WO Rally on their way to STPR

Wellsboro, Pennsylvania -- STPR 2005 Susquehannock Trail Pro Rally with it's base in Wellsboro, PA, will be the next event for WO Rally Team. It will be their second event counting towards Rally America Eastern Regional Rally Championship. Okula only once before participated at STPR in 2004 when he won Production class in both Club Rallies. Two time Production class champion in North East, Okula will compete in this rally in his 2000 Ford Focus in Group 2.

Wojtek started the season in Subaru Impreza WRX which was rented from Eugene Michniuk and his Union Auto Body in Brooklyn, NY. He competed in Rally New York 2005 last month and finished 11th overall and 2nd in class. Although the team was doing very well in their new class, they decided to step down back to their Ford Focus for the rest of the season. "We already earned points in Production GT class for this season, we still think, we have a good chance to finish up in top three in Group 2." - said Okula. It will be Okula's third event in the Focus. It is very well build vehicle with most of the parts that came from Ford Racing.

Adam Pelc: "STPR is one of the greatest rallies in US, but it is also very difficult. The weather is one of the main aspects at this event. It can be very nice and sunny one day and pooring rain the next day, but we will do our best to show that nothing is going to stop us."

It will be first event for WO Rally Team under new sponsor. "Polish American daily Super Express will be our media sponsor for the rest of the season. We are very happy that Super Express will work with us on building a strong team to make Polish Americans proud. I'm also proud to announce that the newspaper chairman will be present at the rally. We are asking all Polish fans of rally racing who are going to be at STPR to display their flags and cheer for our teams." - said crew chief Grzegorz Dorman.

The event will start on Saturday at 10.15 am from the "Green" in Wellsboro, PA and it will continue till midnight when the first competitor car will cross the finish line at Wellsboro's airport.
