RSport Rally driver Scott Trinder and co-Driver Bill Westhead are excited to get back in the game next weekend (June 13/14) at the Mountain Trials rally being held in Merritt BC. The team will be running in their open class Richmond Auto Body Subaru Impreza WRX.

Servicing for this year’s event will be based out of the Canadian Tire parking lot just off the 2nd exit for Merritt heading East on Highway 5. With special stages close to downtown this event is truly spectator friendly. Anyone interested in rallying that would like to enjoy all aspects of the sport will be able to collect a spectator guide and head out to watch the cars in action.

Trinder is feeling quick and comfortable in the right hand drive rally car after competing at the Knox Mountain Hill Climb three weeks ago. Techworks Engineering and RSport Rally entered two cars at the Kelowna-based event where all three team drivers set personal best times on the unique, paved road hill climb.

Meanwhile, the Mountain Trials rally will be the first event where Trinder and Westhead have competed together since they won the Western Canadian Rally Championship back in 2005.

“I am looking forward to going rallying again with Bill’ said Trinder, ‘we have a good dynamic in the car.”

RSport Rally is looking forward to gaining valuable points toward the 2008 Western Canadian Rally Championship at this next event.

“We are definitely in a ‘catch-up’ position after missing the first two rounds of the championship,” said Westhead. “In the past our plan of attack was based on consistency, and that did help us win both the 2002 and 2005 championships. However, this strategy will not work this year and we need to be aggressive in order to secure as many points as possible.’

‘This is a tricky event that will challenge both driver and car,’ Trinder observed. ‘The combination of technical roads and uncertain weather should favor the more experienced teams. However RSport Rally expects to be a top contender thanks to our strong partnership between crew, car and supporters.’
