Default October Fundraiser & Finale of the Rally Season

Narrowsburg, NY
International Rally New York, October 22-23 2011

The final round of the 2011 United States Rally Championship was held last weekend in the foothills of New York’s Catskill Mountains. Teams from as far away as Colorado came to test their mettle on some of the roughest roads in the series. Defending USRC 2WD National Champion, Erika Detota and her co-driver, Brian Johnson, were among those battling to reach the finish.

Day one took its toll on the team. First a flat tire on the second stage slowing them down followed by a sheared drive axle on the seventh stage left them stranded and out of contention. “The new roads were awesome, but the traditionally run stages took a beating from the rainy fall weather. They were very rocky and ultimately cost us the day. We’re hoping to get the car repaired tonight in order to take advantage of the Super Rally rules and restart tomorrow morning” said Detota. USRC Super Rally rules allow teams who suffer repairable mechanical failures to fix them and re-enter on the next day of the race.

When day two began anew the team was quick from the outset, netting a pair of 2nd fastest stage times while moving their way back up the standings. By day’s end, Detota and Johnson were well ahead of their 2WD competition in the regional portion of the rally. However, their inability to finish the first day left the them unable to hold onto any chance of retaining the USRC 2WD title that Detota held for the 2010 season with co-driver Jason Smith. For 2011, Detota received 3rd place in the championship with 1st going to past winners Michael Reilly and Josh Benthien.

Co-driver Johnson said after the event, “Erika drove her best at this rally and I think that was evident to her fans. With a brand new livery and sponsors, Erika wanted to make sure to give maximum effort, which she did, even after the goal of winning the championship was no longer attainable.”

Continuing her partnership with the Keep A Breast Foundation, Erika’s new light blue car also welcomed some additional supporters. Grand Prix NY, a local go kart track joined for the event and Rally Armor made a pink decal mud flap with proceeds going to the Keep A Breast Foundation. “It is really fun to bring together my sponsors for breast cancer awareness month” said Detota, “I am looking forward to teaming up with more companies to further spread awareness next year!”

Erika would like to thank her partners and supporters, Keep-A-Breast.org, Grand Prix NY, Rally Armor, Broken Motorsports, Big Boulder Park, Exedy Racing Clutch and media partner Flat Out promotions for their generosity, time and product support.
