Tech House & Speed this week reaches out to 11-time American Rally Champion John Buffum as Rally Great Britain approaches the horizon next week. Going to the rally this year is two-time U.S. 2WD champion Chris Duplessis. He’ll take part in the WRC Academy with a Ford R2 Fiesta from M-Sport in the UK.

Buffum competed in the event several times and has special insight into what Duplessis could expect, what he could experience and what he needs to bring back home in preparation for the 2012 Rally America season. Duplessis will be in a new R2 Fiesta for the 2012 season here in the U.S.

In addition, Buffum has some frank and dramatic conversation about his experiences as a co-driver with his Libre Racing driver, Canadian and North American Rally Champion Antoine L’Estage. The two ran at Rally Charlevoix in Canada winning the event by one second with a triple digit charge through the last stage of the day-long event.
