Default Specialty Subaru Rally Racing Team victorious in Alberta

Specialty Subaru Rally Racing Team takes 5 major honours at the Rock Mountain Rally in Calgary, Alberta

The Production class 2004 Subaru WRX was driven by Joe Battrick (Squamish) and codriven by Owen Parsonage (West Vancouver).

From the outset, they set consistently quick times on all the stages. Even against the more powerful Open class STIs and EVOs they still managed to set top 5 stage times and even a top 3 on one stage (averaging 110kph) to follow Pat Richard's STI and Andrew Comrie Picard's EVO.

Joe and Owen competed in both the Western Canada Rally Championship and the Canadian National Championship at Rocky. They came away with...

1st Overall, WCRC
1st Production 4 class, WCRC
1st Novice, WCRC

4th Overall, CRC
1st Production 4 class, CRC
1st Novice, CRC

Owen was old enough to spray the champagne at the finish but (at just 17) not old enough to drink any so he donated most of his bottle into the back of Joe's suit.

The champagne splash was graced by the presence of the Bud Girls who were attending another party at the rally finish.

Owen retains his lead in the Western Canada Rally Championship (overall and in class). He scores 10 points in the Canadian National Championship at the first attempt which secures him 4th overall and 2nd in class.

When I left Calgary this morning, there was some discussion of an attempt at the full Canadian National Championship for this team. If they do go, the next event is Baie in Quebec July 2-3 which is just 2 weeks after the next WCRC event, Mountain Trials (June 19th, Merritt BC).

With Pat's win overall in the National at Rocky, the local rally club (WCRA) walked away with 1st everywhere they were represented. BC is starting to show its potential as the hotbed of rallying in North America.

Here's some photos of the event taken by Whistler photo artist Warwick Patterson (http://www.formulaphoto.com/rocky04).

You just have to see the imprint in the dirt of the rolled WRX. It's going to be one of those photos you will see everywhere. Probably the best rally shot ever taken.
