RAC Rally of the Tests 2019 – Event Preview

 

28 Oct 2019

It could be the year of the Mini, the marque celebrating it’s 60th Anniversary. 1964 Monte Carlo Rally winner Paddy Hopkirk is entrusting his 1990 ERA Pirelli Marathon winning Mini Cooper S, registration 6 EMO, to Steve Entwistle who was third on RoTT last year and second before that. Navigating the car is Mark Appleton, recent Adriatic Adventure Clerk of the Course and Rally of the Tests winner with Paul Wignall in his Alfa Romeo last year. This is another strong combination although Paddy was quick to pile pressure on his team; “They’d better win it! Alec Poole and I won the ERA Pirelli Marathon in 1990 in that Mini, it’s a winning car, but honestly, Steve can win anything. He’s been knocking on the door for a few years now, a second then a third, it’s a well prepared car and they are a good team, Mark won last year so we are hoping for a win, however, I’ve told them not to bend it."
