2017 Cochrane Winter Rally

Welcome to the Calgary Sports Car Clubs first performance stage rally of the year. The event is a qualifying round for all the major local Championships. So please don’t delay in sending your entry as there are only 30 entries available.

The service park and volunteer appreciation banquet will again be at Camp Kindle, a children’s camp operated by the Kids Cancer Care charity.

For those looking to cut travel time to the service park on Sunday, there are accommodations available at camp kindle. Bring your own bedding and expect shared bathrooms, but at $65 per person, including breakfast, it isn’t a bad deal at all. Best of all, the money goes to support the charity!

We look forward to sharing a great rally weekend with everyone.

The Organising Team

Starting in the picturesque town of Cochrane, the Cochrane Winter Rally will kick off Round 1 of the Western Canadian Rally Championship.


Boris Djordjevic / Leanne Junnila
1st Overall 2016 - 2008 Mitsubishi Lancer EVO X

The rally will be run in the forestry and oil roads in the familiar Fallen Timber forestry area. The timing of the rally provides road conditions that will be tricky and unpredictable. Gravel, snow, and lots of ice are virtually guaranteed.


Maris Neiksans / Anrijs Jesse
2nd Overall 2016 - 2005 Mitsubishi EVO 8

Reconnaissance or 'Recce', gives teams a chance to see the roads on the day before the event and make their own description of the stage. The ability to mark hazards and make a knowledgeable tire choice makes the event faster and safer for all participants.

With the level of interest in Rallying continuing to grow, the 2017 Cochrane Winter Rally is expecting a large and competitive field at this year's event.


Roger Sieber / Garrett Mealing
3rd Overall 2016 - 2004 Subaru WRX

The 2017 Western Canada Rally Championship consists of the Cochrane Winter Rally, The Rocky Mountain Rally, Pacific Forest Rally, Kananaskis Rally and the Big White Rally.

Volunteer Information

One of the best ways to get into rallying and learn how and what to do is to volunteer to help out at an event.

There are many positions available, most not requiring any special knowledge (we'll teach you anyway). From the registration table to timing controls and spectator control.

Volunteers are needed:

To help with competitor registration.
To help with technical inspection of rally cars.
To help with rally equipment for the event - signage, marking off stage areas, etc.
To operate time controls - timing cars at stage starts, stage finishes and into the service parks.
To secure the roads - ensuring that roads leading onto the stages are secure. The "best seats in the house to see the action"
To host sponsor and media representatives.
To help with spectator safety - marshals who ensure that spectators remain in the designated viewing locations and stay safe.
To monitor service parks for safe practices and to ensure that spectators are not too close to competitor cars during service.

Some positions need specialist skills. People with qualifications as amateur radio operators, emergency medical technicians, and advanced first aid are critical for event safety and security.
