Former World Rally Champion, Stig Blomqvist, will drive with the Tuthill Porsche team on this September’s five-day Classic Rally of South Africa.

World Rally Champion of 1984, Stig Blomqvist, will rally a Porsche 911 with Oxfordshire’s Tuthill Porsche team on this September’s five-day Classic Rally of South Africa. A welcome addition to an Escort-dominated entry list for this inaugural South African classic rally, Blomqvists’s challenge comes thirty years after he won the Ivory Coast Rally, en route to the WRC drivers’ championship.
 
Tuthill-Porsche-Stig-1 595“We’re delighted to announce a second 911 partnering John Lloyd’s Tuthill Porsche for this 2,000-kilometre adventure through a truly epic landscape,” said Richard Tuthill, MD of the renowned classic Porsche specialist, who famously ran seventeen Porsche 911s on last year’s Safari Classic Rally: the largest private rally team ever assembled.
 
“A second Tuthill Porsche is exciting enough: driven by a former World Rally champion makes it doubly special. Stig showed great pace on last year’s Safari Classic Rally, finishing second overall for Tuthill Porsche after losing the lead due to a puncture on the very last stage. We’re looking forward to supporting the original Stig – a seven-time Swedish Rally winner - over 800 kilometres of stages through the spectacular Mpumalanga District.
 
“Of course, you don’t have to be a former WRC winner to experience South Africa,” notes Richard Tuthill. “Our cars are built from scratch to please old hands and new boys alike. A virtual novice recently finished fourth overall on the Sydney-London Marathon Rally in a Tuthill 911, such is the confidence inspired by our cars.”
