About this event
Flamethrower RoadRally 2024 is sponsored by Red Hen Racing on YouTube.
The Flamethrower Rally is a Regularity Rally run in the Minnesota part of the Driftless area. The course takes advantage of the elevation changes, natural twisty roads, and challenging winter conditions in the valleys flowing into the Mississippi River. The 2024 event will include two *NEW* special "skills course" regularity stages to exercise driving precision and maneuverability around cones on a closed course.
Each car must include two people: a driver and a navigator. No other passengers are allowed. If your navigator is a minor a special release is required.
No special equipment is required. For the most fun, we recommend you download the Rabbit Rally 2.0 app to use our interactive digital roadbook and GPS timing. Rabbit Rally 2.0 offers an interactive digital roadbook and does all calculations for you so that you always know if you are on time. Time Allowances are now integrated directly into Rabbit for easier operation.
Timing is done via independent GPS boxes mounted on your windows.
