Friday Night at Perce Neige

Posted on 05. Feb, 2010 by in Canadian Rally Champs, CRC 2010, Event Coverage, Perce Neige 2010

Drivers and Co-Drivers are returning to their hotels this evening after a day out in the woods on recce. Roads are a combination of hard-packed snow and ice, although not nearly as icy as last weekend's Sno*Drift Rally. Snowbanks are minimal, so any big mistakes may be costly. Teams are rolling their cars through tech inspection tonight, and cars roll off the start line tomorrow morning at 9:30am EST.

Pat Richard's Subaru Canada car is sporting a couple new sponsor decals this year - the previously reported Yokohama Tire deal, plus some Gulf Oil decals on the bumpers. The Gulf Oil brand isn't widespread in Canada, but we expect the sponsorship has something to do with the appointment of Teklub Distribution as official distributor for Gulf branded lubricants in Canada. Teklub will be relaunching the brand into this market, and is also a major Motul importer (a brand previously connected to the Subaru Canada car). We also caught up with Jon Nichols as he re-prepped his VW Golf in the service park:

    55 car entry is awesome, including a few old names in there. Good luck to all. So so many of them 4wd types, but the 2wd could be interesting with Nichols, Vincent, Menegoz, Zedril, Kocandrie…. we’ll see how the rusty old names do against the newer hotshots. Eh.
