The long wait is almost over!

Spring has typically been a slow season for rally in our region. The winter RallyCross season finishes up in March and people start looking towards warmer weather pursuits. Some are preparing their Performance rally cars for the upcoming season and still others are patrolling the back roads of Nova Scotia looking for the best ones to use for Time/Speed/Distance Rallies.

On Sunday, June 11th the annual 2017 BAC Bluenose Rally will take place which will start and finish in Bridgewater, Nova Scotia. This Time/Speed/Distance Navigational rally is open to everyone of any experience level. All you need is a street car, a friend, a pencil and a watch! Teams set off at 2 minute intervals with instructions that they must follow at specific speeds and timings in order to reach hidden checkpoints. Penalties are assigned for each minute early or late! Its a great, low contact way to get a feel for the accuracy and teamwork of rally in a safe environment! This is a very Novice friendly event with easy to follow instructions (but hard to master!) and a quick First-Timer school session will take place before the event. For more details, schedules and how to enter be sure to RSVP via either the ARMS Forum or Facebook!
