Default PikaSports Still in the Lead for the 2011 Championship after North Nevada Rally

Fernley, NV (July 10, 2011) - the PikaSports team of driver Katianna Pihakari and co-driver Sean Gallagher were victorious in the Production GT class in the Friday night event of North Nevada Rally, held July 8-9, 2011 in the vicinity of Fernley, NV.

“I think the roads here close to Lovelock and Gerlach are some of the most fun roads of the season”, said Pihakari about the stages. “Our Streetwise crew again did a wonderful job with the car and the car could not have been better set for this event.”

“The roads here are a combination of fast sections that rapidly change into very tight technical sections over a single crest.” continues the co-driver Sean Gallagher. “This might catch many teams off-guard especially when the fatigue comes to play on the second day of the event.”

“Our goal for the event was to finish both days. Unfortunately I made a driving mistake on the second stage on Saturday which got us stuck on the berm. Although no harm was done to us or the car, we arrived six minutes too late to the next time control to be able to continue in the race.”

“The night stages are quite challenging. In addition to the darkness, hanging dust is often an issue.” said the crew chief Doug Nagy. “We have been quite pleased with our LED lights from AnzoUSA. They are valuable under dusty conditions.”

Sanctioned by RallyCar, North Nevada Rally is a coefficient 2 and 3 points paying event and is also part of the California Rally Series (CRS), the Bilstein Southwest RallyCup Series, and Rally America.
