Darby takes out Myall Stages Rally
- 1st September 2009, 9:01am
Dave Darby and Peter Roberts, driving a Mitsubishi Lancer EVO 6, took a 21 second victory in the Myall Stages Rally held last weekend.
A round of the NSW Rally Championship, the Myall Stages was held in dry, dusty and windy conditions.
It was the crew's first pacenoted rally, and starting car 2 on the road behind young gun and last year's winner Nathan Quinn, they jumped out of the blocks early
In the first stage, at 17.35km, they took over a second a kilometre off the rest of the field to set up a lead that they maintained for the remainder of the rally. A small transport mistake cost the team 10 seconds in road penalties, but the crew had enough speed to charge home for victory.
The boys would like to thank Hastings Concrete Tanks, Total Automotive Taree, Geoffrey Stewart Constructions and Cleavers Tyres for their support.
