In this episode we talked with Alex and Rhianon Gelsomino about how they’ve been coping during the Coronavirus lock-down, training in the middle of a recent earthquake, and the creation of new online courses that have been a lot more successful than even they initially estimated. They also give our listeners some training tips that could be hugely valuable at sharpening your skills while you’re cooped up at home.
As is typical with our Rally Pub style chats, we delve into many additional subjects including Alex’s joy of Irish tarmac rallying and Rhianon’s experience testing with Subaru Motorsports USA’s Brandon Semenuk. Mike Shaw Rally talks about being conflicted about the FIA’s new scaled regulations that may draw in more manufacturers, but at what cost to the core value of “real cars on real roads.” Ian Holmes – Rally Co-Driver reflects on his hero Sir Stirling Moss, and gets elated at the news that Hayden Paddon’s electric rally car is on track to debut by the end of the 2020 New Zealand rally season.
