Podcast: DirtFish’s memories of Mark Wilford

Long distance travelling and plenty of rally talk is on today's agenda. Exactly what the WRC's 'top banana' would have loved


Last week, the world of rallying lost one of its most emblematic media personalities in Mark Wilford, so it is perhaps only fitting that he is remembered in the latest episode of SPIN: The Rally Pod.

Wilf’s passing came as a shock to many across the service park and his loss will be felt for years to come.

George, Lisa and Colin reflect on the man that was Wilf and their memories of the World Rally Championship’s most revered and talented PR.

Wilf loved his rallying, and he would almost certainly have appreciated the escapades of both Colin and Luke Barry in this week’s episode.

Colin jetted all the way to Lebanon to witness Nasser Al-Attiyah and Mathieu Baumel clinch their first victory in the Rally of Lebanon and a staggering 18th Middle East Rally Championship title, while Luke had the pleasure of driving seven hours to find out more about an innovative rally in Wales.
