Washington DC Region Hosting October Double National Road Rally
The Washington DC Region SCCA, in conjunction with the Branded Rally Club of Maryland, is bringing back the double National RoadRally weekend on Columbus Day weekend in 2012, October 6 and 7.
Saturday will feature Eric Bloom's award-winning Catoctin Monte.

Sunday will feature the fourth running of two-time Gervais winning Lobster Traps Course Rally and the first Lobster Traps GTA Rally presented by Chris Bean and Steve Gaddy.
