Depending on what your daily reading sources are, you may already know this. Yes, I know I should have posted this story yesterday, but like most of North America I was caught up in Olympic hockey madness.
That Monster Energy madman, Ken Block piloted his Ford Fiesta to an overall win at the 2010 100 Acre Wood rally. This achievement means that he and co-driver Alex Gelsemino have won this rally 5 years in a row! The long sweeping turns and high speed straights suit Block’s wide open driving style just perfectly.
As the winter Olympics were getting ready to wind up in Canada, it is nice to see some Canadian representation on the Rally America podium also. Canadians Antoine L’Estage and Nathalie Richard took the second spot in their Mitsubishi Evo X while the third step was taken by Bill Bacon and Canadian Peter Watt in an Evo IX.
Next up on the Rally America national schedule is the Olympus Rally in Washington on April 23-25.
