ASCC 2023 Slalom Review
Being informed early in the season that Camp Aldershot was no longer able to host us; our season was shortened to the following events:
13 May – Stoneridge Fellowship
21 June – Scotia Speedworld
30 June to 2July – Digby Airfield
12 July – Scotia Speedworld
29 July – Stoneridge Fellowship
Though our total seat time for the year was not very high, we were able to successfully hold two slalom schools. The first being in the morning of 13 May at StoneRidge. With tight timings, we were able to get all of the brand new drivers making their arcs in the right direction, while the remaining of the near 60 entrants were arriving. The second school being on 30 June at Digby Airfield, there was not as many newer drivers, but there was plenty of frequent fliers looking to get more out of themselves and their cars. As for the competition, fierce as always, with tight battles in the results throughout.
A special thanks to all the volunteers that helped in the organization, setting up, and running of our slalom events this season. Even if the act seems small, any and all help in the process makes a world of a difference in making the events run well and on schedule. The following is a list of who readily comes to mind: Debbie Miller – Alan Gray – Krista Nelson – Brian Jarvis – James Partridge – Joel Nelson – Scott Montgomery – Dave Hewitt – Skye Mullen – James Riendeers – Tristan Keeping – Scott Lyons – Adam Whyte – Ryan Devost – Matt Bornais – Mitchell Parker – Austin Richards

2023 has been a year of some promise in the Atlantic Region. For the first time since Covid we have had a Performance Rally Season with 3 events. New areas of the province were explored and new roads used. No less than 5 teams travelled to events outside our region, and represented themselves well. ASCC members brought home the Regional Performance Championship in a good showing against stiff competition. More work is needed to get more of the dozen plus rallycars sitting in garages to come to events.
Navex Rallying continues to struggle. A new eye is being given to this issue for 2024, with some rule changes and other avenues being explored. Some new formats will be trialed, and new concepts introduced. It is hoped that these ideas will bear some fruit.
Rallycross continues to be steady. Like Slalom, venues are at a premium, and weather is playing an increasing roll in our facilities. This has caused date losses due to flooding and poor ground conditions. Regionally more clubs would be welcome to organize events in areas outside metro Halifax.
Climate change is playing an increasingly noticeable role in motorsport. This year the Lookoff Rally had to be moved to November due to unprecedented wildfire activity, and the closure of woods travel. Not a month later the province of NS suffered flooding and damage that is still being felt.
Nationally the Championship had some very large entries, including a near record 49 cars for Rally BDC. This almost capacity scenario made the event extremely well attended and viewed.
We look forward to 2024 with renewed hope and optimism

ARMS AGM was in Moncton a few weeks ago. Next year it will be organized by AFRA/AMNKA.
Bylaws were updated – there is a minimum membership now and other housekeeping updates. No change in Executive. License Register has changed from Pidge to Brent O’Connor with Pidges assistance. On the Solo side for 2024 there will be only one regional weekend which will be Slemon. We will still hold Digby and St John will still hold their event and you should attend; they just won’t be regional event.
Autoslalom Nationals are going to be held in Quebec in 2024.
Still looking for lots for Autoslalom
ARMS is having a booth at the Sports and RV show again this year on March 15,16,17. This is an anniversary year for the show. Reach out the Brian Partridge if you would like to help, need volunteers to work the booths.
