The Waste Management Winter Rally

14 competitors battle the snow in woodland racing action!

 

by Andrew Moore - February 23, 2015

The 4th Annual Winter Performance Rally was held on Saturday, February 21 on the property of its sponsor, Waste Management, Inc. A total of 14 competitors participated in the Rally America-sanctioned event. For more information on the competitors, you can visit WMWR.info.

Rallying is a form of auto racing that takes place on public or private roads with modified or specially built road-legal cars. This racing is distinguished by its point-to-point format in which participants and their co-drivers drive between set control points called special stages. Each driver leaves the starting point of each stage at set intervals, and their completion time – from start to finish – for that stage is recorded. The race is won by the driver with the shortest total completion time of all the stages. Unlike many other motorsports, drivers are not allowed a practice run. The teams are permitted a single pass at a public speed limit to review the course before the event. During the event, the co-driver will provide route instructions to the driver as they complete the course, sometimes at speeds exceeding 100 miles-per-hour.

Reaper Motorsports co-driver James Quattro joined Home Page in the studio following the event. Quattro, along with his partner Jeremy Keck, placed third overall in the race. “There’s an old racing saying, ‘Slow is fast.’” said Quattro. “When you’re in those slick sections, you really have to go slow to be fast. In order to be first, you must first finish. If you’re stuck in a snowbank, you’re never going to make it to the finish.”

The competitors and workers of the Winter Rally gathered for a banquet at the Whitneyville Fairgrounds on Saturday evening following the completion of the racing stages. Jon Kramer & Adam Kimmet finished first with a total stage time of 1 hour, 15 mins and 14 seconds. Alex Kuklove and Chris Rosato placed second with 1 hour, 20 minutes and 29 seconds. Local team Jeremy Keck and James Quattro came in third place overall, with a total stage time of 1 hour, 24 minutes and 33 seconds. Another local team, Antonio Esposito and Philip Barnes placed sixth overall and took first in class, with a clear time of 1 hour, 37 minutes and 18 seconds. (For more results, watch the video above or visit WMWR.info.)

The Waste Management Winter Rally and Susquehannock Trail Performance Rally both rely heavily on volunteers to run the events. Home Page would like to personally thank all who contributed to making these events happen. If you would like to get involved in this summer’s rally, you can visit their website at STPR.org.

Special thanks to Ben Benner, Merlin Benner and Matt Quimby of Remote Intelligence for providing aerial footage of the event.
