Fans can get up close to the cars in the service areas and catch all of the action from specially designated spectator points located at the best spots on the route with competitors often reaching speeds of well over 160 kph.The Canadian Association of Rallysport (CARS) is the official sanctioning body for rallying in Canada and the premier rally series, the Canadian Rally Championship (CRC), comprising of six events across the country, spanning from the shores of the Atlantic Ocean in New Richmond, Quebec to the mountains of Merritt, British Columbia.

Caught some of the Rocky Mountain Rally on TV yesterday! GREAT! Do you know how I can get the video? I only have a PVR now and have no idea how I can save it to a disk etc. It would be nice to play at the banquet :)

Thank you for the congrats/posts...they are certainly appreciated. Both Rocky and Baie are definitely experiences that we will remember for a very long time. In regards to the TV broadcasts...Rocky is available at http://www.racing-underground.com or I can obtain a DVD from the TV2Go crew if you'd like...just let me know. As for Baie...with everything that went down at the event, it is sure to be a spectacular broadcast when it airs on August 8th.In the meantime, the CARS & Mitsubishi post-event press releases are available at http://www.carsrally.ca and http://www.motorsport.com/news/article.asp?ID=376164&FS=CRC and here are some picture links that portray some of what took place:http://www.worldrallysport.com/node/6516http://www.worldrallysport.com/node/6518http://www.worldrallysport.com/node/6520With a few tidbits:Posted ImagePosted ImagePosted Image

The 3rd round of the Canadian Rally Championship, Rallye Baie-Des-Chaleurs, which was held a month ago in Quebec (on the Atlantic coast) is being broadcast on TSN on August 8th at 10:30am, 1pm, 11:30pm (Central times) and will also be available for viewing at http://www.flatovercrest.com shortly thereafter. In the meantime, here are some additional videos that portray some of what took place:

With exception of hitting a bridge guardrail and taking-out the left rear taillight/corner, we were a lot better off than most of the others that did finish. Nevertheless, the car did take a thrashing with the extremely rough stages:http://www.unsitevraimentbeau.com/danielouellet/bdc_10/121_a4_14.aviFinally, while scouring the net following the event, I came across a few cool videos of us from last September, which will give you a good idea how crazy the Quebec fans are :)http://www.unsitevraimentbeau.com/danielouellet/ste-agathe_09/065_e1_19.avihttp://www.unsitevraimentbeau.com/danielouellet/ste-agathe_09/161_e3_19.avi
