Driver: Ty Turnbull
..."I'm from Los Angeles. For as long as I can remember rally is something that I've been very passionate about. I'm a big Colin McRae fan and I grew up playing his video games. I started driving off-road trucks and riding motorbikes when I was very young. As soon as I got my driver's license I went to a rally driving school and began competing in RallyX events. Two years ago I was able to save up enought money working as an EMT on an emergency ambulance to begin competing in proper stage rally events. I own a Group 2 Ford Focus and I do very nearly all the work on it myself in my home garage."....
...."I won my class in the first rally I finished and have had a podium result in every event that I've finished. My main goal at each event that I enter is to improve my driving technique and to be a faster driver than I was at the last event. By continually racing against myself it has made me one of the fastest drivers in my class and I'm always improving. I don't have any illusions of being the next Sebastian Loeb but I do intend to apply myself with 100% effort to rallying and take it as far as I can go. If I do the best that I can, and don't become a champion, I won't be disappointed. But I don't think that will happen.".....
