Bluenose Autosport Club member, Mal Swann with Co-Driver Tim Dine have travelled the almost 1500km to the quaint town of Maniwaki, QC to partake in the fun that is Rallye Perce-Neige. This is the first national rally on the Canadian Rally Championship Series calendar for 2016. This rally has 215km of stage roads with a fun combination of long woods stages and some great spectator stages within the town.
In similar fashion to Rallye Charlevoix, Swann’s 1979 RX7 has once again created quite a buzz amongst the Rally teams. He will have some competition in rear wheel drive against BC native Jason Bailey in his 2004 Subaru BRZ.
Mal had some fun during recce (sources say the ol’ F350 may or may not have found some air), and after the day of recconnaisance Mal and Tim feel confident about the roads tomorrow and are looking forward to the challenge ahead.
Good Luck Mal & Tim!!
