Martin: Why I dedicated Turkey win to ‘Beef’

September’s Rally Turkey victory for Elfyn Evans and Scott Martin was charged with emotion for the experienced British co-driver. After a second win of 2020, which carried the Toyota Gazoo Racing pair back to the head of the FIA World Rally Championship, Martin dedicated the success to his mentor and former WRC co-driver, Michael ‘Beef’ Park. Park was influential in developing a young Martin’s career when both were at M-Sport almost 20 years ago. Park died in an accident at Wales Rally GB in 2005 and Martin’s second WRC event win in Turkey came just two days after the 15th anniversary of that tragic incident.
