Ryan Huber Reigns Supreme at Hotly Contested LHFR

After a fantastic battle featuring one of the biggest fields in the history of the Lanark Highlands Forest Rally, it was Mississauga, Ontario's Ryan Huber and co-driver John Vanos who emerged victorious.

This, after an event that saw several contenders challenge for the top step of the podium, including Ontario Performance Rally Championship regular Chris Martin, who retired after a fuel injector problem before the 4th stage. The 2 Brits Racing entry of Nick and Kelly Mathew was also in the hunt for much of the rally, despite having problems with their launch control system, but punctured two tires on the final stage and ended up finishing fourth overall.

Once the dust settled, however, Huber and Vanos were joined by Sylvain and Simon Vincent in second position, and Maxime Rochefort and Jèrôme Milette in third.

Warren Haywood and James Drake finished first in Production GT and fifth overall, furthering Haywood's lead in the OPRC standings. In two-wheel drive, Martin Walter and Ferd Trauttmansdorff claimed the top position in their 1991 Nissan 240sx.

The next round of the regional championship, The Black Bear Rally, runs from July 13-14 in Gilmore, Ontario.
