January 29 Update:
Only five days to go until the rallycross on ice. Regarding the multiple requests for ice reports: we will announce an official thickness once samples have been taken, but weather and temperatures do look favorable for the event. Please remember, everyone helping with the ice reports are volunteers, so daily updates are not possible, if and when there is firm news we will pass it on.
With the date change we've managed to fit in all of those on the wait list! But today I also had two more cancellations. This means that I have TWO spots left to fill, and I'll be accepting the first two entries in my email inbox (either by the entry form at http://rallybc.com/RallyX/2013/2013_..._entryform.doc or the online form at http://rallybc.com/wcra/sss_rx/survey.php ). So if you've got friends who want to come race, get them on it right away!
Unfortunately mother nature is not cooperating with our first event January 20th, current ice conditions are highly unfavourable. The current temperature in the area of the lake has created poor ice conditions in both depth and density. Weather reports look favorable for future events as ice thickness has tripled in the past three weeks, however the current rate will not allow for our January 20th event.
Our alternative day for the first Barnes event is Saturday Febuary 2nd. To ensure fair process, current competitor entries will be honored provided they re-confirm by email to: [email protected] by Thursday January 17th at 5:00pm. After that, wait list entries will be contacted to fill available spots. Please respond by email whether you intend to come to the February 2nd Rallyx or not. I want to make sure that everyone has gotten this email and nobody heads up to Ashcroft next weekend!
And please remember to re-book your hotel rooms for the new weekend.
Keep your fingers crossed, we hope to see you all on the lake!
Ever raced on a frozen lake? NOW is your chance!

There have been MANY changes to the supp regs this year, PLEASE read them thoroughly. We have also been asked by other users of the venue to NOT call it by it's name on ANY social media.

The actual location can by found in the supp regs - if anyone asks simply direct them there.
Please remember to bring:
