About this event
Green Heck is an all-night regularity (TSD) rally run on the twisty, technical, and hilly forest roads north of Park Rapids, MN. Honoring the long history of stage rally in the area, this event sends you down some of the same stage roads used by John Buffum, Rod Millen, and Doug Shepherd in the Group B era. Battle the terrain as well as your own endurance as you drive toward the sunrise.
This is a "Save The Date" posting. The posting will be updated with further information in the spring. We have secured a recce exemption from ARA for Ojibwe Forests Rally competitors.
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. You do NOT need to do an odometer calibration for G (GPS) class, but one will be available if you choose to use a wheel-driven odometer. 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.
Scoring is done via independent GPS boxes mounted on your windows.

A note on road conditions and vehicle choice.
Forest roads can be rough and unpredictable, but we have found these roads to be generally smooth and without obstructions. Significant hazards will be called out in the roadbook as Cautions. Low clearance vehicles are not recommended. Since this rally is run in remote forests at night, we do recommend equipping your vehicle with ample forward lighting and a recovery point on the front and rear of the vehicle. Underbody protection is never a bad idea, but will not be necessary to safely complete this rally.
Let's be good stewards of the forest and the community. The rally will be run below the speed limit with street cars.
Organized by Land Of Lakes region, Sports Car Club of America.
