Nathan Quinn has unveiled a new look for his familiar Coffs Harbour Rally Team Mitsubishi car, before the third round of the CAMS Australian Rally Championship at the National Capital Rally in Canberra this weekend.
Quinn is the 2016 NSW Rally Champion and is now leading the drivers’ pointscore for the 2017 CAMS Australian Rally Championship, which will conclude at Kennards Hire Rally Australia on 16-19 November.
The Coffs Harbour driver is struggling with a severely limited budget to stay in the competition, using secondhand parts for his car and having to hold a fundraiser in Coffs Harbour last week.
Rally Australia has stepped in to support Quinn by contributing to his costs for Canberra and giving his well-worn car a fresh look with Kennards Hire Rally Australia livery. This will help promote Rally Australia to the national and international rally community assembling in Canberra this weekend for the CAMS Australian Rally Championship and the FIA Asia Pacific Rally Championship.
Quinn distinguished himself as one of Australia’s fastest young drivers when he finished eighth outright in the 2013 Rally Australia at the wheel of an Italian-run Mini WRC car. His aim is to compete at WRC level again this year.
