New England Based Teams Travel well to Oregan

By May 17, 2010News

New Hampshire based Bill Bacon and Peter Watt managed to stay ahead of the overall Championship points leader Antoine L’Estage at this weekend’s Oregan Trail Rally, earning themselves a second place finish. Both teams were bested by Andrew Comrie-Picard and Jeremy Wimpey who took a decisive overall victory.

According to Rally America this event was the first time there has been an all-Mitsubishi national podium, a result that was particularly rewarding for the winners, who are all privateers.

And rounding out the New England connection was the pride of Bethel, Maine, Christopher Duplessis, who raced a nearly stock Scion xD to second place in 2-wheel drive finishing behind Dillon Van Way.
