Arvon Tower Stage

My favorite special stage from the 2011 Lake Superior Performance Rally this past weekend was Arvon Tower in the Huron Mountains.  It starts out with righthander into a downhill section full of multiple jumps, a lot like a Rally Finland stage.  Here's some in-car from a Grp 2 Golf that rolled on one of the jumps.  Too bad there is no way to get a sense for the elevation changes, crests and speed on 2-dimensional videos.  This really isn't even close to what it's actually like to run the stage ....

Since you're prohibited from continuing in the rally with a smashed windshield, these guys found somebody with a windshield for a Mitsubishi at the next service stop and duct taped to the car. I believe they finished the rally.
