Tour de Forest

Tour de Forest Rally was a newly revived event in 2018. Last run in 1983, the rally represents an exciting new challenge for ARA competitors, placing teams on stage roads unseen in rally competition for thirty-five years. For 2019, the Tour de Forest Rally will return to the tree-covered roads south of Seattle positioned as the final event of the ARA National Series, the potential Championship deciding round.

Started in 1978 by the Rainier Auto Sports Club, Tour de Forest quickly grew to National prominence. Over the next five years, Tour de Forest saw talented competitors challenge each other for national championships. The event was a highly-contested battleground between legendary rally drivers Rod Millen and John Buffum. Each took two wins on the Olympic National Forest stage roads over a four year fight. 30 years later, ARA drivers now have the opportunity to add to that tradition of close fights and talented on the edge driving.
