You need to know:
Ontario is blessed with many "No Winter Maintenance" roads that have stunning elevation changes, challenging cambered curves and a lack of residents during winter time. For that reason, many towns don't bother to send snowploughs out to these roads during the winter, and just groom them nicely come spring. These roads are a favourite of drivers for their smooth and fun driving nature and that's why we've strung together some of the best this province has to offer. All of these roads are easily passable by road-going sedans, coupes, minivans, SUV's ... whatever you drive to work can safely do this rally.
What to expect:
Why not show you videos of a couple of the roads? To make sure that all of the roads are easily passable by all vehicles, we take a low sports car on bald Toyo track tires and send it out to test the route. If this car can do it, we know you can do it in the minivan. Note how smooth the gravel roads are! This is a perfect weekend drive for a Miata or a Jeep!
Where to go:
We're hosting this rally out of the Flying Spatula restaurant in Flesherton Ontario, formerly known as the Grey 4 Diner, a short drive northwest of Toronto. 125 Collingwood, Flesherton, Ontario, N0C 1E0. Phone: 519-924-2424. They make a great country breakfast, so come hungry! Google Map: http://g.co/maps/7r2wu
When to be there:
Saturday, October 1st 2011, registration opens at 9:00am, and the first car is off at 11:00am. Don't be later than 10:00am! If you are new to rally, we'll be offering a quick "introduction" to the type of route instructions we'll be giving you beforehand. The novice instructions are oriented toward keeping everyone on route and enjoying the drive. See the bottom of this page for more beginner resources. The rally is approximately 250km long and will be held in two legs with a rest break for a snack. You should be back at The Flying Spatula before 5:00pm.
What do I need:
A driver and a navigator, bring your ownership and insurance certificate to registration, a pen and a watch that shows seconds. If you don't own the vehicle, you'll need a letter of permission from the owner granting you permission to use it in our road rally.
If you register by September 26th, we'll only ask you for $45 which includes a snack during the rest break and stunning trophies if you earn one! We'd like you to register in advance so that we know how many people to expect, but you can just show up the morning of. Registration at the event is $50 per car.

You will need to know Tulip Instructions, Giant Tulips, Columnar instructions, and how to find your way on a map that we provide. We may have a different style that will be explained at the meeting before the rally. Find those resources here: http://www.torontoautosportclub.ca/a...ter/index.html
