Maguire and co-driver Zak Brakey’s Dodge Viper led the event from start to finish, adding to their trophy collection for the year, which also includes the Targa Tasmania win.

Second to Maguire, and the only car consistently on his pace was Jeff Morton and Daymon Nicoli.

The striking red Porsche took a few stage wins on Sunday’s stages as Maguire consolidated his lead of over 30 second through the short final day of competition.

Angus Kennard and Ian Wheeler maintained their third place to finish on the podium.

They were well clear of fourth place heading into Sunday and made it through to clinch the last podium placing.

The higher placings of the leaderboard had not changed at all through the approximately 30 competitive kilometres of Sunday.

Mark Griffith’s Mercedes Benz retained its fourth position and Mark Laucke continued on his way to fifth.

John O’Dowd and Paolo Buccini remained in sixth and seventh, while it was eighth placed Max McRae who created the big leaderboard change for Friday.

His Ford Fiesta R2 did not make it through the day’s first stage as it crashed heavily near the end of the Mt Lofty test.

While the crew were uninjured, their car was well off the road, and the damage so far unknown.

In the classic competition, Jack Monkhouse’s Datsun 180B SSS remained the standout vehicle.

His large lead did not stop him from continuing to set the pace as he took four out of the seven possible stage wins as he extended his lead beyond four minutes.

With Chloe Bojko calling the shots from the left hand seat, his first time competing on tarmac can be considered a success.

Andres Booker and Neil Branum’s Nissan Skyline was second, winning the Aldgate Valley test on their way to a great result.

Tom Dermody and Ryan Preston fended off Roger Lomman for third, with the battle continuing right until the last stage.

The gap at the end of the rally was just 6.7 seconds.

With the Shannons Adelaide Rally run and won, crews converged on East End where a huge party celebrated not just the winners and crews in the competition class, but all those who converged on Adelaide to make the rally possible.
