Local business owner Ian Crerar has driven his way to the podium in the World Rally Championship event in Corsica, France.
Crerar, of ClearWater Design Racing, and co-driver Pat Levesque, from Quebec, placed third in their class at the Tour de Corse on October 2.
Racing a Peugeot 208 R2, the pair completed the 10 stages of the gruelling three-day event and finished third in the R2 class.
This was the pair’s first race together, and their first in a WRC event, making the success very sweet indeed.
“This was a momentous achievement for us,” Crerar said. “Corsica is a tough ralIy–one of the classics–and I could not be happier.”
A total of 77 teams entered in the event, with the ClearWater Design Racing team the sole Canadians. Only 51 teams completed the event.
