Brothers André and René Leblanc
Repeat Their Rallye Perce-Neige Success !
February 3, 2019.- This past weekend, the Rallye Perce-Neige took place in Maniwaki in the Haute-Gatineau region of Québec, as the inaugural event of the 2019 Canadian and Eastern Canadian calendars. This fifty-fourth edition and the first of eight rounds in the Eastern Canadian Rally Champions (ECRC) saw victory go to André and René Leblanc, in a Subaru WRX STI. This was the second consecutive win for the brothers from the Gaspé area, after winning this event in 2018.
The Leblanc brothers practically led from the beginning to the final ECRC standings of this classic event, whose snowy and icy roads were always a challenge. In the Aigle forest, where the rally can often be won or lost, the gap remained relatively close, which was more proof of this year's strong level of competition.
