Default Ziptie Rally Suffers Heartbreak and Victory at LSPR

The Ziptie Rally Team took an early beating at the 2010 running of the Lake Superior Performance Rally. The team had three cars entered in the Regional Cup Championship – the 171 Open Class STI of Carl Siegler/Dave Goodman, the 858 Open Light Impreza of Anthony Israelson/Jesse Lang and the 558 Group 5 S10 of Jim Cox/Dan Drury. On the opening stage, the 558 S10 suffered a control arm failure negotiating the first corner. With no spare on hand, the team was forced to withdraw. A very disheartening result for Jim and Dan but the two still finished the 2010 season as the Rally America Central Region Group 5 Champions for both driver and co-driver.

The 171 STI also suffered suspension failure early on. After turning in some very respectable times on SS1 and SS2 (as fast as 3rd overall) Carl and Dave were excited to head out to the forest stages. The car was running very strong with a larger turbocharger, new ecu tune and new DMACK GRIPPA tires which were proving to be unbelievably good performers. Unfortunately a washed out section on SS3 exposed a rock that would end Carl and Dave’s run prematurely. As the car came over a crest, Carl was unable to see the slight washout and rock until it was too late (watch the in-car here
). The resulting impact broke the balljoint, tie rod, axle and wheel. Carl and Dave finished the 2010 season 2nd in the Central Region Open Class.

With two of the three Ziptie Rally supported cars out of the rally, the team focused in on their remaining runner, the 858 Open Light Impreza. This was the final event in Anthony’s inaugural rally season. This was also the first time Jesse had co-driven for Anthony. Anthony drove a clean and consistent rally. The 858 car pushed through some challenges Anthony had not experienced yet – such as unexpected water on the Herman stages and heavy dust during the night. When it was all said and done, Anthony and Jesse ended LSPR first in-class for the event and the Regional Cup. Anthony finished 3rd in the Central Region Open Light Class.

Ziptie Rally would like to thank their dedicated crew for their hard work this season! Ziptie Rally would also like to thank their supporters: NOS Energy Drink, Graham Evans Motors, The Four Firkins, RS Motors, Import Image Racing, Morries Minnetonka Subaru, Gearhead Graphics, NF Performance, and Team Powder.
