A pair of brothers from Quebec are this year’s winners of the Lincoln Electric Rally of the Tall Pines.
Andre and Rene Leblanc from New Richmond won the rally last weekend with a posted time of 1 hour, 26 minutes and 16 seconds. The drivers of the Subaru WRX 05 are now second in the national standings, according to Canadian Rally Championships with a total of 57 points. Out of 26 teams entered, 18 made it to the finish line and 8 were unable to complete the course.
Rally organizers say that despite a number of issues with their ham radio systems, it was a very successful race. They say they would have been unable to do the race without what they called “irreplaceable” volunteers.
