More than 35 years ago motorsport fans organized the first performance rally in the Baie-des-Chaleurs, located on the southern coast of the Gaspé Peninsula in eastern Quebec. At that time, the Datsun 510, Toyota Celica and Triumph TR7 shared the honour of winning the “Rallye Baie des Chaleurs”.
Today, cars have changed. These are the Mitsubishi Evo’s, Subaru WRX & STI and Volkswagen Golf all vying to win the 200 Km of the stages that make the rally today. This year the rally entrants are participating in the Canadian Rally Championship, The Ontario Performance Rally Championship, The Eastern Canadian Rally Championship, The North American Rally Cup and the NACAM Rally Championship.
