2024 World Rally Championship Might Get An American Leg

The WRC event would come to the counties of Hamilton, Bradley, and Polk. A demonstration rally, planned for April 7-8, would likely take place somewhere here and, if successful, would open the door for an official test race sometime in September. This event would be based in Chattanooga, but most races would take place on the gravel roads of the Cherokee National Forest and the Ocoee River region in Polk County.

“The WRC has been looking to get back to the US, and we’ve been working with them for the past year and a half,” confirmed White.

The chief sports officer for the Chattanooga Tourism Co., Tim Morgan, has been blown away by the interest that rally racing attracts elsewhere: “There is a lot pent-up for an international rally event in the United States, and we know these events draw people from all over the globe. There is a significant interest and demand for this type of adventure race that I never knew about until we started looking into this. It’s amazing.”
