I’ll be co-driving for another team this weekend for Rally West Virginia (as early reconnaissance for our participation some day in the second round of Max-Attack). As a test for more future Demon Rally participation, I’ve signed up for Twitter and will attempt to broadcast updates for the team I’m working for out there. Just sign up to follow demonrally on Twitter (or watch via the web here) to see how the service might look for our team in the future!

Quiet summer?

Yes, it’s been quiet around the Demon Rally camp, but changes are on the way! To help prepare for our return to stage rally next March, I’ve converted all the videos to flash files so that more people can watch them without downloading extra software. They’re also all streaming videos that way, so you don’t have to wait forever for a large file to download if you have a slow connection. Check them out and let us know what you think.

Also, we’re still offering many of the parts for sale from the Rabbit. It is officially in small pieces now and headed to the scrapper. Feel free to pour an adult beverage out for our dead homie. Things are in the works for a new car, look for information about that soon. Also, merchandising (stickers an t-shirts) may become a real possibility if you’re looking for a way to support the team. Stay tuned!

support the new car effort!
