Founded in late 1999, Rocket Rally Racing was originally focused around managing the driving career of Patrick Richard. After successfully competing notionally, then internationally, then at the World Championship level, Rocket Rally has now expanded its core business to offer products and services to other rally drivers and teams.
Rocket Rally Racing is the only rally-specific preparation and parts shop in Western Canada. “We had a lot of folks asking us to help them with technical and/or marketing activities, and officially opening up our doors was a natural extension of where we were,” explained Richard. “We already had the equipment and know how. Our international experience and our winning trach record is what our whole business is based upon. So it was just a matter of getting the word out there that we were willing to work on customer cars. Plus we have a network of specialists that we can tap into that no one in the North American market really has access to.
Rocket Rally Racing and Team Subaru Canada have had a break out year with multiple drivers taking Championship titles in multiple classes. Most notably Antoine L’Estage beating Travis Pastrana of Subaru Rally Team USA at Tall Pines to take the lead in the Canadian Championship and then finishing the last race of the season in dominate fashion. Securing the title of 2016 Driver and Co-Driver Champions the Subaru Rally Team Canada looks to continue their hot streak as they prepare for the 2017 racing season.
