Congratulations to Peter Thomson on another convincing win.

How many rallies are you allowed to count for points in this year's Canadian championship? If it's only the best 4 out of 6, there still may be hope for Antoine L'Estage, but if they all count, Thomson will be very had to beat in 2005.

Looks like a terrific battle in Group 2 between Olsen and Nichols. The class lead swapped several times and Jon only won by 2 seconds!

Congrats too to John Cassidy. I think that's his first podium finish, but not likely his last. Popping champagne corks can be habit forming. Just ask Peter Thomson.

Peter and Rod drove a great event, and have put themselves in a position to take the championship by running a concervative rest of the season.
One thing that is for sure, Antoine (or anybody else) won't be driving that tiburon any time soon ...(ever the optimist)

Road position played a huge factor in the event, and being first on the road was a real penalty for Peter, it was a rally well driven for sure.

Then again, there are 4 events left in the year ... so there could be some challenges posted!

Lawrence:

Yes, Peter has driven two very smart rallies and must certainly be the favourite to win this year. Nice guy, excellent driver and he is finally seeing some good results for all his efforts in previous years.

However, one should not loose sight of the fact that the Championship is decimated this year due to the non-participation of McGeer, Richard, Erickson, ACP and Sprongl not driving an Open class car.

Nevertheless, Peter is doing exactly what he has to do to become champion and should be congratulated for his drives to date.
