Black Box achieves total victory

• March 26, 2014 • Leave a Comment


Like the Romans conquering Greece, the Black Box team returned to the town of Wellsboro, PA to do battle on the managed waste stages of STPR. The team set a quick pace from the onset winning the first stage of the Winter Wellsboro Rally.

On stage 2, an off by Jon Kramer and Adam Kimmett during a fast section of the rally allowed Alvin Fong and Billy Machin to essentially secure the rally win.

“We were going flat out on what was basically the drag strip section of the stage when we saw Jon running over the hill with the emergency triangles. We got on the brakes hard, but with the icy conditions, we barely managed to slow down as we approached their car”.

The team stopped to render assistance, but moved on after co-driver Adam Kimmett told them they were stuck too deep in the snow to be able to help.

For the rest of the stages the team was able to concentrate on driving a clean rally; keeping the car on the road, and out of the banks.

After winning the rally, Driver Alvin Fong had this to say “This is a great start to the eastern regional championship for us, giving us max points. We’ll be back for STPR. Winter Wellsboro was a great event; well organized, good volunteers, and the stages were in excellent condition!”
