  • Rally Moab OCT 19-20, 2013!!!

    Utah Rally Group is hosting a rally cross in Moab, Utah USA September 7-8, 2013!!

    All makes, models welcome! Its the first event to be held in/around Moab (with more to come), so its pretty grass-roots and low key but Come one come all!

    On-site camping will be offered with full services and lodging available in Moab (about 20 minutes south of the event location).
    Check-in with URG for info and registration.

    For more information check out or visit the FB page at

    Moab attracts a hundreds of thousands of tourists every year, most visiting Arches and Canyonlands National Parks. The natural and beautiful landscape also attracts a high concentration of outdoor recreation opportunities in stunning natural settings; activities included (but not limited to) the following:
    4x4 Multi-day camping trips in Canyonlands National Park on the White Rim Road, and Extreme 4x4 at Sand Flats Recreation Area (home of the famous Slickrock Bike Trail), among seemingly limitless other areas
    Whitewater rafting and kayaking on the Colorado River. The area's most famous sections of the Colorado are West Water Canyon which is upstream from Moab and Cataract Canyon in Canyonlands National Park which is downstream.
    Canoe trips on the Green River
    Mountain biking Hundreds of miles of trails easily accessible trails
    Road biking The annual Skinny Tire Festival is held in Moab, including a century ride
    Rock climbing A true international destination for climbers
    BASE jumping Legal in many areas near Moab
    Hiking and backpacking Canyonlands National Park, Arches National Park, and thousands of square miles of BLM and national forest lands surround Moab.
    Slacklining/highlining World record for long highlines was performed here (a new slackline park has just been installed)

    Stay tuned, I'm also working on coordinating a Subaru get together with [semi-]organized drives/trails and info on things to do, places to see and go. It may overlap with this RallyX weekend. . .

      (Per URG)
      Here are the details everyone. We are also playing with the idea of a night rallycross on Saturday. :-)

      The URG (Utah Rally Group) is proud to present the Utah Region RallyCross held north of the Moab area. Registration and tech will be open from 8:00am to 9:30am, the driver's meeting will be at 9:45am, with first car running at 10:00am. The event usually goes until mid to late afternoon, with each competitor being given at least six runs.
      All competitors must have and show a current valid drivers license(their own), and all cars (fixed-roof production based, including convertibles with a factory hardtop att...ached and targa or t-top types with factory panel(s) in place) must be able to pass technical inspection. Helmets are required and must meet Snell 2000(SA2000, M2000, or K2000) or newer labeled helmets are approved for use. For those without a proper helmet, loaner helmets are available.

      Entry fees are as follows:
      1 day non SCCA member - 60
      2 day non SCCA member - 90

      1 day SCCA member - 40
      2 day SCCA member - 70

      Directions to the area:
      From I-70 head south toward Moab on 191 approximately 8 miles and take a left onto Valley City Rd.
      3852'27.20" N
      10947'57.92" W

      Camping will be available on site for $10 a car
      The only services on site will be a port-a-potty
      Green River has hotels available at slightly lower rates than Moab. Both are about 25 miles away.

        Here are a couple Google Earth images of the location.
        Directions from I-70 @ hwy 191:
        Head south to Valley City Rd (first major left from hwy 191). It's about 8 miles south of I-70 and you'll cross over the RR tracks when you get on Valley City Rd. This is a compacted improved county road (there is some potash mining exploration going on out there so it's a good road for the mining traffic). From there you take the first veer to the right onto a two-track and follow that to the site. URG may stage at this turn off of Valley City Road.

        specifics from the Valley City Hwy 191 intersection.

              I'm looking for some quick advice on some lights, easy to install and use. I don't have much spare battery power as I'm running a 'heavy duty' lawnmower battery.

                  October 19th is a full moon!! Hello night rally!

                    Easiest install is wire from battery through switch to lights mounted on bumper (not bumper skin, but if mounted on skin run ground to real metal ground), ground to mounting bolt.
                    Hell you could even run the switch in the engine bay to keep is simple and short.
                    There are infanite variables in those steps, but go simple for easy and function then once it's in work out the details for fine tuning.

                    Any 55W-100W "off road" light would pass. Driving lights project long distance (fine in stage) but for a rally cross (like if we do a night run), you'd want a fog pettern but probably white.
                    If you go bigger wattage maybe a higher amp generator or just get a real car battery, yo!
