Black Box rally team completed the inaugural Empire State Performance Rally(ESPR) in Rock Hill, NY as the “best-placed stock vehicle”, finishing 6th overall. The rally covered over 230 miles of roads through the city of Rock Hill, NY, about 80 minutes from New York City.
ESPR is the only national tarmac rally in the United States, a rarity since almost all other US rallies take place on gravel. The event was fast, with rally drivers getting up to triple digit speeds frequently, and averaging over 80mph throughout the event.
Thanks to all the rally organizers and volunteers for making this event possible!
