We wrapped up our season with a bittersweet ending. A solid finish on Friday gave us enough points to secure a pair of 3rd place trophies for the season in California Rally Series Production Stock class, but a mechanical failure leading to a crash knocked us out of the race on Saturday.
The team was disappointed to experience a lost lower strut bolt, which caused steering failure and a collision with a large rock and small tree. The radiator was punctured, and the car left high-centered on the rock. Our crew was instrumental in a successful extraction, and was glad to break the boredom of sitting in service at the gas station.
The car will be back next year, with some yet to be revealed modifications, ready to challenge the California Rally Series CRS-2 class.
