Leg 3 of the Canadian Rally Championship starts in New Richmond, Quebec this weekend for the Rallye Baie-Des-Chaleurs! All the Canadian Rally favourites all in the hunt for points on this 200km of rally fun!
Maxime Labrie currently leads the championship in points but will have hard charging Antoine L’Estage in his Subaru Canada STI hoping to get back on top. L’Estage won the last leg in Invermere, BC by 5 minutes after having mechanical issues in the first race. He will be starting first and likely be on the podium post rally. Second out of the gate will be Joel Levac and Stephanie Lewis in there former WRC Gulf liveried Countryman which is a fan favourite! Wim Van Der Poel currently holds down third place in the Championship in his 2003 EVO.
The 2WD Championship is currently lead by Graham Bruce though Simon Dube and Aaron Crescenti hope there 1990 VW Golf can gain back some points. This division has a lot of cool cars like Mal Swann’s RX-7 and Jim Steven’s Swift to compete against Bruces’s 911!
The racing kicks off Saturday morning with a big party Friday night! This years race is again brought to you by Shaw Direct as the premier sponsor. Here are the highlights from Leg 2 of the Rocky Mountain Rally! Anyone perhaps interested in a Fantasy Canadian Rally Championship next year?
