Congratulations to Pastrana and Edstrom

tp2Congratulations to Travis Pastrana & Christian Edstrom for winning the 2016 Rally in the 100 Acre Wood. There was a tight race all weekend between Travis and fellow SRTUSA teammate David Higgins at this years race.

After the first day of competition on Friday Travis was leading Higgins by 8 seconds but said going into Saturday that “Higgins is going to turn it up and we will have too as well if we want any shot at this!”

Throughout the second day of the rally Higgins started to win stages and claw back time on Pastrana. With 2 stages to go, Higgins was able to retake the lead by 4.9 seconds but ultimately fell to Pastrana on the last stage due to engine trouble.

Top 3 Results:

Position Car # Driver / CoDriver Overall Time
1 199 Travis Pastrana / Christian Edstrom 1:43:07.0
2 75 David Higgins / Craig Drew 1:44:49.3
3 90 Lauchlin O’Sullivan / Scott Putnam 1:53:56.9
