The third episode of the Special Stage Podcast is now live, and we get a unique insight into the M-Sport Ford World Rally Team.
For this episode, we welcome Malcolm Read to chat about his important role with M-Sport in the World Rally Championship.
As an important cog in the chain of M-Sport’s recent success, Read tells what it’s like to work with the likes of Ott Tanak and Malcolm Wilson and what it takes to get the best out of a Rally1 Puma.
Like all episodes, the news of the fortnight is covered off first, with plenty to talk about, including:
- Rally Retro Day
- Targa Tasmania’s postponement
- Alex Rullo’s excitement about the ARC
- Latvia’s 2024 WRC inclusion and Australia and New Zealand’s chances
Then it’s into our Luke Whitten’s chat with Malcolm Read, who talks about his role at M-Sport and just what it’s like travelling the globe with the WRC – many people’s dream job.
He also tells us about his next co-driving gigs in the openers of both the Australian and New Zealand Rally Championships.
