John & Mark Huebbe's Beetle
John & Mark Huebbe took their Beetle down to Mexico for the Rally America event in March that was running concurrently with the World Rally Championship event. And it was a good decision to do so - they won the 2WD class and came second overall in the Rally America class.
They have added a write-up on their website here
