We were able to catch up with our mate at MRT Performance – Brett Middleton on his rally championship success in 2012.  Together with codriver Andrew Benefield, they have taken the East Coast Bullbars SUV Rally Challenge – a class in the Bosch Australian Rally Championship.  They have managed to take the Class Championship – being held for the first time – with two round remaining.

They have won the class at each of the four rounds so far this year – sealing the title at the recent Scouts Rally SA.  We’d like to take this opportunity to congratulate everyone MRT Performance and would like to thank them for their support during the year.

Here , we talk about the 2012 Championship, the remainder of the season, the speed that they have gotten out of the Subaru Forester, what will happen in 2013 and the ECB SUV Rally Challenge into the future.
