Rally car series crowns a champion

HOUGHTON — The Rally Car Racing season is over and the winners were crowned this past weekend with the finish of the Lake Superior Performance Rally.

David Higgins was named your 2014 LSPR champion after finishing a grueling course which featured dreadful and muddy conditions. Local driver Adam Yeoman from Hancock talked about how the weekend rain effected the drivers.

“So the Friday stages near Kenton…the grip is very inconsistent in the wet. Some places are clay–based so it’s very slippery. And some places there’s good gravel where there’s a ton of grip. So it’s hard to judge, corner to corner, what you can attack,” Yeoman said.
