GCFR 2016

Postby gully » 2016.06.07 09:35:56 AM

OPRC – ECRC GALWAY CAVENDISH FOREST RALLY
Friday, July 8th & Saturday, July 9th, 2016

Registration is open for both competitors and workers. Go to http://pmscrally.com/gcfr/

The GCFR is proud and pleased to be included as the third event in the 2016 Ontario Performance Rally Championship and, excitingly, the fourth event in the Eastern Canadian Rally Championship.

For those who are unfamiliar with this new championship, check out the website at:
http://www.ecrc-crec.ca/index.php/en_ca/home

As you can see, in spite of there being no cost to enter the championship, there are substantial cash awards to be won.

This year we’re doing our best to keep the costs to compete under control. By having zero transits on open roads, we’re able to allow unlicenced and uninsured vehicles to enter and compete, hopefully encouraging some of those older cars out of storage and back into competition.

Differing from previous years, the plan is to drop the Quarry stage along with the rougher parts of Loom Lake. This will provide us with the fantastic Fire Access portion with its wide smooth generally flowing roadway and, additionally, four km of the more technical Loom Lake portion of the Fire Access Road.

The seeded draw has been held, and Mathieu and I are Car 13. We are Open 2WD.

It should be a good time, with teams ranged from Seed 1 (Thompson / Sprongl) to three Seed 6's (including us). Ian Crerar is back rallying this weekend, with Canadian champion co-driver Alan Ockwell calling the notes. And we have three teams from Quebec joining us.

I hope to see MCO volunteers at GCFR!
