Well, the time has finally come. After 5 hours of editing, and being interrupted to cook a barbecue dinner... 56K BEWARE.
After getting lost in the wrong part of the Lanark highlands, I decided to set my self in gear and take off to the proper spectator area, with an unreliable navigation system in tow. Once there, I met up with a couple of the Ottawa guys, (namely WhiskeyGolf and BigBossyBoss) Stephen the Canuck came all the way from Whitby, and we had a blast. I was surprised that people used Eagle Talons and Nissan S-Chassis cars for rallies, among the flock of Subarus. Spectating rallies is usually free, and well worth watching each time, because of these oddballs.
Some cars that were at the Rallye Perce-Neige back in February were also there, notably Kurt Thiel and Russel Norton’s VW GTI, which has transformed quite a bit since last year’s rally, as seen below, the car was sporting a new paintjob.
(fun fact: I almost deleted these photos without looking at them)
..and in the factory burgundy here:
Seriously, go watch your local rally. It is fun, and it tests your navigational skills.
