For those elect­ing to skip the harsh el­e­ments, there is plan­ning to be done for the up­com­ing sea­son from both ad­min­is­tra­tive and com­pe­ti­tion per­spec­tives. Most of the At­lantic Re­gion Mo­tor Sports (ARMS) mem­ber clubs have al­ready had their AGMS. The prime top­ics of dis­cus­sion at most of these meet­ings were the lat­est rule changes from ASN Canada FIA, CARS and ARMS. Plan­ning for warmer weather Kart, Race, Rally & Solosport events is well un­der­way. There is a cal­en­dar of up­com­ing events on the ARMS web site at www.arm­sinc.ca which in­cludes all Re­gional events, while club events are added as they are con­firmed. There are Re­gional Cham­pi­onships in Race, Rally, Karting, Au­toslalom and Time At­tack.

The var­i­ous ARMS mem­ber clubs all have their own cham­pi­onships as well. More de­tailed event info is avail­able on the ARMS fo­rum and the club web sites.

Now that the cold weather events are wind­ing down, there are only a cou­ple of months left to get your cars and karts ready for what prom­ises to be a great sum­mer of com­pe­ti­tion.

See you at the track!

ell, here we are three months into 2017 and Rally com­pe­ti­tion is well un­der way with the eight event Bluenose Au­tosport Club (BAC) Ral­ly­cross Chal­lenge in full swing. The first event of the BAC Nav­i­ga­tional Rally se­ries and the first event in the four event BAC Rallysprint se­ries are in the books. The ral­ly­cross events are be­ing held at Sco­tia Speed World in the spec­ta­tor park­ing lot. Con­di­tions range from sunny and cold to rain to snow on sur­faces rang­ing from bare ground to snow cov­ered to sheer ice. For those brave enough to ven­ture out in the win­ter weather, it's a great way to get the per­for­mance rally ex­pe­ri­ence in a cost-con­trolled and fun at­mos­phere.
