Kitchener Waterloo Rally Club is putting on Georgian Trials, a regional event with about 60 miles of stages. Entry fee is $US 225.00

The rally is on Saturday Oct. 11 in Britt, Ontario, about 3 hours north of Toronto on Hwy. 69. I would expect that it's 5 hours from Buffalo or 6 hours from Detroit.

Your SCCA licence is good in Canada, there is no requirement to join a Canadian club. Car classes are generally the same as in the States except we don't have G5.

Hope to see you there. Information is at [link:www.kwrc.on.ca|www.kwrc.on.ca]

Detroit - Toronto is roughly 5 hour drive, but still, I was lucky enough to drive the Black Fly,.. I mean the Black Bear Rallye last year. Love it up there.
In October there should be snow already, right?

EXCELLENT, EXCELLENT, EXCELLENT!!! It's not a national but it uses the same roads as the Rally of the Voyageur (that was anounced last year wasn't going to happen this year because there was no organizer for this year :( ). It's good to hear that an event is still going to happen in Britt. The roads up there are a load of fun. There's one stage that is a "go as wide open as you can 'cause it still ain't fast enough!" stage for the first 2/3 followed by a car-breaker goat path for the last 3-ish km (just to keep the stage average speed down) and it's a turn-around stage so you do it twice. I'm not a fast driver and I saw over 150kmph in 4th in my 4-spd Volvo last year on that stage so I'll let you think about how fast you'll go in your Mitsubeagle with AWD and turbo. I hope they use it this year on the Georgian Trials.

Anyone in the north-east with a valid license should go! Canada has the BEST (!!!) bang-for-the-buck rallying in this part of the world! If I get another rally license it'll be a CARS license!

Best of regards to the organizers, they shouldn't need much luck!

It may be cheap dollar wise (for entires, etc.). But it's still not cheap vacation timewise. A 12 hour tow from Philadelphia requires more vacation days that I (and some other people) have available. Sure wish I could give it a try but until my employer gets with it . . . .

That was my same excuse for not going to Sandhills Blast (or whatever it's called now) as a driver. I went to that in '96 when I was co-driving for Kurt Thiel. We won G2 but the drive was still a pain. Back then Michelin had a press-day at their proving grounds in Greenville, it was fantastic (especially the polished pavement with sprinklers on it, who knew that Michelin M4s drifted so nicely on pavement in 3rd gear?)!!

I suppose I've taken for granted how close I am to the border with the Great White North. Sorry, I'll now stop shouting about how affordable and fun the rallies up there are.
