Big White Rally

Come out and see performance rally teams in action during the 8th Annual Big White Winter Rally!

There are lots of ways to spectate during the rally weekend: see the cars on display at Parc Exposé and the Ceremonial Start, being put back together for more competition in the Service Park, or, for true rally fans, pack a lunch and dress warm to head out onto the forest stages and watch the rally cars slide around tight corners and skip between snowbanks.

New for 2016: If you can’t make it out to the event, keep tabs on your favourite teams using RallySafe! 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 control at all times.
