Mitsubishi Evolution IX at Malcolm Wilson Rally

When I think of car rallies there are two cars I think of, one being the Subaru Impreza and the second being this car picture above. The Mitsubishi Evo is a fantastic rally car and this one sounded amazing. The noise from the engine really went through me as I stood under some trees in the middle of Whinlatter Forest as the car power-slid around the corner just a few feet away from me. This particular Evo IX was driven by Thomas Naughton with Horace Saville as the co-driver. After doing a little research on the British Trial Drivers Association website, the reason this photo is so sharp is probably because the car was being driven slowly around the corner. The car retired from the rally soon after this photograph was captured because of a broken differential.
