Snowmoose Motorsports resumes its rally run at Pacific Forest.

Bainbridge Island, WA - This weekend, Ross Foster and Snowmoose Motorsport co-driver Alan Perry resume their run at five rallies in five weeks by competing in the Pacific Forest Rally, based out of Merritt, British Columbia, Canada. This will be followed by the Dryad Quest and Shitepoke rallies in Shelton, WA the following weekend.

Pacific Forest is round 4 of the Western Canadian Championship and will be a National rally next year. It is run on gravel roads for approximately 100 miles of special stage. Merritt, BC is an approximately three hour drive east, then north of Vancouver. The altitude is supposed to range from 1800 to 4500 feet. Co-driver Perry has competed in several TSD rallies in the area and should find the stages familiar. Spring has finally come to the Pacific Northwest, so the weather should be sunny and the roads should be dry.

The team has been competitive in the two previous outings. At the Bighorn Rally, based out of Edson, Alberta, they finished third in the regional event and 11th on the road (factoring in the national entries). At the Rocky Mountain Rally, based out of Calgary, Alberta, they went into the penultimate stage second in the regional event and seventh on the road. Unfortunately, the car got high-centered on the snow and ended up finishing well back in the standings.

The car, a 1988 Mazda 323GTX, has been threatening to fail, but continues to soldier on. "If the car lasts, we should do OK. Ross is a really fast driver and is getting faster. I am looking forward to this rally," noted Perry.
