Day 3 is in the books. Per David's blog, up and on the road at 6:30AM; finally roll into the finish in Whitehorse at 10PM! No new pics but that's understandable. I've driven a 700 mile day (in the summer with sunshine) and didn't have time for pics then either.

Check out the No Alibi Rally put on by the same club in early June. Great event over a two day weekend. Not the same conditions (i.e. no snow) but lots of fine gravel roads and scenery. Starting pretty close to your location in the Tri-cities area. More information at http://www.rainierautosports.com/

I hate reviving threads but I had a moment of genius that I have to share.

If you go to the very bottom of the alcan5000 page you'll see the alcan5000 was won in 1986 with a Subaru RX 4x4.

The next alcan5000 winter rally is in 2016, the 30 year anniversary.....

I would think that if someone had an RX, Subaru would sponsor them to do the rally.

For the best chance at getting sponsored I would think the car would have to be mostly stock. and high miles would probably be a good thing.

It would be great publicity for Subaru "the worst engine we ever made, 30 yrs, and 300k miles later its still winning races, its what makes a subaru a subaru". Or something along those lines.


now I wonder who has a really nice RX and would rally... Turbone, got any ideas? :-p

I hope to one day run the alcan5000 with a lifted wagon, 2 foot snow drifts? yes please!
