Just got off the phone with the Vancouver Island resident who won the eBay auction that has finally cleaned me out of all things Halda and it turns out he's building a Mini Cooper S for vintage rally and mentioned the possible resurrection of the Shell 4000 Rally. Gave me this URL - http://www.shell-4000-rally.org/

If that's not already old news, then enjoy!

Good news, we need more vintage competitors up here in BC (whether TSD or stage)!

As for the likely revival of the Shell 4000, anyone got a year to spare off work for planning and/or $150K in funding to pay for it all?

Here in BC we are toying with the idea of hosting a multi-day TSD rally sometime, maybe a 50th annual Thunderbird or something, but it's a big stretch to try recreating anything remotely like the Shell 4000.

Like Doug Woods pointed out to me, the likelihood of anyone getting permission to host an OPEN ROAD, multi-day STAGE rally event like the original Shell 4000 Rally is pretty remote (try absolute zero!) - those days are long gone in Canada & the USA.

I think stage rallies on open roads died when POR got trademarked ;) among other things...

Then again, lookee what they did in Newfoundland www.targanewfoundland.com

My $0.02

Well the Alcan rally is a multi-day TSD.... I'd be all for a multi-day historic TSD in Canada. And I have three cars I could choose from!
