Antoine L’Estage Unfazed by the Last Minute Entry of PWRC Champion, Martin Rowe at the 2010 Rally of The Tall Pines

Nathalie Richard and Antoine L’Estage are just one rally win away from their perfect season. The question is: will Subaru’s last minute move factor in derailing their goal. Picture Neil McDaid
The 2010 Rally of the Tall Pines start order was re-posted last night with the addition of the last minute entry of PWRC Champion Martin Rowe. Martin will drive a second car for Team Subaru Canada in an effort for them to secure the manufacture's championship. This will give Pat Richard the opportunity to push hard for the Canadian Rally Championship driver’s title.
This is the second year in a row that Subaru has entered two cars at Rally of the Tall Pines in a last ditch effort to grab the championship victory from Antoine L’Estage. Just last year, Subaru called on the services of Canadian rally ace Frank Sprongl.
“Ace for Hire.” One would have to assume that PWRC Champion Martin Rowe will surely factor for the victory at Rally of the Tall Pines 2010. Picture Neil McDaid

When asked would he make any adjustments Antoine L'Estage stated, “We are sticking with our original plan. Tall Pines is one of my favorite rallies, I really feel comfortable on these stages and we will see who will be here tomorrow night." Cars are scheduled to leave the Dungannon Recreation Center around 9am Saturday morning.

A very focused Pat Richard had very little to say as he headed out to the shakedown stage on Friday evening. Picture Neil McDaid
