TAUPO DUAL SPRINTS

A really good event on Sunday 4 Nov, with fine (if windy!) weather and a dry track.  We would like to thank all the people who turned out to help with this event.  The wind made it a bitterly cold day for the guys stuck out on the course - Bill Richardson and Colin Tofts on the start/finish flag post, Brent Hills, Ben Jones, Mike Guy and Rob Chandler on the other flag posts.  Mike Torr, David Loughlin and Colin Goodwin together with young Cooper McKay ran the dummy grid and provided FIV and recovery services (which fortunately weren't needed).  Roger Bailey and Joanne Kapua were our COC/ACOC and ran a great event, and Linda Loughlin and Brenda Grant took care of the timing and results.  A really big thank you to all these people.  We sure do appreciate your help.

29 competitors had a go and there was fantastic competition between the groups.  Rob Sutherland dragged out his Honda Integra for a run, and what a run! First overall after not running it for some years, so well done Rob.  He was closely followed by Jahl Marshall in his roadgoing M3 - only 500ths between them.  And then third was Neil Rogers in his giant killing little Peugeot - 3rd overall, just a second behind first.  What an effort! 

There was some interest and rivallry between Neil Rogers and Jordan Grant, who dual entered in each other's cars.  And in Class A in the Suzuki Jordan held sway over Neil who came second, followed up by Nick Middendorf in the ex Van Der Meys Honda CRX.  Good effort for his first go in the car.  And Caitlyn Bullock had a great day in her Honda Jazz.  She steadily got faster and faster and at the end of the day was a full 12 seconds faster than her practice run.  Really well done for a first time racing.

Class B was won by Rob in the Honda, followed by Neil in his Peugeot, and third was Jordan in Neil's Peugeot.  Derek Cecil also had a great day in his Altezza (which has been on a diet) coming home 4th in class.

Jahl Marshall won Class C and was followed home by Bob Hyslop in his RX2 with Basil Raynel third in class in his MX5.

Shane Tofts (RX7) and Chris Hawkes (Chev) had a ding dong battle in Class D, with Shane pipping Chris for first by 600ths and Richard Haakma from Auckland in a Porsche 944 came home for third in class.  He was followed up by Shane McConnell who was driving his M6 for the first time.  A very creditable fourth place for him.

Results are now posted on the results page.
