2012 Sandblast Rally Results

The past weekend the 2012 NASA rally season got underway with the Sandblast Rally in Cheraw, South Carolina.  This rally is well named as it seems that every road is in sand.

This rally included motorcycle classes as well as cars, however this summary is limited to the cars only.

The rally was won by Michael Reilly/Joshua Benthien is a Ford Cosworth!  Had I realized that this car was going to run down at the 2012 Sandblast Rally, I might have found a way to go down to see it.

The following pictures of the Ford Cosworth were posted by N. Rotary Tech on the following website:

The Winning Ford Cosworth 

I suspect that this is a very special Ford Cosworth, but I can’t say for sure.  But having won the 2012 Sandblast Rally, we know that it is a fast car.

 Ford Cosworths Are Not Very Common in the USA 

The overall results of the 2012 Sandblast Rally are presented below:
