International Rally New York Press Release

Black Box rally team is excited to announce that they will be premiering at International Rally New York taking place October 22nd-23rd in Narrowsburg, NY.

Alvin Fong (driver) and Billy Machin (co-driver) will pilot their Production AWD class Mitsubishi Evo 9 for the first time through the ~100 miles of narrow, high-speed, gravel roads that IRNY has been known for. This rally is divided over 20 stages and is the final round of the United States Rally Championship.

This will be the Black Box rally team’s  first stage rally event. The team started their rally careers in the Finger Lakes Region Winter Rally Series in 2005, gradually developing their skill over many years. You may recognize members of Black Box rally team from the many regional rallies they’ve volunteered at including Rally America’s Susquehannock Trails Pro Rally and New England Forest Rally, and NASA RallySport’s Rally West Virginia and Black River Stages.

Alvin Fong stated: “I’m really excited to have the opportunity to start at International Rally New York since this is basically a home event for us. PPD Motorsport has done an excellent job putting our car together. Additionally I’d like to thank our support crew –this would not have been possible without their time and unbounded support.”

Billy Machin exclaimed “It’s all completely hopeless. COMPLETELY HOPELESS”.

Look for the Black Box rally evo at International Rally New York, the first Pro Rally event for the team! (
