Ojibwe Forests Rally back on the 2013 Schedule
By: Subaru - March 16, 2013
The 2013 Rally America National Championship has been expanded to once again include the Ojibwe Forests Rally based in Detroit Lakes, Minnesota. Only three and a half hours north of Minneapolis in the 10,000 Lakes Region of the state. The beautiful surroundings and pleasant summer weather makes for a fun and exciting event for racers, volunteers and spectators alike. The Ojibwe Forests Rally is unique in that it features more night stages than many of the US rallys. First hearing the crackle of the charging rally cars in the distance followed by the intense HID driving lights piercing through the north woods darkness is quite an experience! The event takes place August 23-24, 2013.

Block and his co-driver, Alex Gelsomino, put in an impressive drive in the lower-specification SP class car, running a majority of the rally in 3rd Overall and winning three stages outright...

By: Subaru - August 29, 2009
