Yup, we will be using the short 5km stage that we have used for both the Kananaskis and Rocky Mountain rallies. Its off HWY68 in K Country. If anyone wants to come see, volunteer and have a ride along in any of the cars at the end of the day you are all welcome. From HWY1 take Exit 143 AB68-S and follow the road for about 18km we will be using the roads to the south of the road, I'm sure the organisor will have some sort of signage out to aid spectators. It's only about an hour West from Calgary. Hope to see you there.

i love that truck, it is a sight to be hold seeing it at flat chat on stage!



I would rather drive a slow car fast as a fast car slow!

I would love to play with something like that up here, but I'm a little shy of the $40k.....

Yeah... I thought it was a hell of an entry fee too.

We had a bit of a test day last weekend, thanks to Mr Morison, and 14 cars came out to play. I thought I'd put this up to just show the beast.

Nope this is the sweep truck, and it's quicker on stage!!

The tyres are pretty good, just trying different pressures to get the best out of them. Really predictable with the way they behave.
