Hintz Bros  Rally Championships

The Hintz Bros have won numerous regional championships in different rally series’ and some national championships for regional entrants. By far the Hintz Bros biggest championship is the 2002 National ProRally Championship for Group 5, the Open two-wheel drive class. That year we competed in the National series, racing in California, Minnesota, Oregon, Pennsylvania, and clinching the championship one event early in the home state of the team headquarters, Washington. We campaigned the Mazda RX-7 turbo throughout the series, only getting beaten twice all year - winning our class in all but two weekends (National and Regional) contested that year, and finishing second in the two losses.

We had great competition and thrilling battles at each event that year from former National Champions and other speedsters including Doug Shepherd, Bob Olsen in his Porsche 911, Henry Krolikowski, Tad Ohtake, and Al Kaumeheiwa. Since then the Hintz Bros have returned to regional racing, although still traveling to great events that are contested on great roads.
