Black Box will compete in 2012 Rallye Perce-Neige

Black Box rally team is excited to announce that they will be entering Rallye Perce-Neige, taking place February 2nd-5th 2012 in Maniwaki, Quebec. This rally will be the team’s first international rally, and first winter stage rally.

The team of Alvin Fong and Billy Machin will drive the team’s Production AWD class Mitsubishi Evo 9 through 150+ miles of twisty and windy roads that Perce-Neige is famous for. These challenging snow and ice roads are divided into 16 stages and is the first round of the Canadian Rally Championship. The rally is also part of the North American Rally Cup and Ontario Performance Rally Championship.

“This year we were really looking forward to a winter rally. When Winter Rally New York was cancelled, we knew we had to look for another opportunity to hit the snow,” driver Alvin Fong stated.

The Black Box rally Evo will be the underdog at the event due to CRC class rules that would push the car into the open class. This puts them in competition with Rockstar’s Antoine L’estag’s and Subaru Rally Team’s Patrick Richard. Asked about this, Alvin Fong said, “This is going to be our first winter rally event; we’re out there to have fun, go as sideways as possible, and keep it on the road.”

Billy Machin responded: “I’ve been working on our Deer And Moose Navigator Early Detector system. We’ll be ready.”

Look for the Black Box Evo at Rallye Perce-Neige!

  1. Excellent! The more competitors the better! It will be an awesome time. Good luck to the both of you! (FYI, conditions are likely to be icy… be forewarned, and prepared.)
