NSW title decider at Nat Cap Rally
- 9th November 2007, 11:43am
While the NSW Rally Championship has already been decided, with the Port Macquarie combination of Michael Boaden and Helen Cheers in an unassailable lead, this doesn’t mean the action will not be intense for outright honours. Crews will be driving flat-out to take the final round win of the year, and the bragging rights that goes along with the victory.
The battle for outright honours in the Traction Services ACT Regional Rally Series will be one of the major highlights of the event, with three drivers still in the championship hunt.
Bega’s Claude Murray, with the flying school teacher, Lizzy Ferme, in the co-driver’s seat, was in scintillating form in his Datsun 1600 at the recent Corsa di Mille Pini event, winning the event. Of other likely winners, the Canberra crew of Richard Leitis and Rob Mules have been working around the clock to repair the Lancer Evo1, which left the road at high speed while leading the Corsa event, causing considerable damage.
Trevor Stilling, in his Evo5, is also a chance to claim the 2007 Gold Cup, provided he wins the event, and the other two drivers finish lower down the field.
Adrian Dudok, in his fifteenth year as Clerk of Course for the National Capital Rally, is confident that this year’s event will be as exciting as ever.
“I’m really looking forward to it,” explained Adrian, “And I’m very happy that Trussme have shown the confidence to support this rally for the fourth year in a row.”
“We have selected the cream of ACT’s rally roads, and the public can expect to see some great rally action, with the best NSW and local crews battling it out.”
The 2007 Trussme National Capital Rally will commence at 11.30am on Saturday 17 November from the Weston Club in suburban Canberra, and finish back at the same venue at 7pm, after nearly 170 kilometers of competitive stages.
