Two AM Rallysport
Waterloo, Ontario -- Kitchener-Waterloo based Two AM Rallysport is ready to take their 1995 VW Golf to its limit this weekend on the most challenging rally road Ontario has to offer. The Fall Swift Rapids Rally held in Orillia, Ontario on September 9 in conjunction with Big Brothers, uses a road with more twists and turns than any other. The Swift Rapids road has no less than 176 major turns in just over 12 kilometres. With one turn on average every 70 metres, this rally is the ultimate challenge for both the car and its driver/co-driver team of Andrew Miller and Martyn Appleford.
When the team last ran the rally (June 17th of this year) they were given car #13 for the event. This proved unlucky indeed as the rally Volkswagen suffered a mechanical failure; the tow vehicle was first misplaced then later suffered a flat tire, and Two AM's trailer lost a fender. This time, having been placed a much luckier 17th on the road, Two AM Rallysport hopes that a summer of testing will pay off with a top finish.
In addition to being a excellent rally for drivers, Swift Rapids is a spectators dream since it takes place all on one road and well within an easy drive of most of southern Ontario, and with 176 turns there is no shortage of "Good Seats". The organizers, Rally Sport Ontario, and the Orillia Big Brothers encourage all spectators to come out and watch the race.
This rally is the third event in the Ontario Performance Rally Championship and the Two AM Rallysport team goes into it looking to improve their 4th place points standing.
The Ontario Performance Rally Championship, which consists of 5 events run from February to November, is about the most challenging racing series in Ontario. Teams compete in timed runs over narrow twisty closed roads at high speeds.
Two AM Rallysport competes in the Production Sport class with help from its sponsors AM Innovations Inc., Volkswagen Waterloo, Dave's Tire Discounter, and Pennzoil 10 Minute Oil Change Center.
