Bad start for Queenslanders
- 9th October 2006, 3:41pm
The pair rolled their rented Ford Escort RS2000 on the first day of the rally, doing considerable damage to the car.
A long-time competitor in Escorts and Mazdas, Poole has leased the car driven by RallySport Magazine editor, Peter Whitten, in this year’s Otago Classic Rally.
Upgraded with a five-speed gearbox, a 5-link rear end and more power since the Otago event, the Escort was expected to perform well, but the Queensland duo’s escapades on Day 1 soon put paid to that.
However, they have restarted the event in Leg 2, but in another Escort.
