DirtFish's Colin Clark, David Evans, Lisa O'Sullivan and George Donaldson discuss the current happenings in the world of rallying and provide their insights and thoughts.
For thousands of rally fans out there Mitsubishi Ralliart was the 1990s in the World Rally Championship. And Derek Dauncey was the man in the middle of that Rugby-based Mitsubishi outfit.
In what’s going to be the first of many interviews (hence this is Part 1 of Now that’s what Derek calls the 1990s…), Dauncey talks DirtFish through two pivotal events for Andrew Cowan’s Lancer squad. We’re in 1996 for both, the first is the Safari Rally - an outstanding tale of Ralliart’s first attempt at the Kenyan marathon - and the second is one of the Asia Pacific Rally Championship’s most arduous journeys from Hong Kong to Beijing.
