Lincoln Electric Rally of the Tall Pines, Bancroft ON


November 20-21, 2020

We have made the difficult decision to cancel this year's rally. We worked very hard to come up with ways to keep our competitors, volunteers, and, most importantly, the residents of Bancroft safe, but we finally came to the decision that there was too much to surmount. 
But we will see you next year for the 50th running! Mark November 19-20, 2021 on your calendars!

Our apologies - we tried the best we could.


The Lincoln Electric Rally of the Tall Pines, Bancroft, ON is coming! We are proud to return to the hospitality of Bancroft for the 50th running of this historic event. We welcome back our Title Sponsor, Lincoln Electric, and event sponsor, Pirelli.
There will be many changes this year due to the health crisis, not the least of which is that there will be no spectator areas, and no spectators will be allowed at HQ. The VIP program is on hold, and there will not be a banquet. 

Our Partners

The rally wouldn’t happen without the permission and cooperation of the Town of Bancroft and the five surrounding townships and municipalities. Many thanks to them and the residents for letting us use their roads.

Lincoln Electric is proud to be the title sponsor of the 50th running of the Rally of the Tall Pines. The event is part of the 2020 Canadian Rally Championship series and is also part of the Ontario Performance Rally Championship and the Eastern Canadian Rally Championships. In fact, the rally will comprise two separate OPRC events.

There are a number of significant changes to the running of Tall Pines this year. Lower Entry Fees - approximately $200 less than previous years, both National and Regional; remote registration - all documentation must be submitted prior to arrival at the rally; limited team members - maximum of four members per team - driver, codriver, and up to two others; remote fuel - there is one remote fuel in the second half of the rally. More details will be available in the supp regs when posted.


To abide by provincial regulations, there are no spectators allowed at HQ, and there are no spectator areas. The rally is closed except to competitors and volunteers. 

VIP Program 

There will not be a VIP program this year.


Photographers will have access to the rally by invitation only.  


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.


Our returning sponsors help make this happen.
A huge thanks to Lincoln Electric, back for a fourth year, as well as, Pirelli, a major sponsor of the rally, committing for 5 years.

Our local sponsors deserve our thanks and our support.
