Default Antoine L'Estage and Natalie Richard in a Mitsu for 2009


North American Champions To Compete In a Mitsubishi

Montreal (Quebec), January 14 2009.- Quebec driver Antoine L’Estage, co-driven by Nathalie Richard, both from St-Jean-sur-Richelieu (QC), will return to the Canadian Rally Championship and the North American Rally Cup at the wheel of a brand new Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution X.
This new partnership will see the current North American champions start the 2009 season at the Rallye Perce-Neige (Maniwaki, QC) on February 7th with the Mitsubishi, currently being built by rally legend John Buffum at his Libra Racing shop in Vermont.
“This is big news for our entire team, the biggest and most exciting project I have ever taken part in since the start of my rally career ” explains Antoine L’Estage, “the new addition of Rockstar Energy Drink, who becomes co-title sponsors alongside Mitsubishi and Royal Group, increased support from Yokohama Canada and the addition of Mobil 1 Lubricants are crucial to our programme for the 2009 season ” he adds.

Four-time North American champion co-driver Nathalie Richard will return to Antoine’s side, as will John Buffum and the Coyote Rallye team of mechanics to prepare and maintain the rally car. “Since the car is entirely brand new, I will have very little time to get to know it as much as I would like to prior to the first stage at the Rallye Perce-Neige in only a few weeks but I am confident that I will bring a Mitsubishi to the top step of the podium before too long ” adds the Quebec driver.
The Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution X is the latest version of the Lancer Evo line, cars that are particularly efficient for rally competition around the world.For Antoine, two-time Canadian and North American champion, the goals with the new car are set very high.
Antoine L’Estage and Nathalie Richard participate in the 2009 Canadian Rally Championship with the support of Rockstar Energy Drink, Royal Group, Mitsubishi Canada, Yokohama Tires, Mobil, Energie Cardio, Libra Racing, OMP Racewear and MBF Racing.
