A New Year, A New Rally Season...

Recommended Posts

A new year, a new season, and it begins with a double-header. The opening round of the U.S. Rally America championship (featuring Ken Block in his new 2009 Ford Fiesta and Travis Pastrana with a broken collarbone) takes place on January 29-30th, based out of Atlanta, Michigan...followed by the opening round of the Canadian Rally Championship the very next weekend on February 6th, based out of Maniwaki, Quebec.With the continued and unwavering support of Mitsubishi Canada and all of our supporters, we have our sights set on a 4th consecutive national championship and are willing to take whatever risks necessary in order to reach that goal. Nevertheless, with past champions trading-in their All-Wheel-Drive monsters for the opportunity and exposure that the 2wd championship has to offer, our goal will certainly be more difficult to attain this year. With that said, please find the following event links and vehicle tracking information:SNO*DRIFT (Altanta, MI, January 29-30th)*********************************http://www.flatovercrest.comhttp://www.rally-america.com/events/2010/SnoDriftPERCE*NEIGE (Maniwaki, QC, February 6th)*********************************http://www.flatovercrest.comhttp://www.rallyeperceneige.comhttp://www.rallyscoring.com/results/index.htmAPRS VEHICLE TRACKING*******************Our real-time vehicle tracking will once again be operational during the entire trip...commencing at 6pm today, including live tracking of the rallycar during the event itself.

Fans can get up close to the cars in the service areas and catch all of the action from specially designated spectator points located at the best spots on the route with competitors often reaching speeds of well over 160 kph.The Canadian Association of Rallysport (CARS) is the official sanctioning body for rallying in Canada and the premier rally series, the Canadian Rally Championship (CRC), comprising of six events across the country, spanning from the shores of the Atlantic Ocean in New Richmond, Quebec to the mountains of Merritt, BC.
