Working with Evo's every day could never be just a job but since selling my RS450 I have been trying to decide how to enjoy motoring again.

Without starting another aggro thread, I have to say that trackdays are not my cup of tea and using the Extreme S every now and then is fun but I do need my licence!

So the answer is that I now have a VI RS that I am planning to use on some proper rallies next season. I have suffered this madness before, but it is 8 or so years since I drove a rally car competitively so the deal is first and foremost to enjoy. The car is halfway built and will be Clubman Group A - which means quick but no trick components. Paying for this is funded by me so no 6-speed X-trac gearboxes!

With all the aggro on the board recently, I still think that MLR and its members are mostly here for their interest in Evo's and its rally heritage. I am looking for a navigator and service crew so I thought I'd post this in case anyone wants to be involved. Some of the boys at Ralliart UK are of course helping and I've press ganged a few of our suppliers to help!

In addition I'll post what we do to the car if anyone is interested.

Would love to be involved apart from one small problem, I haven't got the first frickin' idea about being in a service team or being a navigator!!! :) In fact, service team wise I haven't got any idea about mechanics and engineering at all! Shame, would have been good to be part of something like that!

However Mark, I would like to wish you well with your rallying efforts and if you could post when you're going to be driving I'd like to come along and watch! Any chance of a web site perhaps where you can post dates, results, progress of car build etc etc? (As if you hadn't got enough to do!! :))

Dave

PS - May be in at Ralliart a little later so will say Hello!

If yellow 5 doesn't fancy it I'd have a go at the navigating. I did it about 4 years ago for my brother (before he stuffed it into a wall in wales at 2:00am) - Wasn't my instructions ! I told him it was muddy and to ease off :D
Trouble was it was road rally's not stage. Ah well, at least you know I've a strong stomache, even if I'd have to learn how to do pace notes. LOL
