Two major crashes delayed the opening stage of Classic Adelaide during this morning’s second leg from Adelaide to Victor Harbour.

Newcastle driver Richard Woodward  rolled his 1969 Monaro GTS about 500 metres from the end of the 7 km Coromandel Stage, severely damaging the classic Holden. Both he and co-driver David McCrow were shaken but reported to be OK.

The car was removed from the stage and transported back to the rally service park at Wayville Showgrounds were the crew is surveying the damage.

The crash delayed the stage for approximately 40 minutes, however only minutes after competition resumed the Porsche 944 S2 of Queenslander Russ Kempnich and Peter Burrey of NSW ploughed into the armco fencing approximately 2,7km into the Coromandel stage blocking the road and again bringing the stage to a halt.

The Porsche crew were taken to  hospital for observation but are OK. Organisers  neutralised the stage and transported all remaining crews   to the next stage  to get the rally back on schedule.

The cars of Rex Broadbent in a Porsche 911 and  Jim Richards in a Porsche 944 continue to fight for the lead as they prepare to  tackle stages on the return  to Adelaide from Victor Harbour this afternoon.
