29 Apr – Grass Autocross

A Mini wins again! This time it was Daniel Males who won 1st overall in his gold Mini, well done! Mike Pentecost, also driving a Mini, made a costly mistake, going the wrong way at the end of the last run, Mike had a huge lead on the field before that point. Well done to class winners 0-1300cc Class 1 Mike Pentecost (Mini), 1301-1600cc Class 2 Matt Summerfield (Corolla) and Road Car Class 5 Les Summerfield (C.L.T Impact Offroader).

Well done to all who turned up and helped out.
