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.

Rallye Perce Neige Recap

This past weekend in the coldness of Maniwaki, QC the Rallye Perce Neige took place. It was a cold event with some tricky conditions, an event where only 60% of the cars finished.

Four Star Motorsports friends and customers L3 Rallye team (André, René  and Adam LeBlanc) out of New Richmond, QC managed to take their 2005 Subaru WRX STi to 1st in class and overall in the ECRC and OPRC events and 6th in class and overall in the CRC portion of the event. They were as high as 2nd during the event, but 2 flat tires on the same side at the same time slowed them down a bit.

Another Four Star Motorsports customer and friend Laurens Wit piloted his 2002 Subaru WRX to 1st in his class for the OPRC and CRC events and 2nd in the the ECRC portion of the event.
