Central Europe Rally: Jonah Street bring it home in the top 10

After 7 days competing against the best cross-country rally racers in the world, the US-American Jonah Street has emerged in 9th position overall. In this tight and technical rally, the team is very happy with this result. Jonah finished special test sections three times on the podium, and often in the top 5. Still relatively new to this type of competition, the team gauges its progress against more established teams. Rally PanAm knows that Jonah can compete alongside, and often ahead of, the best in the world.

Jonah Street, "This was a very good test for us, with some good stages. In my first race on the 690, I think I handled it well. This was not the type of event where we would normally take a big rally bike. Hopefully we will get a chance to show what we can do in a real desert rally soon."

Rally PanAmĀ“s goal is to win the Dakar Rally. Crew Chief Des McDonald, "We fine tuned our skills at this rally, certainly a very valuable experience." Team Manager Charlie Rauseo, ?We are exactly where we need to be. Each time we compete at this level, we learn and get better at it. Jonah and the crew are significantly closer to winning one of these events. With a little more help from sponsors, we hope to compete in the Sertoes Rally in Brazil, and possibly other major events, before going for the win in the Dakar next January."
