Big White Rally

Spectating at the 2021 Big White Winter Rally will be limited or possibly unavailable depending on public health orders.  Please watch this page for updates.

Spectating Archives

There are lots of ways to spectate during the rally weekend!  You can see the cars and meet the teams at Parc Exposé, 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. 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.

When you are parking your car, please turn it around to face the direction you are leaving in. This will make the end of the day easier for everyone. When parking on a forestry road, make sure you leave enough room for emergency vehicles to make it through if needed.
