Lancer lovers show their support for the A73

Paul Kennedy Lancer LA.
Paul Kennedy and Ken Behrend won the 1986 NSW Clubman Series in this Lancer.

Our recent story on the ‘forgotten’ Mitsubishi Lancer A73 has generated plenty of interest from fans of the little Japanese car.

The Lancer is not often seen in competition these days, with Datsuns of all models, Escorts, Toyotas, Commodores and other cars making up the bulk of classic rally entry lists.

However, from the response to our story, there’s still plenty of love for the car.
