The Ojibwe Forests Rally returns to the 2013 Rally America National Championship schedule as the sixth round of the seven-event Series. Drivers have often used this destination event to hone their skills due to the flowing roads that twist through the picturesque lakes that dot the landscape and the thick cedar trees. Without a doubt, the landscape will conjure images of the legend of Paul Bunyan and his blue ox as cars race on the dirt logging roads.

The roads at Ojibwe are fast and smooth, and drivers often cite this rally as one of their favorite races- although the roads are demanding, they are also extremely fun to navigate. Spectacular summer weather means that this rally is a favorite for spectators too! However, Ojibwe’s roads are also marked by soft, sandy spots, which can create trouble for rally teams, as sand can slow cars down and make it difficult to make up for time lost. This means that co-drivers need to be especially accurate with their instructions, as many a top podium spot has been lost to the sand.
