Rally of the Tall Pines, Bancroft ON
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 (28-29 Nov. 2014) 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.

WANT TO TRY THE RALLY OF THE TALL PINES, BUT DON'T HAVE A RALLY CAR?
Why not join our competitors on Friday November 28 during their recce. It just may start the process of you becoming a competitor.
For the 2014 Rally of the Tall Pines we are offering the opportunity for people to attend our pace notes/recce school, be provided with a route book and pace notes, the same as the competitors and for them to take their own vehicle on the special stages that we will be using on the rally.
The cost will be $75.00 plus HST per vehicle.
We do need to add a note of caution. The roads maybe slick with ice or snow, so snow tires are essential. Also some of the roads may be rough in places so a vehicle with good ground clearance is necessary. The roads we use on the rally are not closed to the public until Saturday and are therefore open to other road users so speed limits will be strictly enforced.
Registration will be open in September and will be limited to 10 cars, so if you are interested, book early to avoid disappointment.
For further details and to book your place, contact Ian Wright at firstname.lastname@example.org
RESULTS for the 2013 Rally of the Tall Pines are available at www.rallyscoring.com
We have an excellent VIP program which offers exclusive VIP only spectating areas, heated viewing tents, lunch and dinner with experienced competitors who will provide an insight into the world of rallying.
