Duffy wants Mull win af­ter Fabia de­but

Motor Sport News - - Rally News -

Calum Duffy is tar­get­ing a win on the Mull Rally af­ter a pos­i­tive de­but in his DEN Mo­tor­sport-built Skoda Fabia S2500.

The S2000 car has a 2.5-litre Milling­ton en­gine, and Duffy man­aged 11th place on last week’s Clare Stages. The only is­sue was steer­ing trou­ble on the car’s first com­pet­i­tive run.

“I’m very happy with that, the only prob­lem was the power steer­ing,” said Duffy. “The pump is elec­tric and isn’t up to the power of the diffs. We can make it hy­draulic so there’s op­tions.

“We were driv­ing with no power steer­ing for most of the stages, I’m glad I work a chain­saw for a liv­ing as I wouldn’t have had a chance oth­er­wise. We’re go­ing to get a pad­dleshift on it too. It gave you a lot of con­fi­dence straight out of the box. There’s so much more to come from the car.”
