    Default 2012 Cochrane Image Auto Body Winter Rally

    The first round of the Western Canada Rally Championship, the Cochrane Image Auto Body Winter Rally based out of Cochrane, Alberta is coming up!



    This event is going to be one of the ones to definitely be at this year in the regional series. Low amounts of snowfall and warm weather will mean a mostly gravel rally with icy patches, guaranteed to be a high pucker factor event! On top of that, drivers from all over Alberta, British Columbia, and Saskatchewan will be competing in some serious equipment, teams like:

    Max Riddle (winner of the 2011 WCRC, overall novice champion both regionally and in Canada nationally, open class 2005 STi)
    http://www.cscc.ab.ca/kananaskis/profiles.htm#maxriddle

    Hardy Schmidtke (three time WCRC champion, competing in a new to him Evo 8.5)
    http://www.cscc.ab.ca/kananaskis/profiles.htm#hardyboy

    Graham Bruce (3rd place overall in the 2011 WCRC, a beautifully prepped 2007 STi from the US)

    J.C Bourgeois (a 2006 STi, immaculate prep work!)
    http://www.cscc.ab.ca/kananaskis/profiles.htm#neverlift

    Johnny Summers (a JDM imported STi with a USDM drivetrain swap, beautiful build)
    http://johnnysummersracing.com/

    All of these competitors have what it takes to be on the podium, with Max Riddle having a target squarely on his back after having won the championship last year.

    For more information, you can visit:

    www.cochranerally.ca

    or the facebook page:

    If you want to get in on the action, a great way is to volunteer! There are many placements that need to be filled, from manning chicanes to running start and finish controls. For more information, you can contact myself ([email protected]) or [email protected]

    Is a competition license required, or just a CSCC membership?

    When does ARCA hold their school/licensing this year, and where now that Race City is gone?

    Hey Sentry, this should be considered "pro" rally, as in a full competition licence and vehicle modifications (such as a cage built to FIA specs) are required. This event does not deal with ARCA or Race City. If you haven't been, the CSCC runs some excellent rally-x programs which are a great way to get acquainted with the scene.

    If you are interested in getting into rallying, some websites with good info are:

    www.carsrally.ca (the national sanctioning body which overseas all rallying in Canada)

    www.rallywest.com (the regional sanctioning body for SK, AB, and BC)

    www.specialstage.com (a "north american" based rally forum, one of only a few that is not tailored to a specific club or organization)

    Of course, you could also come out to a test day that is happening March 4th (also based out of Cochrane) to meet everyone/the teams, or even better volunteer at the event itself which is great exposure
