Waterloo, Ontario -- The rally Defi-Saint-Agathe/Duhamel took place in St. Agathe Quebec this past weekend. The two AM Rallysport team of Andrew Miller and stand in co-driver Robin Feguel were poised to win the Production 3 class when a flat tire on the final stage dropped them to a disappointing 4th.
The team had driven a good rally and other than a close call with the railing of a bridge things were running fine. With a comfortable 1=-minute lead over series rival Steve Walkington going into the final 35Km leg of the event the team were hopeful for maximum points.
"We were going really well," says Miller, " I believe we were 12th over all and the fastest 2WD production car in the rally. Then a small dip just popped the tire off the rim". He goes on to say "It's a bit disheartening but that's rally for you. I'm just happy we had such a good run with a really competitive group."
The 4th place drops Andrew to second in the overall series standings with 21 points, 3 points back of Walkington. The championship may slip away however. Andrew will not be contesting the next round, as he has taken the roll of organizer for The Rally Of the Voyageurs on Sept. 28th.
The team however is happy with the season so far; having lead the class in every rally entered this year is no small achievement. The next round for the team will be the season finally, The Rally of the Tall Pines in late November.
The Subaru Canadian Rally Championship, which consists of 9 events, runs from February to November. Two AM Rallysport competes in the P3 class with help from its sponsors Volkswagen Waterloo, Dave's Tire Discounter, Frisco Auto Parts, Vibrant Performance and AM Innovations Inc.
