Quebec Rally Cup: Yohan Tessier stands out at Perce-Neige
February 10, 2004 - It's this past weekend that the 38th Perce-Neige Rally took place in Maniwaki, Haute-Gatineau. This event was the first round of the brand new Motul Quebec Rally Cup, presented by DMS.
Organizers were very satisfied to see 20 entries for this first round, something spectators where also very happy with. The show they've seen was worth standing outside at this time of the year. It's on icy and tricky forest roads that Yohan Tessier, rally-sprint defending champion, from Montreal, manage to win the first place among rookies, first in Group 2 and first overall! Simon Dubé and Jean-Marc Alcaraz complete this 100% Volkswagen Golf overall podium.
The Perce-Neige organization has also awarded a free registration among the participating crews. Éric Lapointe and Sébastien Lefebvre had the lucky number. With RSQ's support, most of the organizations hosting the Quebec Rally Cup this year are going to give away a free registration for every 15 entries received.
The next round of the Motul Quebec Rally Cup, presented by DMS will be held on April 24, at Sanair Rally.
