The running of the South Australian Rally Championship event, the Robertstown Walky 100, has been hailed a huge success by most competitors following a tough day’s competition.

Leading the field home by a comfortable margin were Steve Glenney and Bernie Webb in their new Subaru WRX STi, with Matt Selley and Joanna Fuller in their WRX STi taking second.

The DNA Rallysport team of Declan Dwyer and Craig Adams fought their way back to third after an electrical problem had them as far back as the high twenties early in the rally.

“It is unbelievably frustrating sitting on the side of the road mid stage, trying to solve a really little problem,” Dwyer said. “It turned out to be a faulty circuit breaker that was cutting the fuel pump out. The problem was that it was taking a minute or so to fix it each time, and it happened three times!

“We pushed pretty hard after that,” reported co-driver Craig Adams. “We had a lot of time to make up, and with only another four stages in the rally, there was no time to waste.”

“Overall we’re very satisfied with the result,” continued Dwyer. “We reckon we lost about two and a half minutes with problems and we missed second place by 2m09s so it was an encouraging result nonetheless.”

The rally was run over nearly 120 competitive kilometres over eight stages.

DNA Rallysport is supported by Robot Technologies Australia, Detex Security, Tyrepower Blackwood, Flying Finish Motorsport, Backyard Billy and Fire Equipment and Training.
