Last Ditch Racing is pleased to announce the addition of two substantial team sponsors for the 2003 season. and, a Maine based internet company, has partnered with the team to provide them with reliable, high bandwidth website hosting. This will allow the team to continue to build their growing internet presence and following. offers hosting, e-commerce solutions as well as web design and promotion services.

Team owner/driver John Cassidy says of the support, "We're very excited to be partnering with a Maine company for our web hosting. Internet presence is paramount for rally teams today, and our site has always been heavily trafficked by fans from all over the world." Cassidy sees the partnership with as natural. "As native Mainers, we feel very strongly about seeking local support for our efforts in achieving podium results.", manufacturer of rugged and affordable limited slip differentials is also coming on board with substantial support. The team had used a PhantomGrip unit in their hybrid Honda CRX/Acura rally car with superb results. The team was so pleased, they approached PhantomGrip looking for product for their current rally car, a Subaru Impreza. "The difference was night and day with the PhantomGrip unit in the Honda, and we look forward to the same improvement in traction and handling with the unit in the Impreza," says Cassidy.

The team currently runs their Impreza in the Open class in both the SCCA(USA) and CARS(Canada) rally series, and the lack of limited slip differentials has been a problem. "Although we had three podiums and a first in class at Targa Newfoundland last year, the open differentials that we have are really an issue. Rallying is all about trying to find grip and control, and the PhantomGrip unit will help us find both!"

Last Ditch Racing recently completed the Rallye International de Quebec, gaining nine spots over the low grip two day event. Their next event will be the Susquehannock Trails Pro Rally in Pennsylvania in June.
