The 2016 Loop Rally will be running overnight on September 24th and will be headed south of Calgary to explore the scenic Rocky Mountain Foothills.
This is a TSD or Naviational event, so we won't be travelling at warp speed, but due to the overnight schedule auxiliary lights would not do any harm.
There will be an informative Q&A Session (Novice School) for people new to TSD rallying from 16:00 to 17:00 in Nanton before the event.
The rally will use straight-forward navigation in a Regularity / Monte Carlo format, including challenging driving sections. Some driving proficiency will be required due to the night schedule and the challenging nature of the event.
We are aiming for approx 650 kilometres, with 30% paved roads and 70% gravel or all weather roads in Alberta and BC.

With the Loop Rally only a few more days away we just wanted to remind everyone to pack warm clothing as we do expect it to be close to zero degrees (or below) at times during the event. Please mount your snow tires if you have them.
The Alison's won the coin toss over Chad/Liam and will have the honor of being first car on the road.
We might drop the interval down to 1 minute between cars to make it a more intimate affair. We will let you know at the start of registration.
The Flames Preseason tickets (3 each) for the early entry draw went to Katie, Brandon and Kristy. Don't feel obligated to take your Driver or Navigator as you may not be on speaking terms after Sunday. ;)
See you all soon!
The route has been checked and it has been graded to perfection for almost the entire route.
Shawn Bishop with rallysport.ca has donated a LED Light Bar which will go to the top finishing Novice.
For the early entry draw we have a road rally handbook and some pre-season Calgary Flames tickets up for grabs.
The Supps can be download here. The 2016 Loop will again travel south via the Porcupine Hills into the Pincher Creek and Crowsnest Pass area similar to previous years. There are still a couple of bridges out in the area but we will piece something interesting together as always.
George Benda (a veteran rallyist from the 70s) has signed on to help organise the event. Thanks George!
