THE 2017 RALLY OF THE TALL PINES WILL TAKE PLACE ON NOVEMBER 24/25.
Just imagine if you took a small car, gave it four-wheel-drive, turbocharged it to over 300 horsepower, and then drove it flat-out sideways down twisty treacherous forest roads – lined with trees, rocks and cheering fans. Kicking up dirt or snow, spitting flames. Sliding on the edge of control, and sometimes over it! This is rally racing at the Rally of the Tall Pines and it is taking the world by storm.
The Rally of the Tall Pines (24- 25 Nov. 2017) is dedicated to bringing you even more explosive competition this year! You won’t want to miss round six of the Canadian Rally Championship this coming November. Being just over 2 hours from Toronto, this event is your best opportunity to see and experience what the extreme sport of Performance Rally Racing is all about.
COMPETITORS PLEASE NOTE THAT THE ENGLISH SUPPLEMENTARY REGULATIONS FOR 2017 HAVE BEEN POSTED UNDER THE “COMPETE” TAB. FRENCH SUPPLEMENTARY REGULATIONS HAVE ALSO BEEN POSTED. ENTRIES ARE NOW OPEN.
THANKS TO ALL OUR COMPETITORS, OUR 200+ VOLUNTEERS AND THE THOUSANDS OF SPECTATORS FOR MAKING THE 2016 RALLY A GREAT EVENT. The 2016 rally is now in the record books with a very impressive overall win by Antoine and Darren over Travis and Robbie and a great 3rd place from last years winning co-driver turned driver, Simon Vincent and his co-driver Hubert Gaudreau. Detailed results and the other winners, can be seen on the “Results” tab on this website. We look forward to seeing you all at the 2017 Rally of the Tall Pines.
