Autosport Mt Thomas – Gravel Sprint

A great piece of 4km forestry road, Mt Thomas is an awesome fast blast with a bit of everything, fast, technical climb then along a ridgeline through the forest and a twisty downhill finish.

Regulations: 2022-07-28th Mt Thomas Gravel Sprint Regs

Matt Penrose won the event in 2017 in his mighty Ex-Trevor Crowe WRX. He won convincingly with a margin of 5 seconds from Job Quantock who’s getting to grips with the Skoda AP4. Matt Summerfield was only 1 seconds behind in a borrowed Evo 3
