Chris Greenhouse makes it 2-for-2 at Rallye Défi '16 with another win


photo by David Bélanger

Montpellier, Québec, Canada: Driver Chris Greenhouse and codriver Brian Johnson were back on top at Rallye Défi 2016 at the third round of the Canadian Rally Championship. The team led the 2WD class from start to finish and ended the rally in 4th overall. For Chris Greenhouse, this was his highest overall finish ever at a National-level rally in North America, which is remarkable given that he competes in a two-wheel-drive car against a field full of turbocharged all-wheel-drive cars.

"There was a lot of attrition at the front of the field this year," said Chris after the event. "A number of cars either went off or had mechanical problems, and this did a lot to improve our overall standing. Our goal here was to make up for a poor performance at Rallye Baie-des-Chaleurs and to win the 2WD class, which we did. To finish as high as we did in the overall rankings was a wonderful bonus for our team."

The Cincinnati-based team joined forces with Platto Motorsports of Saint-Lambert-de-Lauzon, Quebec who provided service and logistic support during the event. "We were especially happy with the performance of Platto Motorsports during the services. They were able to locate, diagnose and repair a number of problems during the event that could have been quite serious if unrepaired. This was a true team effort and I give many thanks to David Morrissette of Platto Motorsports. We look forward to working with his team in the future."

The team is now looking ahead to Rallye de Charlevoix in October, where they scored a very impressive 2WD win in 2015, which was punctuated last year with a 3rd-place overall finish.

Camo paint job (or a fading eye-brain connection) leaves me wondering what Mopar body is being shown in the action shot. Stratus???

Which motor lies under the hood?

Looks like a Gen2 Neon to me.
yep, its a 2G Neon/SRT4



The camo paint job threw me off.
We did the digicamo wrap a while back. We decided that we would make it stand out instead of blend in, so we used the bright green color. And that plays off my last name, too. Funny thing is that although the car stands out, the digicamo actually helps to mask the occasional body damage that we sustain from rocks, trees and other hard objects.
