STPR 2014 – The Love of the Challenge!
This past weekend, Tioga County was pumped with adrenaline and a need for speed as drivers and spectators came into Wellsboro for the Susquehannock Trail Performance Rally.
Rallying is a form of auto racing that takes place on public or private roads with modified or specially built road-legal cars. This racing is distinguished by its point-to-point format in which participants and their co-drivers drive between set control points called special stages. Each driver leaves the starting point of each stage at set intervals, and their completion time – from start to finish – for that stage is recorded. The race is won by the driver with the shortest total completion time of all the stages.
Drivers came to Wellsboro from various areas around the world – including places like the UK, Ireland, and even Tioga County! Exposés were held in The Green of downtown Wellsboro on Friday and Saturday morning – giving fans and competitors a chance to meet. The action took place on Friday and Saturday afternoon and evening as the drivers flew through the woods and across the Fair Grounds stages.
Wellsboro Home Page had the pleasure of interviewing local driver Jeremy Keck and co-driver James Quattro. Keck shared with us his determination for finishing the rally. His devotion to his fans was made clear in the Winter Rally earlier this year, as he fought to complete the event even after experiencing damage to his car. Keck also stated he has sponsorship openings available, with many affordable options.
Be sure to check back throughout the week for more rally features – highlighting a sport filled with determination, camaraderie and a love of the challenge.
