Car #75, Keith Martin/Dean Koehler, is driven by Keith Martin, who some might recognize as one of the enduring hosts expert on the television program “What My Car Worth?” and as the publisher of “Sports Car Market”. “Sports Car Market” is a very interesting and valuable source of information about the collector car market. Perhaps Keith will have an in-depth story about competing in the 1000 Millas Sport rally in the “Sports Car Market”.
In summary the 1000 Millas Sport rally is a very interesting rally and is a very important rally in South American motorsport.
