Edson, AB - Once again the PIAA-RSport Rally Team sprayed Champagne from the winner's circle as the team secured it's third consecutive overall win in the 2005 Western Canadian Rally Championship (WCRC). The team won the Bighorn Rally held this past weekend in Edson, Alberta, as the father and son team of driver Scott Trinder and co-driver Bob "Twiz" Trinder literally dominated the event, winning every stage and finishing with a three minute margin of victory.
"This rally was really amazing, as the incredibly fast roads demanded absolute concentration," said Scott. "There were many blind crests taken flat out, yet they had slight jogs afterwards."
"The roads at this event were extremely fast and fun!" enthused Bob.
The PIAA-RSport Rally victory at Bighorn has also given the team sufficient points to secure the 2005 Western Canadian Rally Championship Overall.
"Winning the 2005 championship this early on in the season is absolutely incredible," Scott said. "Frankly, we would not have been able to run most of the events if it were not for the financial and related support of our dedicated sponsors. On behalf of the entire RSport Team, I would like to thank them all for their generous support."
Meanwhile, the team will be running once again at the Pacific Forest Rally in four weeks time. RSport Rally co-driver Bill Westhead currently leads the co-drivers' championship in the WCRC and needs to obtain more points in order to achieve his goal of winning the 2005 co-drivers' championship. Unfortunately, Bill had to miss the Bighorn Rally due to other commitments.
The next event for the RSport Rally team is the Pacific Forest Rally to be held in October 14th and 15th in Merritt, BC. This event will be televised across Canada on the CHUM-TV network later this fall season. Check you local listings in early November to see the RSport Rally Team in action once again at the Pacific Forest Rally.
