Bill and I started competing as a rally team in 2000. We have been spectating rallies however, for 19 years or more. During those years we spectated hard. Making as many stages as possible and lugging in as many accoutrements as possible. Each event we attended involved meeting up with our posse - a core of old friends and a few newbies that we'd turn on to rallying. They come from all across the country (and world) to join for a weekend of everything rally.
Before Bill and I met, I had been introduced to rallying through Paul Choiniere and Scott Weinheimer. Scott was Paul's first regular navigator. He, Paul and I met while attending UVM. We spectated a number of JB's rallies, the first was at STPR, but probably the most memorable was the Molson Lobster Rally in
Before rallying in the new car "Becky Lou", I had been rallying a 510 purchased from Pete Lahm in October of 1999, who campaigned the car during the 1997 season and took 2nd place in G2 in the US Pro Rally Championship. I did a few modifications to the car he built, mostly bringing it up to race trim as it hadn't been used in a few years. The new car is a '70 2 door, which was built from ground up.
