PR: Rallynotes New Livery Revealed at Prescott Rally!

RACING THIS WEEKEND!
RALLYNOTES NEW LIVERY REVEALED AT PRESCOTT RALLY!

Since shaking down the car at North Nevada, the rallynotes.com graphics package and body work have been applied. The cute Dodge Neon is transforming into an SRT-4 beast! Driver Kristopher Marciniak talks about the new livery: “One thing that’s always exciting is when the rally car finally matches the logo design at the top of our website. That rally car logo is a sort of talisman for me in that I envision what the rally car will one day become and then work towards it.” The cars silver and red paint scheme was done by Danny’s Auto Body in Long Beach; Seibon Carbon hood; Vinyl by Streetwise Motorsports.

Set in one of the most iconic landscapes in the Southwest, The 25th annual Prescott Rally travels through red rock canyons for miles on winding dirt roads. These roads are considered to be some of the best rally stages in the country. The rallynotes.com team fell in love with the area in 2005 and have been back every year to race or volunteer. This weekend (September 28-29) will mark their 5th year of competition at this event. The team is really looking forward to it!

The competition in the USRC Open 2WD class has 10 entries vying for the win for the final round of the championship. In the regional CRS class, a win at Prescott could mean a podium finish in the California Rally Series CRS-2 class championship. After setting 3rd fastest stage times at North Nevada, the goal is to place well with the new car. “I’d like to do exactly what we did at NNR without getting stuck on a berm for 20 minutes. We love Prescott and we’re going to have fun!” said co-driver Christine Marciniak.

Live updates from this weekend will be on the rallynotes.com tumblelog and APRS rally car tracking will be active starting Thursday! The Prescott Rally website is http://www.prescottrally.com

That is awesome! She really came together great :thumbup:

And you know the door moldings will keep the sides pristine. Add a SRT wing and the car will be indestructible :lol:

Good luck to you!
If I could just figure out how to meld the Outback and the Neon into one car...

Thanks guys!

Keeping the side molding was a mistake - but there is absolutely nothing behind the sheet metal so it probably keeps it from denting super easily... At least that's my excuse now. :roll:

I also agree on the wing, but I never sourced an SRT4 one because I'm planning on an adjustable custom one. I have argued about wings on FWD cars in the past, but once you get these going @ 100MPH on dirt - it's all about stability and keeping the rear wheels on the ground... and behind you. :D

Well where a wing is actually functional, is another matter, than for purely cosmetic reasons. :thumbup:

At 100 plus, and you are winning, it could look like Joan Rivers, and you wouldn't care. Well maybe you would drive faster trying to get away from it. :lol:

I don't expect you to watch the whole stage, and I'm working on highlights, but twisty scary start, @7:00min is fast stuff, @11:00 is junction, @19:00 ballz out to the finish! 20.1 mile twisty stage in 20:35
