Driver’s Wanted!

Are you coming to play this weekend at Events 12 & 13?  We’ll be having commentary provided over our FM broadcast, and we’d love to feature you!  The ERC is humbling requesting that any driver wishing to participate fill in the following Driver Profile, highlighting your skills, abilities, and best stories.

Are you a newbie?  Fill in one so we can get to know you better, even if your racing experience has been “trying to get to the Costco check out lane with no line before every soccer mom in the place gets there”.

We have both a print and write by hand option, or a fill in on your computer/device and print option.

2017 Membership Forms

Part of our Double Header promotions this weekend are our year end membership deals!  You have two options:

  1. Any current 2016 member will receive their membership for $60 ($20 discount).  Any family memberships will be an additional $45 per person living at the same address.
  2. Any participant for this weekend who is not a 2016 member can purchase their membership for 2017 ($80), and their 2017 membership will cover both of the events in this weekend’s double header (no daily membership required – saving you $40)

If you’d like to save yourself a little extra time in the registration line, please either print this form, fill it in and bring it with you.

If you would like to save a tree, this form is downloadable, so you can fill it in and return it to membership@edmontonrallyclub.ca.  You can then pay for your membership either on site or through the shop.

 

We are very excited to bring you this event.  Please stay tuned for further information, updates, etc. as the dates draw closer!

Rallycross Championship Event #9 — The Roadhouse Rallycross —

It is the Edmonton Rally Club’s extreme pleasure to present to you the Rallycross Championship Event #9 – The inaugural Roadhouse Rallycross!

With the weather forecast for the weekend being so unreliable, the board decided to find an alternate venue in order to ensure that we could run an event this weekend.  We are pleased to have partnered with Blackjacks Roadhouse in Nisku, AB to bring you this event.  We will be running RCC#9 in the large gravel parking lot to the west of Blackjacks.

Registration will open at 9:30.  Be sure to come down early to enjoy a spectacular breakfast at Blackjacks (not included in entry fee – sorry!).  Their food is awesome and well priced.

Don’t forget!  Bring a friend who hasn’t come out to Rallycross before and you get $20 off your entry, and your friend will get $20 off the next time that they join us!

Buy your entry here! Or at least pre-register, and pay on site.  We take cash, cheque, and credit (sorry, no debit at this time).

We failed to mention at the Banquet that Jeremy and Chuck Pifko won our early-bird prize, and both will receive a Northern Loon Shirt.  If you didn’t buy a shirt, and would still like to, there are some in the shop!

Rallycross!  

The ERC Rallycross Championship Event #6 takes place this Sunday, on July 17th.  We are very much looking forward to hosting this event.  You can now sign up on motorsportreg.com or in our shop.

The Edmonton Rally Club now takes credit card on site!

We will also have all our shirts, license plates, and decals on sale at the event.  Please see Kait to pick up your swag (and yes – you can use your credit card!).

Meeting Tonight!

There is a meeting tonight at the clubhouse.  Meeting starts at 6:30 pm, and they usually run until about 8:30 pm.  Meetings are open for anyone to join us.  So if you’re interested in participating in the decision making process, please join us!

Northern Loon Preliminary Results Changes!!

Due to multiple concerns over the conditions in the fifth regularity concerning the paving work on Hwy 620, and the lack of clarification of time allowance request process in either the drivers meeting or in the route book, we have decided that the most appropriate response is to negate the results from checkpoints 5.7, 5.8, and 5.9.

Trying to make up the lost time that some competitors experienced in that construction area would have been unsafe.

We take this change very seriously, and take full responsibility for the ensuing result changes.  We want to create as fair and level playing field as possible. Upon further review of these results, we feel that the conditions were not equal and were out of the competitors control.

Our apologies if this change resulted in a negative adjustment in your finishing position. We hope that you understand our reasoning, and that you feel as we do – that this was the only fair solution to the situation.

If you have any concerns or questions, please direct them to Mike Thorn at 587-988-9364 or myanth78@gmail.com.

Thank you again for participating!

Results – Preliminary V4
