This week’s Motorsport Ireland – RIAC classic video from the RPM Motorsport collection is highlights from the 2002 Manx International Rally.
Three British Rally Championship titles probably belied the motorsport talent that was Mark Higgins. The Manx native never got the big break of a full time seat with a works team in the World Championship but on his home event, he was untouchable. Trying to place himself in the shop window of the factory teams, Higgins hired a Toyota Corolla WRC for his home event in 2002. Andrew Nesbitt, who was in the form of his life, could only manage second place to Higgins who finished almost 5 minutes ahead after a devastating performance.
