Drama surrounds shortened Tunbridge Trial

The Victorian Club Rally Series’ Daryl Tunbridge Trial has finished under a cloud of confusion, with official results not expected until later in the week.

Victory looks to have gone to Brian Newton and Mitch Garrad in a Honda Civic, four minutes clear of Geoff Hale and Jenny Pollock in a VW Golf.

However, a number of delays on the night meant that the event was cut short.

The event permit expired at midnight on Saturday night, so once the clock struck 12 the rally was officially over.

VCRS leaders, Cody Richards and Matt Dillon, eventually finished seventh after hitting a kangaroo and damaging their driving lights on their Escort.

Provisional third place has gone to Philip and Damien Wilson in a Toyota Soarer.

The Steve Richards Memorial Introductory Rally, held in conjunction, was won by Alan Upton in a Peugeot 306, ahead of Aaron Bowering’s Subaru WRX, and Jarryd Sweeney’s Hyundai Excel.
