Lanark Highlands Forest Rally -- May 6 and 7!!

Postby morrow » 2016.05.06 09:26:13 AM

Today it starts! People are already gathering to prepare Rally HQ up at McDonald's Corners for the MCO Rally Group's signature event:
the Lanark Highlands Forest Rally.

May 6-7 is a big date on our rally calendar, and MCO'ers have been working hard to prepare for our teams, their crew and all of our wonderful workers to descend on this tiny hamlet.

Our event is part of the provincial series (OPRC), as well as the new Eastern Canadian Rally Championship. Perhaps for this reason, we have had a welcome influx of enthusiastic -- and talented -- Rally drivers and co-drivers from Quebec. We have some 21 teams in the OPRC section, as well as 3 teams in a new event, a rally sprint.

If you like fast cars on dirt roads, paired with excellent car control, you won't want to miss this! Please visit the MERA Schoolhouse / Rally HQ to find out where to spectate.

If you want to see the cars at Service, be there by about 10:30 a.m. to check them out as Car 1 leaves at 11:01 a.m. They'll be back at Service starting at about 2 p.m.

More information is available at and also see our Rally forum.

Who's entered from MCO?

Car 4 - David Lamarre (MCO) / Kelly Mathew (MLRC; she won an award at the 2015 MCO banquet for her dedication to our event!)
Car 10 - Peter MacDonald (MCO; also owns / Ferd Trauttmansdorff (MCO; long-time driver of Martin Walter who's retired)
Car 21 -- John Merry (MCO; a respected co-driver who's taking on the other seat) / Jack Gielas (I don't know his club)

RSO is setting up live results so stay tuned if you can't be there. Also check out

And don't forget the rally sprint! MCO drivers Darryl Malone and Matt Waters will be there -- you can cheer them on from home or admire their driving on Umpherson's Mill Road.

To all my friends at MCO, please come out and see what we do. Rally racing is nothing short of amazing!!

Hope to see you there --
