The closest and most exciting season in recent history for the Canadian Association of Rally Sport became even more so after a hard fought win by Antoine L'Estage and Nathalie Richard over Pat Richard & Alan Ockwell at the 2010 Pacific Forest Rally! Crazy Leo took his 2nd national (and 2nd consecutive) 3rd place finish with co-driver Christine Beavis - who spent Friday night controlling their stuck throttle with a string of zap straps tied from her wrist to the gas pedal.
This was the most exciting CARS event I have ever worked... and the busiest! As Stage Captain I was not able to get out and shoot all the angles and media types as I had hoped - and losing my poor little Zi6 to Pat Richard's STI on the Helmer Lake stage didn't help either! That's 2 cameras in 2 years at this event... but the shots are worth it.
This is my tribute to the drivers, fans, sponsors, organizers and of course the volunteers of the 2010 Pacific Forest Rally - I hope you all enjoy!
