Big White Rally

Come out and see performance rally teams in action during the 2017 Annual Big White Winter Rally!

There are lots of ways to spectate during the rally weekend!  You can see the cars and meet the teams at Parc Exposé and watch the Ceremonial Start, watch the mechanics in action at the Service Park, or, for true rally fans, you pack a lunch and dress warm to head out onto the forest stages to catch live rally action.

If you can’t make it out to the event, keep tabs on your favourite teams using the RallySafe live tracking system: Web App / iOS App / Android App

There is no charge for admission; bring as many people as you like. For everyone’s safety, we ask that pets stay home and that children be kept under close supervision at all times.  Please adhere to posted times and locations so that rally operations are not disrupted.
