Whats the quality of the roads like? I'm just debating on which vehicle to bring, whether it be the Truck or the new Fiesta ST. Last event I would have definitely been sour if i had driven anything nice.

The final route check will be this weekend. I am guessing at 75-80 % pavement.
One road that is ready to be paved has about 30 pylons marking the potholes. It looks like a slalom course.
Yesterday we passed a grader smoothing out the gravel road we were on.
I will have an update on the first of the week.

We did the final run through last weekend.
Most of the gravel roads were freshly graded and smoother than one or two of the paved sections.
This is an entry level rally for novice crews. The instructions are straight forward. No tricks. It is quite long at 151.6 km. We will give a short rally school explaining what you will see and what to look for.
You will not follow the exact same course as the experienced crews but the views of the valley will be the same.
Experienced crews will follow a more challenging set of instructions, but I do not expect any of them to get lost as they follow the 183.0 km route. One short road on the experienced route has seen a bit of washout. It is passable at the speed we have suggested.
Checkpointers will get a set of instructions with a map, a grid mark, and a picture of the location.
Checkpointers are welcome and invited to share in the lunch at the finish.
Charlotte has a small meal in mind for the finish included in the entry and free to checkpointers.
I will have the route checked this week and will print the instruction booklets after I know how many are coming.
Please let Charlotte know by Thursday if you are planning to enter Experienced or Novice or would like to checkpoint.
We will allow late entries but the instructions have to be made before the event and the food ordered.
I hope to see you all at the start and finish of the Rally
