Well, there will be a bunch of Impreza wagon for sure!!

Just in time rally team will be there with the 2 cars. Unfortunately, I won't be the co-driver in "the Clone"!

So an Open class wagon and a P3 wagon will be there!!

To all potential and possible competitors of the Perce-Neige: If you are kinda sorta thinking about competing in the Perce-Neige, if you can swing it at all, PLEASE support the Perce-Neige rally. They (and the Bighorn Rally, too) REALLY need your help this year.

for sure Doug !! it will be my pleasure... if you are around service look for the Valley tire cube truck with a Michelin tent and our impreza wagon (we will be the guys trying to duct tape the front & rear of the car back together from snowbank impacts :+ :+ )

I had a blast running Perce Neige last year but due mostly to no train announcement we have not been able to seriously plan on being there. The costs involved to fly/ship our team there and back are too great.

:(

Hopefully I'll be there next year!!!

Good luck to everyone competing this year... don't let the loop take you!

I had given some thought to PN ... but, as with Andrew, no train announcement has prety much eliminated PN from the events I can realistically look at.

>No Ontario teams:-(

Shouldn't be a big surprise ... last year Ontario only had 28% of license holders, down from over 50% at one time. The number of events happening in Ontario also seems to be down.
Hopefully this decline in interest and activity is a temporary slump. I know that the level of activity in the west is growing like mad. I can think of at least a half dozen or more newly built or bought cars between RallyWest and BC.


As for the entry list being thin ... it seems to be a tradition for teams to enter Canadian Events at the last minute - which is really unfair to the organisers - but something they tend to deal with. Only 8 cars entered in the National portion ... Let's hope that we get a bit more support for the event!!!

Well, since the rules/supps don't have any incentive for teams to enter much before the seeded draw on Feb 2, I wouldn't expect to see a definitive entry list until after that date. I do know of one Ontario team entering the event, and I'm sure there will be others.

The interest in Ontario seems to be in winter TSD at the moment, at least based on the Snowy Safari entry list.

TSD in general is up in Ontario this year. 14 events! 4 winter events, two night and two day evemts and a couple of fall events that can be wintery on the road though not with forgiving winter ditches (President's Prize in late November and Frostbite in December). It was 10 degrees or so for January Jaunt though.

Not to derail the thread, and yes, I did search - but what train announcement are you referring to? Or do you mean there's been no announcement yet? (I hope there'll be a Rocky train??) Anyone?

Thanks,

Robin
