Thanks to all wrc.com readers who entered our competitions in November. Once again we were deluged with entries from right around the world.
If you weren’t lucky this time then don’t panic. We are going to increase the number of competitions on the site as we go forward and have big plans for 2009.
For now, we congratulate Guy Dekelver from Belgium, Petra Witowski from London and Marko Kovac from Croatia who each won the 2009 McKlein Rally Calendar for knowing that next year’s season kicks off with Rally Ireland.
Another of this month’s winners is Martin Lawford from the UK who took the wheel of a four-wheel drive rally car as part of our Airwaves Pro competition.
Martin won the chance to go to Silverstone and receive instruction on rally driving techniques such as hand-brake turns, power slides and Scandinavian flicks, before doing timed laps of a rally stage at the legendary circuit. At the end Pete topped things off by receiving an exclusive co-drive experience in a Mitsubishi Evolution to really see how the professionals do it.
Martin said: “It was an amazing experience receiving the co-drive, it was the most exciting thing I’ve ever done! The whole day was superb and being a huge rally fan it was certainly a once in a lifetime opportunity.”
