Rally driver Andrew “ACP” Comrie-Picard started a strong season at Sno Drift Rally in Atlanta, Michigan. Sno Drift Rally is the first of 9 circuits on the Rally America Series. This year around the rally had plenty of snow, averaging mid to low 20s, giving way to slippery conditions without the benefit of studded tires. (Rallies in North America prohibit the use of studded tires.) Within these challenging conditions ACP and co-driver, Marc Goldfarb snatched third place in NOS Energy Drink Mitsubishi Evolution IX.
The WORKS crew started its first day flying into Detroit. After renting a car from Hertz, we drove four hours north to Atlanta, Michigan where the Rally was to take place. Along the way we had the opportunity to stop by Showcase Mitsubishi, an authorized WORKS dealer. We got to spend some time with Andy Lieber and see their national SCCA EVO. See pictures.
