MML Sports found itself slightly out of its depth last weekend, as the company ran a Mitsubishi Lancer WRCar against a Formula 2 powerboat for Latvian TV.
The event was to promote Rally Kurzeme, the sixth round of the 2010 Latvian Rally Championship and was filmed by national TV program ‘Your Car’ to be shown in May.
The Lancer WRCar was driven by Ivars Vasaraudzis, one of two regular drivers in the Latvian series in MML Sports-run Lancers and favourite for this weekend’s Talsi Rally.
At the wheel of the powerboat was regular pilot Uvis Slakteris, as the pair went head-to-head in both a drag race and round a course set up on land and water respectively.
The event was filmed by Your Car for airing later in May in Latvia. However, the program will also produce a video that will be available to watch on youtube while pan-European motorsport channel Motors TV will also be showing the challenge.
The video will also be available on the MML Sports website when the outcome of land Vs water will be decided.
