Welcome, this is a notice for the change of location, date and format for the Calgary Sports Car Club (CSCC) autumn rally and the 4th round of the Western Canadian Rally Championship. As you are aware the Kananaskis Rally was moved in 2013 to Radium BC because of the damage caused to the roads by the flood that year. There was always an understanding that the event would be brought back to Kananaskis Country as and when the roads were repaired. Well that has been done.
The rally will now take place on the 6th November 2016 in Kananaskis Country, Alberta. We have moved it away from the long weekend to allow family time as well as rally time. It also reduces the impact to other users in the immediate area. This year’s Kananaskis Rally will be a departure from the rallies held before, we have made this a true 1day rally, with registration, tech and recce in the morning and the rally being held in the afternoon. This is being done in an effort to reduce the costs involved with rallying in Western Canada, e.g. fuel and hotel costs. It also aids attracting the volunteers to come and help with the event management, as most volunteers can come to the rally and be home the same day.
Given that we are doing a 1 day event we have looked for best use of the roads, and as such we will only be using Powderface Trail, the road is looking fantastic.
One Day: 6th November 2016

Spectator Area 2: Memorial Hairpin and Finish (South Access)
Parking at this location is controlled but cars will be allowed movement in/out after the last car starts SS2
Directions (approx 1 h 15 min drive)

If you wish to use the Spectator 2 parking area then your car will need to be in place 1 hour prior to the first car starting the stage as the road will be closed to all non-rally traffic at 11:47. If you are later than this time you will be able to park at the side of the road before the road closure takes effect and walk in to the spectator area this would be approx. 0.8km. There will be a 15-20 minute period after the last car has started SS2 for spectators to arrive and depart from the parking area prior to the start of stage 3.
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:
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.
