Bruce Fullerton and Paul Batten are currently the joint leaders of the ARC Rally Challenge, with a total of 200 points, 22 points ahead of equal third place. After Batten’s heavy accident in the Great Lakes Rally, it would have been easy for Fullerton to take the title unchallenged, however, in an act of generosity, Fullerton has offered Paul the use of his spare Evo 6 Lancer. The deal – no lease fee and a simple damage clause, will allow Batten to compete in the NGK Rally of Melbourne early in November, and challenge for the title.

The Evo 6 that Fullerton has offered Batten was purchased as a spare car earlier this year. It was originally used by Katsu Taguchi as a Group N-prepared recce car prior to running in the NSW state championship where it achieved several top 5 results.

Fullerton believes that both he and Batten could challenge for first and second outright in the Rally Challenge component of the event, and it would be a huge buzz for both cars to be displaying the Fullerton Financial Services livery. Fullerton’s ‘Full-On Rallysport’ team is run with just four people, the driver, co-driver and two service mechanics.
