Doga, tell us a little bit about yourself. What’s your story?
So, the RX7 - we want to know all about it.
Why did you pick hill-climbing?
The RX7 looks like the perfect drift car, is that something you would consider pursuing?
It’s funny that you say that, because drifting might be the most popular form of motorsport in Cyprus. We have a few teams competing in the King of Europe championship. I guess the torquey V8 might make it an ideal candidate, yes, and it seems like a lot of fun. But it’s a judged sport, and personally, I’m too competitive for that. I mean, in hill-climbing, the first four cars to finish are all within a second of each other. That means, we’re fighting over tenths of seconds and I love that. When you lose time, you can also tell where you lost it. In drifting, on one run, you might get 80 points and on the second run an 84, without really being able to say why. I couldn’t live with that.
