Rally veterans take Myall Lakes Rally victory
Veterans Ian Hill and Phil Bonser have showed that age is no deterrent to success by winning the weekend’s Myall Lakes Rally in New South Wales.
The pair were stars of Australian rallying in the 1980s, winning the Alpine Rally in a Ford Escort RS1800.
Three decades on they’ve proved that they still have the speed, taking a narrow eight second win over the Subaru Impreza WRX of Scott McCloy and Ron McMahonan.
Bruce Durham brought his Toyota Celica home in third place in the event, ahead of Ian Wilson (Pajero 4WD) and David Hills (Escort).
