    5 Tips from a Pro Rally Driver to Help Your Everyday Driving


    Antoine L’Estage knows how to drive.

    He has won the Canadian Rally Championship eight times, including the past six years in a row. He has also won the North American Rally Cup several times and is a previous Rally America champion.

    In case his rally dominance wasn’t already enough, for the 2105 season, L’Estage joined Subaru Canada as the factory driver for the Rocket Rally Racing WRX STI Rally car. Having already secured yet another driver and manufacturer championship, I was invited up to Bancroft, Ontario, by Subaru Canada to witness the final stop on the Canadian Rally Championship, the 2015 Rally of the Tall Pines.

    Before the event began, I had some time to sit down with L’Estage and discuss what makes him such a dominant rally driver. Are the skills needed to be the best at bombing through forest roads much the same as those needed in everyday driving? His answer is yes. What makes for a good driver is the same regardless of the situation. He pointed out five skills he hones for rallying events that everyone should be utilizing on the road to make themselves better drivers in general.

    I agree with all of them. In regards to the last one, it's sometimes simply matching tires to the conditions of the road. I hear out here in CO they are going to start heavily charging people who cause accidents because their tires were not equipped to the season.

    You know, I'm totally cool with that. I know a few people who run inappropriate tires up and down i70 to ski in their RWD vehicles. Drives me nuts -- I refuse to get in the car with them.

    BTW, I saw another 2015/16 rex today at the Ace in longmont I was going to get hose clamps to adjust my new nameless axelback!
