The Rallye de Charlevoix was contested this past weekend as the fourth of six events in the 2021 Canadian Rally Championship, presented by Subaru. Between the sea and the mountains, in the heart of the beautifully scenic region of Charlevoix, the event was spectacular from start to finish. In the end, a new team earned its very first win in the Canadian Rally Championship: Marc-André Brisebois and Marie-France Desmarais-Trépanier.
At the wheel of a Subaru WRX STI from two-time national champions (2018-19) Test Racing, Brisebois and his co-driver were not originally the event favourites. But at the end of this rally’s 14 competitive stages, held over two days and consisting of two short asphalt stages and a dozen long gravel forest stages, the duo was able to hold off their teammates Jérôme Mailloux and Philippe Poirier, as well as Nicolas Laverdière and co-driver Patrick Lévesque, winners of the 2019 edition.
