WRC drivers to sign autographs in Sydney on father’s day

World Rally Championship drivers Sebastien Loeb, Petter Solberg, Henning Solberg, Mikko Hirvonen, Jari-Matti Latvala, Sebastien Ogier, and Matthew Wilson will appear in Pitt Street Mall, Sydney, four days before the Australian leg of the 2011 FIA World Rally Championship held on the Coffs Coast in NSW (see below for driver profiles).

The world’s best rally drivers make the stop for a one-off public appearance to sign autographs and mingle with fans – a rare treat for rally die-hards.

Given this will be held on father’s day, petrol head dads couldn’t be treated to a better lunch pit stop.

If you’re keen, head to the Market Street end of Pit Street Mall in Sydney on Sunday September 4, between 11:50am – 12:30pm.
