  1. Greenhouse outlasts the competition, takes the 2WD win at Sandblast Rally Photo by Rusty Probst Cheraw, South Carolina, USA Driver Chris Greenhouse and codriver Danny Norkus fought through tremendous adversity and nagging mechanical difficulties long enough to steal the 2WD win at Sandblast Rally 2018. The team had to come back from an early penalty for illegal service before the first stage had started. To make matters worse, the delay in getting to the first stage also moved them to the back of the start order which forced them to drive on a much rougher stage than the lead cars and required them to make a few dicey on-stage passes of slower cars. Their perseverance and determination would unknowingly payoff as the very fast Ford Escorts of Barry McKenna and Seamus Burke would both retire on Stage 6. But they had been carrying enough speed all day in the Dodge Neon SRT-4 to inherit first place once McKenna and Burke retired. "We had no answer for the Fords all day," said a visibly exhausted Greenhouse after the grueling event. "We simply couldn't match their pace. Our only hope was to drive our own race and try to aim for the final podium position. But we knew exactly what it meant for us when we passed both of the Fords on [Stage] six. Seamus was high-centered after a spin and Barry looked to be having a mechanical, I think. Our car took an unusual amount of damage and it's in pretty bad shape now. I wasn't really sure it would finish Stage 8 as it developed a terrible noise and vibration in the driveline somewhere. Luckily for us, our service crew was on their game and they worked very hard to get us patched up and back out on the stages all weekend. This was a true team effort, probably more so than any rally I've ever done in 13 years of competition." Chris and the Platto Motorsport are now working hard at an extensive re-prep for the next event.

  4. Rallye Défi 2016! Come ride with us as we take the win in 2WD and 4th place Overall!
  5. Chris Greenhouse makes it 2-for-2 at Rallye Défi '16 with another win photo by David Bélanger Montpellier, Québec, Canada: Driver Chris Greenhouse and codriver Brian Johnson were back on top at Rallye Défi 2016 at the third round of the Canadian Rally Championship. The team led the 2WD class from start to finish and ended the rally in 4th overall. For Chris Greenhouse, this was his highest overall finish ever at a National-level rally in North America, which is remarkable given that he competes in a two-wheel-drive car against a field full of turbocharged all-wheel-drive cars. "There was a lot of attrition at the front of the field this year," said Chris after the event. "A number of cars either went off or had mechanical problems, and this did a lot to improve our overall standing. Our goal here was to make up for a poor performance at Rallye Baie-des-Chaleurs and to win the 2WD class, which we did. To finish as high as we did in the overall rankings was a wonderful bonus for our team." The Cincinnati-based team joined forces with Platto Motorsports of Saint-Lambert-de-Lauzon, Quebec who provided service and logistic support during the event. "We were especially happy with the performance of Platto Motorsports during the services. They were able to locate, diagnose and repair a number of problems during the event that could have been quite serious if unrepaired. This was a true team effort and I give many thanks to David Morrissette of Platto Motorsports. We look forward to working with his team in the future." The team is now looking ahead to Rallye de Charlevoix in October, where they scored a very impressive 2WD win in 2015, which was punctuated last year with a 3rd-place overall finish.

  8. Motivation! this guy went out into the forest in the middle of BFE and climbed a tree to shoot rally video (merci Scott Simard!) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q0wjt6UcgnA
  9. doesn't get any more "point-of-view" than this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GhESX9tIqKY
  10. tough break for those guys, Very 1st event for that team, and they were about 2km or so away from the finish of the rally when that happened. I'll never advocate that a brand new driver should start out in turbo AWD car. That's a recipe for failure, for certain. Rally is hard enough to finish/succeed/survive in a FWD Volkswagen Golf with 90 HP. 300HP Turbo AWD isn't going to make you any faster. (not to rub it in, but we were well ahead of those guys in our FWD SRT4 when they went off, btw)
  11. not a Mopar crash but this one happened at the last rally I was at in Canada.

  13. merci, mon frère! Time to get into the car and go for a drive: I'll post up some more videos in the English-language thread over in Kills and Track chat
  14. Chris Greenhouse *impressionnant* at Rallye de Charlevoix, takes the win in 2WD photo courtesy of Benoît Nicolas Photographe Cincinnati Ohio USA: Chris Greenhouse put in a stellar drive at Rallye de Charlevoix in La Malbaie, Quebec, Canada and took another 2WD win with Columbus, Ohio-based codriver Ryan Scott calling the pace notes. The duo led the 2WD class from start to finish and ended the rally in 3rd place overall in their Dodge Neon SRT4. The mixed-surface rally had a few pure tarmac stages, combined gravel and tarmac stages, and some of the longest gravel stages in North America including the challenging 35.1 kilometer Bataram stage. This was the first time that either of them had competed at Rallye de Charlevoix, and this rally was under observation for inclusion in next year's CRC National Championship. "The Dodge Neon SRT4 performed flawlessly on both the tarmac and gravel stages over the weekend," Chris said after the event. "The crew was tasked with making a lot of changes in service due to the mixed surfaces of the rally and they performed quite well. We did have a small scare near the end of the event. We put a small crack in the oil pan on a jump earlier in the rally, and we only noticed it right before the start of Stage 10. We were leaking oil for the last 2 stages, but we kept adding oil and made it to the finish in 1st place in the Jon Nichols Cup. I couldn't be happier with our performance at Rallye de Charlevoix" The team scored an impressive 3rd place overall finish against a large number of turbocharged all-wheel-drive cars. Chris also tied Steeve Hobbs for a stage win on the the all-tarmac La Malbaie 2 stage which ran right through the middle of the city of La Malbaie. Ryan Scott was pleased with the team's performance at the event. "Chris did a very good job of preventing damage on stages that presented a lot of opportunites for disaster. These stages had a lot of large rocks on the edges and a lot of tricky corners. There weren't many good places for cutting. Credit has to go to Simon Dubé who put in a very good drive and pressured us all day. But Chris kept a good balance between being cautious and pushing hard, and it put us on the overall podium. What a great finish of a great rally!"
