Loop Rally

2012 Loop Rally


The 2012 Loop Rally is running overnight on September 22-23rd and will be headed south of Calgary to explore the scenic Rocky Mountains.

This is a TSD, so we won't be travelling at warp speed, but some auxiluary lights would not do any harm.

There will be an informative Q&A Session (Novice School) for people new to TSD rallying from 19:00 to 20:30 on Thursday Sept 20th at the CSCC clubhouse.

The rally will use straight-forward navigation in a Regularity / Monte Carlo format, including challenging driving sections. Some driving proficiency will be required due to the night schedule and the nature of the event.

Total distance will be approx 750 kilometers, with 25% paved roads and 75% gravel or all weather roads.

Sunday September 23rd - Preliminary Results

Before I hit the hay here are the preliminary results. Please take a look and email me with any corrections. The only issues I see could be a couple of wrong start times in the regs with the 2-5 minute dust windows (6, 7, 8 and 9).

Thanks again everyone!
