Competitors with modern rally cars have been afforded a rare opportunity to compete in a long distance rally with the organisers of the 2016 Classic Outback Trial expanding the six-day event to include modern two and four-wheel drive rally cars.
Let’s meet Chris McCormack – a first time COT entrant, an Alice Springs local and President of the local rally club. He’s going to enter Classic Outback Modern, in what sounds like a very effective Magna…
What car will you be running in the 2016 COT? What is special; what is its history; where is it at?
I will be in Group 7, Modern Club Car – I have 1997 Mitsubishi TF Magna FWD, running a standard 2007 Mitsubishi 380 Engine with a factory Ralliart LSD in a factory 5 speed gearbox. I have built the car myself from a repairable write off I bought about 4 years ago. It’s made up of mostly standard mitsi parts (it helps to own a wrecking yard) and some custom bits.
