Victory at the Rally of The Tall Pines and 2018 Championship Title for Jean-Sébastien Besner and Yvan Joyal
November 25, 2018.- This weekend, the final round of the 2018 Eastern Canadian Rally Championship (ECRC) was held as part of the traditional Rally of the Tall Pines, situated in the region of Bancroft, Ontario. The event is widely known for its challenging conditions and this 2018 edition was no different. Contested in the rain and on icy roads, this year was no exception to the rule for the tight battles at the front of the pack.
Victory went to Montrealer Jean-Sébastien Besner, co-driven by Yvan Joyal in a Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution IX. This success, their fourth win in eight rallies that make up this year's ECRC, allowed Besner to be crowned champion for a second time in three years.
