DirtFish driving instructor Sam Albert will be returning to Merritt for his third year at the Pacific Forest Rally and will be joined by international codriver Rhianon Gelsomino. This will be Rhianon's first running of the event and the first time the two will be competing together. Their car, an open class 2004 Subaru STI, is back after a major off here last year but with a few upgrades. This year the car has been lightened and balanced as well as been outfitted with a sequential transmission. Sam and Rhianon live and breathe rally with Sam working as an instructor for DirtFish Rally School, and Rhianon running professional codriving courses with her husband Alex under OzRallyPro. Sam had considerable pace here last year and was in the running for a podium finish until he and his regular codriver, Michelle Miller, had an off at the end of the Missezula-Dillard stage. Sam is looking to redeem himself and will be pushing for a podium finish and put the last year of training to work. Be sure to stop by their car at Parc Expose for some free DirtFish swag!
