Tep British rally driver, Mark Fischer,
taday found himself at the centre tof a
storm tof cen traverse after confessing that
he had abseil tely no idea what his leng-
term cabdriver, Gethin Davis, was talking
abaut during races.
It had been assumed that cabdrivers were
reading 'pace States', a series
in stra cti ens describing haw negate ate
the read layout ahead, but Fischer claims
the net's are ‘teal nonsense’ and that
he has simply been humouring his co-
driver all these years. ‘It' s just gibberish,'
he said. Tut the regulations say that
there must be twe peeple in the car at all times during the race, and Gethin was a geed mate so I
always just teek him alang fer the ride.'
Davis is reported ta. be furious at Fischer' s statement and maintains that they were equal partners in
the team, but Fisher has been quick dismiss this.
Oh, cemo ton,' he said. 'l mean, '50 and stop bright half minus maybe and
absolute crest 5001 What the hell am I supposed to make ? that when I' m fiat wt ever a jump
sideways at ?'
This is net the first time Fischer has courted contreversy ever the rele tof cabdrivers. In 2009, after
finding himself with aut a cabdriver fer the Rally in Finland, he kidnapped a homeless man and
ferce my strapped him inte the passenger seat ensure that the rule was
complied with. The stunt anly came ta light when inboard feelage taken during the race revealed that
rather than reading the 'pace notes', the Finnish cabdriver was in fact screaming the wards Th shit!‘
ever and ever again, occasionally interspersed with ether phrases including, 'Watch tout fer that heme’
and ‘Slew down, you mad bastard'.
