Many PNW competitors will be making the trek to the great white north (eh) this weekend for the 2003 Pacific Forest Rally!

You can catch the action in Merritt, BC just 2.5 hours east of Vancouver via 4-lane divided toll highway ($10.00 Cdn or about $6.00 US).

Watch as the battle of North American Group 2 VW Golfs unfolds - will it be Scott Fuller & Jeff Call? Gord Olsen & Dave Shindle? Not to mention: Noah Third & Jason Lane; Tom Machnik & Amy Quinn; Derek Bottles & Becca Galfer.

Don't like Golfs? How about Rabbits? Well we got two of those: Dave Ellis & Judd Gallagher, and Eric Grochowski & Leanne Junnila.

Fancy the older cars? Well we have a whole slate of late-historic (post-vintage?) Group "D" (as in Dinosaurs!) entries:

Peter Hill & Dave Sharp 1973 Toyota Corolla, 8th overall at Rocky Mtn!
Ted Wilkinson & Bill Westhead 1980 Toyota Corolla, last year's "near winners" (yes the fuel system is fixed!)
Glenn Wallace & Claire Chizma 1967 Ford Cortina GT, VERY nicely built.
David Ellis & Judd Gallagher 1977 VW Rabbit, again VERY nicely done.
Adam Scrivens & Jan-Micheal Stasiuk 1978 Datsun 510, two teenagers in a car older than they are!
Eric Grochowski & Leanne Junnila 1981 VW Rabbit GTI, recently rebuilt
Chad Manley & Blake Startup 1981 Toyota Celica, in the now infamous "Roach"

What? Don't like old cars? Well what about retro-cars? We got two (yes 2!) new Minis: Tony Reynolds & Sean McPhee AND Eugene & Felix Wong.

Oh, and don't forget the battle of the titans:

Tom McGeer & Jeff Becker - 2002 Subaru WRX
Pat Richard & Ian McCurdy - 2004 Subaru WRX STi
Sylvain & Philip Erikson - Mitsubishi Lancer EVO IV
Andrew Comrie-Picard & Marc Goldfarb - Mitsubishi Lancer EVO IV

It won't be 'the' battle of NA as its missing one infamous Gr2 Golf belonging to Nichols. He hopes to be at Baie.

Indeed, Jon won't be here...not to mention Todd Hartmann in his Golf.

No matter, my job is to hype-hype-hyper-ventilate <breathe>

I know the rally hasn't even started yet, but boy do I ever need a beer...

See ya in Merritt,

Bill
