A quiet spring before the rally rumble!

_7d27345Its been a quiet spring since the final RallyCross of the season took place in late March, but that doesn’t mean the rally community is asleep! Cars are coming out of storage, parts are being bought and installed, plans are being made and, most importantly, our teams of dedicated organizers are preparing a great calendar of rally events for the summer months!

Starting on June 12th the traditional BAC Bluenose TSD Rally will take place, starting and ending in Windsor, NS. Stay tuned for details! Also in Navigational Rally, the epic Run the Rock event returns to Newfoundland on July 1st! As much an event as it is a rally! Check it out if you can!

On the performance front the Bluenose Autosport Club will be holding its Performance Rally Championship again for 2016 with a 3 event calendar starting with the big one, the Ledwidge Lookoff Rally. The marquee event of the season moves up a month this year to July 23rd/24th in order to better position the event for out of region competitors. Combined with our steadily growing roster of local cars we should have a stellar event for competitors, spectators and volunteers alike in 2016! Whether you’re in a car or helping out on the sidelines you won’t want to miss this one!

Swapping places with the big event, the Laffin Lake RallySprint returns on August 27th with the now traditional Trout Lake RallySprint rounding out the calendar on October 16th which ties us right back into the start of the 2016-2017 BAC RallyCross Championship! There’s tons of fun to be had going sideways!

In other news local competitor Malcolm Swann once again attacked the stage roads of Quebec, this time with the Tarmac stages of the Rallye de Sanair along side co-driver Martin Cadieux, bringing home a third place in 2WD! Congrats guys on doing our region proud!

Stay tuned here and on Facebook for info and up to date event details all summer long! Rally Rally Rally!
