2009 Black River Stages on September 19th and 20th in upstate NY. Entire gallery found here : http://gtluke.smugmug.com/RallyAddict/2009-Black-River-Stages
The Parc Expose’ was mid Saturday afternoon, we arrived there around 12:30 and spent the next 45 minutes talking to drivers and other local fans.
SS1, Texas, was about 20 minutes away. We arrived at the spectator area and soon realized that is was a very long bend (6?) with very limited viewing area.
After SS1 we headed out to Jerdan Falls North. Here we planned to watch the stage and then move on, however there was a quite serious crash that resulted in delays. While waiting we messed around taking a few pictures.
After a couple hours the stage finally went hot. I had some issues getting the type of night shots I wanted but these will have to make due.
That was the end of our night. We went back to Watertown to hit up Buffalo Wild Wings and then pass out.
The next day we headed out to Fullerville South. Here we met up with a team that had some bad luck that morning. We proceeded to ask questions about where we could find a decent garage in Brooklyn. I cant thank Ozgur enough for being patient with all of our questions.
After watching two passes our weekend was over, we headed back to Watertown to grab some food at the Texas Roadhouse.
Overall it was a great weekend, but I wish the spectator spots could have been more exciting.
*We didn’t forget about the bikers either*
