Southern Ohio Forest Rally Update:
The event went very well for us. Car did great and we survived the roads and the heat in the car the first day.
Only real issue was a rear axle nut coming loose at the first service and a CV joint that was also coming loose, both were tightened at service and checked the rest of the weekend.
Also had a little run in with fence post during the very wet and muddy head to head super special. See the pictures for the dent.
The super special was fun. We raced head to head with the Audi 90 of Johansen and Little. They ended up getting 3rd in the national rally standing, I am not sure how long it has been since an Audi has been in the top three but I am sure it is has been many years.
Results for Friday Regional Rally 16th overall and 7th in the Open Light Class (46 regional cars)
Saturday Regional Rally Results 15th overall and 6th in the Open Light Class.
For the National Standings of the two days we were 18th overall and 4th in class (62 cars started), one place off the podium.
The roads were very tight and had a lot of tight corners with drops on the outside. We were happy with our speed and look forward to doing this event again.
Enjoy the pictures and videos.
Stayed at the Ravenwood Castle, Very nice place and close to the first day service.
Well Done Paul and Susi
