Less than a month after taking a superb fifth overall on the 2009 Roger Albert Clark Rally, Rob Smith and Shaun O'Gorman are already hatching plans to contest the 2010 event in their Vauxhall Chevette.
Smith and O'Gorman were among the stars of the '09 rally, giving the Chevette its best result to date and running up among the leading Ford Escorts. Their target for 2010 is to challenge for an overall top three finish and Smith says that competing on the Roger Albert is an amazing experience.
"People were so good on the rally; we had a lot of moral support and the spectators were so animated," he said. "They were jumping up and down and waving at us in the stages.
“We'll definitely do the RAC again in 2010 and a top three finish is possible with the Chevette."
Before the rally, their first aim was to finish and a place in the top ten was a dream: "We're chuffed to bits with the result," Smith added. "The Chevette really proved itself."
