In any case, it is looking like i'm going to make this happen! Just need to sort out a couple of things and get my head around a 18 hour one way drive for a day of motorally... that makes perfect sense, right?
Early entry is from March 1st thru April 1st. There is still time...

We also are working to allow supeer cheep camping at the Luce Co. Fairgrounds again (same location as service and the super special stage). No hook-ups or showers though. If it follows suit, as last year, no reservations required, to set-up camp there, just the donation to the fairgrounds when you arrive. More details soon on this opportunity.

There are also DNR and National forrest camp sites around, but those will be rustic, with minimal facilities.

First vehicle out is actually at 9:00am. But yes, lots of daylight in June. Still plan to run in the dark though, on the last leg. This is the U.P. Home of real rally...

The super special stage? that sounds fun!

Camping at service sounds cool, as long as you guys don't mind if I don't shower maybe I can find a lake, or car wash or something.

Maybe it'll rain the whole weekend :holdyourtongueknave

After briefly looking at the general guidlines specifically to registration I have a question or three.

I would like to register early but have no idea what bike I will be on in June. Can that info along with crew etc be filled in at a later date?

iirc classes were, Heavy, Dakar, Medium and light.

If I still have my 640A what is that considered? Two wheel drive 450?

Sorry if this is covered somewhere else on the internets. If so, post linky plz. I know there's an FAQ...?

No problem with not having all of your informtion available when you first register. The neat little traffic lights will keep track of the information you still need to fill in later. I was still putting info in the week prior to SB.

Now, for your last question...........

Ahh, my mistake. My eyes saw the "super special" at 12:00 and guessed that was the start.

Love the idea of doing a super special. Always good to have an opportunity for fans to get a nice view of some racing.

Camping at the Service area is a big win for myself, now we're talking!

Does this mean we have to have this $250.00 no motion detector as indicated in the rules? Or is this more a twilight stage? The reason I ask is this is a lot of money for something with limited uses.

You don't need a $250 no motion detector. Just get a $20 flashing bicycle light from wally world and a reflective vest/tape/sash for the night stages.
