Umm he wasn't running against $400k WRC Cars. He was running against like machinery. He came in 3rd in class. I am not trying to be a jerk, but the headline is a wild exaggeration.

He was running against old wrc cars. For the "Rally America" portion there was only one class.

Classes A8 and N4, WRC and PWRC.

Final result: WRC car 4th.

Which beat the BMW by 1 hour 20 minutes. Then a couple GrN cars, then the BMW which only beat a couple 1600cc GrA Pugs. Not WRC cars.

I swear when I posted the link on Friday, the WRC Peugot was listed behind Caswell, who was listed third. I'm not sure what happened over the weekend, but it looks like the WRC car won a protest or something and got their times adjusted.
