BACK TO BACK PODIUMS FOR L'ESTAGE AND RICHARD
Maniwaki (Québec) - Quebec driver Antoine L'Estage and his co-driver Nathalie Richard won this weekend’s Rallye Perce-Neige, the opening round of the 2012 Canadian Rally Championship. In their brand new Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution X, powered by VP's RALLY MAX, the duo started the 2012 national season in the best possible way and set a new record for the most victories at this event.
"It’s a convincing victory, winning the rally with a gap of over eight minutes ahead of second place" confides Antoine L'Estage, who adds : "I felt much more comfortable with the new car than last weekend in Michigan. Nathalie once again did a fantastic job co-driving, we didn’t have a single mechanical issue. We can really say that it was the perfect scenario for us".
Winners of nine of the sixteen competitive stages in the 2012 Rallye Perce-Neige, Antoine L'Estage and Nathalie Richard once again proved from the beginning how competitively John Buffum has built yet another Lancer Evo X. "Leading the Canadian and North American championships – there’s no better way for us to start our season" concludes Nathalie Richard who was celebrating her 100 th rally, of which she has won no fewer than thirty-eight!
