In our continuing Coats Hire Rally Australia coverage we talk to Adrian Coppin – who rallies a Ford Fiesta R2.  Coppin rallies predominately in Australia and was competing in the WRC2 section of the WRC round.  He put in very competitive times taking 16th overall and beating some of the regular WRC2 runners home.  His times would have been good enough for a top six in the ultra competitive  ARC class.

This followed a strong run in the International Rally of Queensland where he competed against the best from the Asia Pacific.

He also announced his exciting 2014 plans, leading a 2 car effort in the Australian Rally Championship with Citroen Australia – to rally a Citroen DS3.  This will see him go up against the Mazdas, Renaults and hopefully Hondas even if they are in private hands (after Honda announced their withdrawal from the Championship…).

He is now off to Croatia to rally a DS3 – to help him get used to the Citroen.

In this interview, we talk about Rally Australia, rallying the Ford, his future with Citroen and looking to Croatia and the ARC finale – Rally Victoria.
