Rising Phoenix like from 2015, the Organizing Team would like to welcome you to the 2016 Galway Cavendish Forest Rally

The GCFR is proud and pleased to be included as the third event in the 2016 Ontario Performance Rally Championship and, excitingly, the fourth event in the Eastern Canadian Rally Championship.  For those who are unfamiliar with this new championship, check out the website at:


As you can see, in spite of there being no cost to enter the championship, there are substantial cash awards to be won.

This year we’re doing our best to keep the costs to compete under control.  By having zero transits on open roads, we’re able to allow unlicenced and uninsured vehicles to enter and compete, hopefully encouraging some of those older cars out of storage and back into competition.

We’ve also forgone the customary banquet.  While this was a difficult decision, being most popular as a reward for the many workers, it was an additional way we could cut the costs to the competitors.    Please be sure to thank the workers as the event cannot run without their dedication.  If any teams have any ‘swag’ or other items to give the volunteers, it would be gratefully received.

Differing from previous years, the plan is to drop the Quarry stage along with the rougher parts of Loom Lake.  This will provide us with the fantastic Fire Access portion with its wide smooth generally flowing roadway and, additionally, four km of the more technical Loom Lake portion of the Fire Access Road
