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.

Congratulations guys!

Maxxis Victra R19 Tires: A Video Review

Yeah, you've seen us talk about getting Maxxis gravel rally tires, but maybe you still aren't sure about leaving Pirelli or some other tire make. This review of the Maxxis Victra R19 is from our friend André Leblanc, a fellow Maxxis distributor and most importantly, a real rally driver. He put the Maxxis tire on his rally car and went out for over 60 km of spirited driving. He mentioned the he was braking too soon because of the good grip, the tires are lighter than their Pirelli counterparts and that the edges of the tires held up well.

We here at Four Star Motorsports believe in the Maxxis tire, and by the amount we have sold so do lots of you. Hopefully you'll be on the phone with us to get your own set of Maxxis gravel rally tires.

Winter Is Coming, Pirelli Is Ready

Don't worry, we aren't taking about white walkers or dragons. We are talking about Pirelli and their line of snow and ice tires.

Yeah, it's nice and sunny and warm out there now, but in a few short months we will have snow and ice to deal with. Don't be that guy who at the last minute decides they need some serious rally tires to match the conditions. Start thinking about them now and make sure that the tires you want are available and can be delivered without worrying about deadlines.

Of course we here at Four Star Motorsports have other Pirelli tires for you that match this warmer, wetter weather as well.

Speedline Corse Wheels Are Here!

Speedline is synonymous with racing and winning. Over 70 FIA titles have been won on Speedline Corse wheels. Wouldn't you want to be associated with this great racing heritage?

From rally wheels to historic retro wheels for Renault and Puegeot, we at Four Star Motorsports have your needs covered as the only authorized dealer of Speedline Corse wheels in Canada. And arriving this fall we will have a Speedline Corse retro wheel fitted for Audi in a 17x8, 5x112 bolt pattern. Don't worry, we'll let you know when the Audi wheel is available.
