The Rental Car Rally sounds like a pretty fun thing to do, especially if you’ve got the time to do it. The event, which is a race from New York up to Montreal, isn’t exactly a straight-forward race. Instead, it’s got a little bit of the Amazing Race vibe going on with certain checkpoints racing teams have to go to in order to complete the race.
Last August, the latest Rental Car Rally was staged and the normal six-hour ride from New York to Montreal ended up far longer than the teams could have done without the checkpoints. But as explained by these beautiful ladies from Quebec - in the native language of French, no less - the teams had to stop at a number of locations, including an abandoned psychiatric hospital that "may have been haunted," a curiously-named theme park called the "Holy Land," and an old summer resort that allegedly only allows ghosts as its visitors.
Doesn’t sound like our kind of checkpoints.
With only rental cars allowed and a $500 prize in loose change waiting for the winners up in Montreal, the Rental Car Rally just might be the silliest race we’ve seen in a while.
Nothing silly about these hot French-Canadians, though.
