Yea, it was cool to see the progression we've made since the "old days!" Granted, I did know you were preparing a rally car and would be there, but it was cool to hear them call your name for 3rd on day 2. I thought it was funny that you guys were impressed that I'm on Otis' crew, while I was jealous that you were driving!

The engine rebuild is already underway at Autosport Engineering, Otis brought it out there the Monday after MFR and tore it down with Graham that Tuesday. Apparently fuel starvation had caused the pistons to melt and there are actual holes in them (I might have pictures later), and it might need a new block. Either way, we'll be ready for Ojibwe.

Alan was an excelent co-driver, Otis was impressed. Apparently he didn't miss a single call the whole event, and he put up with our constant jokes about being a Canook!
