Yokohama and Two AM Rallysport:
A winning combination teams up again!

Waterloo, Ontario -- Yokohama Tire Canada and Two AM Rallysport team up once again with proven rally winning combination. The team heads to Minden Ontario the weekend to compete in the Snowy Safari Rally, an all night driving test down some of the twistiest back roads in Ontario. And this year they will be campaigning a new MINI Cooper "S", the car recently named North American car of the year.

Team owner/driver Andrew Miller will be teaming up with co-driver Ian MacArthur again this year. It's a pairing the saw them win two winter rallies outright for Yokohama last year. This year the team will be on Yokohama's Premium ice and snow tire the Guardex 720.

Miller had this to say, "Winter rallies are really tough, traction and control are paramount. I'm really happy we have Yokohama back with us this year, with them on board we've got nothing to worry about."

This year the team will be using a New MINI in stock form to compete in an event whose entry list is dominated by all wheel drive cars. When asked what he thought about competing against the likes of the Subaru WRX, co-driver Ian MacArthur responded, "We've rallied a 2WD car before and have been quite successful, and the new MINI handles like it's riveted to the road, so I'm confident we'll be able to beat the heavier Subaru's"

Ten hours of competitive driving and 50 cars await the team this weekend. The rally marks Two AM Rallysport's first competitive effort for the year and will be followed up by the granddaddy
