ANDERSONS AUTOTEST #2  April 8th

Saturday morning started with little promise of fun day with rain falling Intermittantly,

however proceedings commenced on time at 11.00 am.
At times the sun came out and then an odd bout of rain fell but the event continued on smoothly.

31 competitors, including 10 juniors, enjoyed the slippery conditions with some of the more experienced drivers losing rhythm on their way and spinning out on the back corner.

The drivers lined up for the morning briefing in damp conditions
The course was swapped around several times.
The top 8 drivers for the day lined up for the King of the Paddock shootout in the NWCC Red Hyundai Lantra (the equaliser)

Consistency is the key to a good result at the end of the day.

Outright winner of the day was Stephen Turner.

The top 8 shootout for King of the Paddock was tightly contested, with the first four within three tenths of a second, but Jarom Rhind won out to take the crown.

NEW CLUB CAR - REBUILD & SOCIAL EVENINGS

New Club Car - Junior Development and social evenings
Thanks to a very generous donation by Eddie Maguire, our club is now in possession of a Hyundai Lantra rally car.  The car was one of two built by Wayne Bell for Hyundai Australia to compete in the 1994 Asia Pacific championship, in which it won the formula two category, so it comes with some interesting history. The car will be ideal for juniors or club members to compete at various club events in and could even be used for other purposes such as zero car in rallies or promotion of our club....

Before the Lantra can be used however, it needs a general tidy up and some. . . .

The event was open to regular members as well. There were enough available places within the entry limit, with approximately 50 contestants enjoying the freezing cold conditions. Can't say the same for the officials out in the blustery cold conditions.

.The event was run on the concrete skip pan area at rear of the pits. .
