectators can watch the action on stages near Cosmopolis, Montesano, Brooklyn and South Bend. Visit the Doo Wop Web site for spectator directions and more information:

    The cars will look familiar; they’re street legal Subarus, Toyotas, Hondas,VWs and similar small sedans. They’ve all been specially prepared for safety. Take a look inside a rally car and you’ll find a web of steel tubes that make the car stronger and protect the crew.
