Lincoln Electric is proud to be the title sponsor of the 49th running of the Rally of the Tall Pines. The event is the seventh event in the 2019 Canadian Rally Championship series and is also part of the Ontario Performance Rally Championship and the Eastern Canadian Rally Championships.

Less that 3 hours from Toronto or Ottawa, Bancroft is host to some of the best teams from Canada and beyond. With two new stages to challenge the teams, this will be a test of skill and endurance and a battle to overcome the always unpredictable elements. The route this year covers a little more area, but features a new stage in Hastings Highlands, to the north of Bancroft. There is no special spectator stage this year.


On Saturday, from 8.00 a.m. to 4.00 p.m. and from 7.30 p.m. to the rally finish, our media partners will be broadcasting the rally live. Check out the link at



Some new spectating information has now been posted to the Spectate section for this year's event. Check it out! Free Spectator Guides will be available at Rally Headquarters (Dungannon Rec Centre in L’Amable) all during  Rally Weekend.

VIP Program - Registration for the VIP Program for 2019 has now closed.

The Tall Pines VIP program is one of the best, with many people returning year after year. Luxury coach buses, exclusive viewing points, knowledgeable hosts, a great dinner - an excellent way to take in the rally. All for $199. Spots are filling up fast. Sign up today.
Competitors - the VIP program is a great way to thank your sponsors (or to bring in a sponsor!).


With a highly experienced core committee at the helm, Rally of the Tall Pines is one of the best run rallies in North America. But it wouldn't happen without the lifeblood of the rally, the more than 200 volunteers who come out and make it all appear seamless. Join us as a volunteer and get up close to the action.


FIVE new documents have now been posted to the Volunteer Info Centre section under Volunteer Documents, pertaining to this year’s event. Please familiarize yourself with these documents, prior to the event. Feel free to download what you need. This should now be everything you need to look at, prior to the event. Thanks for helping out!
