Welcome to the Magnum Opus Rally 2013 Website:
We are very excited to once again bring back an historic event to Michigan after many years of absence - Magnum Opus. First run in Marquette, then moved to Munising, and now headquartered in Newberry, the new Magnum Opus will run on June 22nd, 2013. Encompassing 12 stages, day & night, and over 50 stage miles. Per last year the event will be ‘route book only, no recce’. Nothing fancy, just a good old school, single day rally in da U.P., eh?
The event will feature something very special: a re-run of one of the stages from the infamous 1974 World Rally Championship Press On Regardless! Competitors will trace the route of such legends as Sandro Munari in the Lancia Stratos and Marku Alen in the Fiat 124 Abarth! The other stages are all new and never previously rallied.
Last years teams and volunteers provided us helpful tips and comments and we have made some changes based on those recommendations. More technical stages and less speed have been taken into account and more variety. Bill Westrick ( Rally Master ) will be releasing details as we get closer to the event date.
The website will be updated with a new forum and we encourage everyone to bookmark it as we will be releasing details regarding lodging and other news.
The community of Newberry encourages you to join us once again in Michigan’s Eastern Upper Peninsula for this historic rally and are looking forward to providing you with some fantastic racing and hospitality. There will be a dinner and awards banquet for workers and competitors immediately following the conclusion of the rally. Details will be forthcoming . We are looking forward to providing competitors, workers, and spectators with a fun, fast event.
The Magnum Opus staff and the community of Newberry look forward to serving you in 2013.
