The Regional rally win was taken by the fan favorite Toyota Rav4 AP4 driven by Alejandro Perusina, and co-driven by Andres Bautista.
Though the pair are still learning the car in their fourth rally in it, they impressed by putting in times that would have landed them in the top three Nationally on some stages had they been entered there.
“It was our first race out here at Ojibwe, so we were not really sure what to expect,” Perusina said.
“The roads were fast, wet, sandy, different than anything we’ve ridden on before, but the weekend honestly was really stressful. We had some issues at the start of the race limped through the first half of the day, and we were just struggling g with ourselves, some stuff with the car, but today was fun!
“We’re here, we finished, the car is all straight, we’re happy, but it was definitely a hard, long stressful weekend.”
Second to Perusina was the BMW M3 of Ryan George about 15 minutes behind. George was the fastest 2WD car by over five minutes, and was followed to the podium by Jordan Harberer and Drew Staples.
The Ojibwe Forests Rally’s conclusion means there’s only two more chances for teams to get National points on the board, with Susquehannock Trail Performance Rally in about a month, and Lake Superior Performance Rally closing the season in October.
