Terry and Donna Trewern are the LOCAL couple from Bairnsdale, Victoria who rally a 1973 Toyota TE27 Levin.
Terry has been rallying his Corolla since 1993, competing in the Victorian Rally championship with several class wins. Terry is a communications technician, owner and operator EG Communications & Antenna.
Donna has been Terry’s co-driver since 2011, competing in many rallies, including 2 Alpine rally finishes. Donna is an accountant, and owner of local bookkeeping practice EG BAS Agents Plus.
Donna’s brother Shane will be servicing. Shane is responsible for how good the car body looks, proving that being in a wheelchair doesn’t hold him back.
The Corolla is a replica of the car Hannu Mikkola won Toyota’s first World Rally in, the 1975 1000 Lakes Rally in Finland.
The crew’s aim is to get to the finish of this long rally in one piece and have lots of fun along the way. Highlight of the crew’s year so far was successfully competing in the AGL SA Rally of the Heartland, collecting finishers medals and receiving the Spirit of the Rally award.
