Video: Why Sno*Drift Rally is an underdog’s dream

The ARA National season opener – the only snow rally of the season – tests Open class drivers like no other rally

The countdown has started. A new season of American Rally Association action is almost upon us, and as ever, it all begins with the daunting Sno*Drift Rally in Michigan state.

The 2021 rally may have moved back from January to February and now only consist of one day, but that doesn’t make this event any less of a challenge. Winning the Sno*Drift always comes with added respect because of the onslaught competitors face out there on the stages.

As Colin Clark explains, there’s one vital rule which handicaps the top-level Open class cars and gives the slower, heavier cars a chance to cause an upset.

Keep an eye on DirtFish this week as we bring you exclusive ARA content looking ahead to this year’s season-opener, kicking off with a look at all the factors that make Sno*Drift Rally so special.
