A Wilde Grip on 2WD
TOM WILDE and MADELIN KIRKHOUSE lead the driver and co-driver standings after three rounds of the Onslow Constructing Western Australian Rally Championship.
In second outright –
just two points behind – are Michael Steele
and Tracey Dewhurst
in their Natrad Malaga Japline 2000 Subaru WRX STI. Tom and Madelin
also have a firm grip on the 2WD championship
in the Verandah Apartments 1993 Honda Civic. After last weekend’s MRF Tyres Boddington Rally they’re just ahead
of Razvan Vlad
and Daymon Nicoli’s MAXYRally.com.au 2004 Ford Fiesta.
Last minute entrants Dean Herridge
and Jimmy Marquet
took the outright win over 94 competitive kilometres around Boddington in near perfect conditions.
“The car ran perfectly
and we didn’t need to change a thing in the 2008 Subaru Impreza WRX STI,” Dean
said. Maximum Motorsport
had prepared the car for Graham Iddles
who was unable to compete due to a date clash.
“The car was available
at the last minute,” Dean
said. “I was fairly nervous
going into this as I hadn’t done a gravel rally in four years. The last was a one-off event in Collie and, funny enough, it was Jimmy beside me then too. We’ve only done two events together!”
On the second step
of the Boddington podium were Nick Box
and Todd Payne
in their Allstar Garage 2005 Mitsubishi Lancer Evo IX (above).
Clubman Cup winners
were MAXY Engineering’s Brock Nicoli
and Daniel Adams
in their 1994 Hyundai Lantra.
Less than two minutes behind was MAXYRally’s Chris Bowley
and Stephen Wade
in their 2007 Ford Fiesta ST,
with True Blue Alarms’ Andrew Percival
and Jim Pearce
in their 1997 Honda Civic,
of the 2017 Onslow Contracting Western Australian Rally Championship
is the Quit Experts Cup
around Collie, July 8.
