Our first full day of rallying is behind us now.
Weather was sun, rain, mist, fog and mid teens Celsius.
Perfect Newfoundland weather.
John Sr. tried co-piloting for the first two races, which he and Craig managed to zero out! However, motion sickness got the better of John, so he had to drive the last three races.
End of day standings: John Jr. and Justin, car #9, first overall, tied with four others. John Sr. and Craig, 2nd in GT and Nicole and Cody 4th in GT.
The Minis were bashed around a bit but held up to beating. The M3 however, lost a rear shock absorber strut support in the 2nd last race. A friendly local supplied tools. Then along with the Rittenhouse team, he and Justin were able to cobble it back together temporarily and well enough to finish the last race within the minimum required time line.
Team spirits are high. And everyone is enjoying the experience on the Rock so far.
