2014 Cochrane Winter Rally

This event showcases how close Heritage Hills residents are to the beauty and excitement that is the Fallen Timber forestry area.

Starting in the picturesque town of Cochrane, the 2014 Cochrane Winter Rally will kick off Round 1 of the Western Canadian Rally Championship on March 8th.

The rally will be run in the forestry and oil roads in the familiar Fallen Timber forestry area. The timing of the rally provides road conditions that will be tricky and unpredictable. Gravel, snow, and lots of ice are virtually guaranteed. 

Reconnaissance or 'Recce', gives teams a chance to see the roads on the day before the event and make their own description of the stage. The ability to mark hazards and make a knowledgeable tire choice makes the event faster and safer for all participants.

With the level of interest in Rallying continuing to grow, the 2014 Cochrane Winter Rally is expecting a large and competitive field at this years event.

The 2014 Western Canada Rally Championship consists of the Cochrane Winter Rally, The Rocky Mountain Rally, Pacific Forest Rally, Kananaskis Rally and the Big White Rally.
