Defi preview

Posted on 08. Sep, 2011 by in CRC 2011, Rallye Defi 2011

Tomorrow, Antoine L'Estage and Nathalie Richard will take on Pat Richard and Leanne Junnila for the 2011 Rallye Defi, the fourth event in the Canadian Rally Championship. Put together out of a series of short stages, teams face a lot of transit to get from stage to stage, and will have to be able to charge flat out as few stages offer any real chance to warm up. Last year, Richard had to settle for second place after his gearbox failed late in the rally. This year, he'll be gunning for top spot, needing to win all three remaining events for a shot at the 2011 title. Antoine L'Estage has a comfortable lead in the points, but not enough to clinch the title here. While the desire to win is as strong as ever, L'Estage knows he has to keep mindful of the bid for the championship. Last year, an epic battle took place in two wheel drive, and this year fans can expect the same. Simon Dube won at Baie Des Chaleurs, and will aim to continue his winning ways here. But he'll have to fight off the Zedril Brothers and Eric Grochowski. Stages start at 9am tomorrow. Keep your eyes here for news from the event.
