History of the Rocky Mountain Rally
This quote from Ian McArthurs ‘Early Years’ story is how it all started … it took until 1973, to put it in place.
In 1968 a few of us started thinking seriously about what to do. We came up with three main principles for devising the ‘Great Canadian Adventure’ in the Rocky Mountains. First, the rally had to be difficult and challenging to the driver, the navigator and the car. Second, the route had to really go somewhere. Third, the rally had to create a character of its own to develop a reputation and a following over time.
