IT'S SHAKE & BAKE TIME ONCE AGAIN....3 DAYS, 20 STAGES, 354 KMS OF DIRT AND GLORY!

WRC MEXICO 2010 ...IS LESS THAN 2 MONTHS AWAY! This will be our second rally race but this time in our own car. In WRC MEXICO 2008 we ran our first rally race in a rental in class A6, the rig was a homologated WRC PEUGEOT 206 SX which performed well and we managed to survive our first rally and put on a good show, they named us rookie team amongs the mexican teams. We race for the colonial city of Guanajuato, one of the host cities of the WRC Mexico. Damn that race was intense!
In 2010 we will be returning with more bongo power and representing the city of SILAO, another host city of WRC MEXICO. This will be the first time SILAO has a team in WRC, we are very honored to be chosen as the team. We race in Class A6 WRC homologated Peugeot 206 SX. Our RECCE rig is a rally prepped 1997 VW Golf.

Some more footage...

We were only able to do 3 stages out of the 20 for RECCE :( But we tried out best to drive that little rental and survive.

Does anyone know if any USA teams are racing WRC MEXICO? I have dual citizenchip and my co driver BILL BRIDGE is from the USA so we will be sporting the USA FLAG as well this time...like Pancho and Lefty.

Hi Ponce,

Hope to be back in Leon and GTO again this year working with Mike, Paula, and Pete. Will certainly look you up as well as Johnny who I saw last summer on the way to Nations Rally until I got sick and had to return home.

Thanks,

WRC BONGO TEAM

Hola Dave send me an sms to +5214731185723 so I can have your cell if not thru facebook. Johnny will be flying here every weekend starting Jan 22 to maintain the race and practice rig and see all his girlfriends :D

Sorry I missed that Rally Nations but my sponsors backed out due to that whole influenza scandal so I headed to vikingland until things cooled down. But we are back and ready to put on a great show!

Pete send me your cell as well via sms.

Gracias, this Rally is going to be more fun and full of surprises since it is part of the Bi Centennial mexico celebration.

Saludos and dont ever let the bongo end!
Ponce :D


Im telling you, Johnny be good...


My Crew Chief Johnny Despain coaching me on day 3 of WRC 2008, we moved up from 3rd to finish 2nd out of 13 Puegeots.
