Victory at Hyperfest RallySprint

Wow what a weekend!  This year we were finally able to get out to Hyperfest as a rally team and give folks ride-alongs. Just last year, we were getting ride-alongs from many of the same rally drivers that we were now driving with. We spent all day getting the evo sideways, drifting our rear bumper straight off the car! I believe the total number of rally rides given was OVER 9000! Thanks to all the teams, organizers, for making the ride-alongs possible. Thanks to all the Hyperfest attendees that showed up for rally ride-alongs and lined up for a ride in our evo! The second day was the Hyperfest RallySprint, a NASA Atlantic Rally Championship event. After our 2nd to last run, Charlie and Jeannie Sherrill were just 2 seconds ahead of us. We decided to go for it on our last run. Amber and I gave the rally evo all she had, jumping things that weren't meant to be jumped, throwing the car into corners full-blown-sideways. We grabbed fourth gear at 90-95mph in a normally 3rd gear straight. Everything just clicked together, and we were able to knock 14 seconds off our fastest time, taking the overall win. [youtube_video][/youtube_video] Thanks to the entire Black Box rally crew; Mike, William, Cat, and Billy. They spent a lot of time getting the car ready and setup for this event. At the event, they made sure the car was in tip-top shape for us so that we could concentrate on doing our job. If you have any picture/video from hyperfest, do send them our way; alvin at blackboxrally dot com or Looking forward to next weekend's Rally NY RallySprint! Cheers, Alvin Fong
