Following the success of last year’s NAPA Rally 5000, NAPA Auto Parts has brought it back for 2010.
Last year’s rally took teams on a winding route covering much of the Canadian landscape, with special added challenges to overcome along the way.
This year’s rally will include an all-new route and more intense mechanical challenges, say the organizers.
NAPA has invited technicians to register as individuals or teams of two. Teams selected for the rally will represent five regions across Canada (B. C., Prairies, Ontario, Quebec, and Atlantic Canada).
Team registration was to close April 30, 2010. The rally takes place from July 3 to July 12, 2010.
Teams will compete for $20,000 in prizes, while supporters, who can sign up online and pick their favourite team, can win up to $15,000 in prizes. Prizes: $20,000 in prizes for the teams; $15,000 in prizes for the supporters.
