Fresh from their open class win at Alberta’s Cochrane Rally in March, driver Mark
Jennings-Bates and co-driver Jennifer Daly are looking forward to the fast,
smooth, open rally roads of Northeastern Washington. The Olympus Rally was a
part of the World Rally Championship in the 1980s, and over 50 rally teams have
entered in 2008. The Prescribed Burn Team is one of only 5 Canadian teams
competing.
Olympus will be the first Rally America event for the team, an organization that
has brought commercial attention and fanfare to US rally. In recent years rally
has been attracting action sport personalities such as Travis Pastrana and Dave
Peachland

Mirra, and is gaining exposure as a new event in the Summer X Games
competition. There is also an older tradition of rallying in the Pacific Northwest,
represented by two-wheel drive, small budget teams who take turns in the
driver’s seat.
The Prescribed Burn team will be up against unknown competition in unfamiliar
territory at Olympus, and they are looking forward to the challenge. Mark and
Jennifer have entered the regional events in a yellow open class 1993 Subaru
Impreza. They will be supported by a volunteer service crew lead by Dave
Hood, including Ian Barrett and Alex Schubel, all from Kelowna. The Prescribed
Burn Rally Team is competing at Olympus as preparation for its first national
event in 2008, the Rocky Mountain Rally in May.
The Prescribed Burn Rally Team is an Okanagan based performance rally team
that is supported by BCResortHomes.com, Sun FM, Agar Paint & Autobody,
BigO Tire in Westbank, OkanaganVisitor.ca. Provision Data, Stacy Screen Print,
