Canadian Rally Driver Searching for the Podium
The team is back with the help of many amazing sponsors and partners. Many of them have been with the Canadian Rally driver since 2005 when Mark started rally driving. Together, they are back at it again.
Canadian rally driver, Mark Jennings-Bates will be competing in the 2018 season in Western Canada. This time with a brand new co-driver, his wife, Jackie Jennings-Bates.
Jackie recently attended a training course with the former Canadian National Co-Driving champion Nathalie Richard. “I think I am as ready as I can be” said Jackie. “I am certainly used to Mark’s driving and have done a few test days with notes. What I really needed to get to grips with was the timing and math as well as other co-driver duties”.
As for the rally driver, Mark said he is a few years older but maintains his fitness level. He is actively involved with the Canadian military and his local Search and Rescue organisation as well as programmed fitness training.
