It was a very dusty last event for the 2015 season at the Okuku autocross.

Autocross #3 21st Jun 2015

Our third Autocross for the 2015 season. Damp, patchy conditions made it tough to pick good lines and braking points. Many drivers got unstuck and made mistakes. Mike Pentecost drove calm and clean to take a well deserved 1st place overall in his immaculate works-replica Mini, leaving some embarrassed modern 4WD's in his wake.
