DustTrails, Episode 6: Chris Atkinson – the early years in the WRC

Chris Atkinson is the only Australian to get a full time drive in the World Rally Championship, and in this episode, we chat about his early times in sport’s top flight.

Atkinson’s impressive ARC performances helped him raise his profile.

In his debut season, Chris scored a podium in Japan.

2006 brought plenty of trouble for his Subaru team.
