Welcome to STPR® 2012

The Waste Management Susquehannock Trail Performance Rally, presented by Citizen's and Northern Bank, is based out of scenic and historic Wellsboro, Pennsylvania.

STPR® regularly draws the top rally teams from the United States, Canada and abroad who enjoy putting their skills to the extreme test of performance rally. Competitors from the worldwide professional rally community are also found at this premier event.

Performance rallying is the exciting and demanding motorsport. With its high percentage of stage miles and a course featuring some of the most challenging roads in the world, STPR® is one of the America’s best-known rally events.

STPR® 2012 marks the 36th anniversary of this event, the oldest, continuously-running motorsports event in the state. Round four of the 2012 Rally America National Championship, the event will take place June 1-2 with headquarters at the Tioga County Fairgrounds.

STPR will be the inaugural event for the Open Lite Academy. This is a new series for cars competing in the Open Light class. It is the only Rally America event so far in the series, crossing sanctioning organizations to include all teams competing in this class. This is an opportunity for STPR® to showcase the series within the event. We are very proud and pleased to be the first to bring this class of car to the attention of our many fans.

Its support events, the Finger Lakes Rally (coefficient 2 event) and the Sherwood Forest Rally (coefficient 3 event) are part of the Rally America Eastern Regional Championship Series.

The Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources, Bureau of Forestry is providing almost 63 miles of roads in the Susquehannock, Tioga and Tiadaghton State Forests for the special stages.  Added to the forest roads is over nine miles of private road, some of which had to be resurrected for STPR®.  Then there is the Super Special Stage at the Tioga County Fairgrounds.  For a small fee, you have the opportunity to sit in grandstands and watch to cars as the run all of the stage. 

Title sponsor Waste Management provides use of its land for several rally stages. Local sponsors are businesses and organizations that support not only STPR, but the charity road rally and other activities.

Choice spectator points for viewing the competition are a special feature of STPR®. Information on the spectator points and routes to reach them are printed in the Official Program and Spectator Guide available at registration, the Green and the Chamber of Commerce. The cars are available for inspection at the Parc Exposé around The Green before the morning and evening segments of the rally.

Organized and promoted by Finger Lakes STPR® Motorsport, LLC, the rally is conducted in cooperation with the Wellsboro Area Chamber of Commerce and the Pennsylvania Department of Conservation & Natural Resources, Bureau of Forestry. Finger Lakes STPR® Motorsport is based in Rochester, New York.
