Canadian Baie des Chaleurs Rally Race Wild Ride for Team Andrew-Comire Picard
The Canadian Baie des Chaleurs Rally was a challenge for Andrew Comire-Picard. He overcame failing brakes and finished fifth overall, climbing back from 11th overall the first night.

“From almost the first corner of the rally it was apparent the braking system wasn’t up to handling the weight of the Mitusbishi on these high-speed Baie roads,” said Comrie-Picard. “We have the best pads and fluid in the business, but the rotors and calipers couldn’t take the heat.”

The brake calipers seeped fluid and the rotors overheated during the race. Team ACP had to drive carefully and use the brakes as little as possible. They also had to brake very early. “It was a wild ride,” said guest co-driver Jen Horsey. “Andrew is usually very calm behind the wheel. I’ve never even heard him take a deep breath going into a corner. This time there were a few deep breaths when the pedal hit the floor.”
The team upped the pace on Day 2, pushing hard to move ahead of their rivals. Eventually, Team ACP ran out of time and distance to move any higher than 5th overall.
The finish solidifies the team’s third overall position in the Canadian Rally Championship Series and keeps them within reach of the title.
“We have our work cut out of for us for the rest of the year,” said Comrie-Picard. “The new Mitsubishi Evolution 10 is getting better with every event as we develop it system by system. We fully expect to compete for the win at the next round.”
Team ACP Rally uses K&N products. “I’ve used K&N since I began Rally racing more than a decade ago,” said Comrie-Picard. “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 which protects our engines from road debris. K&N is the one thing we never have to worry about when we compete.”
The Canadian Rally Championship Series has six events from coast to coast. The Rally America National Championship Series includes nine events in a cross-continent season from January to late October. ACP Rally will contest a busy season, with events on both sides of the Canadian- U.S. border.
The team’s next event will be the X Games in Los Angeles, California. From there they will return to the Canadian Championship Rally Series in September for Round 4, Rallye Defi, outside Montreal.
