In the final round of the Western Australian Rally Championship, the result was enough for the 16-year old to clinch second in the championship for two-wheel-drive cars, against a plethora of higher powered cars. “We were really pleased with our drive,” McRae said. “Being a blind event, I was able to focus on driving smoothly, rather than committing to pace notes.” On his way to sixth place, McRae took first 2WD on the final stage of the rally, winning the 11km test by 7.2 seconds. “To get my first stage win on a blind rally is a bit of a relief. It’s great to know that what we lack in horsepower compared to some cars, we can gain in driving and reading the road." The work doesn’t stop now for McRae and co-driver Bill Hayes, who are working on greater plans for the 2021 season. “2020 was always going to be a year for learning and gaining experience, so to come away with second in 2WD is a bonus. “We are working on bringing together some new deals for next year, but we cannot confirm anything as of yet,” McRae added. While speculative about his plans for next year, Max says their plans will be “bigger and better”, with a wider range of events to be competed in.
