World Cup Rally 2001

World Cup Rally 2001 with Lee Broderick After 4 years managing a team on the British Rally Championship it was time for me to make a foray into the world of rally navigation. In typical Paul White style I did not take the easy route and entered the 2001 London – Sahara –London World Cup Rally with Lee Broderick. The event, which revived the long-distance World Cup Rallies of the 1970s, had a 70-strong line-up, with entries from as far as New Zealand and America, there were no less than eight entries receiving support from Manufacturers.

The 20-day rally had 82 time-controls, and 28 competitive test-sections, with more than 6,000 miles of varied terrain placing a premium on reliability. The 10-days in Morocco formed the heart of the rally, but the drive up through Portugal, using some of the classic stages of the old TAP Portuguese Rally, provided a sting in the tail and as expected provided a major final influence on the leader board. The rally was the stepping stone for things to come and gave me a clear understanding that whatever happens don’t give up. Twenty days in the company of one person in an endurance event will build friendships and test your personal skills to the limit. In Lee Broderick I have a friend for life with whom I shared an amazing experience.
