Supplementary Regulations have been posted at:

http://www.bluenoseautosport.ca/2015Laf ... ppRegs.pdf

But here are the quick and dirty details:

Cost: 150$

Eligibility:
Both driver and co-driver must be a member of an ARMS affiliated club in order to
enter BAC performance rally events.

See CARS GCRs&NRRs Book Section 29 (pg 104) for Car prep requirements.

Route
A single 5km stage that will be run 3 times in each direction. The schedule has been arranged to allow cars to run multiple drivers!

How to Get There
The road is located on Rte 236. Stay to the right at the intersection of Rte 236 and 354 in Kennetcook (when entering the intersection from Rte 354), travel about 17km and the road is on the left. It will be marked with Yellow Rally Signs as there is no road sign at the entrance.

Recce
Competitors may recce from 1pm to 5pm on July 11th, or from 8am to 10am on July 12th. This road is trafficked by ATVers/Dirt Bikes and two way rally traffic so recce with caution. You will be penelized if you do not follow recce rules (see Supp Regs).

Schedule
MTC/Service opens at 10am.

Registration opens at 10:30am.

Driver's meeting begins at 11:30am.

Car 0 starts at 12:00pm and finishes at 4:00pm.

There will be no spectators permitted at the event, HOWEVER.... we will need volunteers... *hint hint*. There are some roads that require blocking so if you want to see the action, we will need your help too.



So who is coming?!

I have just moved to Nova Scotia from Ontario and will be happy to come out and help.

I have been involved with Ontario Regional and National events as a volunteer or competitor for the last 6 years so I have some experience.

But, if someone is looking for an experienced co-driver....

Thanks to all organizers, volunteers and everyone who helped make this go off! Nice little piece of new road! I'm not sure our stock suspension agrees, but I think they decided life wasn't worth living anymore sometime around Stage 4. Looking forward to getting our Rally Suspension back for next month's Lookoff Rally! There's something do those 'Because Stock Sucks!' bumper stickers! :)

Thanks to our Sponsors at Rally-Tech and Great North Performance for their help in getting us to and keeping us on the stages!

Thanks for the pictures, Harold!

Wow our car had a lot of nose dive. No surprise that our fenders aren't quite shaped the same way anymore. :)

Thanks for the note of appreciation. But you undoubtedly noticed that the colour is off. Mistake #1 was that although I thought I had changed the "Quality" setting to JPEG L only, I forgot to "confirm" the change and as a result, the RAW files got recorded anyway. Mistake #2 was to 'take advantage' of having the RAW files, and use Lightroom to process the files. I should know better, as I can never get the colour or brightness right in Lightroom. The program takes over the whole screen and as a result I have no colour or brightness reference except for medium gray. Mistake #3 was to export the files with conversion to sRGB. I should know better by now! I have learned before not to do any of these things! Doing things in Lightroom is, for me, approximate only. I always have to do final adjustments in Photoshop.

You are right about your car having significant dive. I noticed that at the approach to the very first turn. I could see every stab at the brakes.

- Harold

Our Stage 3. Not our fastest stage but one of the more entertaining. A few turns into the stage the front of some of our underbody protection takes an impact and drags for the rest of the stage making a HORRIBLE distracting noise. Sounds like the car is flying apart and we have no idea how bad it is. Press on regardless though! The problem was self-resolving as more and more of the skidplate was left behind on the stage. :)

Check out the yump at 1:03. Like I said, horrible distracting noise.
