Targa Newfoundland 2018 Recap

Another year, another Targa Newfoundland.

This was an interesting year, with a crash during the prologue, some chilly temps and rain some days. As with any motoring event, there were some cars that didn’t survive the full event.

Congratulations go out to Four Star Motorsports friend and customer Mark Rittenhouse. He piloted his MItsubishi EVO X to a first place finish, leading the entire event. Of course Dan Sprongl was there as service crew for him. Dan even won an award for great service crew for his help of other competitors. The famous Jim Kenzie took part as well in the Four Star prepared Nissan Juke.

It seems like a fun time was had by all that competed in this years event.

See everyone next year?

Rallying In Mexico - Chihuahua Express Recap

From April 19-22, Four Star Motorsports friend and customer Mark Rittenhouse competed in his Mitsubishi Lancer EVO X at the Chihuahua Express rally event covering 1670km around the Chihuahua, Mexico area. Mark placed 1st in his class and 4th overall in a field of over 40 participants . He had the help of Mark Laitenberger as his co-driver and Dan Sprongl as his service crew. Mark managed to keep the car out of any danger and avoided the need for any major repairs, which can be difficult over the 1,600+ km (all on the well performing Pirelli Trofeo R tire) the cars travel during the event.


Congratulations Mark, Mark and Dan.
