The Spell of the Alcan
by Adrian Crane
The 1984 Alcan 5000 Rally had 23 entries, and at 4,700 miles was the longest rally yet conducted in North America. The longest Alcan so far was 6,300 miles, in February 1990
A competitive adventure that rewards experience, good judgement, consistency, reliability and rescourcefulness.  A "level playing field" where private & factory teams compete on even terms. Over 90% of the route is scenic touring, scoring is in short "regularity" sections with equal penalty for early or late arrival.
Alcan pursues the original idea of rallying as a grand tour, motoring adventure, and gentleman's sport.  Historic examples include the Monte Carlo [1911], Mille Miglia [1911], and RAC [1932].
