The Saab Rally Team here in the North East, are at it again, this time as an entry to the New England Forest Rally here in Maine this Friday, July 17th in Bethel, Maine near Sunday River Ski resort.

Driver Luke Sorenson and co-driver Geoff Clark will be taking their 1975 Saab 99 rally car that we’ve seen participate in numerous rallies here in the North East region of the United States over the years.

The last time I was at the New England Forest Rally, formerly called the Maine Forest Rally, was in 2001 when I was with the New England Saab Association. At that time there four participants in Saabs! Here here for Luke & Geoff this year for keeping the Saab rally spirit alive in the North East which began back in 1957 with the Great American Mountain Rally.
