The Organising Team


Starting in the picturesque town of Cochrane, the 2011 Cochrane Winter Rally will kick off Round 1 of the Western Canadian Rally Championship.


Hardy Schmidtke / John Hall
1st Overall 2010 - 02 Subaru Impreza WRX

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.


Tony Penny / Christa Monasch
2nd Overall 2010 - Volkswagen Golf

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 2011 Cochrane Winter Rally is expecting a large and competitive field at this years event.


Mark Lea-Wilson / Matt Vincent
3rd Overall 2010 - Eagle Talon

The 2011 Western Canada Rally Championship consists of the Cochrane Winter Rally, The Rocky Mountain Rally, Mountain Trials 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. In other words, 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 practises 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.
