DirtFish’s mega global weekend

With a trio events in three different continents, it was a packed but successful weekend for DirtFish


DirtFish successfully completed a mammoth weekend covering and hosting three major events in three different continents.

George Donaldson was on the ground for the latest round of the World Rally Championship, Safari Rally Kenya, with assistance from Colin Clark who was there in the build-up to the event.

Clark then flew back to England for the Goodwood Festival of Speed where he was joined by David Evans to front DirtFish’s video coverage of the Safari. Fans at the famous event were treated to some live interviews too on the DirtFish stage too.

But back home in Snoqualmie, DirtFish hosted its annual SummerFest, packed with its usual mix of awesome rally cars, a typical array of amazing produce from local sellers and, most of all, fantastic families and fans having a whole heap of fun.


Thrill rides were provided both on the ground, through the beautiful DirtFish property, and in the air from the super-cool helicopter tours.

In total more than 2000 people visited with 35 volunteers helping out and 50 show cars were on display, including several currently competing in the 2022 American Rally Association presented by DirtFish season.

DirtFish owner Steve Rimmer said: “A huge congratulations and thank you to every member of the DirtFish team this week.


“The effort which has gone into pulling these three events together is enormous. As well as team DirtFish, I have to say thank you to Ian Gwynne and his amazing squad at BGMSport for preparing and running our cars at Goodwood brilliantly.

“As you can imagine myself, James and Josie were all bitterly disappointed not to be home for SummerFest, we had already committed to the trip to Europe.

“Two things are for sure, we won’t miss another SummerFest and Sami [DirtFish operations director] and the team did a magnificent job on Saturday. Thank you.”
