Rally Tennessee Block Party Will Be April 7

  • Thursday, March 30, 2023

As part of the demonstration event, Rally Tennessee is hosting a special community block party on Station Street in downtown Chattanooga on Friday, April 7, form 6-9 p.m. This celebration will provide opportunities to learn more about rally racing, meet and greets with drivers, co-drivers, and organizers, and more.

In addition, food and beverage will be available for purchase from surrounding businesses.

The block party is free and open to the public. 

Hamilton and Polk counties were identified by World Rally Championship Promoter, and affiliated partners, as the best location in the United States to host the return of WRC international rally racing.
Rally Tennessee consists of two events: April 7-8: Rally Tennessee Demonstration Event
Fall 2023: Rally Tennessee Test Event (specific dates TBD)

Both events will take place in Hamilton and Polk counties including the Cherokee National Forest. 
Fewer than 10 rally cars will compete at the April 8 demonstration. Competitors will use street legal cars to follow the event route on Lost Creek Road/FR103 in the Cherokee National Forest in Polk County. 

Assuming both events are successful and approved by the WRC Promoter and the Federation of International Automobile, Southeast Tennessee will have the opportunity to host an FIA WRC event in 2024.
