The Thunderbird Rally is a winter driving adventure through snow and ice covered back roads in the British Columbia interior.  Following the Thunderbird route is simple, but staying out of the snow banks is not. This event is suitable for ordinary road cars.  There are classes for Historic cars, Novice teams and different levels of navigation equipment.  Enjoy friendly competition with teams from BC, Alaska, Alberta, Washington, Oregon and beyond
