Over 15 rally cars will line up at the starting grid of the 7th edition of the Challenge sur glace Continental ? Sherbrooke. Great known names of this sport such as the 2004 North American rally champion,Patrick Richard, borned in Sherbrooke, as well as Sylvain Erickson, Antoine L'Estage, Andrew Comerie-Picard (NY), Jean-Paul Pérusse and Julien Pilon, to name a few, will participate. «For the first time, we will have at the Challenge drivers coming from American States. Moreover, the presentation of a competition with this type of car on an ice road circuit is new in Quebec. We adapted the formula for our event. All in all, the competitions will keep the basis of the rally. The cars will take the start with 5 seconds intervals and not all in one group. We are going to have spectacular overtakings!» proudly says the president of the event, Dany Sévigny.
When will Cassidy be mentioned in an offical press release, eh?
Zimmer is leading, Cassidy is second, and Comrie-Picard is third. Sounds like there is quite a bit of carnage among the rally contenders. L'Estage, Richard and Erickson have smashed all of their lights but still have their HIDs for the night runs. Pat is on his second transmission and is trying to rebuild his original tranny for tomorrow.
I'm getting some updates from my brother via text message. I will post more info as I receive it. He will send me more detailed results later tonight.
