Just two official entries have been received as of May 1st...but it's still 6 weeks 'til showtime!

Meanwhile, a bunch of competitor profiles have been posted on-line. Please note that these have been submitted for publication in the PFR Spectator Guide and should not yet be construed as offical entries.

Think of it as a prod to get your own entry in before the 35 car limit is reached.

Cheers,

St-Jean, Quebec. - The current leaders of the Canadian Rally Championship, the team of Antoine L'Estage and Yanick Napert have decided to host a reception on Thursday May 8th for all their rally fans and supporters.

Finally, the third event for the team will be the Pacific Forest Rally on June 13-14th based in Merritt, British Colombia -- a first in this province since the 1970s. Hyundai Châteauguay Concerto and all the members of Coyote Rally Team will be present at this celebration.

With the support of our partners, we should succeed in ,making our budget. The activities that we've organized with Billiards O Tips will be used to help us meet and thank all our of partners and our supporters. We never seem to have the time during the year to do it, given the intensity and length of the competition calendar."

Hey I just wanted to thank Dennis Wende and who ever else is working on the website for getting all the profiles and etc up. Its a lot of work putting all that content up on the PFR site and I just think you deserve some recognition.

Many of these teams don't have websites and I think its great that the PFR organizing commitee is promoting all these team profiles online, its good for exposure of the race, and the racers.

Thanks,

I am planing on bringing my new Gp2 car up, but with the car still under construction and its first event just one week prior we are not going to commit just yet.

Becca and I loved the roads and people at Mt Trails last year so we are working hard to make it happen.
