I think using a knowledgeable firm to get cars back-and-forth across the border would be the wisest. We need to get a Reliable truck down here to Florida!
Private vehicles in a trailer are to a problem. They may want to look inside but that's about all there is. Been doing it for 15 years never an issue.
Passport and shot cards is all you need,,unless the rules change again.

Sorry to say we will not be able to attend this year… we will miss you all for sure. Thanks Dave for your continued efforts to get the GT nation together each year.

I just wanted to give everyone a brief and (very late) update.

The very first GT Rally was in Metro Detroit a few weeks before production ended, giving everyone the opportunity to walk the plant, see production, and meet the team before it all went away for good. And went away for good it definitely did - I know, I drive by all the time and Wixom Assembly was razed and turned into a Menards!

In just 6 months, production of the new Ford GT at Multimatic Niche Vehicles will conclude. It was always going to be Markham or bust in 2022. I apologize for the extremely short notice, but obviously the world is a crazy place right now, so figuring out if doing this is even a possibility has been agonizing. We are going to do it August 24-25-26. I will give you a full accounting of the plan next week, but I wanted to give as much time as possible to get it on the calendar. We will have a special track day event at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park (Mosport) on August 25th with all the cool Ford GT hardware I can muster. The team at Multimatic Niche Vehicles will then graciously open the doors of their facility for Ford GT Rally XIV on August 26th, 2022. I will get as many people from the program as I can up to Markham so we can buy them all a drink. I look at this event as an opportunity to say thank you and goodbye to a place and group of people that made a lot of memories and good times possible for us.

I hope you and your GT can make it.

Thank you Dave. I will be bringing (2) cars and (4) people. I’m going to be running my boat up from Fort Lauderdale along east coast through the Hudson and and into Lake Ontario to Toronto. I hope to get my boat to a Toronto marina in time for the rally. If I’m successful, we would like to have group of about 40 guest out for a happy hour cruise ! Dr Frank stated that I have to have plenty of shrimp 😂🛥

Will try to get the time off, but unlikely in this short notice. It would be nice to be out of the heat for a bit.

This was my first post. I screwed up attaching pictures. I only meant to send the line drawing of my boat so everyone could understand how 40 people will fit on board 🤷🏻‍♂️

Hi guys -

Just an FYI. International travel has obviously been a difficult patchwork of rules and regulations the last few years. Obviously, it's the responsibility of each individual to understand the rules of entry of any individual country they plan on traveling to. The Ford GT production facility is located in Markham, Ontario, Canada and that's not going to change. So, that said, if you can meet the rules of entry for the nation MNV is located in, great! Hope to see you there. If you have read the rules and regulations to cross the international border and have decided you cannot meet them, we'll have to see you next time!

The End.

Just got off phone with State Farm. On my next renewal in July, they will issue a special Canadian insurance document stating I am covered in Canada. As always, no track coverage.

Hoping not to miss. Had something long planned with my wife that week - will see if I can finagle my way around it somehow... without incurring too much of my dear wife's wrath.

Makes perfect sense. Regarding getting the cars to MNV, any additional hurdles to clear? Normally, I just call Reliable, but if there's anything else that needs to be done pls let us know. Thanks!

I frequently go over the border. Use ArriveCAN app, fill it out, will need 2 vaccinations ( have not asked for boosters yet). No problems yet.
