Leg Four of the Australasian Safari has been a day of getting down to business for the autos with the gaps widening at the top of the field.

Craig Lowndes and Kees Weel further consolidated their first place position, 19 minutes ahead of the field.

A good day was had by Bruce Garland and Harry Suzuki in their Isuzu DMAX as they move up two places to third fastest in the auto field, 32 minutes behind the leaders.

Darren Green and Wayne Smith also had a strong day, now in the second fastest position, also moving two places up the field.

Father and son team Des and Richard Harrington have moved into fifth position.

It’s tighter in the moto division, with the top four placings within 12 minutes of eachother.

The top international competitor is currently Swedish competitor Annie Seel currently in 16th position of a field of 40.

Classifications for Stage 10 in regards to the moto category are under review by the event organisers.  This means that for now the start order for Leg 5 is based on the classifications at the end of Stage 9.

Considered one of the world’s great endurance events, the Australasian Safari is travelling from Southern Cross in the wheatbelt through to the historic Western Australian goldfields, desert, rugged bush and coastal sand dunes, finishing at Esperance.
