The 2021 Cochrane Winter Rally was planning on running a non-spectator event on April 11, 2021. The Rally is hosted by the Calgary Sports Car Club and would have been event one of five in the Western Canadian Rally Championship. 

The cancellation was announced in a post on Facebook.

“Between increasing COVID-19 numbers and not reaching an agreement with Alberta Health for an exemption in time to adequately organize the event, the organizers feel the responsible choice is to cancel.

Our discussions with Alberta Health are continuing and we are optimistic that we will be able to run Rocky in late May.”

The event is usually held in March but was pushed to April this year in hopes of lighter COVID-19 restrictions. 

The 2021 Cochrane Winter Rally had 22 vehicles registered to compete before the cancellation was announced.

The rally plans to return next year.
