The top story at this year’s Sno*Drift was Travis Hanson’s win in a Super Production car. Dave Mirra with his new co-driver, Marshall Clarke of the Subaru Rally Team USA finished second and Joseph Burke / Alexander Kihurani finished third in their Mitsubishi EVO IX.

Driving conditions around Altlanta, MI were treacherous as always. Roads were covered with ice and snow and they claimed open class favorites Dave Higgins and Antoine L’Estage, who didn’t finish the rally.

Next up on the Rally America roster is 100 Acre Wood Rally in Salem, MO.

Big thanks for Arthur Partyka for covering this rally.

The 2010 Susquehannock Trail Rally was spectacular. Canadian team of Antoine L’Estage and Nathalie Richard came in first place, followed by privateer Bill Bacon. Ramana Lagemann and co-driver Chrissie Beavis took third place in Open class. It looks like the Subaru domination of the Rally-America series might be a thing of the past. Mitsubishi-powered vehicles seem to be winning these days.

You can take a look at our top shots from the first day and a half. Stay tuned for a complete set of Gravity Bureau’s photos in the next few days. We’ll be also posting the complete event coverage in low-res on our Flickr stream.
