Rallye International Vert de Montreal (Sept. 28-30)

Hi everyone, this is an FIA event (equivalent to the one in Monte-Carlo) that happens every September in Montreal. It's quite different from the SMCC Economy Run in that only "alternative-fueled" cars may participate, and it's far more pricey (most teams are sponsored):

I've worked checkpoints twice for this event, and can vouch that it feels international-level with the accommodations, sponsors and booths. But I find that local Economy Run style events actually attract better drivers. A few years ago, a non-hybrid Civic of one of the cameramen actually got better economy than a hybrid competitor!

Anyway, if you can get sponsorship and can get by in French, it's worth checking out. I might be doing checkpoints again with the RFID system.
