Comrie-Picard drove the car to a Modern division victory at the Targa Newfoundland in September, where it broke ground on the tarmac in a standard class.
“This Evo X is fantastic right out of the box, and we’ll be able to hold our own, but we have modest expectations for our debut gravel event,” he said. “Our vehicle preparation has just begun.”
The team plans to develop the Evo X for gravel over the course of the coming year, bringing performance modifications online throughout the season.
Comrie-Picard recently returned from the SEMA (Specialty Equipment Market Association) show in Las Vegas, Nevada. He signed autographs at the K&N booth in front of his Rally Car that went end-over-end at the X-games. The car was suspended from the ceiling in the K&N booth and could be seen from almost every advantage point in the Central Hall at the Las Vegas Convention Center.
“K&N filters have been our choice for a decade,” he said. “We race in a high-dust, high-speed environment and K&N keeps contaminants out of our engines.”
His next race will be the Rally of the Tall Pines. It features some of the toughest driving challenges in North America with conditions often referred to as winter roads and summer ditches. Unpredictable weather at this time of year means the roads can be slick with ice or snow. This early in the winter there are no cushioning snow banks to help keep the cars out of deep ditches.
More than 40 teams are expected to take the start at this event and Team ACP will have the first and only Evo X in the field. The rally takes place November 20-22 and includes more than 150 kilometers of competition near Bancroft, Ontario in Canada.
