The return of Black Bear Rally, hosted by Maple Leaf Rally Club, saw 16 teams compete on the Parnell Quarry Rd. near Catchecoma, ON. Running under Covid restrictions didn't hamper the competition, however the heat did take its toll on some teams, and mechanical issues took out three teams.

At the end, with the 8 stages completed, Alex Moreau and Ian Guité took the overall win, with Pat and Dan Cyr winning the 2-wheel drive competition.
