"We couldn't ask anymore of this car" states Sans, "It worked great, and aside from throwing the power steering belt at the start of Saturdays full run to the top it worked great. Of course it was close to 13 miles and 156 hard and fast turns we had to handle. With the top near 14000 feet I was pretty beat when we got there".

The Pikes Peak International Hill Climb, held in Colorado Springs Colorado is the 2nd oldest race in the United States only beaten by the Indy 500. This event is the 4th event of the Rally-America National Series. (www.rally-america.com)

This win puts both Sans and Craig into the lead for the driver and Co-Driver National Championship. "Last year, Sans and I sat down and decided we should make an effort to win the championship", says Craig, "we acquired this car and have now moved into the lead, we are very pleased, its a long season thats left, and anything can happen, but we believe that this car and our teamwork in the car can get us to our goal".

This rally welcomed 2 new sponsors to the Jagged Edge Motorsport team: SpeedToys.com and Kemps Car Kare of Colorado Springs, Colorado.

The next race for the team will be in Maine Forest Rally on July 27-29 2005.
