“Rally America National Championship 2016”

With B-Spec completing its 4th full season of competition in the Rally America National Championship, we saw Honda Performance Development earn the number one spot again.  Jordan Guitar and Brian Penza squeezed in with the win in their 2015 Honda FIT car #735. – “We couldn’t be happier with how we finished here at LSPR. Thanks to the Fit reliability, amazing performance from our Maxxis tires, and Brian’s dependable notes, we were able to take another win in the B-spec class and clinch the Championship!” from Jordan about their LSPR 2016 finish.  Keanna Erickson-Chang and co-driver Ole Holter in their 2016 Ford Fiesta were within seconds of knocking Guitar/Penza out of the top spot.   Keanna and Ole pushed hard all year. After finishing LSPR 2016, Keanna explained, “It’s been great to see progressively more competitive times throughout the season.  This year has been awesome and filled with great competition and great camaraderie.  Jordan was fast and consistent throughout the season and deserved to win the championship.  It’s still my rookie year and I’m looking forward to hopefully continuing the battle in the future!

“The B-Spec championship is also up for grabs with Jordan Guitar in the Honda Fit leading Keanna Erickson-Chang by only 4 points.  Keanna and co-driver Ole Holter have been steadily increasing their pace now that most of their Ford Fiesta’s engine programming gremlins that plauged them earlier in the season have been resolved.  It’s Honda’s 1.6L normally aspirated Fit with a CVT vs. Ford’s 1.0L turbo with a manual transmission.  Who will have the edge on the slippery forest roads of LSPR?”
