Rallye Defi-St. Agathe Duhamel, round seven of the Canada Association of Rally Sports' National Series saw heated battles that could only attributed to, "Thong Fever," or as it's known in Quebec, "Thong Fievre."

The winners of the Triple Caution Thong at Rallye Defi were Steve Quigley and Cory Cross, both of Bridgewater, Nova Scotia. They drove their 1995 2.2L Subaru Impreza wagon to an impressive 13th finish overall and a fourth in the P4 class. The team was seeded 5A and started in 28th position.


Maine based Last Ditch Racing scored its first top 10 career finish at the Rallye Defi-St. Agathe-Duhamel in Quebec this past weekend, contesting a close battle with many top Canadian drivers. Defi is the seventh round of the Canadian National Rally Series. The team clinched the tenth spot after starting as the lowest positioned Open Class car in 29th position.

Driver/Owner John Cassidy and Co-Driver Dave Getchell drove their Open Class Subaru Impreza through the challenging stages with the consistency and increasing speed that has become their trademark over the 2003 season. Said Cassidy, "We always get faster as the race progresses, and we were pushing quite hard to bring home our first top ten finish. This is our second race with a fairly stock Open Class car and the potential looks substantial for future events as we continue development of the car."
