This is why one joins an auto club :)

Take a trip into the past and the names of Luck and Green might come to mind.  While the former was a member (and founder) of St LAC, the two later combined efforts to create what is now known as CASC.  And it was the son of Mr. Green who contacted our club seeking help in securing a parts list and additional how-to information to assist with the reconstruction of a Weber carb for his custom Porsche 356.

After securing the help he needed this former sponsor told me that our efforts went a long way to assuaging the worn-down and frazzled feelings of someone who paid $18,000 US to have a motor brought back to life only to find that something wasn’t right.  He now knows what a venturi is and how to replace it in the aforementioned carburetor.  Ain’t club-life grand?!

Get yer Rally on here!

So, you wanna be a rally car driver, huh?  Why not!  You’ll get to meet new people.

Meet new people!

No one will mind where you wash your car.

And parking is never a problem.

RSO has released the schedule for this year:

  • PMSC – Rallycross #5
    September 14, 2019
    Burnt River Off Road Vehicle Facility, 476 Ledge Hill Rd, Burnt River, ON K0M 1C0, Canada
    See more details

  • CRC – Pacific Forest Rally
    September 26, 2019 – September 27, 2019 @
    Merritt, BC, Canada

  • MLRC – Rallycross #4
    September 29, 2019
    Bancroft Fish & Game Club, 27602 ON-62, Bancroft, ON K0L, Canada
    See more details

    There are many ways to get involved with rallysport – navigational rallies, performance rallies and rally cross. Or volunteer at any of the events; some performance events have over 200 volunteers helping! Being a volunteer at the performance events can get you up close to the action, and gives you insight into how the events run. Interested in exploring the province? Helping at a navigational rally will take you to some places you never imagined. 

    Or just jump in to Navigational (or TSD) rallies. They’re the cheapest and easiest way to get started. A regular road-worthy vehicle (car, pickup truck, minivan), a willing partner, some basic tools (calculator, digital timepiece, pencils) and you’re on your way. There’s always a basic introduction before every rally.

    Performance rallies require more of an investment, but the rewards are great! Two people working together to go as fast as they can on a closed road.

    Rallycross lets you get a taste of performance rallying at a fraction of the cost. Take your daily driver, plop on a helmet, and have a go at a short dirt and gravel course.

The Union Autofest

St LAC was out in force at this year’s edition of the Union Autofest held at Innovation Park.  This year marked the 4th edition and turn out was as strong as ever.  Our presence didn’t go unnoticed and we had no shortage of visitors.  Craig Alder’s ‘Wide trackin” Pontiac Solstice.  If you’re not familiar with the Autofest, here’s all that you need know:

The Union” Autofest stems from the idea of a united Canadian car culture coming from all walks of life in the automotive world, without limitation to a certain make, model, or type of vehicle.  We expect cars, bikes, and trucks from all over the province and beyond to come together in one central location…Kingston, Ontario on September 7th 2019, for an awesome day full of seeing some of the provinces best project cars!

We had our tent and three cars.  Perhaps next year there’ll be more.

I’m for sale. Call Danby.
