The Pacific Forest Rally, held amidst typical autumn weather conditions, was once again favourable for Antoine L’Estage, Nathalie Richard, and the entire Rockstar Energy Drink Team as they took the lead from the very first stage on Friday : « it’s an event that has always been good to me. In nine consecutive PFR starts, I’ve finished on the podium every single year and this was my and Nathalie’s fifth victory here » comments Antoine L'Estage. The multi-time champion from Quebec adds : « We didn’t need to win this weekend but we’re thrilled! I have to give big thanks to John, Paul, and Mathieu for giving me such a great car. I’m really proud of our win and especially proud of another national title ».

The duo dominated the event, winning 15 of the 16 competitive stages, and amassing a lead of over nine minutes ahead of the second place finishers. With this victory, L’Estage and Richard earn enough points to single-handedly win the Canadian 2012 Manufacturer’s championship for Mitsubishi.

Co-driver Nathalie Richard adds : « a fifth career Canadian title is really something special for us, capping off another exceptional season for the entire Rockstar Energy Drink Team. Winning the manufacturer’s title for Mitsubishi once again is the icing on the cake! ».
