Trail Notes ... MORE DESERT RACING -The MORE PowderPuff race was held on October 9th in beautiful, downtown Barstow. It was an all female event, no male drivers in the race. There were 163 entries in the race, half of their entry fee going to the Cedars Sinai Cancer Clinic. The amount of dollars that went to the cancer clinic, including some donations from outside sources was $122,187. Not bad for a bunch of off road racers! The total amount of dollars donated for the five years the Powderpuff has been in existence is $508,000. Say what you will, Jim Clements and his crew are definitely some of the good guys. See the whole race story on page 18 of this issue.

l.n.fc:!C: 9™ RALLY JAPAN Ogier -Citroe_n Take The Gold By Martin Holmes Citroen Total driver Sebastien Ogier used determination and tactics to win Rally Japan, but he needed his resources in full mea-sure to beat the Citroen privateer Petter Solberg. Enjoying the chance to take advantage of a lacklustre performance by teammate Sebas-tien Loeb, Ogier led at the start and at the finish but in between Jari-Matti latvala and Miika Anttila Drove their Ford Focus RS to Photos: Maurice Selden this was definitely Solberg's race. As the rally neared the finish there was a nail biting fight between Ogi-er and Solberg, only resolved when Solberg was slowed with a broken Jari Keyomaa and Mike Stenberg took the SWRC win in Japan, they finished 9th overall in their Ford Fiesta S2000. shock absorber. Ford drivers Mikko Hirvonen and Jari-Matti Latvala made a brave display but were both frustrated by mechanical troubles, though handling problems for - Dani Sordo allowed Latvala to fin-ish on the podium. Absent from the World Rally Championship in 2009 on account of the FIA's rotation event selec-tion system, Rally Japan was based for the second time in Sapporo, the capital city of the northerly Japanese island of Hokkaido. This was the last long-haul rally of the current world championship rules, therefore the final time that World Rally Cars, as we know them, will compete on a championship event outside Europe and the penulti-mate time such cars will be active on a gravel WRC event. Last time the championship went to Hok-kaido, when it was the penultimate round of the series, Loeb was pro-claimed Drivers' champion. This year three events are still to run, so notwithstanding Loeb's currently healthy command of the series it was unlikely a title would be gained this time. Being a gravel event, Rally Japan brought changes in the official team line-ups since the all-asphalt German Rally, with Sebastien Ogi-er again teammate to Sebastien Loeb in the Citroen Total team, and Dani Sordo in the leading Citroen Junior Team entry. Hen-ning Solberg was back driving the number two Stobart entered Focus. This was the sixth tim~he WRC had visited Japan. For the irst four times the event was held at t e mid-Hokkaido city of Obihiro, where the FIA's Asia Pacific champion-ship rally is still run, before being moved to the bigger metropolis of Sapporo for the 2008 event. The main changes this year concerned a third place overall finish in Japan, they were 10 seconds out of Patrik Flodin and Goran Bergsten were the 11th place finishers overall Mikko Hirvonen and Jarmo Lehtinen drove their Ford Focus RS to a 2nd spot. in Japan, seen here in their Subaru lmpreza. sixth overall finish in Japan, seen here in the soft stuff. r~------------------------------------------~ Performance Proven for Desert & Off-Road Use 150 Heavy Duty Sizes to Choose from Detail & Pressure Wash Tanks Marine Holding & Water Tanks Bulk Storage & Waste Tanks R.V.

I Petter Solberg and Chris Patterson drift their Citroen C4 around the bend in Japan, they finished second overall in the rally. the route. The first and second days were run in the forests close to Chi-tose Airport south of Sapporo, on stages the same as before, while the final day went northwards close to where the first day stages were run in 2008, but now with new stages and with no midday service. This activity was near the town of Su-nagawa, 100km north of Sapporo which lies alongside the north-bound Hokkaido Expressway road. In addition to orthodox stages in the area, there was a superspecial in Sunagawa at a venue which is popular on Japan's specialised dirt-trial championship events. Back in Sapporo there was a new service park area at the Hokusho Kurotech Tsukisamu Dome located 1.5km away from the Sapporo Dome which still hosted its special indoor superspecial. This move freed up parking space for the superspecial spectators and permitted a larger area for merchandising at both locations. This year there were no fewer than EIGHT stages held at the Sapporo Dome superspecial (five last time) with a slightly longer route than before. This world championship event was designed to cater for the visi-tors, as it did not qualify for the All-Japan national rally series. Of the five different category cham-pions in 2009 the only reigning Japanese champion driver active in Sapporo was Fumio Nutahara, but the current series leader Katsuta was not present. Nutahara, himself a PCWRC veteran, was there in a completely different capacity. In order to drive on this rally on Yo-kohama tyres supplied by his long time sponsor it was necessary for him to drive a two-wheel-drive non-championship car, the only type of car allowed to run on WRC events using other than Pirelli tyres. But there was another surprise. He was not driving a Mitsubishi for the first time in his WRC career, which stretched back to 1999. He was driving instead a Ford, and that was another story. F4mio was competing with a special teammate called Show Aikawa, a celebrated Japanese actor, singer and film producer. It was felt inappropriate if Fumio and Show rallied in one particular type of Japanese rally car as opposed to another type. The solution therefore was to rally a Eu-ropean car! It was a good choice for Fumio, because his Fiesta R2 is the only car in the A6 class and Show's Fiesta ST is the only car in N3! Show is a great rally fan and was instrumental in arranging special filming on the Rally Japan in 2007. Counting for both the PCWRC and the SWRC, Japan could be a turning point in the PCWRC se-ries. Series leader Armindo Araujo opted to miss this event but before Dusty Times the event he led the series by 18 points (equivalent to a second plac-ing) ahead of Patrik Flodin, both of whom have contested four of their permitted six events, but Araujo was a total of 25 points in front of third driver Hayden Paddon, the equivalent of the points for a victory. This was the second of two PCWRC events which Paddon was contesting outside his PSD pro-gramme, thanks to the scholarship awarded to him by the Rally ofNZ's 'Rising Star International' scheme. The only Japanese driver in the series is Toshi Arai, lying fourth. Two European teams nominated Japanese drivers to honour their commitments on this event. The Anders Grondal team had Kyosuke Kamata and the Tommi Makinen team had Shuhei Muta. There was one driver missing in the SWRC list. This was the strange entry by the registered Rufa Sport team for the Czech gentleman driver Roman Pesek who was to compete in a Toyota S2000 of one sort or an-other but who eventually withdrew. The Stewards decided to exclude Rufa Sport from the championship which raised questions about the championship future for PG An-dersson who has driven under the Rufa Sport entry on other events, and who like the championship leader 'Xevi' Pons was never going to contest this event. Andersson was currently lying second in the series behind Pons. Pesek's with-drawal meant that only three Super 2000s were on the start line in Ja-pan - Prokop, Ketomaa and Sousa, and all in Fiestas. Once again Japan was a step into the unknown, except for the crews who had been there in 2008. Testing is forbidden, except for the support championship drivers who were entitled to their own familiarisation test the Monday before the event, until the offi-cial Shakedown, which was little technical help because it was run on the asphalt Sapporo Dome superspecial. Loeb, "I cannot say this is one of my favourite events, but the spectators are really faith-ful fans and its nice when they give you gifts. It is good to go to Japan even if we don't race in the most beautiful landscapes in the country. On the roads which were damaged in 2008 some gravel has been put into the ruts." Ogier, who had tllever been here before and was on only his second outing driving for an "M 1" team, explained the event's peculiarities, "The tracks are narrow but fast, but vegetation hides the corners and the traps they contain." Over at Ford, Hirvonen explained he was short of recent gravel road experience, having had a shortened Neste Rally and the previous gravel rally was in May. Martin Prokop and Jan Tomanek finished in second place in SWRC in Japan, 10th overall, seen here at high speed in their Ford Fiesta. Super 2000s were almost unknown in the country, except for the Pro-tons which came to the Hokkaido APRC Rally where they were found to be hopelessly undergeared for the long fast straights on that event. Paddon was in Japan for the first time, "It's not often we encounter such not-so-nice stages", adding that one narrow goat track on Day 3 was covered in mud and rocks and although the stages were generally very fast and narrow with long straigh , corners became very rutted even during recce. "A lot of corners consisted of either soft bull-dust or fist sized stones,.and I predict that cars would spend a lot of time sliding along on the sump guards." Confusingly most of the privateer entries had their competi-tion numbers changed from those in the original entry list. Then the fun began. Shake-down used the same stadium course as the special stage to be used eight times on the rally itself, but considering the same course was going to take up over a quarter hour of total competition time on the event clearly shakedown was a chance to make perfect. The smooth concrete surface did not cause concern over wearing out the precious allocation of tyres, so driv-ers went well beyond their manda-tory four faps, Latvala leading the way with eight timed runs! Of the top drivers only Loeb contented himself with four. Latvala made fastest time on his seventh run, while Raikkonen came to grief on his sixth, when he hit a concrete wall and pulled off the front right wheel. The problem was this. The barrier walls, concrete or plastic, were all painted red, so you never knew what you were going to hit, "Like I said, I'm not worried" was the Finn's reaction, looking at the sad looking Citroen. Petter Solberg was ill and was excused attendance at the FIA's press conference. Leg 1 - 6 Stages -Gravel - 116.46kms Thursday evening did not see a ceremonial start, instead the first two stages were held around the Sapporo stadium. Sebastien Ogier was quickest on both, lying 2.0 seconds in the lead overall with his team leader Sebastien Loeb already down in sixth place 2.4 seconds behind. Toshi Arai was quickest of the ten PCWRC drivers despite a problem with his handbrake and Jari Ketomaa the best of the three S2000. The first full day on Friday started off in a curious and unex-pected way. Sebastien Loeb was already off the pace but much worse was to come for the reign-ing champion. On stage three, the first orthodox stage, Loeb was sixth fastest, 24.2 seconds slower, not November 2010 behind Ogier but this time with Petter Solberg as the fastest car. Solberg was still not feeling bright, "All I really want is one more day in bed." Anyway Citroens were hold-ing the top three places, and for once, Loeb wasn't one of them. "I have no idea what is the problem. Maybe it is because I am driving over dry gravel on top of damp surfaces, but I just don't know. I don't have confidence with the car but I am pushing hard." Latvala was also making a slow start. "We had a problem receiving the split times and didn't have a clue if I was on the pace or not. Too late we discovered we weren't!" The first drama of the rally came soon after the start of stage three when Al Qassimi went off the road and rolled. On stage four, at 27km, Loeb was marginally happier, find-ing the surfaces were generally more moist, but behind him Petter was storming, ·managing fastest time again and this time taking the lead of the rally, notwithstanding a puncture on the rear left tyre. "I am still not going flat out, but I was lucky that we only drove 3km on the flat tyre." On stage five, the final stage of the morning, another driver was fastest. This time it was Henning Solberg, "All going fine, but even running only ninth car on the road the tracks are breaking up badly." Rally leader brother Petter: "Everything works well except me. I am still not feeling as sharp as I should be." Hirvonen's codriver Jarmo Lehtinen was worried about the state of the roads in the afternoon, "You cannot slow down for the ruts even if it is rough, you just have to hope for the best." Ford team chief Malcolm Wilson said it was difficult to gauge what to do. "It is a matter of judging how hard you can push the cars over the ruts. Anything can happen in that type of situation, and conditions are getting worse this afternoon." The Saturday stages were going to be no better and Sunday's, when rain was forecast, the roads would be even worse. At midday Petter led Ogier by 10.3 with Sordo third, followed by the Fords of Hirvonen and Lat-vala. 20.3 seconds separated the top five drivers, sixth placed Loeb was another 1.3 further back. Un-usual days. Ogier however was very happy and had immediately a good feeling. "The stages were rough but a bit better than expected, I was certainly anxious before the stages." Loeb was curious to know what changes the team would make to his car at service and whether it would make a difference. The hot weather was beginning to cool as clouds covered the stages and as the organizers recovered themselves after the delays on the morning's run, the afternoon loop started a half-hour late. All the WRCars had their ride heights raised but even the leading drivers started to report the cars were srill skating along on their sumpguards. Ogier said he was still learning the art of rut rallying and Sordo report-ed his Citroen was starting to lose oil. The BP Fords meanwhile were steaming ahead, Latvala making up for the delays in the morning and was closing on Ogier, but Ogier had now slipped to third place when Hirvonen moved up to sec-ond. On the second runs through the stages in the afternoon Ford drivers won every stage, with three different drivers. Loeb finished the stages saying it was impossible to do good times, a very difficult day altogether, Henning Solberg still had his ride height too low for com-fort, while Sordo got to the end of the afternoon stages with very little remaining transmission oil and the invalidid Petter wondered if his lead of 8.5 seconds would be sufficient to keep the lead if road cleaning was going to be significant in the morning • and if he was feel-ing fit and well again. He reckoned he would have time for ten hours of sleep after the two stadium stages that evening and before the restart for the second day. In the SWRC Ketomaa was again in a league of his own, de-spite suffering a loss of traction. "The traction has been worse than on any other rally this year." Prokop lost time on stage four with inter-com failure and then finding a tree lying in the road in front of him. "I drove straight over it, and was lucky we didn't do any damage." Sousa was finding the set-up of his car ineffective but was happy that he was guaranteed a third place if he kept going. In the PCWRC the Chinese driver Wang had fuel pressure problems after the start of the event but continued, but Muta went off the road on the first stage of the day and stopped. Paddon had a frightening moment when he arrived at a bend at high speed and found a safety car going slowly along the stage, luckily without making contact, while at the end of the second stage Arai went off in sight of the finish. With Arai out the only remaining competitive drivers were Flodin and Paddon, this was an event for the gentlemen drivers! Third at midday was the Brazilian Nobre, ahead of the Mexi-can Jourdain, the Japanese Kamata and the Italian Linari. Flodin: "It's a pity there isn't a fight for us. I am over a minute in front of Paddon, I really don't know how to tackle the event." Paddon meanwhile was finding the large Mitsubishi difficult to handle. Arai's accident caused a blockage on the stage and interruption times were given to drivers involved. Muhonen had gone off the road independently and rolled. Nobre (the owner of a football club back home) said the rally was like two football matches, you pay attention to what you are doing and do not worry about what else is happening. Jourdain had never seen ruts like it, "You have to hang on and go wherever the ruts take you!" In the afternoon Flodin pressed on and finished the day al-most two minutes ahead of Pad don who had slowed with a broken bot-tom suspension arm. In the smaller classes, both Nutahara and Aikawa were leading in their Fiestas, as were a private Suzuki Swift and a Toyota Yaris. Ctntin■d en ••1• 16 Page 15

Leg 2 - 6 Stages -Gravel - 121.98kms The times of the Citroen drivers on the first day baffled the Ford team as much as Citroen. Were Citroen playing a covert game of starting order tactics? Certainly Loeb's sixth running place on Day 2 presented great opportunities, and when Ogier had been passed by Hirvonen on the first afternoon, was Loeb too worried? But Loeb was nearly one minute behind the leader Petter Solberg, and that sort of deficit was clearly not a con-trolled situation. Petter said there was always a big difference between his own top form and his average form, and he was still in average mode, "But for me things are fine this weekend. Just to be leading is very important for our people in Norway. Now we wait to find out what it will be like to be first car on the road today". Citroen were try-ing to analyse Loeb's disaster. Team manager Sven Smeets: "When we checked out his car last night, we found no problem with Loeb's car, so we assume the problem was to do with opening the road. He was not in good rhythm first stage yesterday." Nice to see a smile again on the face of M-Sport chief Malcolm Wilson: "This is one of our best performances for quite a while, great to be back where we believe we should be. We have great road positions today but it is still very close. We think that Loeb paid a big price for being first car yesterday". Expectations that there would be overnight rain were unfounded. The results of the first stage of the day, in the same region and of similar character to the first stage on Day 1, was going to unlock two secrets: whether road cleaning would be significant -and what went wrong for Loeb 24 hours earlier. The answers were clear. Pet-ter Solberg, running first car made best time and Loeb, running sixth car, was still only fourth fastest. Sor-do was now happier, his transmis-sion fully replaced, but Hirvonen spun and damaged the front of his car, so Petter's lead now jumped from 9.4 seconds up to 21.5, and Latvala was now 0.5 second behind Ogier. Wilson also spun but was stuck off the road, unable to get going with no spectators around to help, 700 metres from the end of stage stuck with the front on a bank and its wheels dug into the dirt. Not a mark on the car! On the second stage, the longest stage of the rally at 33km, road cleaning suddenly came back into vogue. Fourth, sixth and fifth running cars made the top three times, Lat-vala jumping from fourth to second and now only 7.8 seconds behind Petter Solberg. On the shorter third stage the running order was again significant and the top posi-tions bunched up further. During Page 16 the morning stages Loeb closed up from 54.4 seconds to 40.2, but was still lying sixth and still more than 20 seconds behind the car in front. Sordo gained his first scratch time of the rally, the seventh driver to do this. Latvala momentarily dropped back, "It was a mistake in my notes" (there was just too much information in the notes, explained codriver Miikka Anttila), Henning Solberg hit a rock which created a serious vibration and was curious, "My car always wants to stay in the ruts and slowing down and the car is always driving too sideways." As the cars arrived at the service park in the midday came a shock. Petter Solberg was given a ten second pen-alty for a jump start at the start of stage 13, the last stage of the morn-ing loop. This dropped him back to third place and moved Latvala up to the lead and suddenly the rally became incredibly exciting, with 5. 7 seconds separating the top four places, and Loeb 34.3 seconds behind the new leader. What would conditions be like for the second pass? First car would continue to suffer, as the lines cleared by the slower cars would not be what the fastest cars would have liked. Once again it was Petter who suffered the most, but it didn't happen like that on stage 14, a repeat of the first stage of the day. Like on the first pass Petter was again fastest, but only just. 1.3 seconds separated the first four cars through the stage, and the four leading drivers on the event. Sordo was not so happy in the ruts while Loeb admitted he was flat out but was 2.4 seconds slower. On adjusted times, Latvala led Ogier by 0.3 seconds as the cars headed out again, and after the first stage this increased to 2.6 seconds but then shortly before the end of stage 15, a repeat of the longest stage, the front right driveshaft broke, and his lead shrunk to 0.3 second and the future was ominou·s, with the 9km forest stage and two more su-perspecials to come before repairs were possible. "Great for turning to the right, awful understeer when turning left." On stage 16 Lat-vala lost 17 seconds and dropped to fourth, but the fastest car once again was Petter, who regained the lead. Ogier dropped 10 seconds on this section, the point at which the restart order for the final morn-ing was defi,ned, and on the final split Ogier lost about eight sec-onds, which in the circumstances dropped him from the leading position to third. Citroen got their tactical calculations right. Final morning order was therefore Petter, Hirvonen, Ogier, Latvala. Latvala was anxious ..about how much fur-ther time he would lose back in the stadiums while the driver who was still mystified was Loeb, who had dropped back a further four sec-onds during the afternoon, "I tried hard to no avail". Well, he told us beforehand that this was an event he didn't care for. On his first run through the superspecial the three wheeling driver Latvala had a spin and then he lost another five sec-onds on the second, so at the end of the day he has now fifth, 30. 7 seconds behind the leader. In PCWRC, Arai did not re-start but Muhonen and Muta did. Flodin continued in the lead with Paddon just over two minutes be-hind, but on the second stage of the day the New Zealander had a broken brake caliper and did most of the long stage wi~ no brakes and that put him towards four min-utes behind. Nobre lost time on the second stage after a puncture, having to drive 10km on the flat. "Rally life is full of surprises, just like football!" Muhonen stopped when his radiator was damaged as he did not want to damage the en-gine. Paddon won all the stages in the afternoon but was still well over three minutes behind. In SWRC, Ketomaa held nearly a minute lead over Prokop while Sousa stopped on the first stage of the day with an obscure electrical problem. Ketoma_a said the car was not easily driveable, but at the mid-day service this was improved and he continued just under a minute in front of Prokop. The Group N Mitsubishis and Subarus were not the only Japanese cars on the event. Toyotas were leading two classes: AS with a Yaris, A7 with a Run X, Daihatsu leading N 1 and Suzuki lgnis NZ, while the other class was N3 which was being led by Aikawa's Fiesta. Leg 3 - 4 Stages -Gravel - 45.14kms Any rumours that the weather would turn were wrong, it was a cloudless morning to the north of Sapporo. Latvala vvas not fazed by his driveshaft misfortune but aware that his chances of a podium result were not now so strong. 64 cars made the restart, including Wilson, Sousa and Muhonen. Of the eight stages of the day four were superspecials (two at the Sunagawa dirt trial track and the final two at the stadium), two were at a very fast short venue and the other two were longer (17km) and very twisty stage. Obviously the set-up for the cars would have to be a compromise. There was drama straightaway, when Kimi Raikkonen slid off the road, unable to regain the road, and retired on the first stage of the day. Then on the second stage Hirvonen had a hydraulic differ-ential pump failure, making gear changing difficult and affecting the central differential. Ogier found his tactical time loss the evening before had paid dividends and took the lead from Petter. Hirvonen dropped back behind both Sordo and his teammate Latvala. Sud-denly the rally leaders were split November 2010 up. Ogier and Hirvonen separated by 2. 7 seconds suddenly found they had a buffer of over 20 seconds from their two pursuers who were 5.5 seconds apart, with Hirvonen fractionally behind and Loeb an-other 17 seconds behind. There were still dramas to come. Petter had a broken shock absorber and a steering problem on the first run through the long stage. He kept this secret but it was a worrying time as he then tackled the next su-perspecial, then the two remaining normal stages, and the final three superspecials. It was the final move of the event. Hirvonen meanwhile was struggling, losing ground and finally Loeb got ahead of him in to fifth place, while Sordo was in despair and was unable to resist the charging Latvala who was back on to podium potential. Sebastien Ogier gained his second world championship win with Petter Sol-berg second and Jari-Matti Latvala in third ahead of the Citroens of Dani Sordo and Sebastien Loeb. Hayden Paddon made most of the scratch times in PCWRC today while the battle for third place between Linari and Joudain ended when Jourdain went off the road at the flying finish of stage 23 and had suspension damage while Muta went off the road at the end of stage 22. Then on stage 23 Nobre, who had been suffering overheating, had the engine fail and he retired, leaving only six of the original ten cars still running. In SWRC Sousa now stopped for good because of electrical trouble. Citroen Total now lead BP Ford by 95 points in the Makes championship with the Citroen Junior Team out of contention. In the Drivers' series Loeb now leads Ogier by 43 points, with Latvala in third, and still in the title race, though a further 26 points behind. In the support championships Prokop has now drawn level with Pons in the lead of the SWRC series ahead of Ketomaa in third although he has won the category on more events than Pons and Prokop. Following the pre-event exclusion of the Rufa Team, PG Andersson lost all the points he had scored under their entry but retained the 25 points from his win as a Guest driver in Sweden. In the teams WRC Cup the top three positions remain unchanged with Pons' Nupel team ahead of Red Bull. Ketomaa's win brings the Shanghai FCACA their third win in the category and they now lie fourth. Team Ford/Quinta do Lorde and Barwa WRT are now both out of the title race in this category.

M.O.R.E. POWDERPUFF ¼ I', ~~': R.1<:,.-i,gt n., Shelby Reid Takes Class 1 And overall By Steve Ruddick Photos: Trackside Photo Shelby Reid was the Class 1 winner as well as the overall winner at the MORE Powder Puff event, seen here heading' for the checkers. It was a beautiful day to go off road racing in the Mojave Desert in Barstow in southern California. The weekend started out with a lot of motor homes and campers and RVs full of racing enthusiasts and their supporters heading for Barstow and the 2010 M.O.R.E. Powder Puff race to support Cedars-Sinai Breast Cancer Institute. It was the Fifth An-nual Powder Puff "Race For A Cure" to benefit women's breast cancer research; (and it was John Lennon's 70th birthday). This event keeps get-ting bigger and better every year. It was sunny and warm and breezy and not a cloud was in the sky. Main Pit row was a long linear line of campers and RVs everywhere. This time it was the women who got to race and show their stuff -while the guys wore pink and manned up in the pits and cheered them on. It was a sight to behold. It was a 27.5 mile course; clockwise, with five Road Crossings (RX) and five "Designated Spectator Areas". The sweet roar and rumble of raw horsepower permeated the air. I love the smell of race gas exhaust in the mornings. The race was divided in two Groups. Group 1 included Classes Su, 5/16, 9, 1300 (4cyl), 1450, 7s, 1700, 11, UTV and 6000; and raced from 8:30AM-noon. Group 2 raced from Noon-3:30PM and included Classes 1, 10, 12, 1600, 1400, 8, 1300 (6/8cyl), 7u and 3000. Everybody raced to complete the most laps they could in each heat, the fastest. It was a good-sized crowd that came out to support a good cause - and to dem-onstrate solidarity for the sport. Shelby Reid in car #168 was the Overall and Group 2 Winner and completed six laps in 3:30:31 at 47.9 mph. Reid also donated $2500 to Cedars-Sinai from her supporters and sponsors. Ann Anderson was the Group 1 Overall Winner in ...... Pamela Hall was the big winner in the Trophy Challenge Division, Pam had six minutes on her competition at the checkers. Andrea Scanlan took her class with relative ease, she had 20 minutes on her competition when she took the checkered flag. car #5011. Shawna Wesely was the Grand Prize winner of the Yamaha Rhino 700R4. The tally for 2010 at the time I'm writing this is up to $122,187 in contributions. It was announced that as a result of last year's contributions the Cedars-Sinai Breast Cancer Institute was able to hire two more research specialists to their staff. Thank You all for your support of this great cause. Group 1: Morning Heat-CLASS 5 unlimited: Nine start-ers. Five racers completed four laps. The top four winners all finished within seven minutes of each other; close. Ann Anderson pulled out to an early lead in car #5011 and won Fast Lap on Lap 1 in 4lm:50s at 40.2 mph.

Calkins said: "What an awesome time!!! I loved it! It was my first time racing the puff, first time racing ever, and I have the race bug now! Can't wait until next year, I'll be there for sure!!! I caught my hand in the steering wheel at the second lap, later found out I broke my thumb in two places. Thanks again for letting me race with you all!!!

(i.e. "she had a hard time following co-driver signs"). Kristen told it this way: "I sruffed it twice. We were side-by-side with #567 on lap 4 and got caught in the dirt. Then I sruffed it again at RX2, caught a flat tire on a hill and .. stopped. The guys from Checkers fixed it I thought we were done for sure, but we finished!"

After spending a day pre-running on Friday (and eating a fantastic BBQ prepared by Sru and Locos Mocos), the team was ready for racing on Sarurday morning. First in the truck was Karen Koe-nig and co-driver Ashley Robinson. Prior to running the Powder Puff race, Karen only had a few hours of off-road training in her husband's Total Chaos modified Toyota. You would never know it by the speed IIPABE TIRE MOUNTS Ii JAt:KII with which she overtook at least 40 cars that left the start line before her. With her co-driver, Ashley Robin-son, they flew past cars and caught air over the desert terrain, all while giggling like, well, girls! The original plan was for Karen to run the first lap and then rum the truck over to the second driver, Tina Brink. No way! She was having too much fun and pressed on for another lap and created a considerable lead over the next truck in her class. After an incredible pit stop with the guys dressed in full prom dresses, pink wigs and uh, breasts, they changed drivers/ co-drivers and swapped hel-mets in record time. Tina Brink got her chance for laps 3 and 4 of the day sitting beside her co-driver, Adrianne Patterson. Lap 3 started out fast and fun and soon came to a halt when she buried the truck in the sandy wash. Her off-road experience kicked in and she was able to rock the truck out of the ditch (can you say 1st/Reverse 50 times?). With the incredible lead that Karen had created, Tina took lap 4 nice and conservative and brought the truck back with 3 minutes to spare in their quest for 1st place! "This was our first PP and we had so much fun. Passing everybody on the first lap was a blast!" Team Koenig Racing can't wait until next year's event to do it all over again. Go!

It was fun for everyone. There were several rollovers around Mile Marker 21 but no serious injuries were re-ported. Everybody I talked to said, "Let's do it again". I concur. Let's all remember - The watchers are watch-ing. Every successful event like The Race For A Cure' makes it harder for Them' to stop off road racing because it is bad Public Relations to do so under such circumstances. WARNING!! CAUTION!! BE-WARE!! -The BLM Rangers and County Sheriff were on high-level patrol giving out citations and warn-ings for no helmets, people riding in truck beds, and similar safety stuff. Even this Ace Reporter has to sign a liability waiver form and get wrist-banded now too. I'm told I'm not supposed to drive through the main pits to get interviews or info now. Yea right - that ain't gonna happen eh. This Ace Reporter will do what-ever it takes to get the good dirt for our readers. The only 'danger' I en-countered was almost getting shot with a pressurized water 'cannon', and a bunch of crazy guys running amuck in pink shirts and dresses with fake b**bs and wigs. YoiKes. I keep telling ya' this job ain't so easy. Seriously, it is dangerous out there and many eyes are watching, so do take extra caution and care; be safe~; From my conversations with many different eyes, it seems the 'New' Rules are actually the same old rules that have always been in effect but have not always been enforced.

l I ____ _:Jj, I HAWTHORNE 225 Sam Does It Again! 1st Overall· 1st Class 1 Text & Photos: Troy Robinson VORRA's last desert race of the 2010 season was the annual pilgrim-age to Hawthorne Nevada situated about 2 ½ south east of Reno Nevada on highway 95. This is a favorite race for a lot of racers because of the 3-day Labor Day weekend format marking the end of the summer. This race course is 55 miles around and 4-laps would be the required dis-tance for the pro-classes. The course is also very diverse in offering racers most of what the desert can throw at you. The first 5 miles puts you thru some fast rocky sections as we head east or start "down" the power line road. About mile 7 is where we junc-tion with the Vegas to Reno course and start the sand whoops all the way to check point 1. From there it's a tum uphill for the long fast climb where horsepower is your friend. Last year we raced down this and reached speeds of over 105 mph in our class 6 truck, this year racing uphill only 65 mph. Once the road plateaus at the top the silt beds start. Deep soft silt but virgin enough not to cause many problems as it's straight and not chopped up yet. About race mile 30 comes the "rollercoaster"; 15-miles of straight-over-crest with little air time and no gotcha's. This is very hair raising at speed when you know you should lift but stay in the gas all the way to check point 2. After a short silt bed at the checkpoint starts the rocky section for the last 20-miles. This sec-tion has a lot of rocks, sheer cliffs, hill climbs and steep drop offs. The last 5-miles is a 1300 foot elevation drop in to the finish line for a pit if you need it then back out. In the wake of the tragedy in Lu-cerne Valley we are all forced to make changes at our desert races as stipulat-ed by the BLM most notably 25mph speed limit in all pit areas, age limits in the pits and the 150' spectator rule. While Vorra races have always been a safe family place the rules were Sam Cothrun took the Group T lead on the second lap and that's where he remained, he had half an hour on his competition at the checkers. put out there and were all followed by each and every race fan to continue racing in the desert as we love it. The weekends schedule had a small tum out of the welcoming party and drawing for starting positions Friday night. Tech and registration all day Saturday at the El Capitan Casino in downtown with impound in the parking lot. This was followed by a parade of all cars up and down Main Street then the drivers meeting at the El Capitan. Immediately fol-lowing the drivers meeting was the Northern Nevada premiere of Dezert People 8, the latest installment in the Dezert People series which has Vorra as a main title sponsor, the first time a race series has sponsored a DP movie. The race would start Sunday morning at 8am with the class 9, 11 and UTVs followed an hour later by the "bigger" classes. Taking his 5th class 1 win for the season and the 3rd overall title as well was once again Sam Berri (149). Sam had a 4: 11 lead after the first lap and just extended that little by little as the race went on. At the finish line his win was 12: 13 over 2nd place as he had a 51 mph average for the day. 2nd place in class 1 was Mike Viola (134). Viola plugged along all day with very little downtime despite a stuck radio mic making it unable to hear the crew. He had a flat on lap 3, then later thinking he had another flat on the final lap slowed his pace just a bit allowing 3rd place to get closer and closer. Then after almost endoing on the roller coaster he pulled into pit 2 for a once over where 3rd place got around making him give chase. But Viola started last in class so he just needed to stay close enough to take the spot. At the finish line he was physically 3rd but corrected time put him in 2nd, 2:55 ahead of 3rd place. Taking that third spot in class 1 was JJ Schnarr (102). Schnarr had the luck of the draw and was first off the line but after the first lap was running in the 5th spot. Schnarr, who was driving Mike Decker's car this race, was back on the pace making a run for a higher spot at the finish. He passed Viola on the last lap in the pits at check point 2 but didn't have the speed in the rocks to pull the lead he needed to overcome the start deficit and settled for 3rd place in class. Shannon Harwell (132) was run-ning in the 2nd spot after the first lap but just 5 miles into lap 2 the rear axle broke and the socket to remove the CV bolts stripped out. A replacement socket would have to be sent in from start finish for him to make repairs. Then in the heat of getting the car going again they didn't strap in the jack or tool bags correctly littering the course with tools and parts. While Shannon did finish the race in 4th on a borrowed motor, he is still look-ing for his tool purses if anyone has seen them. Making the long drive from Ari-zona for his first Vorra race was Tom Wood (1574). Tom was physically on Sam Berri's bumper on the first lap but pulled in to the pits for a lengthy stop dropping nearly 35 minutes. He would rally back and on the 3rd lap set the fastest lap of the day at a 1:02:08. Tom finished the race in 6th place, just 7:27 seconds behind Harwell. Rounding out the finishers in class 1 was Bruce Fields (858). Fields brought out his heavy metal truck and raced with the buggies this race so as not to mess up the points in Group T. Fields was running in the 4th spot Red Team Racing had a decent day, they took the Class 10 win with ease although Bill Jarvis was the winner in the Class 8 contest, Bill had a very long last lap but, for the first 3 laps but dropped over ;:th=e~y=h=a=d=_t_o=s=u=f;-fi_e=r=t-h __ "-o=u_g~_h ___ a=h=o="-"-e=n=d-o __ u __ s_l.:::y=lo=n.:g=-s_e=c=o-n __ d ___ la~p=·=====.-;;=-=-=-:;=-=.-=-,,....;:as=th=e=o=n::;l:::;y:;g=u:=y=in=cl=a=ss=he=to=o=k=t=h=e=w=1=·n=. =::::;;::::::;;--;;::..=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.=.= ______ c_o_nt_Tn_u_■d_•_n_p_•_••-3_1 ___ _ Jon Crowley is shown in second place in the UTV race, we don't know how that happened as he clearly beat his competition to the Ben Phillips drove to a silver medal finish in Group Tat Hawthorne, flag on time. here starting his last lap at the Hawthorne event.

Terry Shelton led the Sportsman Class all the way, he had no problems and took the checkers with well over an hour in hand at the finish. The class 9 win went to Jay Schro-eder (903) who took the lead from the start and never looked back. Dave Oram (909) finished 2nd place in class. the third race on the truck and its first win. Taking 2nd in Group Twas Ben Phillips (6043). Ben was in the lead creating dust for 1 -¼ laps until it worked and he shook off the chal-lengers. Phillips stopped in the pits at the end of lap 2 for gas and brake fluid that was spilling on his shoes and that moved Cothrun to the lead but the team missed the pass. He thought he had the win when he crossed the line only to find the red truck of Cothrun sitting there first. In his first race in another Trophy Lite truck was Marty Morehead (444). Marty ran a consistent race with little downtime working his way up from 6th on lap 1 to 4th on lap two then finally the 3rd place podium at the finish line. Another Vorra newcomer Bent Downing (808) brought out his beau-tiful orange retro Chevy Blazer and ran consistent lap times with little downtime for the 4th place finish in class. Chris Gray (8003) had a flat tire just 2 miles off the start and was up to 3rd on lap 2 but some major downtime on lap 3 dropped them to 5th where they finished for the day. Mike Koenig (603) was running in Phillips dust for the first 1 -¼ laps until the dust screen kicked up by the little trophy lite worked and mike hit a rock on the passenger side taking out both right side rims. We only carry 1 spare. It took mike over an hour to get a rim fixed and the truck movin a in on! to it a rock and take out the driveline a mile later. Handing the truck off to me at the start of lap 3 I quickly went into sur-vival mode only to have the rear lug studs sheer off as a result of the rock impact 10 miles earlier. After making repairs and another hour of down-time we were moving again, last car running on the course but finishing the race in 6th place. Class 10 win went to Red Team Racing (1029) who were running in 2nd after the first lap behind Patrick Timmons (1030). Timmons would blow up the motor at mile 29 though. Then Red Team would have over 2 ½ hours of down time on lap 2 and was back running in 4th place in class. At-trition would affect the class though as they were running 2nd on lap 3 then were the sole finishers in class at the end. Alex Hall (1019) was running consistent laps at 1:14 for lap 1 and 2 placing him in 5th then 2nd and on lap 3 he was running 1st after the attrition. But the attrition would get him in the end two as he dropped out only completing the 3 laps. Taking the class 8 win and the lone entry in the class was Bill Jarvis (8028). Jarvis completed all 4 laps at a decent pace finishing 11th overall. Winning sportsman class again this year was Terry Shelton (81). This team has been on a tear taking all but 1 sportsman win this year even with the largest class field in the race. Vince Viola had a fairly decent race, he finished in second place in the Class 1 effort, he was half an hour in arrears at the checkers. Shelton was in the lead from the start and never relinquished it all the way to the checkers. After a 9-year "Vorracation" Gary Steele (44) was back in the desert once again. Steele started 2nd off the line and had a flat on the first lap dropping him to 4th. He had no issues on lap 2 and moved up to 2nd place. Lap 3 handed him 2 more flats but never dropped out of the 2nd spot. On the last lap the clutch would act up adding over an hour to his time but he still held on t.o the 2nd spot finish for the day. David Ackles (707) brought his beautiful Total Chaos equipped Toy-ota down from Oregon to race. For-tunately his truck has 4wd as needed In class 11 Gary Herrod ( 1112) was the winner after he completed all 3 laps where his competition Richard Palasik ( 1107) was taking dirt samples with the roof as he rolled half way thru the lap. Palasik parked the car after the first lap. In the UTV lass Dennis Jean (1959) edged out Jon Crowley (1965) for the class win as both UTV's fin-ished the required 3 laps. All in all it was a great safe race as we finished out the 2010 Vorra desert season. We now shift our attention to the ultra fast short course final 2 fall series races at Prairil City ii Sacramento. _ · _; Gary Steele was doing just fine in the Sportsman race, a terribly long 4th lap dropped him to second place. Chris Gray had a terribly long third lap and it was expensive, Chris A two and a half hour fourth lap didn't help Bruce Field a lot, he Mike Koenig had two slow laps and it cost him, Mike finished in the finished in fifth place in the Group T Division. finally finished in sixth place in the Class 1 battle. sixth spot in the Group T battle at Hawthorne.

1 <E$)RDUND 6 . curt Geer Takes Limited Buggy By Homer Eubanks Big changes have been made to the Lucas Oil Regional Off Road Series held at Glen Helen Raceway. First off, race six of the seven race series was moveo from the previous track over to the new, redesigned and up-dated, permanent short course track. Held on Oct 2, 2010, race six once again featured a variety of off-road vehicles performing on the .8-mile long course chal-lenging the drivers with every obstacle imaginable from a short course off-road course. Another improvement was the addition of Etimeit, electronic timin and scoring, which provides racers with indebt information on their individual performance and provides immediate overall results. The fans gained from the move as well with the ad-dition of grandstands, food vendor, and upgraded toilet fa-cilities. Best of all is that with all these amenities Off-Road Direc-tor Bob Beyer has managed to keep prices affordable for both racers and fans. With only two events remain-ing this season Beyer pointed out that Championship points were on the line. Onl 11 oints Photos: Trackside Photo separated John Holmes and Phil Bollman in the Pro Buggy Unlimited class. The Limited Buggy title had Gary Williams with an apparent comfortable lead over Curt Geer but Geer showed at this event he wasn't ready to relinquish c-laim to the title just yet. Trenton Briley came into the event leading the Kart 450 Modified with 80 points to Hunt's 63. The Os-born's have the Kart 250 Modi-fied class pretty well sewn up as Bryan has 69 points to Alex's 62 points and their closest com-etitor is T ler Winbur with Jeff Hildebrandt placed third in Race #1, he took the gold medal in ·Race #2 and took the overall win in the Pilot/Odyssey contest. 32 points. The closest points margin is in the Kart JRl class as Danny Mollineda leads with 61 points over Dylan Winbury's 60 points. In the Kart JR2 class Shelby Anderson has earned 59 point with Myles Cheek (38) the closest competition. The UTV classes are all close as Ryan Field leads the UTV Modified 38 to 27 over Scott Santellan. John Dempsey leads the UTV Unlimited class with 50 earned points over Taylor George earn-ing 36 points. Brad Bauder is in a tight battle with Doug Mittag as only one point separate the two (43-42). Looking good so far in the Pilot/Revolt/Stadium Lite/Odyessy division was Jeff Pechtel leading with 166 points over the 104 of Jose Enriquez. Let's go to the racing action. Pro Unlimited Buggies In the Pro Unlimited Buggy division John Holmes quick-ly let the other competitors know he wants to keep his series points lead by setting fast time in practice then coming back in race one and taking a con-vincing win. With Holmes out by himself the action was be-tween Phil Bollman and Myan Spaccarelli. Spaccarelli held his second spot for several laps but got sideways and Bollman was able to take over his position. Spaccarelli wrestled back con-trol of his buggy to hold third. At the finish the running order remained the same. Race two saw Garrett George jump out front early with Myan Spaccarelli second and a hard charging John Holmes dogging Spaccarelli's every move. As the pack tightened up Hol-mes found a way to get around not only Spaccarelli but also George as well. Spacarelli spun on the landing after the turn one jump, and as Holmes went wide in turn two, George took over the lead. Holmes decided to hold the throttle down over the rough section allowing him to pull alongside George and by holding the inside line for turn three retook control of the race. George came back in turn four but later in the same lap George lost the lead when Holmes out powered him down the back stretch. George made a final attempt on the last lap but got loose in the rough section allowing Holmes to drive on to victory. George drove under the checkers second and Spaccarelli was third. Overall Holmes in-creased his dominance in the class with repeat wins. Myan Spaccarelli was second with his 3-3 effort and Phil Bollman earned third with his 2-5 results. Kart 450 One of the more heated races was in the 450 Kart class be-tween Mitch Guthrie and Zac Hunt. Before things got heated up the race was halted on lap three after Bradley Morris took a hard roll in turn one. His car did come out worse than he as all four tires were flat and it appeared to have damaged the suspension. Morris walked away a bit shaken. Nick Schons had an easy time of it, he took the Champ Truck win in both races and was the easy overall winner for the class. Jeff Musgrave took the win in both Prerunner Full races and was awarded the overall win for the class, here nicely airborne. Guthrie held the lead from the beginning but had the re-lentless pressure from Hunt throughout the race. Lap after lap the two were so close one Continued on page 34 Seen here nicely airborne, Ryan Field literally flew to the overall win In the UTV Unlimited races it was John Dempsey taking the win in Chris Rosa is seen here on his way to the overall UTV SR1 win at in the UTV Modified races, here going to the flag. both heats, John is seen here racing to the checkers.

Once again the finish order was Hunt, Guthrie and Osborn. UTV-Pilots Doug Mittag set fast time in practice among the 12 UTV -Pilot competitors. When the first green flag came out Mittag again seemed to have all the power he needed as he quickly moved around Chris Rosa then established a comfortable lead. Suddenly Mittag slowed and came to a stop on the front stretch. This put Rosa back in charge but he had pressure from John Dempsey. These two had a heated battle for several laps until Dempsey elbowed his way around just before entering the front stretch.

When the dust had settled in race one Andy Hill in his Class 1 car had domi-nated the event. Nick Schons drove his Champ Truck to a convincing second place after passing his way through the pack. The second race got the fans excited ::is Schons quickly moved into second behind Hill. Schons, lacking the power or suspension of the Class 1 of Hill's machine, made an all out effort for the lead in his 4-cyclinder Champ Truck. For several laps Schons closed up on the leader and a couple of times actually came within strik-ing distance. Just as the crowd The Class 12 contest saw Mike Donahue taking the win in both races, Mike is seen here nicely airborne on his way to the checkers. A nice day for Shelby Anderson in the Kart Jr 2 races, Shelby took first place in both races and was awarded the overall win for the class. thought he might have a chance of challenging Hill, Schons broke his left front suspension and ended the race limping around the track in last place.

Once out front Geer headed straight for the checkers. Ehrenberg had to settle for sec-ond and Gary Williams, current series leader, was third.

l.AJc2C:: SJRD RALLYE DE FRANCE Loeb/Citroen Take The Gold By Martin Holmes Everyone there will remem-ber this for a very long time, the weekend when Sebastien Loeb performed in front of people from Alsace, his own people, won the rally and clinched his seventh suc-cessive World Driver's title. Every-thing went absolutely according to plan. The community of Alsace and Vosges gave their wholeheart-ed support, all wanting to be part of the great occasion, and Sebas-tien did not let them down at all. World championship rallying had never been in that region before. Nominally this was an asphalt event, though the muddy surfaces made that definition suspect. Ford's Jari-Matti Latvala did his best to challenge the Citroens, but was hard pressed even to finish fourth behind the three leading Citroens. Loeb's teammate Dani Sordo finished second -an incred-ible 17th time he has finished runner up on an WRC event, and together Loeb and Sordo made sure that the Citroen Total team won the Manufacturers' title. The Rallye de France was some-thing special. Besides being the first time that France's world championship rally had been held on the mainland, after a year's gap since the Tour de Corse was held in 2008, there was the chance Sebastien Loeb might win his seventh successive Drivers' title here. A chance which might not happen in future. And the reason the Strasbourg community were so enthusiastic to host the event was that this is Sebastien Loeb's heartland territory. That chance had been increasing with every rally this season. Despite Loeb's disappointing result in Japan it could still happen here, but what-ever happened, the most excited people would be at the little town of Haguenau, the birthplace of Loeb, some 30km north of Stras-bourg where two of the final stages of the event were held. To have the event on Metropolitan terri-tory has been the realisation of an unrequited dream many years ago of the FlA President, Jean-Marie Balestre. Aside from the Loeb factor the Rallye de France promised to be an action packed occasion. The Ceremonial Start (at Palace Kle-ber, Strasbourg) was held on the same day that BMW, Citroen and Ford launched their revolutionary 2011 World Rally Car models at the Paris Salon. Back in Stras-bourg, this was the second and final time this year that all the Photos: Maurice Selden support activities (Super 2000, Junior, Production Car and the Pirelli Star Drivers) would run on the same event. As one further attraction a round of the French championship series was run in conjunction with the world cham-pionship rally. The Strasbourg base was cho-sen after tenders were issued by the French Federation for the necessary rights, the defeated ap-plicants being those from Dijon and Limoges regions as well as the traditional Tour de Corse. Using roads in both the Alsace and Vosges regions, south of Stras-bourg, this is traditional asphalt rallying territory for France, al-though on this occasion there was also a sprinkling of gravel stretches, as in Rally Deutschland, and to greater extent to come on RaUy Catalunya. The Rally HQ and service parks were based at the Zenith centre 5km east of the centre of Strasbourg and the Shakedown was run in parkland alongside. The rally was held over three days with two loops tackled twice each day. On the Friday the stages were centred in the Vosges mountains of Haut Rhin towards Mulhouse culminating in tqe Grand Ballon stage, the high-Patrick Sandell and Emil Axelsson drove their Skoda Fabia to a second place finish in SWRC, they finished 10th overall as well. est in the region and surely one of the most picturesque. Views can be had of the distant Alps as well as the Alsace plain and Mont Blanc. Day 2 was held south west of Colmar in the Bas Rhin area, the most demanding test being the 35.4km Pays d'Ormont stage. The final day was to the north, in a military area near the town of Bitche, and the pilgrimage stages at Haguenau. In the ranks of the WRC' reg-istered teams, there was another change in the Stobart M-Sport Ford Rally Team with their second registered entry to be driven by Ken Block, the team's fi fth dif-ferent driver in five rallies, quite an honour for a driver who had never scored world championship points. There was drama when he crashed his Focus at a test on the Monday before the event and me-chanics had to repair this before the start. Since Japan, Al Qassimi and Villagra had swopped cars. The leading Citroens and Fords used cars that had been seen previ-ously in Germany, in Loeb's case his car making its fourth outing. It had already won on the previous three occasions. Although there were 13 World Rally Cars on the start list, after the abundance at Rallye Deutsch-land there was a disappointing lack of private World Rally Cars, although a surprise entry was that of the 2008 World Touring Car Champion Yvan Muller in a Xsara, an ex-factory fully active transmission car run on the event by Petter's crew. Another eight WRCs, however, were listed in the national championship event. An item of note was that there were no fewer than four Norwe-gians competing in Super 2000 cars. Three were non-champion-ship entries, for Henning Solberg (with a late replacement codriver Stephane Prevot, as Ilka Minor had back injuries in an accident codriving Manfred Stohl in a minor event in Austria), Mads Ostberg driving these cars as non SWRC championship entries and Andreas Mikkelsen, who had taken the chance to enter a Skoda run by Skoda Rally Team Italy instead of the Ford he has been driving in IRC events. The fourth Norwegian was Eyvind Brynildsen competing in the SWRC category. For all the support categories France was their penultimate qual-ifying event. There were two guest drive rs, Jean-Sebastien Vigio n in the SWRC in a Peugeot and Jeremi Ancian in a Suzuki in the JWRC. Features of the PCWRC category: The Russian entry usu-ally driven by Patrik Flodin had the Scottish driver Dave Weston at the wheel while the Chinese driver Wang Rui was back in a new style Subaru Impreza after driving an old version on Rally Japan. Features in the JWRC: Different drivers have won each of the preceding five rounds. The entry for the Grand Na-tional category was surprisingly high, including the current na-tional champion of Belgium (Pe-ter Tsjoen) and the Frenchman Bryan Bouffier who is currently the Polish champion. The maxi-mum permitted number of 70 entries in the WRC, and 70 in the oversubscribed national event had been accepted, so the event was a sell-out! The Grand Na-tional was arranged because the national French championship event Alsace Vosges was cancelled this year, with the aim of giving organisational opportunities for the WRC event. The French championship factor, however, brought inevitable complications to the event, not least because this runs to different rules to the world championship. It was run over 18 stages (all the stages of the event, except the final two held on the final day) but for national cham-pionship points only the first 12 stages counted. Dani Sordo and Diego Vallejo finished second overall in their Citroen C4 in France, seen here at high speed. Petter Solberg and Chris Patterson at high speed before an admiring crowd, they finished third overall for the French rally. The enormity of the opera-tion became apparent when the rally came to town. The splendid Zenith facility on the outskirts of Strasbourg had a severe shortage of access roads, it was so bad that rally cars was ordered to drive through a field to get to the area. There were countless detailed changes of plans, one instruction was 24 pages long! Drivers re-ported that the stages on the first day were the most demanding, those on the second were likely to become very muddy, while the military roads on the third were quite different to the military roads on Rallye Deutschland. Few sharp corners, hardly any concrete roads or hinkelsteins! Continued on page 38 Dusty Times November 2010 Page 37

At the ter Solberg proved when he went end of the second stage· Loeb ex-round and round, finally making plained: "This was the stage which I drove on my first ever rally back in the '90s!" Latvala admitted he had made several errors on the first stage "I was hesitating all the time." The same for Ken Block, "No way did I want to go off the road like I did before the rally!" Stage three was delayed for 35 minutes when a spectator, who had come to watch his hero, died at the side of the stage and an ambulance was called to evacuate him. Conditions continued to be mixed with patches of dampness and a lot of dirt on the surface as the rally proceeded to the Col de Grand Ballon where the second part of the stage was very greasy and Block dropped out of the top ten when his brakes disappeared. Yvan Muller stopped on the road section leading to the remote mid-day service while lying a promising 12th overall, when he ran out of fuel. Large crowds came to see the cars at service at the picturesque town ofMulhouse. Loeb had won every stage of the first loop, hold-ing a lead of over 14. 7 seconds over Ogier. The best non Citroen was fifth placed Latvala, nearly a half minute behind.

"I was lucky, I nearly went off !" This was Ford's first asphalt stage win for nearly a year. Dirt on the road made the stages slower the second time through and it only got worse through the day. To the delight of Latvala he made another best time on the last stage of the day. Hirvonen slid into a bank and was lucky not to dam-age the car as did Villagra. Block had gearshift problems and had to use the manual system. He had the hydraulic troubles solved but incurred a 1 m40s penalty at ser-vice. As the day unfolded the race started for the Day 2 running or-der, with early running preferred, before the surfaces got covered with mud. Sordo got ahead of Ogier into second and Latvala was now in front of Petter Solberg who was fourth. On the final stage of the day Turan went off the road and retired. The spectators were out in full force so that the rally, already run-ning 30 minutes late, was delayed another half hour. There was no time for the drivers to talk when they arrived back in Strasbourg, they drove straight into the ar-rival control having struggled to make the 120km section in the 80 minutes allowed. One codriver commented, "It was crazy, the only way we could ever arrive on time was by breaking the speed limits, especially those through vil-lages." Penalties for lateness were not applied. At the end of the day the top six drivers were clearly in a league of their own, though now Citroens only held the first three places. Significantly Latvala was over a minute ahead of teammate Hirvonen. In SWRC Eyvind Brynildsen went into the lead and was quick-est despite a spin on stage two, but then he went•off on stage three and damaged a wheel. Non championship S2000 driver Mads Ostberg was leading Group N but slid off the road on stage two and marshals refused to let specta-tors help him back and Henning Solberg took the Group N lead. ' Then Yves Lemes went off at the same spot and collided with Ost-berg's stranded Fiesta. Michael Kosciuszko took the lead after stage three but then Brynildsen was back in the lead after four. Patrik Sandell dropped from sec-ond to fourth when he lost his brakes. Julien Maurin went off backwards on stage three and could not restart after a stone had jammed the exhaust pipe. Martin Prokop suffered power steering problems from the second stage and had a depressing time, which due to the Remote Service rules meant it could not be repaired un-til return to the service park at the end of the day, "Stupid rules, it would have been easy to repair it. I am afraid this little problem will cost me the championship!" San-dell was pressing hard to finish the day second, 4.6 seconds behind the leader Brynildsen. Bernardo Sousa's disappointing run came to an end on the final stage of the day. Series leader before the event, Xevi Pons, was lying fifth, suffering powersteering failure. In PCWRC Hayden Paddon went straight in to the lead, ahead of Armindo Araujo, despite suf-fering overheating brakes. Among Paddon's fellow PSD colleagues Nick Georgiou stopped in stage one with transmission failure, Ott Tanak had a spin on the first stage while Peter Horsey went off on stage four. Suddenly with only one stage to go Araujo's life was made easier when Paddon stopped with alternator failure which had flattened the battery. Araujo was almost a minute in front of Anders Grondal while Tanak passed Toshi Arai and was third at the end of the day. Guest driver Jean-Sebastien Vigion was lying fifth but retired with engine failure on his brand new Peugeot. Nuno Barroso went off the road in the Tommi Makinen Subaru on the last stage. In JWRC Mathieu Arzeno's Citroen S 1600 led for the first three stages but then on stage four he lost a lot of time trying to restart his engine after it stalled. Thierry Neuville got ahead with Hans Weijs in front of fellow Dutchman Kevin Abbring in the first R3 car. Yves Lemes stopped on stage four with engine dam-age after hitting Ostberg's Fiesta. Harry Hunt in the Fiesta R2 was delayed by a gear linkage problem which was repaired at midday seF-i vice. Neuville increased his lead ahead of Weijs, while Arzeno was recovering from his early problems and was up to third. Abbring's battle against the Super 1600 cars ended when he went off the road and rolled his car downhill. His codriver Erwin Mombaerts was taken to hospital. Alex Broccoli's run came to an end as he was wait-ing to refuel. He unknowingly had a fuel leak which Neuville's codriver Nicolas Klinger spotted - just before the whole car caught fire. News on Mombaerts was that he had suffered concussion, ad-mitting he remembered nothing of the accident. Story of the rally so far had to be the performance of non cham-pionship Mikkelsen, running absolutely last on the road. On the first stage he was fifth quick-est Group N car behind Ostberg, Henning, Brynildsen and Kos-ciuszko. After stage three he had scored the fastest Group N tiine of all and was up to second behind Henning. Mikkelsen's charge had no bounds, by stage seven he had made four best times in Group N and had taken the Group N lead. His moment of glory came to end, however, when there was a severe propshaft vibration and immedi-ately afterwards the powersteering failed. Mikkelsen was lucky to lose only a little over a minute through that. This was proving to be a very fast rally, despite the slippery conditions. Over half the .stages had been won at almost 120kph average, notwithstanding the presence of speed-reducing chicanes en route. Dusty Times

Day 2 - 8 Stages -Asphalt - 149.22kms 7 crews restarted including Yvan Muller. It was another damp day and Loeb saw the chance to cement his grip· on the event. The first two stages were quite different in character to those the day before, narrower, low level, straight and corners, with several intentional stretches of gravel, but halfway through the second stage of the loop it was more mountain-ous and the roads more flowing and not so fast. On the first stage Latvala slid into some rocks, for-tunately, doing negligible damage but this upset his rhythm for the rest of the stage and that let Pet-ter Solberg past. On the second stage Kimi Raikkonen went off the road and got stuck without any available spectators to help. He eventually resumed but lost nearly a half minute, "Stupid low speed accident". The third stage of the loop was the big one, 35km long and where Loeb the King showed his true style. He was fastest by 18 seconds! Ogier slid off into a tree, happily without damage, but lost touch with second placed Sordo. By the midday halt Loeb's position seemed insurmountable, "It has been a very good morning, we have done two very good times. I pushed hard in stages where I felt comfortable. This afternoon will be very tricky. Again I had the advantage of driving first car on the road this morning, I am wondering what to do this afternoon!" Khalid Al Qassimi had a miserable time when he went off and dropped a couple of minutes while spectators pushed him back again, he also dropped onds ahead of Latvala. Raikkonen stopped when he slid wide and his Citroen got beached beside the road. On the final stage of the day Latvala spun and dropped to 20 seconds behind Solberg who was eyeing the car of Sordo, which was just over a half minute ahead of him. Federico Villagra went off the road into a vineyard and emerged with his engine covered with grapes. Through the day the organisers had problems with the number of spectators and the delays increased. Only one of the special stages held so far on Day 2 had started at the originally scheduled time. Meanwhile there was curiosity about the hopes for Ogier. If he restarted the final day, he would still be in seventh (manufacturers) position, notwith-standing the penalties for missing a couple of stages. In SWRC only Vigion (engine failure) was unable to restart. After the second stage of the day Sandell was just 1.6 seconds be-hind Brynildsen. Ketomaa had got ahead of Kosciuszko who lost a minute going off into some vine-yards and then had a spin. Pons had begun his recovery and was now fourth. Sandell then had a couple of spins and Brynildsen was some 20 seconds ahead. The long face belonged to Prokop, "Ev-erything went wrong yesterday and we have no hope of recovering!" Pons was struggling, admitting to a few spins. Llovera stopped with gearbox failure. Then there was drama on the final stage of the day when the long time leader Brynildsen punctured, and dropped 14 seconds, and Sandell was into the lead. Brynildsen was more determined than ever, "I don't do second, tomorrow I will win ... " Sandell had a non functioning fuel gauge and found he had been carrying far too much fuel. Ketomaa had an electronic problem which caused the engine to cut out. Sousa reported he had a very long spin. In the non-cham-pionship S2000s, Mikkelsen had rear differential problems which caused a loss of traction and on the final stage he was forced to slow with a repeat of the vibration caused by the propshaft. Ostberg had a broken cross-member and then slid into a bank when he had to edge one wheel off the road in order to avoid Raikkonen's strand-ed car. Henning meanwhile con-tinued to beam from ear to ear, as did his guest codriver Stephane Prevot, who said, "This is far more exciting than WRC ... !" In PCWRC the cars of Horsey and Barroso were too badly dam-aged to restart. Araujo was in a class of his own, winning stage after stage. After the second stage of the day he was a minute in front of Grondal, who had a spin. Jourdain had two punctures. Raschi had a puncture on stage ten. Arai stopped to change a flat tyre in stage 11. Pad don slid off into ·the vinyards on stage nine and then had bent steering two stages later. Gianluca Linari slid off the road on stage 12 and could not get back again. Fabio Frisiero rolled on the penultimate stage at the same place where Paddon had two punctures when he clipped a rock but only had one spare (so he stopped). Araujo was now cruising and suddenly his lead was increased further when Grondal Jari Ketomaa and Mika Stenberg were the 11th overall finishers in the Rally Of France, here at high speed on the course. had two punctures on the final stage of the day and he was unable to drive to the service because he only had one spare tyre. Grondal, "I feel sure the tyres pulled off the rims because we had a long wait at the start of the stage, and the tyres had cooled down. Benefit-ing from Grondal's problem was Tanak, now up to second. In JWRC Lemes, Broccolr and Abbring were all missing at the restart. After two stages leader Neuville was more than a minute ahead of Weijs but then had a slow puncture on the third stage and lost a minute and dropped to fourth. Weijs was in the lead with Arzeno in third, who took a risk and fitted dry tyres, a mistake, and dropped to fourth. Ancian was ly-ing second despite going off at the end of stage 12 on the flying finish and destroying an organisers' tim-ing sensor. Mystery of the JWRC was the inexplicable lack of pace shown by Aaron Burkart, quite out of form, quite apart from losing time with two punctures on stage 11. On the penultimate stage of the day three of the top four JWRC cars all punctured, Ancian took the lead, over a min-ute ahead of Weijs, Neuville and Arzeno. Day 3 - 3 Stages -Asphalt - 33.lOkms The Stewards were as usual at work overnight. A French Mit-subishi privateer driver Jen Pascal Besson was a regular for them, firstly he was discovered as having short-length underwear, penalty Euros 300 and then when his fuel was analysed it was found to con-tain far too much ethanol con-tent. He explained that this was the usual French gravel rally and rally raid fuel, penalty - exclusion. JWRC driver Slalov was found to have hand-cut his tyres in a remote Continued on page 40 off the leader board, let-----------------------------------------------------------ting Henning Solberg's and Eyvind Brynildsen's S2000 cars up in to the top ten. The most miserable driver of all, however, was Hirvonen, completely at sea in the con-ditions and now nearly two minutes behind his team-mate Latvala. He had no idea what his problem was. Another driver in trouble was Muller, delayed when a wheel broke. After the midday halt the rain had gone away and the stages dried out fast. On stage 15, repeat of the longest stage, Ogier went off and damaged the front suspension which livened up the battle for places. Petter was fastest, scoring his first scratch time of the event, and as the sun came out Hirvonen finally perked up and was second quick-est, quite his best stage of the rally - despite a broken wheel. Petter was up to third place 35.1 seconds behind Sordo and 12.3 sec-Dusty Times 53rd Rallye de France (F) Strasbourg 1/3.10.2010 WCR round 11, SWRC/WRCC round 9, PCWRC round 8, JWRC round 5 WCR WCD S PC 1 (1) Sebastien LOEB/Daniel Elena F/MC Citroen C4 WAC AL791AR (F) 3h.05m.49.3s. 2 (2) Dani SORDO/Diego Vallejo E Citroen C4 WAC AL934PD (F) 3h.06m.25.0s. 3 (11) Petter Solberg/Chris Patterson N/GB Citroen C4 WAC AP607AM (F) 3h.07m.06.1s.

service, unaware that this was only permitted (for the JWRC) in the main s r".ki:!1~itl(: pehalty three minute .l1'Ahother JWRC driver in trouble was Valdez, for failing to enter this event, given the usual hefty fine and having his licence suspended. The fever in Strasbourg was unbounded. Rally veterans said they could not remember such large crowds lining even the road sections in the 30 years, maybe since the original Argentina WRC events. Even at 0700 Sebastien Loeb was being mobbed by auto-graph hunting fans as he arrived at the pare ferme ready for the final leg of the rally. Things were looking good. The weather at last was clear and sunny, for only the second time this rally a stage started at its originally scheduled time. Ken Block had only four more stages to clear before finally completing the route of a W RC event. The man who had rallied at 200kph on ice without studs in the USA said that was not half as tricky as this event. Raikkonen and Frisiero both declined to re-. start so 51 cars set off for the last four stages, two round the military ground at Bitche, and two round Loeb's birthplace. Once again the top drivers all selected scift tyres. Behind Loeb the gloves were off. Petter Solberg wanted to catch Sordo and take second, Latvala wanted to catch Petter for third. Lataval damaged the side of his car on a chicane at Haguenau. Then on the second stage Wilson's clutch started slipping, which al-lowed Villagra to pull in front of him. After the first two stages all that remained was another run through their miliary stage and a return to Haguenau, but spectator issues caused the second military stage (19) to be cancelled thus ef-fectively ending the hopes of all, except for Citroen who in one rally had gained the two major titles in the sport. Sandell continued to hold the lead in the SWRC, ahead of Brynildsen, Ketomaa and Kos-ciuszko. On what proved to be the penultimate stage E.yvind Brynild-sen slid off the road and rolled. Sandell's lead was increased to over two minutes but now in front of Ketomaa. Pons fought hard and got ahead of Kosciuszko into third after stage 18 but after the final stage the positions were reversed again and Kosciuszko finished third ahead of Pons while Brynildsen had dropped back to finish fifth. In PCWRC Araujo cruised home but had a last minute scare when a brake pipe broke on the multi-lap final stage. He lost a lot of time pulling over so as not to block other cars but he was still over two minutes in front of Tanak. Third place Arai made some best times, but he was over three minutes behind the Estonian. All seven remaining cars in JWRC restarted for the final day and reached the finish. Victory for Julien Ancian brought a sec-ond win to Suzuki this year, equal-ling Citroens wins in the category. The other places all went to regu-lar competitors with Weijs second ahead of Neuville and Arzeno. As the premier titles were settled in favour of Sebastien Loeb and Citroen Total WRT, the contenders in the support series had narrowed. Xevi Pons has held the lead in the SWRC since April and going to the final qualifying event leads Jari Ket"omaa by seven points and Patrick Sandell by just nine points ... Out of contention now is the reigning JWRC champion Martin Prokop, although he holds second place after France. Armindo Araujo retook the lead in the PCWRC from Patrik Flodin, who did not start here. Araujo, the reigning champion in the category goes to the final round 18 points ahead of Flo-din, his only remaining rival. Aaron Burkart continues to lead the JWRC after an appalling rally where he was off the pace throughout. Seven points adrift of Burkart is Hans Weijs, exactly the number of points Weijs lost to the winning guest driver here. Karl Kruuda also still has the chance of the title but as he is just 17 years of age and therefore not allowed to drive on Spanish roads, he will not be able to com-pete on the final round. With the major titles secured and only two rounds of the 2010 calendar to run, what are the chances of Dani Sordo winning the next round, and his home event, in Spain? For more than a day of the 2009 event the greatest gap between him and Loeb was 2.1 seconds, he has now secured 2nd place 17 times out of the 82 WRC starts he has made, but can he go one better? We will know soon enough. lJ\J2C:: Christmas· Is coming!!!!!!!!!!! It's coming Fast!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It's Time To Get Those Dusty Times Subscriptions For Your Family And crew . .

BFGoodrich Tires, working in conjunction with Tread Lightly!® and United Four Wheel Drive As-sociations (UFWDA), chose the Yacolt Burn trail system because of its scenic beauty and potential it presents to off.road enthusi-asts. Piston's Wild Motorsports is working closely with the Wash-ington State Department of Natu-ral Resources (DNR) and other motorized user groups to design this diverse and challenging trail system for all off-road enthusiasts. Construction for the trail is in full force and opening date for public access to the trails is yet to be announced (mid-summer to late 2011 is hoped). Upon comple-tion, the Yacolt Burn off-road recreation area will offer 30-plus miles of four-wheel trails, and 40-plus miles of trails for all-terrain vehicles (ATVs). "Offering spectacular views of the Cascade Mountains and remarkable scenery Yacolt Burn will bring off-road enthusiasts an experience that is worth looking forward to," said Steve Calder, product category manager, light truck off-road and commercial, BFGoodrich Tires. "We're hon-ored to provide the Piston's Wild Motorsports club with a grant to help in the conservation efforts for this amazing off-road traH system." In addition to the existing Jones Creek Trailhead, the plan also makes room for a large camp-ground and trailhead in the heart of the forest. Elevations in the planning area range from 600 feet to 3,500 feet and major streams within the south part of the planning area flow south to the Washougal River, leading to the stunning Columbia River Gorge. Plans to create trails and features that will range from mild to wild '-re set, with the intention of creat-ing an OHV recreation area. "It was such an honor just to be nominated for this award," said Crystal Crowder, president of the Piston's Wild Motorsports club. "To actually be added to the list of remarkable clubs and trails speaks volumes about each individual member in this club who has worked so hard to reclaim access for 4x4's in the Yacolt Burn State Forest." Celebrating its five-year an-niversary, the BFGoodrich Tires Outstanding Trails program is dedicated to the responsible use, and preservation of, off-road trails while providing aid in the trails' conservation efforts. Since its inception, the Outstanding Trails program has recognized 19 off-road trails in 16 states and two in Canada. The program has also given more than $70,000 in grants to clubs and seen more than 2,500 participants at trail events. Both Tread Lightly! And UF-WDA are non-profit organiza-tions dedicated to responsible and ethical outdoor recreation. BFGoodrich Tires collaborated with these two groups to select the finest off-road trails, and will continue to work with these or-ganizations on restoration and education initiatives. United Four Wheel Drive As-sociations is the world's leading representative of all-brand four wheel-drive enthusiasts. UFWDA benefits, developed and tested true over the past 30 years, in-clude four wheel drive safety and awareness education; user ethics programs such as adopt-a-road, conservation volunteer, and vol-unteer trail patrol; assistance with new club formation; education seminars to aid four wheelers through complex state and fed-eral programs affecting trail ac-cess; internet forums designed to connect members globally and instantaneously; and unrestrained member access to its full-time legislative advocate and nation-ally-recognized attorney working exclusively for four wheel drive enthusiasts to protect access and prevent road and trail closures.

Tread Lightly!® is a national nonprofit organization with a mis-sion to promote responsible rec-reation through ethics education and stewardship. Tread Lightly!'s strategic educational message, along with its training and resto-ration initiatives are designed to instill an ethic of responsibility in outdoor enthusiasts and the industries that serve them. The program is long-term in scope with a goal to balance the needs of the people who enjoy out-door recreation with the needs of the environment. The federal government recognizes this by ac-knowledging Tread Lightly! as a sole-source service provider of education and training on how to be environmentally and socially responsible while using motorized and mechanized vehicles in off-highway settings.

Crossing over, we noticed smoke from a car below us. The car was stopped and had the beginnings of a Car-B-Que (Ed.: + 10). Martin (Gill) saw the fire, also. I grabbed an extin-guisher arid ran over, spraying the car. The guy who was driving the car-o-fire decided to pour his gallon water jug on the engine. Well, he found that burn-ing oil doesn't like water. So I finished off the extinguisher, as Martin arrived, suggesting that we unhook the battery, and we were once again headed home." -Mike McClintock Best In The Desert "Parker Chal-lenge" - Parker, AZ, USA, October 15-17, 2010 Two 32-mile loops per day- BitD's "Laughlin, so to speak.

Made it back to River Road where soine locals 'fed' us beer (Top of the Food Pyramid -Ed.) until we were retrieved. The course was dustier than xxx - but good. Chad went balls-to-the-wall dismantling the front end so we could race on Sunday and completed the task with many thanks to Ryan from TCS, Harley's crew, 1J Flores, and the Lawrences. Sunday went well until the last twelve miles when we came up on a stuck '7200' truck with the driver and codawg running around - which caused us to get stuck. I got out to see ifl could push, while Chad was jawing the driver. (I could hear him over the motor.) The driver came over with a shovel - but Chad scared him off - the driver was running away with shovel in hand. While we were in this cluster we lost two positions. BITD ended up pulling us out.
