Sandy Fairbairn, is our youngest driver, he is just 16 and a fantastic Rugby player, he has only done 4 rallies in the Junior series, but we know he has talent and his fast times prove it already. He comes from great Rallying stock, his father Warren Fairbairn is one of the fastest drivers we at Ice drive have ever sat with, Big Warren has won the BMW Rally series twice and even won rallies outright against much more powerful cars, so we know young Sandy will be fast too, keep an eye on this name in the future.
