Kananaskis Rally – Powderface is Back!

KananaskisRallyWelcome, this is a notice for the change of location, date and format for the Calgary Sports Car Club (CSCC) autumn rally and the 4th round of the Western Canadian Rally Championship. As you are aware the Kananaskis Rally was moved in 2013 to Radium BC because of the damage caused to the roads by the flood that year. There was always an understanding that the event would be brought back to Kananaskis Country as and when the roads were repaired. Well that has been done….

Website is active at  http://kananaskisrally.ca  Entry form, volunteers etc will be available as the planning proceeds.

The rally will now take place on the 6th November 2016 in Kananaskis Country, Alberta. We have moved it away from the long weekend to allow family time as well as rally time. It also reduces the impact to other users in the immediate area. This year’s Kananaskis Rally will be a departure from the rallies held before, we have made this a true 1day rally, with registration, tech and recce in the morning and the rally being held in the afternoon. This is being done in an effort to reduce the costs involved with rallying in Western Canada, e.g. fuel and hotel costs. It also aids attracting the volunteers to come and help with the event management, as most volunteers can come to the rally and be home the same day.

Given that we are doing a 1 day event we have looked for best use of the roads, and as such we will only be using Powderface Trail, the road is looking fantastic.

One Day: 6th November 2016
One Road: Powderface Trail
Four Stages: 79.2 Km
One rally: The Kananaskis Simplified Rally 2016

Hope to see you there,

Matt Pullen
