Just saw Entrepre-neer's chart,,, using that data, i figured the target average miles per hour for the SS's for section 1 @ 33mph, section 2 @ 50MPH, section 3 @48MPH, section 4@ 32MPH,,,, my math could be wrong could anyone verify or give your opinion on experience... basically I just want to know what speeds in special stages are the norm... THanks in advance.

Its a relative concept. Everyone is going as fast as they possibly can before crashing. For some, thats 30mph. For some thats 60. Just do your best
And dont crash

Yep, for sure... i'm thinking more about the mental aspect, navigation, bike set up, prep, etc... what bugs to work out of the whole program.

Definitely getting more pumped thinking about it! Plus, double the stage miles as RSB... holy crapola

Unfortunately. I have been priced out. After my nap at SB, my rally budget can't handle a 480$ entrance fee. Bummer

That sux. I will be taking advantage of the pay over time option. That helps me out a bunch.

Your math may be correct but not sure if you get the format. The specials are about running as fast as you can, not maintaining an average speed. The miles/time shown in the stage schedule relates to maximum time allotted for the stage.

As Stagehand mentioned it's about how comfortable you are going fast. I have not done RWV yet but every RallyMoto event I have participated in the top riders have had race stage speed averages over 60 mph, top speeds in the 100+ range.

Hey there BC61, think I understand, the SS pin it (at own level) and transit, just get to next location. Regarding the speeds I mentioned, since I have ZERO experience in Rally, just wanted to have some clue as to what speeds are but as mentioned it varies among riders,,, makes sense (I'll ride at my comfort level)... Thanks for info. Hopefully able to participate at WV rally.

Wait wait wait. Are you the one that posted all the awesome vids from last year with your war cries under your helmet??? You've GOT to do the rally again!! I thought it was so freaking awesome hearing that freedom you were feeling when I watched those a few months back.

I promise however slow you are, you're not as slow as me. It's a great event in a great area, put on by great people. It'll be my first time as well.

As Bill said, going faster or slower than the target time only matters on transit.

I'm not sure if max speed was above the mid 90s at WV last year due to tighter roads.

All sorts of graphs from previous year's results.

We are planning on running it this year in the historic Saab. Its a bit of a bummer because they moved the Maine rally to the same weekend...otherwise we could have run both.

Entry fee for the car is just 3 easy payments of $400 :)

23 mile night stage! This should be interesting.

This was my first rallymoto last year, and everyone was really helpful when I hadn't a clue what I was doing
