Supp Regs (pdf)

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.

Thunderbird Team Prize

In the grand tradition of 1960's rallying, Savoia Aero SA (a division of D.E.R. International) sponsored the establishment of an annual Team Trophy for the Thunderbird Rally. A Team is defined as three to six entries, of differing classes (span at least two classes and no more than two in one class) and should include a novice team. All teams with or without a Novice class entry shall be scored by one of the following means: by averaging a Novice score factor (average of all novice scores for the event) or the actual score of their novice team member (which ever method is more beneficial for the team score). Teams may be declared up to the close of registration. There is no additional fee for registering a team. Teams are strongly encouraged to display their team name and/or logo on the team vehicles, using professional-looking and tasteful decals. Each entry on a team will be given a score factor, which is the ratio of their score to the winning score in their class. The winning team will be the one with the lowest average score factor. The designated team captain will be awarded the perpetual trophy and if given, a cash prize of $100.
