Rally of the Tall Pines, Bancroft ON
THE 2016 RALLY OF THE TALL PINES WILL TAKE PLACE ON NOVEMBER 25/26.
Earth Shredding Entertainment! Thanks for visiting the Rally of the Tall Pines website!
Just imagine if you took a small car, gave it four-wheel-drive, turbocharged it to over 300 horsepower, and then drove it flat-out sideways down twisty treacherous forest roads – lined with trees, rocks and cheering fans. Kicking up dirt or snow, spitting flames. Sliding on the edge of control, and sometimes over it! This is rally racing at the Rally of the Tall Pines and it is taking the world by storm.
The Rally of the Tall Pines (25- 26 Nov. 2016) is dedicated to bringing you even more explosive competition this year! You won't want to miss round six of the Canadian Rally Championship this coming November. Being just over 2 hours from Toronto, this event is your best opportunity to see and experience what the extreme sport of Performance Rally Racing is all about.
