day/night sprint series rnd 2

Well, what an afternoon/evening it was.  After the very changeable weather all week, the day turned out cloudy and windy but there was only one brief shower of rain at the beginning of the third day run, that lasted about 5 mins, and then it was gone.  The day turned into a beautiful evening, with the wind dropping and although it was certain cool, there was no more rain.

Another great event with a very good turnout of competitors, with some from TVCC and also Geoff and Sara made the trek from Wellington again, to compete at the event.  Great effort you guys and thanks for coming and helping make the event a success.

There was a wide variety of cars there as you will see from the results - 11_Sep_21_DayNight_Sprint_Results.pdf, and the runaway Overall winner was Ben Thomasen in his Subaru WRX.  However there was a great battle between Lee England in his EVO 4 (who advised he had new tyres for the first time in ages) and Jordan Grant in his Suzuki Swift.  They ended up 2nd and 3rd overall with Jordan only 500ths of a second behind.  

In the day runs Ben took the honours from Phil Jones and Lee England with Graeme Bjerring of TVCC coming home 4th and Jordan 5th.  In the night runs it was again Ben at the top of the field, while Jordan's young eyes brought him home 2 seconds ahead of Lee England.  But it wasn't enough to depose Lee from overall second place.

A big thank you to Jordan, Ben and David for taking our Guests from the Whakatane District Council and 1XX Radio Station for rides.  We had organised this to coincide with our Rally Bay of Plenty to say thank you for the help and support the Council and 1XX are providing with our rally.  It's fair to say they all enjoyed their rides.

And a very big thank you to all our volunteer marshalls and helpers.  We had a great turnout for this event and it makes everything work when you have enough hands to help.  So big thanks to those guys.  Particularly to our friendly photographer friend Scotty Johnson, who turned up and was put to work making sure everyone scanned/signed into the venue.  Thanks Scotty.  We're looking forward to seeing your photos.
