CrazyLeo Blames Faulty Note for NEFR Crash

CrazyLeo Urlichich attributes his crash at last weekend's New England Forest Rally to a bad pacenote.

Urlichich and co-driver Carl Williamson's 2007 Subaru Impreza 'Beast' STI went off the road and into a swamp on day two's opening stage forcing the crew to retire from the event while sitting comfortably in third overall.

CrazyLeo explained, “I made an unfortunate mistake in the recce and the note for the corner where we went off was way wrong. Too bad, but I don’t have any hard feelings because we already put in 110% work into everything we do. There’s nothing we could have done differently to prevent it. While it’s the same for everybody, proper two-pass recce is something the [American] championship needs.”

The Russian ex-pat's mistake in Maine cost him his chance to fight NEFR winner Antoine L'Estage for second place in the championship standings. L'Estage will mathematically secure that position upon taking the start of the Olympus Rally in September.

CrazyLeo will now contend for third place in the championship with Super Production class leader Lauchlin O'Sullivan, who closely trails Urlichich by five points with only one round in the Series remaining.
