Bristol Forests Rally

The Bristol Forests Rally became part of the American Rally Association (ARA) East Regional Championship in 2022. The change comes as the rally looks to grow after a successful first year in 2021. The rally will have a new look in 2022 with a new special stage, reconfigurations of old stages, and a planned Parc Expose in downtown Johnson City, Tenn. Seamus Burke and Martin Brady won the 2021 Bristol Forests Rally with a total time of 1:39.21 over 69 competitive stage miles (an average speed of 41.8 mph) showing off the technical aspect of the roads. This year mileage has increased, so an even tougher challenge awaits teams in East Tennessee.
