Gallery: Hawkeswood smashes field in Pukekohe gravel hillclimb

Jack Hawkeswood blitzed the field in the Pukekohe Car Club’s gravel hillclimb event on Sunday, taking a dominant victory.

The NZRC regular drove his Mazda2 AP4 with fellow driver Tony McConachy in the co-driver's seat, with a fastest run nearly 14 seconds quicker than anyone else.

Second place went to Steve Goodare in a Datsun Sunny, with Andrew Elder third in a Lancer Evo 5.

The event was held in wet and slippery conditions, with a wide range of vehicles competing. The field featured everything from Hawkeswood's AP4, through to Ford Escort Mk 1s, open-wheel buggies and four-wheel drive rally cars, and just about everything else in between.
