The NAPA 5000 Rally kicks off this week in Moncton, with compeiting teams having to solve purposely created mechanical issues with their cars. Starting off in a secret location in the Shediac area of New Brunswick, five teams will be introduced to their cars only to diagnose and repair engine-related issues with their cars before setting off on the long-distance rally running from July 6 to 13. Competing for honours are the Pacific Rims (British Columbia), the Prairie Dogs (Prairies), 401 Patrol (Ontario), la Sainte Gravelle (Quebec) and defending champions, the Smoking Turbots (Atlantic Provinces). The competition promises to be more demanding, more exciting, and with more mechanical challenges than in the first edition in 2009. Designed to test the participant’s resourcefulness and mechanical skills, the competition will be filmed every day and edited at night in order to be online the very next morning at 9:00 AM in English and French at www.naparally5000! Visitors to the site can vote for their favourite teams. Moreover, watching the NAPA Rally 5000 webisodes could pay off as $15,000 will be drawn exclusively among the supporters registered from the site.
