After continuing their strong team efforts at the Rallye Baie-des-Chaleurs, Subaru Canada Inc (SCI) is pleased to announce once again they are maintaining first-place man manufacturer status for Subaru. A total of four Subaru vehicles finished in the top ten at the third event of the Canadian Rally Championship season in Baie-des-Chaleurs, QC.

Subaru Rally Team Canada driver Antoine L’Estage and co-driver Darren Garrod had a hard fought battle after an accident in the second stage caused an early setback. “Everyone on the team did a great job” said L’Estage of the incident, “but it was really hard to try to make up the time”. Nonetheless the team responded in tremendous fashion, embodying the true meaning of rally to win the last eight stages.

Also notable was the top Subaru team, André and René Leblanc, brothers from Subaru New Richmond.

The first local team to finish on the podium in recent memory, the pair put together a great race, finishing in second place to the delight of the hometown crowd.

They were followed closely by Maxime Labrie and Anik Barrette, whose third place finish helped to keep them atop the leader board in both the Drivers and Co-Drivers Championships.

The team is now shifting their focus to Rallye Défi, taking place September 9-10 in Montpellier, QC.
