DirtFish was first born from our founder’s nostalgia of British rally roads.
In June 2010, the Snoqualmie, Washington property was purchased and DirtFish was born. The overarching vision was to become the premier rally school in the United States. Beyond rally, DirtFish is the driving frontier for agility, skill, and confidence behind the wheel.
Take a look at DirtFish’s interesting history below.
In 1917, the Snoqualmie Lumber Company purchased this property and established a lumber site across the river from the current city of Snoqualmie, Washington.
The Snoqualmie Lumber Company was later renamed Weyerhaeuser, and became a huge beneficiary of the need for lumber during both World Wars and the construction boom that followed. The property still boasts some of its historic structures that made the mill such a key element of the economic growth within the Seattle area.

We currently offer ten racing simulators thanks to the gaming geniuses over at Microsoft. With different seat styles and an optional adjustable track, these realistic gaming seats really bring driving games to life. Each simulator is powered by its own XBOX ONE and some of the games even feature a drive on a DirtFish course in a DirtFish car!
Family and friends are welcome to spectate while you’re getting sideways! The Gazebo is strategically located to make it the perfect place to take pictures, cheer on your fellow ralliers, and stay comfortable in any type of PNW weather.

We’ve created endless courses perfect for getting sideways. We run rain or shine. Or snow. Or hail or sleet.
No matter which program you choose, you’ll find yourself sliding sideways on roads like these. The longer or more advanced your program, the more roads you’ll see. In our private courses, your course becomes much more flexible, and you’ll see even more.
Rally doesn’t stop for weather and neither do we. The only time we will cancel a class due to weather is if we deem it unsafe to drive.
“DirtFish has been on my radar for a number of years. I didn’t even know that DirtFish offered all-women’s courses, and once I found out, I knew I had to get there.
“Every time I’ve had a long break from behind the wheel of my rally car, I like to try and get up to Dirtfish for some time behind the wheel and get a refresher in the basics.
It always helps me get back up to race speed quickly and is a great excuse to go have some fun ripping around Dirtfish’s awesome tracks.”
“If you are looking for a high quality Rally Experience with the most up-to-date rally cars, then DirtFish is your place, AWD and RWD fun for all. USA’s one stop for rally and RX training with the best cars and instructors.”
“My time at DirtFish was everything I could have hoped for and more.
The supportive and knowledgeable instructors made sure that my first time behind the wheel of a rally car was one to remember. I took part in the all women’s class and cannot emphasize how much being surrounded by likeminded, encouraging females added to the experience. I’ll be back!”
