So out of 19 entries, only 9 cars made it to the finish line. Roads were pretty rough. I saw two cars go out on the first stage! A couple cars went head first into trees/signs, and William Doyle did a triple roll on one of the stages - luckily, everyone was alright. My own rally almost ended on this stage when i overcooked a turn, but we manage to claw our way out the ditch
Throughout the entire rally i was not allowed to know how we were doing. There were 7 open class AWD entries, so imagine our surprise when i found out we had finished not only 1st in Production AWD class, but 2nd overall!
Our plan for the build was just to get to SS1. And our game plan for this rally was just to finish. So coming back with an overall podium finish, and 5 trophies from the event, I'm really just at a loss for words.
Thanks to the entire DCAWD community. And thanks to Sabre for taking me to that rallyX earlier this summer and getting rally back into my head.
So there you have it, International Rally New York 2011. I'll get more pics/vids up as soon as i can.
