Dalton’s new Fiesta Proto arrives in Australia
New South Wales based Irishman, Richie Dalton, has taken delivery of his new Ford Fiesta Proto, that he will drive in the 2017 New Zealand Rally Championship.
Dalton posted photos of the car on his Facebook page, stating: “I finally picked up the new car this morning from the port. It’s been a long time since the order in May 2015.”
The Fiesta will run with Mitsubishi Lancer Evo 9 running gear, with Dalton and co-driver John Allen.
As reported in RallySport Magazine in July, Dalton had hoped to run the car in the Australian Rally Championship next year, but regulation changes mean that he has been forced to head overseas for the NZRC.
