The Subaru Rally Team Canada (SRTC) driver Antoine L’Estage and co-driver Darren Garrod have won the 2016 Driver’s and Co-Driver’s Championships, securing the titles at the Big White Winter Rally in Kelowna, BC this past weekend. L’Estage claimed his 9th Canadian Rally Championship (CRC) Driver’s title in impressive fashion, tackling notoriously wintery conditions to lead the rest of the pack by a margin of over 10 minutes.
“It’s been a good season with great support from Subaru, and the Rocket Rally team.”
Having already clinched marque title for a record 12th time at the Rally of the Tall Pines, Subaru continued to exert its dominance with a total of eight Subaru teams finishing in the top ten.
Championship winners will be awarded trophies at a gala event in Halifax next month. The 2017 season begins shortly after, at the Rallye Perce Neige in Maniwaki, Quebec in February.
