Adrian  Coppin  is  the  fresh  face  in  Australian rallying. At 27,  he is the youngest full-time  driver contesting  the  Australian  Rally  Championship (ARC),  and  youngest  driver  to  sign  with  Citroen Racing,  leading  their  first  Australian  campaign.

Currently  3rd in  the  Australian  Championship, Adrian  has  quickly  risen  to  the  top  of  his  sport, winning  Australian  titles  and  competing internationally,  just  in four short years  behind the wheel.

Adrian had his first taste of motorsport in the form of  circuit  racing,  but  quickly  sought  a  greater challenge,  one  answered  by  rallying.  Making  the switch  in  2009,  Adrian  took  class  honours  at  his
first ever event and hasn’t looked back since.

After  only  2  years  behind  the  wheel,  Adrian secured  second  in  class  at  his  international  debut at  the  Australian round of the World Rally Championship. The following year,  Adrian competed in selected rounds of the  ARC  and was hot favourite to take out the  junior  title. But his  hopes were  shattered  by  an unfortunate  early retirement from the  season,  due to team  constraints.  It wasn’t a year wasted though, with Adrian headhunted by Ford Australia during the off season to spearhead their return to the sport.

2013 saw  Adrian  back with  his own  team and scores to settle, debuting  Ford’s new  car  to the Australian market.  Making up for the dream taken from him the previous year, Adrian  won  the 2013 Australian 1600 Championship  and  the  season  title  for  Ford  Australia  in  the  category.  His  efforts  gained  international attention  and  he  was  invited  to  compete  in  Rally  Croatia  the  same  year,  making  his  European  Rally Championship debut, and marking another milestone in his comparatively short career.

After  his success  with  Ford,  Adrian  was  signed  by  Citroen  Australia  for the 2014 season.  The  prestigious manufacturer has claimed nine world championships  and  was  looking for  results  with  their new venture
down under.  Settling in well to the new  team, Adrian has  competed strongly so far this season, currentlysitting in third place.

In August, Adrian made his  international world championship debut at Rallye  Deutschland, rd 9 of this year World Rally Championship (WRC)  making him  one of only four  drivers  to represent Australia at this level. It’s an exciting time for Adrian  in a career which has seen him go  from strength to strength, rising quickly through the ranks and with an incredibly bright future ahead.
