After the ECB Australian Rally Championship round at Scouts Rally SA, we were able to catch up with Jack Monkhouse, one of the most spectacular drivers in the field.
Monkhouse, who drives alongside John Allen is contesting the Championship in a rear wheel drive Nissan Silvia S15 has punched above his weight, taking stage wins and heat podiums results. The rear wheel drive element of his car allows for the spectacular style with his sideways cornering becoming his hallmark trait – well that and his massive air over jumps.
Monkhouse hasn’t always been a rally driver, having competed full time in the Australian Drift Series a few years ago. He was also part of the Toyota Hilux stunt team for a period. For now he is back to rallying. Like any motorsport, it isn’t cheap and he is always looking out for additional support. If you would like to help out, head over to his Facebook page.
In this interview, we talk about his ARC campaign, rallying a Nissan Silvia, if rallying should look to a rear wheel drive formula and his future plans.
