Scott’s Solo report
I will make this report like our season: Short, and thrown together in a rush. In no time at all we went from planning the HPDS to wondering if there would even be motorsports in 2020. Unfortunately, we never did get a chance to hold the HPDS, but thanks to some relaxed government restrictions in August we were able to hold 3 slalom events at shearwater.
I’d like to thank everyone who came out to an event this year and put up with the extra restrictions. As well I’d like to thank the timing & scoring crew of Pidge and Cathy who put up with me trying to run pre-registration only events that never quite worked out that way.
With no points championship, we have no trophies to award, so that makes this a quick report. ASCC is planning a full solosport calendar for next year and I hope we can see it happen.
Proposed Slalom Dates :
May 15 Church?
June 12 Shearwater
June 23 Scotia Speed world
July 2 Digby Test and Tune

Ian’s Rally Report
The 2020 season started strongly for Rally in the Atlantic Region. ASCC hosted its annual Rally of the Midwinter Moon the 18th January. 12 teams and numerous club members volunteered their time to run the event. A good time was had by all.
Sister club BAC continued their Rally X series, in which ASCC members figured regularly.
The summer was gearing up for a strong season, when March hit. All aspects of life, including motorsport became curtailed with the Covid-19 Pandemic.
The season did manage to get one more Navex Rally completed in October, with safety precautions in place, run by BAC.
The entire Performance Rally Calendar ended up cancelled, along with every National Event save for Pierce Neige. The Canadian Championship will not be awarded for 2020.
The organizers for 2021 Midwinter Moon have put the event on hold, simply due to restrictions in place due to the Pandemic. Tentative performance dates are June 5th Rallysprint, Aug 7/8 Lookoff Rally, Sept12/13th Trout Lake Rally. BAC will attempt the New Scotland Road Rally (a long-distance touring style Navex) on the 26/27th weekend of June.
Like most of the community, we look forward to a return to some semblance of normal in 2021.
James Whitman is the treasurer now
