I am signed up to co-drive for Richard Penrose at Rocky. I have a couple questions:

1. As a US license holder, I am going to have to fill out some paperwork and pay some admin fee like R-A is doing to Canadian competitors running in the US now, right? Should I take care of this ahead of time or just do this at registration? (My first aid is current; maybe I should just get a physical and renew my CARS license!)

2. Are results going to become official back up in Calgary after Leg 2? I was hoping to drive back to Seattle soon after the rally and Calgary is in the wrong direction.

It will be nice to get back up to Canada. I have missed running up there.

No, you can run in Canada on an American license.

As the scorer, I can tell you that results will become final at the banquet, which is back in Calgary. If you don't want to go back to Calgary to get them, I can email you an unofficial copy of the final results the next day. Just give me your email address.

Hey Dave,

The supps have a section labelled "US Competitors" and the following line appears in that section:

(Note: RA and NASA licenced competitors must register with CARS
and complete the CARS event entry permit form available on the
CARS web site: www.carsrally.ca under 'downloads'. The form and annual fee of $50 cdn should be sent to CARS, but may be
relayed to CARS through the event registrar.)

That lead me to believe that I need to fill out a form and pay some money.

As far as the scoring thing, one of my jobs as co-driver is to ensure that the scores are correct and deal with inquiries, so I feel I need to hang around until the scores are final.

Hi Alan,

Good to see you're coming back!

Americans welcome in Canada - I believe we will have the forms at registration - and will definitely collect money :)

We will have 'unofficial' results and photo shoot at the finish ceremony at the Skyline Ranch - however 'Official' results will be posted back in Calgary.

So I guess it depends on your finishing positions etc and it's up to you!

See you next week!

Shawn
ps. Just came back from a route check on Powderface and it's in great condition - freshly graded!

Alan,

You might want to confirm not only if you have to fill out a form and pay some money ... but whether those steps make you eligible to score points as well (if that's what you're after). Maybe things have changed during the 4 months between when I purchased my RA license and when I competed at a USRC event ... but there seems to be some confusion. Maybe the confusion is just in my head! Anyway, you may want to confirm things before you compete.

The April 24th posting from CARS clears it up: in order to score points in the CARS championship, you must be a member of a CARS-affiliated club and must have a CARS lic.

I'm looking forward to running against another cosworth!

This part is nothing new.

Thanks, Nathalie. I don't think that I will be running enough Canadian events this year that points will be a concern.

I had a CARS National license in 2003, but I let it lapse in 2004 when my plans for running events that year fell apart and I ended up running just one Regional with Gord. I am still a member of WCRA and my first aid certificate is still valid. So, I am thinking about getting the medical exam and just getting a CARS license again. Just so I can have three licenses to fumble with at event registration!
