Quinn secures car for Rally South Canterbury
- 20th June 2018, 9:55am
It will be the third successive event Quinn has competed in on these shores, and the third-straight rally he will pedal a different car. At Rally Whangarei Quinn was behind the wheel of Neil Allport’s Ford Fiesta R5, while he jumped into Richie Dalton’s Fiesta Proto at the most recent round in the forests north of Canterbury. Dalton has recovered from injury enough to take his place this weekend, so Quinn looked like he would be left without a car until this opportunity came up. The Mitsubishi gave WRC star Paddon his first ever win, while Holder also claimed his first NZRC victory in it before going on to win the 2016 championship. The Mitsubishi is now owned by Dunedin's Mike Wellington, who was the main sponsor of April's Otago Rally through his Dunedin Isuzu business.
😳😳Have been thrown a lifeline by Mike Wellington and his team to keep us in the NZRC!! The potential sponsorships haven’t yet come to fruition so we hope that we can bank enough points... https://t.co/xvxZhp2kGp— Nathan Quinn (@NathanQuinn22) June 19, 2018
