Kettle Valley Rally 2019
June 22nd Lake Country, BC
Want to Rally?
Kettle Valley TSD Rally is a summer driving adventure that takes you and a navigator on an exciting, one- of-a-kind, scenic drive through hidden back-country roads in and around the beautiful Okanagan BC region. It’s a great way to experience new thrills, meet new friends and learn what it’s like to participate in a real rally; all within a safe and friendly environment on a leisurely Saturday afternoon drive.
This is the 2nd annual KVR, after the inaugural event in 2018 that replaced the Heart of Darkness All-night TSD Rally. It will serve as Round 2 of the BC TSD Rally Championship sanctioned by the Canadian Association of Rallysport (CARS) and by Rally Pacific Motorsports (RPM) and therefore follows the current BC TSD Rally Regulations (rev. 2017), which are posted on www.rallyinterior.ca, and the CARS General Competition Rules. Being very much a new Rally in BC, many of the routes offer new experiences for both novices & veterans alike. The rally runs on straight forward instructions and will be approx. 700km long, entirely within the province of BC. Roads will be about 25% pavement, 75% gravel. Instructions are provided in km, and the official measurements and calculations are based on the km figures.
Registration is open to anyone and all experience levels. No prior TSD rally experience needed and no special vehicles are required; Any street legal car or truck is acceptable. If you have a valid driver’s license, a navigator, some safety equipment (see below) and a road-worthy vehicle you’re comfortable driving on gravel roads, you can join in the fun.
