at Rallye Baie des Chaleurs.
(CNW Group/Subaru Canada Inc.
You might think so after seeing the results for the Rallye Baie des Chaleurs held in New Richmond, Quebec, last month. While Subaru Rally Team Canada drivers Pat Richard and Alan Ockwell only managed to grab second due to windshield fogging problems, coming in just over three minutes behind Antoine L’Estage and Nathalie Richard in a Mitsubishi, eight of the top ten finishers were Subarus. Another Mitsubushi took seventh place.
While the press release didn’t say, according to Subaru Canada’s website, their rally team drives a 2008 Impreza WRX STI. The Canadian Rally Championship site has more information on the various events that make up the Canadian championship and notes that TSN will be showing the 2012 Baie des Chaleurs rally next Monday, July 16, at 15:30 EDT. There are a few other showings scheduled as well. The next event in the championship will be the 2012 Rallye Defi, held in Ste-Agathe, Quebec, September 6-8. That overlaps the Targa Newfoundland (September 8-15) which is bad planning on somebody’s part.
