ACP will kick off his 2009 Rally America campaign in Michigan on January 30-31. “Growing up on the prairies, I had plenty of opportunity to master winter conditions,” said Comrie-Picard. “I love Sno Drift, dragging the tail through a snow bank at 130 mph is the essence of winter rally.”

Team ACP has developed a reputation as a winter-weather threat. Comrie-Picard took the win at Sno Drift in 2006 and finished second overall at the event last year. “Winter driving is about taking calculated risks,” said Comrie-Picard. “Success means taking as few chances as possible in conditions that can kick you really hard if you make a mistake.”

From deep snow to glare ice ACP said he is equipped to face a whole range of track conditions. Comrie-Picard and co-driver Marc Goldfarb will contest Sno Drift in the NOS Energy Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution IX. The team is also developing a Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution X that they debuted last November in Canada.

Team ACP Rally uses K&N Engineering products on their vehicles. “I’ve used K&N since I began Rally racing ten years ago,” said Comrie-Picard. “We compete under tough conditions, with dust, mud and water splashes. We do the most extreme things we can do in a car and K&N is the perfect formula for our turbo charged motors. There is no compromise with K&N.”

The Rally America national championship includs nine events across the country, which begins with Sno Drift and wraps up in October with the Lake Superior Performance Rally.
