// Venue

Winter conditions in Michigan are hard to predict, but some combination of fresh snow and glazed ice can always be expected. Current rules restrict rally cars from using studded ice tires which makes finding traction extremely difficult for the drivers. If there has been good snowfall in the days leading up to the rally expect to see large snowbanks lining the roads. These snowbanks can be a help and a hazard for drivers as they try to stay on the road. Dress for warmth and don’t forget to bring your snowmobile!
