The North East Motor Sports Museum, located at 922 NH Route 106 in Loudon, NH, on the grounds of New Hampshire Motor Speedway, is pleased to announce its first-ever Rally Car exhibit. Sponsored by Vermont SportsCar / Subaru Motorsports Team USA from Milton, VT and the Team O’Neil Rally School in Dalton, NH, the 2-car Rally Car display will be available for viewing at the North East Motor Sports Museum through the end of October 2019.

The Rally Car exhibit features the 2006 Subaru WRX STI rally car driven by X-Games legend and multi-time United States Rally Champion Travis Pastrana from Annapolis, MD.

This very Subaru was driven by Pastrana at the 2006 X Games in Los Angeles, CA where he beat former World Rally Champion Colin McRae, for the X Games Gold Medal in the first-ever rally competition in X Games history.

Also on display is a 2004 Ford Focus which represents a rally car or rallycross car that could be seen in rally competition both here in the United States or around the globe as part of World Rally Championship (WRC) competition. 

Prepared by the Team O’Neil Rally School in Dalton, NH as an educational tool, the rally car has been equipped with a full roll cage, racing seats, a 5-point safety harness and other rally-specific safety and performance upgrades.

In support of the Museum’s first-ever Rally Car exhibit, a presentation on the History of Rally will be presented by multi-time US National Production Class Rally Champion and  founder of the Team O’Neil Rally School, Tim O’Neil from Whitefield, NH.

Taking place at the North East Motor Sports Museum on Sunday afternoon, August 11th, 2019 from 1:00pm to 3:30pm, O’Neil will discuss the history of Rally, the various types of rally competition, how to get involved in the sport as a spectator, volunteer or competitor and he’ll also conduct a detailed overview and walk-around of a current rally car.

Tickets for the History of Rally presentation by Tim O’Neil on  August 11th will be $10.00 for Museum members and $15.00 for non-members. Tickets are limited and can be purchased online here or at the museum.
