Got in. Got out. Brought home prizes.

With a multi-national crack team of 3 we jumped the border into Canada and headed to Catchacoma for a short single day rally. With 2 pass recce on a wide, fast sweeping 8km road, what's not to like? We had a driver as a crew guy, a first timer in the silly seat and I hadn't been on gravel for 8 months. It could have gone terribly wrong. Surprisingly we maintained stage times in the 5m 20s range all day moving from a start position of 9th up into 4th and bringing home the PGT victory. Sufficed to say we were fair chuffed.
GCFR is a great wee event on a fun road organised by long time enthusiasts who have what it takes to execute a safe and reliable rally. I highly recommend it.
