i know i know it isn't wheeling but it was still a blast [36]
it was up at Big White.. i would have got more pics of the village and what not but the rally boys pulled out the beer and i cant really remember the rest of the night... but the next day we were racing in a gravel parking lot... (well snow/ice) we're trying to get more rallycross down here but we're having troubles finding open land to race on, anyone can do this all they need is a car and a helmet..

heres a few pics

the pic of the bike reminded of that guy that was driving his motorbike across canada a few years ago. there is no law that says you can.(just brains) when he got to sicamous there was over a foot of fresh snow that day. wonder if he made it to the other side of the country?

the toe truck was just sitting there watching the race... he already had his fun pulling out a car out of the ditch and a pickup lol

check out www.rallybc.com theres always good info on there about it.. if the lakes freeze some more in ashcroft there will be another race ontop of barnes lake.. oh another website would be www.carsonice.ca (i believe)

I had a look around on the website but I couldn't find any info on rules or classes or anything I have always been very interested in rally racing. Do you have to have a full roll cage to compete? Is there different classes for Fwd,Rwd,Awd, engine size etc.?

this website should have most of your questions... what kind a rally are u thinking of doing? full out stage rally like the ones held in merrit or little tsd or rallycross? all depends

stage rally u need a cage and safety equipment
tsd rallys an rallycross you just need the basic equipment and first aid kit and what not

my other car that i have is for stage, it has a full roll cage, bucket seats, 5 point harness, the works... there is different classes 2WD, AWD, it all depends on your engine size too..

Actually it wasn't too bad. It was a easier and faster going up. lol
Thanks for the pic nobody seem to believe that I was up there. lol
Oh, and the cop that pulled me over for speeding around a corner on the way up said the same thing. lol

I'm not really interested in the TSD but the rally cross would be awesome I couldn't find a list of those events do you know where one is?

*edit*I was looking at the calendar is there only the three rally cross events a year?

right now we're trying to find land to race on but its hard, everyone wants money... money that rally doesn't have.. we found an old air base in the states that we're trying to get ahold of, but other then that theres not much out there just the 3 races.. even this kelowna run was the first ever

rallycross is the best thing to get ppls attention.. cheap, fun, and anyone can do it.. hell you could even compete your truck (if you wanted to), it doesn't have to be cars
