Rally / Antoine L'estage
Antoine L'Estage, was born into the world of rally. As a young boy, he and his siblings would watch their father compete as a driver. Now, many years later, Antoine has over a decade of rally experience and is the leader of the L'Estage rally family.
In 2010, Antoine ended Travis Pastrana’s four-year reign of the Rally America championship. He later claimed the North American and the Canadian Rally Championships and secured the Triple Crown for 2010 by winning all three titles in the same year. The Triple Crown has only been won once before in the entire history of rallying in North America (in 2004). In addition, while the coveted Triple Crown has been won before, Antoine’s X Games bronze medal in same year makes his 2010 season even more remarkable!
The 2012 rally season saw an exact repeat performance of the 2011 success, adding two more overall titles to his resumé. Antoine has an impressive total of 37 national victories from both sides of the border.
Antoine’s regular co-driver since September 2006 has been Nathalie Richard and together they have become a dominant force in North American rallying.
