When we say that rallying is at the centre of our DNA here at Tuthill Porsche, we really mean it.
Both Richard and his father, Francis Tuthill, will be taking on the rally scene this year. In differing degrees and at different levels sure, but the passion remains the same.
Richard will be tackling the British Historic Rally Championship, which begins with testing next month at Walter’s Arena in Wales. Rally North Wales will be his first professional outing in nine years, since he competed at the WRC Germany, in the Porsche R-GT, and won.
A few other clients are also throwing their hat in the ring for the BRC too, with many of them having competed in the East African Safari Classic Rally last year.
Francis on the other hand, will be joining Dr. Beatty Crawford and co for the DeJa Vu Monte Carlo Rally at the end of May.
Déjà vu Monte Carlo, will drive over famous special stages such as St. Bonnet le Froid, Le Burzet, Sisteron, and the most famous stage in the world, the Col de Turini.
It will be a leisurely run with no timing and no pressure. Using simple navigation from a combination of SATNAV and tulip diagrams.
Francis is now busy rebuilding his Porsche 356a, which he will be driving this rally in, and lucky for us it keeps him out of trouble (just about), and if you fancy joining him that are welcoming additional participants!
Whether your rallying involves weekend events, competitive touring or trans-continental events, your passion is our passion.
