Day one of the New England Forest Rally had many things going for it. First on most peoples’ mind was the fact that Ken Block would be back this year after a couple year hiatus. Secondly was, will David Higgins be able to defend his title? On top of all that it’s the 25th running of the New England Forest Rally with some old stages that people and drivers haven’t seen in years.
The competitors list included over 60 entries at the start of the rally. I’m not sure if people were dialing up their intensity this year or if the stages were particularly brutal, but about 1/3 of the entry field were DNF by the end of the day one. Some unable to return for the next day.
Below you will find photos from day one. Let me know which ones are your favorite and be on the look out for a recap of Day two with more photos.
