17 Apr – Autocross #2

Our second Autocross was again at our popular Okuku paddock. It was round 2 of our Autosport Autocross Championship.

Congratulations to Karl Celeste for taking out 1st overall in his Mini, just able to hold off a late charge from Matt Penrose in 2nd place who got lost on run 1. An impressive Darryl Malloch had to fight a close battle for 3rd. Well done to our class winners Adrian Harris in his Moke Class 1 0-1300cc, Matthew Sisson in his Familia Class 2 1301-1600cc, Ari Pettigrew in his BMW Class 3, Jeff Judd in his WRX Class 4 4WD, Ben Gill in his WRX Class 5 Road Car.
