Entry sent.

Wonder if there is any details yet as to the makup of the rally--Are some stages going to be at Active Mountain Raceway (i.e. partially asphalt)?

If so is it going to be the Friday night stages or Saturday stages?

Any idea of the approximate milage?

Thanks,
-k

I'm assuming that the "little bit of pavement" described in the supps is the short blast at one end of the Princeton Cut-Off stage.

The supps do describe the tentative mileage distribution over the two days.

PS: Ken, I'll have a profile to you in the next couple of days

Well... there is bits of pavement all over the place }(

We're still working on confirmation of all the road use agreements but for now, just a brief description of what we're planning for you...

***THIS IS TENTATIVE***

Friday night stages:
- downtown pavement & gravel mixed stage (think the old railyard mall service area)
- lily lake ( at night! gasp!)
- comstock (with a nice stretch of pavement in the middle of the stage)

Saturday stages:
- AMR (either new track or mountain trials 05 version) no pavement here
- princeton cut-off (with pavment at the end of the stage)
- nicola
- sheep/mab
- helmer (working on adding extra extension - formerly transit downhill with jumps and exposures)

That's the plan for now - once we get the contracts signed - we will be posting the detailed schedule and distances of the stages so all of you can do your budgeting for fuel.

I can just see all of you pulling out the notes from events past....

Hope that helps a bit for now :)

Ah yes. That should be fun to watch from the hightway at night!

Beware the ever-present tow truck:
I ran a CP for a Totem at the CG/entrance to the tunnel. Within 3 cars (minutes) there was a vulture ready to hook me up. Had to do some quick thinking - trying to explain why I had a clip-board and weird clock-thingy while parked on the side of the road (not very wide BTW! :eek: ).
"Yeah, I was - uh - 'nearly' over-heating. Yeah, thats it... Just a sec ... *click* (car passes CG)... I'll be here a bit and then be on my way."

Just to clarify, these stages are all running in the same direction as last PFR.

You won't recognize the north end of Helmer since they've logged it. The first km of the stage is now completely visible from the highway. Stages visible from major highways seems to be becoming quite a theme for PFR!

Mab is now accessed from the Nicola stage, so the really rough bit in the bottom half is gone, as is the turn-around that we had at the top of Nicola last year.

We drove all of the stages except Comstock last weekend, on all-season tires and no skid plate, so doing recce in a rental car should be fine as long as you exercise due caution.

Does that avoid the waterbar minefield that was a transit a couple years ago? If so, that stage should be an absolute blast!

Well, that's the tradeoff. There are two ways into Mab - one from the top of Nicola uses the waterbar transit, which was actually in pretty good shape last weekend - perfectly driveable with no skidplate, as long as you take your time. The other way in is from Mill Creek, as we did last PFR, which has about 2km of really rough road in the stage.

RE: PFR to be televised across Canada

As per the western forum, new deadline for competitor profiles is Sunday Sept 18th so take Saturday to get them to Ken.

This is great exposure in a beautiful glossy at no extra expense!
