Rally Gearbox Magazine is run by Mitsubishi fans. We’re not going to try to pretend otherwise. We absolutely want to share a balanced mix of stories of different people, places, and machines, but if we didn’t have personal favorites, how could we claim to be real rally fans?
When we first heard about Bill Bacon and team, we heard they were a self-funded, privateer outfit gunning for Ken Block. Today, we find they’ve passed Block and are now just 7 points behind L’Estage in the Rally America National Championship in their well-sorted Mitsubishi Evo. With New England Forest Rally approaching fast, it’s still anyone’s game, but in the interest of transparency, as much as we’d love to see a Mitsubishi 1-2 at the end of the year, we’ve got our fingers crossed for Bacon Motorsport taking home the gold.
BMS was kind enough to share a couple very nice photos with us from Oregon Trail. Thought we’d share with you. We’ve got an email in to our contact at BMS and will be trying to get a quick word in with Bill on their plan of attack for the next few weeks before NEFR.
Gearbox Magazine had a photog on-stage at STPR this weekend. Look for more pictures from that event soon!
