Recap: M-Sport Tour

A group of ten Trackside members and guests visited M-Sport last month (31 January), touring the Cumbrian team's headquarters and build hall, before rallying's famous moments with a guided tour of the team's museum.

Led by tour guide Roger, the team got up close with memorabilia worn by rallying greats such as Colin McRae, Mikko Hirvonen, and Toni Gardemeister. Plus saw first-hand the bonnet of Ott Tanak's Fiesta WRC that met a watery end on Rally Mexico 2015 and became known within the sport as 'TiTanak'.

Trackside member Samantha attended the tour with her husband: "My husband and I had a great time, as rally fans it was amazing to have a glimpse behind the scenes of what it takes to run a rally team. Opportunities like this gives us the fans, the chance to connect with the people we support - something that isn't usually available to us but I gather from your representative Ben, is the ethos of the membership. I'm so glad I joined membership scheme, and look forward to many more events in the future!"
