Richie Dalton has taken out the North Shore Sporting Car Club’s Volksmuller Rallysprint, driving his Ford Fiesta Proto.

Just a week after the National Capital Rally, the Sydney Dragway based event attracted an impressive field of over 50 competitors.

Dalton was co-driven by his wife, Louise, who was sitting in a rally car for the first time and did an admirable job.
