2016 Loop Rally

The 2016 Loop Rally will be running overnight on September 24th and will be headed south of Calgary to explore the scenic Rocky Mountain Foothills.

This is a TSD or Naviational event, so we won't be travelling at warp speed, but due to the overnight schedule auxiliary lights would not do any harm.

There will be an informative Q&A Session (Novice School) for people new to TSD rallying from 16:00 to 17:00 in Nanton before the event.

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 challenging nature of the event.

We are aiming for approx 650 kilometres, with 30% paved roads and 70% gravel or all weather roads in Alberta and BC.

The Supps can be download here. The 2016 Loop will again travel south via the Porcupine Hills into the Pincher Creek and Crowsnest Pass area similar to previous years. There are still a couple of bridges out in the area but we will piece something interesting together as always.
