Gerard McConkey and co-driver Russell Hewitt have won the KCF Rallysport Short Course Challenge - Burnett Sprint.  The event, based in Benarkin, Qld, was a pacednoted rally using two stages of forestry roads, finishing with a larger 'combo' stage.  The results were determined over the best two passes of each of the stages, plus the larger stage time, providing a different format for competitors. On the pace early was McConkey/Hewitt in their 1999 Subaru WRX.  The pair won every stage bar the last, also winning the Four wheel drive class. Coming second outright and 4WD was Carey Cahal and Ronnie Bustard in a 2009 Mitsubishi Evo 9. Carey/Bustard tried hard to reign in the winners with a fastest time on the final stage, but could only reduce the gap to 14 seconds.
