As of Monday, Feb. 13, 14 competitive teams have entered the 2017 Waste Management Winter RallySprint. Teams can register from 8-10 a.m. this Saturday, Feb. 18, the day of the event at rally headquarters, the Tioga County Fairgrounds at Whitneyville.

The competition will begin at 11 a.m. this Saturday, Feb. 18 with rally cars displayed on Pearl Street at The Green, a park located in the heart of downtown Wellsboro. That will give fans an opportunity to get up close to see the cars and talk to the drivers and co-drivers.

The goal of each team is to finish the competition stages in the fastest time. Modifications to the rally cars are based on the class they enter. All have to be street legal to allow them to get to the stage using public roads.

Admission to the spectator area at 782 Antrim Road in Duncan Township is $5 per person. It will open at 10 a.m. this Saturday. Here fans will see the cars at speed negotiating the course. The spectator area is near the service area giving fans another opportunity to see the drivers, crews and cars up close. A food vendor and portable bathrooms will be on-site. Amenities are minimal Map coordinates are: N41.644/W77.275.
