Missing Shannonville Stages (April 12 - Shannonville, Ontario) and the western Canadian regionals (Cochrane, Mountain Trials, Kananaskis, Big White; not sure what dates)

Also Targa Newfoundland (Sept 14-19 - St John's, Newfoundland)

Very cool map - thanks for compiling

Shannonville and TARGA added. Could someone give me a heads up when the Rally West 2014 event schedule is published?

sorry, not Nova Scotia....New Brunswick...http://www.lookoffrally.com/ One full stage rally + two rally sprints. The date for the rally sprints is not set but the full rally is.
Maybe my internets is broken but I can't find the 2014 date for Look Off Rally.

What's unfortunate is that all Rally America national events, with the one notable exception of Oregon Trail, are in the East and NorthEast, which makes the R-A national championship largely impractical for pretty much everyone on the West Coast. If one is based in SoCal, the closest R-A national event (OT) is just over 1000 miles each way, with all other national events being > 2000 miles each way. Sure, it might be possible to rent garage space for rally car & associated spares, service vehicle & tools somewhere somewhat central e.g. Pittsburgh, and pay someone to prep the car, but that only adds to the cost & does nothing to mitigate the cost of flights from the West Coast to the East Coast for competitors & essential crew members.

Is this a map of Rallies? NORRA, San Felipe 250 and Imperial Valley 250 are not car-based rally events. Nor are the Baja events.

Just sayin'.....

I've seen cars at the NORRA rallies. You'll have to describe in more detail how your flavor of "pure rally" excludes that from being called a rally.

Same problem if youre in Florida or Texas. Only 100AW is close. Sandblast for NASA. Its a big country.
