Round 2 of the Tauranga Hire Day/Night Sprint was held on Saturday 28 Feb, and again a good field of 28 cars took to the forest roads. And again it was very dry and dusty. Phil Campbell was looking to be the inaugural PF Automotive Day/Night Sprint Champion, but with his car being refreshed for the coming NZRC season, he was dual driving with David Loughlin in the Subaru H6. There was hot competition from Chris Tregilgas and Phil Jones and the scene was set for a great showdown. Unfortunately, the H6 lost fourth gear on the first night run and Phil didn't get to set a time in the dark. This left the field open for the inaugural championship win to go to Chris Tregilgas in his Subaru WRX. Well done Chris. In the 2WD section the mighty Nissan Skyline of Shane Wright lead the field, and Shane took out the 2WD trophy. Well done to Shane.
