Argyle chases NZRC honours
- 29th May 2009, 1:47pm
The fast rocky roads of Otago proved a challenge to the experienced 2 times NZ Champion when on the last stage of Day 1 a rock crushed the exhaust pipe causing loss of power. A blown turbo on the last stage of the second day also meant valuable time was lost.
â€œThe car was competitive on the tighter stages but lacked some speed on the faster stages â€“ thereâ€™s room for improvement for the next ralliesâ€ says Argyle.
But by consistently finishing every stage and staying in touch with the leaders meant a comfortable placing and valuable points for the 4WD Open Class.
Argyle sits on 136 points with long time rival Andrew Hawkeswood on 74 points.
Geoff Argyle 136
Andrew Hawkeswood 74
Glenn Inkster 46
Lee Stringer 27
Steve Barker 27
Alex Kelsey 0
Adam Bligh 0
Argyle is now preparing for the Whangarei Rally on June 6th and 7th which is also part of the Asia Pacific Rally Championship.
â€œWeâ€™ll put on a new turbo, fix a few things and go in confident of another top resultâ€ say Argyle.
