20 August – Kirwee Autocross

It was a surprise to have such good weather leading up to the Kirwee Autocross with the amount of rain and other weather bombs hitting the country at the moment. A field of 18 drivers, from 3 different car clubs, took to the paddock for another round of the Interclub series. Wayne Scott took overall honours in his shared super budget 1984 Mazda Familia. The car was apparently very lucky to get through scrutineering and was described as “a piece of sh*t” but proved that in the right hands, it was a weapon – an amazing effort! Coming home in 2nd place was CCC member Dwight Parlane in his very tidy looking Honda, seeing off new Autosport member Daniel Powell, who managed 1st 4WD car and 3rd overall in his silver Lancer GSR on his first outing in the car. Ben Bodley clipped a marker on his second run earning him a 5 second penalty but had the classic 4WD 323 looking very fast on run three. The Mazda had been returned to a more original state for the upcoming Silver Fern Rally. Drew and Stacey Jeffrey were having a huge battle between themselves for bragging rights with the CRX. Stacey drawing first blood on run one then clipping a finishing cone and copping a penalty. Drew was very happy with his 4 second win. Alastair and son, Nick Frizzell had a close fight with Nick winning runs one and two and Alastair putting together a solid drive on his final run.

Thanks goes to The Frizzell Family for lending us the use of their fantastic paddock, and to Drew and Stacey for their help setting up the event and to Richard Towse for doing the scrutineering. We had a little issue with the spreadsheet for the final times but the correct ones are now online.
