Oregon Results to Remain Provisional Until Protest Ruling

Thursday, May 19, 2011
The results of the 2011 Oregon Trail Rally will remain provisional pending the decision of a RallyCar Protest Committee about a claim filed by the Super Production team of Travis and Terry Hanson against Ramana Lagemann and co-driver Chrissie Beavis. The Rally America National Championship points standings will not be updated until a committee until this matter is final

A Protest Committee has been assembled consisting of individuals familiar with RallyCar’s rules. The Committee will interview relevant teams, officials, and witnesses to render a decision.

The outcome of the protest will have a direct bearing on both teams’ Oregon Trail Rally, Class, and overall Championship standings.

Any organizer, official, entrant, or competitor may appeal the decision by the Protest Committee within 30 minutes of its announcement. The appellant then has 10 days to submit their appeal. An Appeals Committee will be formed during the 10 day period and they will have 15 days to make a decision based on the appeal.

RallyCar will release a statement once the Protest Committee makes a decision on the Hansons’ claim.
