After their first year in Rally America where they finished 4th in overall 2WD and won the 2012 B-Spec Championship – the first all-female team to win any championship in Rally America’s history, Verena Mei and Leanne Junnila return to Sno*Drift today in Atlanta MI where temperatures will reach a low of – 9 degrees and snow is expected. The competition will be intense with both Ken Block and the 2012 overall champion, David Higgins both running.
"I've never been more excited to race than I am at Sno*Drift this year.” Said Mei, “Now that I have a rally season under my belt, have been working with Leanne for a year now, and more confidence behind the wheel, this race is a completely different race for me than last year."
Verena will be running her 2011 TrueCar Ford Fiesta competing for the 2WD Championship and continues to train with Coach Tim O’Neil at the Team O'Neil Rally School in Dalton, NH. For the 2013 season sponsor tokidoki will be stepping up their involvement with increased exposure on her car with some big surprises to be announced during the season. Tokidoki character “Porcino” continues to ride along to entertain the enormous fan base of tokidoki characters and fashion.
TrueCar/Virgin and Team O’Neil are back this season as major sponsors and continue their strong support of Verena and Leanne. Verena will also be announcing additional sponsors throughout the season so stay up to date at:
