TMMI MOTORKHANA/AUTOCROSS

Results are now posted for the great afternoon at TMMI yesterday.  Hot, dry and very very dusty - especially for our dedicated band of timekeepers at the motorkhana.  We can't thank you enough Gayle, Joanne, Cathy and Shane (who was chief cone fixer!).  By the end of the motorkhana everyone was the same colour and only their height gave you a clue to who was who!  Thanks so much guys.  

Some tough courses meant that there was not much joy for the 4WD contingent, with only one in the top five.  Good on you Ben coming third, behind the very quick pair of Neil Rogers - 1st in his Peugeot and the returning Richard Galbraith - second in his Toyota Startlet.  There was only 11 10ths between them!

And then there was the autocross and again a very very dusty track, with Darren, Colin and David out there being covered with the clouds of dust that rained down.  There's an apprentice who's going to get some really $$##ty jobs on Monday cause he covered his boss in a huge cloud of dust!  But there were still some really great rivalries going on.  Anton thought he'd give up after two runs and a flat tyre, but that Legacy beat him by a second on the 2nd run - so of course he had to go again!  And the brothers Grant who were sharing a car were egging each other on and on.  But out in front Phil Jones sailed away from the pack with a solid 4 second win over Jordan Grant.  JP drove into third place, not without some excitement along the way though, which led him to decide two runs was enough.  New member Glenn King drove his WRX into fourth on his first time on the track which is a great effort, and how about the spectacular drive from Joel Fraser in his Honda Civic coming in fifth overall.  A great effort in amongst all those 4WD's.

All in all a great afternoon at the Park and we look forward to the next one.
