M-sport’s Millener returns to driving
M-sport’s client liaison manager Rich Millener made a return to the drivers seat in a last-minute deal to do the Malcolm Wilson Rally last weekend.
“It’s Adam Taylor’s car: his dad drove on the North West Stages and Lucy Block has also driven it,” explained Millener. “I’ve scared myself and Gilbey [co-driver and M-sport co-worker Michael Gilbey] in a few places but it’s been OK. He went for the side of his seat at one point! We had a place in the notes, it was a ‘two left into a square right be neat’. We were backwards into it.
“We’ve been using the brakes too much, they’re a purple colour. We’re having fun though.”
Millener wasn’t the only high ranking member of the team in action on the rally, with business development manager Andrew Wheatley servicing the R2 car.
